Stop by and enjoy the view

Renovations to the Glazier Cabin on the Granby Land Trust’s Dismal Brook Wildlife Preserve in North Granby have been completed with the addition of a metal roof. The cabin’s front porch is a great place to enjoy a quiet moment after a beautiful hike.

Budget challenges in a very untraditional year

While mid-January is traditionally the time when the Three Boards—Selectmen, Education and Finance—come together to collectively review budget projections for the next fiscal year of FY22, pandemic restrictions preclude the 18 members of these boards from physically meeting. Instead, the two operating boards have forwarded to the Board of Finance the look-aheads at next year—the Plus One budget forecast—as prepared by their respective administrators.


The Board of Selectmen called for a Public Hearing for public comment regarding the proposed sale of portions of town-owned land at 4 North Granby Road and 3 East Granby Road. Ward stated he received no comments, either written or oral, on the Public Hearing. No other public addressed the Public Hearing.

Be visible, be safe

An upside of the pandemic is that more of us are getting outside for some exercise. Roadside walkers, runners and bikers are far more common than a year ago.

Thanks for supporting Lions

On behalf of the Granby Lions Club, a huge THANK YOU to all who supported the Lions’ annual Christmas tree sale. It was one of the most successful ever, and all the money donated is put directly back into our community, notably college scholarships to graduating high school seniors.

Granby Living Calendar

The Granby Living Facebook group is a proud supporter of the Waste Not Want Not Community Kitchen and the Granby Food Bank. Both charities perform a vital role in our community and sadly this year has meant an increase in those that need help.

Government support needed

I was thrilled to learn cultured meat won regulatory approval in Singapore. This is a global first. For those who don’t know, cultured meat is grown from cells, without killing animals.

Just wondering…

I no longer live in Granby, but was a resident for 62 years, and now live at McLeans. I just read the op-ed from Susan Patricelli Regan and letter from Bill Regan in the December issue.
