NEW (OLD) BUSINESS
R. McDevitt asked about the status of the Town Memorial an issue previously put to the Board of Selectmen. While some have considered the Grange as a possible location; o the rs lament the lack of parking and the fact that the survival of an active Grange in Lamoine is presently an unanswered question.
Further consideration of a Town Memorial should confront this question: Which comes first a Chairman willing to lead the initiative or a selection of a site? Clearly, before progress can be made, an energetic and willing Chairman must be designated.
The meeting adjourned at 8:40 pm .
