Young Historians: Town Meeting

In the 1930’s Vermont held Town Meeting Day the first Tuesday in March. Everyone had off from work and the schools were closed. Voters met all day to talk about town and school issues and to vote. Today, Cavendish Town Meeting is the first Monday evening of March. A “Warning” is sent to all voters at least two weeks before the meeting. This way they know what issues they will be voting on.

In keeping with this tradition, the Young Historians will meet on March 10 to have their own town meeting. Below is the Warning for this meeting.
