LOVED having TM on a Saturday! Would like to see it start earlier and be done by dinner, though :-) I think the turnout was great, but not everyone came back after the 2 hour dinner break. Thank you to Moderator Cimino, the Selectmen, Advisory and all the boards who so tirelessly work and prepare for our TM, and for the countless hours they put in throughout the year.
