EMERGENCY RESOURCES DURING POWER OUTAGES
We will open our emergency shelter at the Church in Huntington Center when there's no power so everyone has access to heat, clean water, showers, cooking facilities, WiFi, and more. It's a cozy place to spend the day and a safe place to spend the night. Click here for more information or call Barbara Elliott at 434-4779.

DOG REGISTRATIONS for 2016 
2016 tags will go on sale on January 4. The registration fee is $19 or $13 (spayed /neutered). It has increased by $1 because the payment to the State of Vermont for each dog registered has gone up $1. Come in and get a new shiny heart for your canine companion(s). Current rabies certificate needs to be presented; call the Town Clerk's Office to see if the rabies certificate for your dog is current.

HUNTINGTON HOLIDAY FOOD BOXES & GIFT BAGS
Delivery of the Holiday Food Boxes and Gift Bags was done on Saturday, December 19. Thanks to the many volunteers who shopped, assembled and delivered food and good cheer to neighbors, families of all ages. And, thanks to all who donated money to go toward the purchase of fruit, vegetables and other items. The crew took a break after the boxes were filled for a photo. Here is a photo (taken by Harry Frank) of about 2/3s of the people who worked on this community project with about a third of the food to be delivered.

HUNTINGTON COOKBOOKS
Here is a great idea for a fun gift. With over 400 recipes, photos and historical information, the new Huntington community cookbook is not to be missed. Contact Sandy Heyman at BPMS (434-2074). Click here for more details.
