The Ones Who Made it out Alive!

Here's a photo of a few wild turkeys from a flock of about 40 who ventured up the driveway of a Manchaug Pond home in the Douglas woods a couple days after Thanksgiving.

Thank you to the vegetarian photographer for sending this in!

Manchaug Pond Dam Subject of Grant for Hydropower Study

Sutton Town Administrator Jim Smith reports the town has been awarded the Green Communities' Grant in the amount of $140,000.  Included in the list of items earmarked to benefit from these monies is a feasibility study looking at hydropower at the Manchaug Pond and Stevens dams.

The grant was part of the administrator and selectman's decision and push to align the town's goals with the Green Community initiative. Selectman Geraghty stated the grant was very substantial for a town the size of Sutton.
