For those who don't know, there apparently were roving vandals on Main St Monday night. They shot out our plate glass window at 544 Main St., and, from what I've heard, busted some car windows as well.

Last winter, the runoff of sewage flowing across the hiking trail in Madam Brett Park -- even after a light rainstorm -- was terrible. Yesterday (11/23), though we had some pretty heavy rain, the hiking trail was perfectly clean.
In the spirit of the season, let's give thanks to the folks who spent a lot of time and money and effort (it couldn't have been a pleasant job -- we're talking about sewage) to re-engineer the pipes to make the hiking trail safe and clean.
From all of us at The Sargent and Downing Gardens, We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving Day!
Thank you for your support throughout the year.

It's quite a stunning looking plant, I can see why it was imported for ornamental reasons:
