Waterbury Vacancy on Harwood School Board - Waterbury Parents: Please consider becoming involved in the greater school community as a School Board Member!  Due to a resignation, there is a vacancy on the Harwood School Board which must be filled as soon as possible.  Applicants must be residents of the Town of Waterbury (which includes Waterbury Center), and not be employed by Harwood or any of the other districts in the Supervisory Union.  The Harwood Union School Board meets on the third, and sometimes the first, evenings of each month.  Letters of interest should be sent to the chair of the Waterbury Town Board, Scott Mackey, at   

Are you a student aged 12 to 17 who would like to help the Waterbury Public Library choose new young adult books and plan programs and activities for teens? Then join the WPL Teen Advisory Group (TAG) and brainstorm some new ideas to make the library more teen friendly. Participation in the group can count towards required community service, or “Change the World” projects, and it will look great on a college resume! The next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 18 from 3:30-5 PM. Snacks will be provided! The next TAG meetings are scheduled for October 16 and November 20 at the same times. For more information, contact Michelle at 244-7036, or email:
