Summer greetings, Brimfield. It is nice to see the warm weather finally here. This is a special month for my husband and me. We will be celebrating our 57th wedding anniversary. I can't believe how fast the years have gone by. June is a great month for weddings and anniversaries and I would like to wish all of you who are celebrating a wedding or an anniversary congratulations.
Here is the June poem for you to enjoy:
"June is the month of dreams, I think; Gardeners watch their roses, pink.
Birds leave the nest by their wings And songbirds learn just how to sing.
Brides have planned for the perfect day when to their love their vows will say.
June is a month of graduations; Proud parents give congratulations.
The birth of baby girls and boys Makes us look at tiny toys.
First communions are realized; Decisions taken to change lives.
Recitals seem to be everywhere; Dancing and music is in the air.
June is the month to sing your joy -- the month of dreams for you to enjoy."
Written by Joan Adams Burchell.

Summer is upon us and we will be seeing basketball hoops go up. Remember you must place the hoops 10 feet from the road and this includes cul-de-sacs. The hoops can be confiscated if they are in the road right-of-way which is 10 feet from where pavement of the road begins. Have a safe summer.
This spring there are a lot of door to door vendors such as roofing, lawn grooming, and pest control, etc. These vendors must register with the Brimfield Police Department and receive a badge that they can show to you. If in doubt, call the Brimfield Police Department to see if they are registered.
The last day of school for the Field School District is June 8, so please drive carefully and watch for children outside playing or crossing the street. We want all to have a safe and enjoyable summer.
