Request for Quotes

The Town of Wendell is seeking an individual or contractor to demolish and remove from the property a shed and its contents located behind the Meetinghouse at the Wendell Town Common. The shed is approximately 18' by 10'.

Much of the shed is constructed with chestnut lumber which may have some value and will become the property of the individual or contractor doing this work. The Town hopes that this value may lower the cost of the project.

Please respond with written price quotes on or before April 18, 2017 by 3 pm to Town Coordinator Nancy Aldrich at P.O. Box 41, Wendell, MA 01379 or via email at . Contact Nancy with any questions or to schedule a showing of the shed.

 

Audubon Camperships Continue

E-mail Print

Mass Audubon owns many acres of land in Wendell, but as a non-profit organization they are not required to pay taxes on this property. Several years ago, in recognition of this fact, they provided the opportunity for some Wendell students to attend Camp Wildwood in Rindge, New Hampshire, at a greatly reduced price; this opportunity is being made available again this year. Wildwood combines traditional camping activities, such as kayaking, hiking, and swimming, with the chance to explore the environment and learn about the natural world. The regular fee for this one-week overnight program is over $1000; through the Mass Audubon campership, the family will be asked to pay only $50 of this cost.

In order to be considered for this campership, which is available to Wendell residents who will be between the ages of 9 and 14 this summer, the Selectboard is once again asking interested students to write a 300-500 word essay on the importance of nature. The Selectboard and the Conservation Commission will then choose the essay that best captures the spirit of this theme. Essays are due by April 5, 2017. Please send them to:
The Wendell Selectboard
P.O. Box 41
Wendell, MA 01379

For more information, contact Nancy Aldrich, the Town Coordinator, at 978-544-3395.

Wendell FlagWendell FlagWendell's new town flag, which was jointly designed by Wendell residents Donna Horn and Pam Richardson, was displayed for the first time at Old Home Day in 2015. Nancy Aldrich, our Town Coordinator, sewed the original flag, which currently hangs in the Selectboard office. As seen in these photographs, a replica of this flag was produced and now hangs proudly in the State House Hall of Flags in Boston, joining flags from cities and towns across the Commonwealth.
