Townships to hold votes
WELCOME — This will be the last column I write this year since next week will be 2018.
Please have a happy and prosperous new year. Drive safely and don’t drink and drive.
The senior citizens usually meet the first Monday of each month but since Monday will be a holiday they will meet instead for a noon potluck Tuesday at the Welcome Legion Hall with fun to follow. All area seniors are invited to join them that day.
Township voters are reminded that Affidavits of Candidacy may be filed with the township clerks for a supervisor’s three-year term and a clerk’s two-year term in each township from 1-5 p.m. Jan. 2 through Jan. 16. Contact the clerk in your township to file.
Clerks are: Rutland Township — Roxanne Wedel at 1477 208th Ave., Fairmont; Rolling Green Township — Dan Bebernes at 1544 90th St., Fairmont; and Manyaska Township — Diane Glidden at 825 State Highway 263, Welcome.
