Rabies clinic Saturday

A rabies vaccination clinic for dogs and cats is set for 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2, at the Buxton Public Works Garage, 215 Portland Road.

All dogs must be on a leash and cats in carriers. For faster service take along the previous rabies vaccination certificate.  Anyone from any community is welcome. The cost is $8 per vaccination.

The Hollis Animal Clinic, the towns of Buxton and Hollis, and the Vacationland Dog Club sponsor the clinic.

For more information, call Buxton Town Hall at 929-6171.

School makeup days

The MSAD 6 Board of Directors voted unanimously last week to change the district calendar to identify Dec. 22 and March 16 as student days.

The change, director Nathan Carlow said on Facebook, was recommended by  Superintendent Paul Penna “to lessen the impact of the several storm days the district had a few weeks ago.”
