Learning how Amherst functions!

Amherst Democrats hosted an Overview of Amherst Town Government on Wednesday, March 15th at SHS.  Town Administrator Jim O’Mara let us know there are close to 20 boards, committees and commissions involved in running the town, not counting the school districts.  Want to be more involved with our community?  Opportunities always exist, some requiring election or appointment, others just a phone call or email stating your willingness to help.  Terri Behm and Lisa Eastland shared the many ways in which they have volunteered and encouraged others to do the same. Where do your interests lie: finances, the environment, education, holiday celebrations?  There are opportunities in all categories.  Amherst does not work without volunteers!  Go to amherstnh.gov and check out the News tab for current openings. You’ll have fun, learn and make many new friends.
