Joe Capolino should correct his article on the July Fairland Trustee's meeting as the chief of police was not at the meeting but quoted on several items and there was a statement by Mr. Harris that was an opinion held by many people in Fairland and as an election for trustee's is not too far away, should not be swept under the rug.
We are accepting donations for the fireworks fundraiser. We would also like to invite everyone to attend the fundraiser.
