The congregation of the Charlotte Valley Church has agreed to donate its church building in East Meredith to the Meredith Historical Society. Upon closing of the transaction, the building will become the permanent home of the Society, which has been meeting there at the Charlotte Valley Presbyterian Church in East Meredith as a guest for nearly a decade since its founding.
Until recently, the congregation maintained churches in Davenport, North Kortright and East Meredith, periodically rotating Sunday services between them. Because of shrinking membership, it was decided to consolidate into a single church in Davenport, which has the parsonage, and donate the North Kortright and East Meredith buildings to other organizations.
Owning the building will allow the Society to consolidate all of its activities under one roof, including maintenance of the historical collection.
In keeping with tradition, the Society will kick off its schedule of events for 2014 with a pie auction conducted by auctioneer Church McIntosh on Saturday, April 26. The event begins with a social at 3:30 p.m. during which guests can enjoy a free piece of pie and look over the pies to be sold, beginning at 4 p.m.

Town Board Approves Resolution Critical Of Draft Environmental Impact Statement For Constitution Pipeline
At its meeting on March 11, 2014, the Meredith Town Board approved by a vote of 5 to 0 a resolution critical of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Constitution Pipeline issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
The resolution in particular notes the failure of the DEIS to make provision for the potential damage to Meredith’s roads caused by heavy trucks and other equipment used in construction of the pipeline, which is scheduled to pass through the neighboring towns of Davenport and Franklin.
The resolution concluded, “the DEIS is incomplete and inadequate to allay the concerns of the Town of Meredith, and the FERC should revise it for reissue and then provide the public with ample time to comment.” See Town of Meredith Pipeline Resolution

The need has long been evident for an easily accessible source of information about Town government and the diverse resources in our community. We’re delighted to make this start at last.
You can find who’s who in Meredith government, what they do and are doing and how to contact them.
