BRAINTREE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

 

At the 2018 Town Meeting, Braintree voters decided to try moving Town Meeting Day to the Saturday before the traditional “first Tuesday in March,” in the hopes that more voters would be able to attend. We hope that this change allows you to more easily participate in the decisions made that affect Braintree residents. We are also holding the meeting at the Braintree School so that we can offer childcare to those with young children.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE MEETING:

  • Town Meeting will be followed by a potluck lunch. Please bring a dish to share while you catch up with and meet new neighbors. Please keep in mind that we will not have access to the kitchen at the school, so dishes should be ready to be served. There will be a donation bucket for coffee and paper products, with all proceeds going to the Town Hall Fund.
  • Childcare will be provided on site during the meeting for children ages 3-6 years old.

 

Thank you for participating in your local town government, and we hope to see you at Town Meeting this year. If you have any questions about Town Meeting, feel free to call the Town Office at 728-9787 and speak with the Administrative Assistant, Holly Jarvis
