Join us at the weekly Lebanon Farmers' Market this Saturday from 9:00 AM to noon in front of Town Hall.
The annual Summer Dancefest in July was a wonderful success and fun time for all. Weather caused it to be moved from Saturday to Sunday, but it was an awesome evening capped off with a great fireworks display. Many thanks to the committee for all their hard work! This event is a success in large part to the generous financial donations from residents. Should you wish to donate, funds are still being accepted.
The next big summer event, the Lebanon Country Fair, is quickly approaching. Each year, the Lebanon Country Fair welcomes visitors from all over New England. For 59 years, The Lebanon Lions Club has provided the area with a weekend of entertainment, exhibits, competitions and a taste of Eastern Connecticut. We hope you'll choose to join us on August 9, 10 and 11th. Hours are Friday 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM, Saturday 8:30 AM to 11:00 PM, and Sunday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. You can see the most up-to-date event listing at www.lebanoncountryfair.org.
It’s not too late to purchase a pass to swim for the pool at the Community Center. Open swim pool hours are Monday through 1:00 PM to 5:30 PM, and Saturdays 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Passes may be purchased at Town Hall or at the pool.
The Farmers’ Market continues to be every Saturday in front of Town Hall from 9:00 am to noon. August 17 is “Local Omelet Day” with free omelet samples and August 24 is “Kids Fun Day” with games, music and Farmers’ Cow. Items sold at the Market include vegetables, fruits, cheeses, meats, honey products, maple syrup, flora and fauna, baked goods, prepared foods, sweets, soaps, artistry and more! Come try a free sample or purchase a freshly-cooked breakfast sandwich, hamburger, or hot dog.
Taking advantage of good weather, the Department of Public Works will be doing more road work. Expect to see continued roadside mowing and chipsealing. We also expect to see the completion of work on Olenick Road and Card Street around the end of this month. Please drive slowly in our summer work zones for our safety and yours. Stay alert and be on the lookout for our personnel, signs, trucks, bright-colored shirts, and slow-moving equipment at any time.
As we move to the end of summer, our Social Services department is seeking donations for its annual Back-to-School program. Between July 30th and August 6th please consider donating NEW backpacks, lunch bags, loose leaf paper packages, 3 ring binders, (1”-1 ½” size) dividers, notebooks, pocket folders, pencils, pens, erasers, highlighters, markers, colored pencils, crayons, pencil cases, rulers, calculators, glue sticks, etc. Please no used items. Monetary donations to the program are also being accepted. Checks can made out to Town of Lebanon Social Services with Back to School Program in the memo line.
We are also excited to announce that we will be debuting a completely new Town website sometime in the next month. The new LebanonCT.Gov is expected to launch the first week of September. The new site should be easier to navigate and allow you to quickly find the most searched-for items such as meeting minutes, maps and property cards, online tax payments, and town events.
We hope everyone enjoys the remainder of summer!
