SHELBURNE SUMMER PARADE IN JEOPARDY.
Shelburne Town Council’s first meeting of the new year held many controversial issues and high notes. Of great concern is the problematic possibility that Shelburne’s coveted and well loved summer parade held during what was once called Fiddle Fest, now referred to as Shelburne Heritage Music Festival, may NOT HAPPEN. This annual summer parade traditionally run by the Kinsmen, a charitable organization known for working hard behind the scenes of many events, is sadly lacking membership and without the support of local members, the work needed to provide the parade that is signature to Shelburne’s fabric of unique tradition and identity, just can’t be accomplished. For more information about the Kinsmen visit their website as they are actively seeking help from the public to keep the parade tradition alive.
Also covered in this meeting: Reports from Shelburne Town Planner, Steve, Sewer Issues Created Decades Ago Bringing By-Law And Possible New Law Issues To Light, Home Owners Complaint Regarding Neighbour’s On Deck Hot Tub Gazebo & Drainage Issues, Shelburne Police in Support Of Special Olympics & Polar Plunge Announced To Take Place During Shelburrr Fest.
