Dog Registration

Toby is excited because, for the first time in many years, his Sharon dog tag is not going to be a circle!  At the end of the 2021/2022 School Year, I had the privilege of visiting with all the 5th Graders across our three elementary schools.  We discussed civics, what a Town Clerk does, and the importance of voting.  We also took a vote on what the shape of the 2023 Dog License would be.  The options they had to choose from were a bone, a dog, a heart, and a triangle.  The results were as follows:


Bone won with 59% of the vote!


I had a great time with the kids and I look forward to next year’s Dog Tag Election.
