Please Vote YES on Article #29!!

Please Vote YES on Article #29!!

Just a reminder to our Springfield members and friends:  the Springfield Art & Historical Society’s request for special funding will be on the Springfield Town Ballot again this year.  This request is the same as last year, $9,500.  In the bigger scope of the total town budget, this is not a large amount of money but, to the Society, it makes a huge difference in what we can do to improve, protect, and display the town’s history.  So once again we ask Springfield voters to please vote YES on Article #29.  We will be at Riverside voting day, if you have questions.
