The event is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., with live music until at least 8 p.m., followed by an open jam and open mic.

Broad Brook Grange will hold its annual Guilford Pre-Town Meeting on Thursday, February 20, 7:00 pm at the Grange hall.
This is the only opportunity for voters to hear details of the articles which will be presented at the Town and School District Meetings, and to meet and discuss issues with the selectboard and school board all in one evening, in advance of Town Meeting.
In addition, candidates for town and school board offices are urged to attend to introduce themselves to the voters. State law prevents any “campaigning” by candidates at Town Meeting, when an Australian ballot is used, as in this instance. So this is the only time before the vote for the public to meet and hear the candidates all at once.

My son was hit by a vehicle Wednesday 8-23-13 in Guilford near Paul’s Road. He was headed to work on his bicycle. He was transported to BMH ER.

We have seen too many injuries and deaths in Windham County in the past year caused by vehicles, to pedestrians and bikers.

It’s in the Calemdar already, but I got the feeling iBrattleboro wants Guilford news & this seems to be it for this week. (I do see your note in the guidelines saying events should go in the Calendar, maybe not here, so am not sure you want this here, but anyway!!!)
This Thursday at Broad Brook Grange at 7 pm is the annual pre-town meeting. First the Selectboard, then School board, will outline the items they’re going to be bringing to the voters on Mar 5. This is good venue to ask questions in an informal setting. Candidates for Town & School Board offices are also asked to attend to introduce themselves. Guilford doesn’t get as fancy as having a candidates’ forum, so this is it.
As you can see, you have a brand new section of the site to publish Guilford news, events, and commentary. Your stories will still go on the homepage first, like all others, but now they can all be found in one place.
Chesterfield, Deerfield Valley, Dummerston, Hinsdale, Marlboro, Putney, Vernon, and West River Valley are also included in the regional section.
