“Make Your Beagle Legal”!

 Note from the Town Clerk

You have no idea how much I will miss seeing my four-footed friends this year… they always bring me such great joy when they come “in-person” for a biscuit and their license.  Hopefully I will see you next year – Until then, stay safe, be kind, be well, and enjoy!
