Almost two feet of snow sits on the Village Green where not so long ago a thousand people enjoyed good food, games and fun products. It seems like a short time ago! Skiers are flying down the slopes of the Proctor Ski Area where the fireworks were launched much to the delight of spectators. Snowmobiles zoom along the rail trail where a few months ago runners in shorts and t-shirts were competing in the Firecracker 5K! Snowbanks line the Main Street of town where thousands of people were standing to view our 75th 4th of July Parade.
Just last week the temperatures were below zero. On July 4th, the average temperature is 82 degrees! This is what we all have to look forward to and the July 4th committee is working even today to make this year's celebration one of the best.
Everyone can get involved! You can suggest a parade theme via Facebook or by dropping your suggestion in the Red Box at the town office. You could also join the committee and help plan the event or you could volunteer to help on the big day! Come to our next meeting on February 7 at 7 PM at the Andover Fire Station. The committee has many tricks up their sleeve for this year's celebration. Stay tuned to upcoming articles for more information and/or check out our Facebook page.
Note: The banner for the Children's Parade is missing! It was last seen near the Andover Fire Station. If anyone knows of its whereabouts, please call Beth Frost at 735-5562.
