Daily 5: Monday Fun, and a Memorial Parade Reminder

The parade in Montville is May 20 this year!

1. Happy Monday! Looks like we're in for some sun today! Expect a high in the mid-60s.

2. Start making plans NOW to attend the Memorial Day parade in Montville! The parade is NOT on Memorial Day weekend, but the Sunday before - May 20 - which should make it possible for everyone to attend.

3. The WPCA is scheduled to meet tonight at 7 p.m. in the Town Council chamber. Two presentations are scheduled, one on solar panels at the treatment center, and the other on anerobic digesting. Honestly, these should be interesting!

For the past few weeks, I've been searching for fun videos and photos and what have you for Montville Patchers on Fridays. But it occurred to me this week that the fun is probably needed just as much - or more! - on Mondays. So here you go! Check the videos above for

 Thought for the day, from Happy Publishing

If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting, find
One self-denying deed, one word
That eased the heart of him who heard,
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine where it went–
Then you may count that day well spent.

But if, through all the livelong day,
You’ve cheered no heart, by yea or nay–
If, through it all
You’ve nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one face–
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost–
Then count that day as worse than lost.

- George Eliot
