 upcoming events

Our Democratic Town Caucus will be Wednesday, June 9, 2021, at 6pm in the pavilion across from the Clark Mills Firehouse (7700 Main St or County Rd 19). The caucus will be followed by our next regular committee meeting, in the same place. Please bring a mask.


We mourn the loss of Town Councilman Mike O'Neil. If you would like to help his family, a fund has been set up for his daughter: GoFundMe O'Neil Scholarship Fund.
