Local Facebook pages have been abuzz in part because fewer than 9 percent of the town's 30,384 registered voters took part in Tuesday's referendum, with 70 percent in favor of school renovations. To those who say they didn't know about the vote, we say -- subscribe to OneManchester. Or at least click on the newsletter link that we post on social media every Thursday night. It's a great way to stay connected and the price is right.
Pride in Manchester, Cont.
Things got rolling last weekend and there's lots still to come including the duck race, bike rodeo and town-wide tag sale. To help you plan we have the flier right here. Also, right below are pics from last Saturday night and further down photos from tonight's Imagine Main festivities.
Yep, the concert in the park drew a big crowd and we've got more photos on the district FB page (including from the art show, the senior dance and more).
The meeting is at Lincoln Center at 7 p.m. and will include a presentation and discussion about the high school nickname. MHS students are among those who believe 'Indians' should be retired and replaced. (Here's Harbinger reporter Aislinn Gara Grady's latest story on the subject.)
Also: We've got more town events listed in our 'OneMan Central' log (and the town events calendar is another trove of information). As for the schools, you can also check out MPS Central, which lists future district happenings, half-days and more. And if we are missing anything, anywhere, just email firstname.lastname@example.org to add an item.
