In the article excerpted here, which appeared in the most recent “Selectmen’s Newsletter,” there was a typo in the “Example” cited. The last sentence in the “Example” should have read: “To achieve the same property tax of $1,302 now requires a mil rate of 19.95 mil.” (The published article erroneously read “19.55 mil.)
On Monday, Feb. 27, at 1:00 p.m., at the Lymes’ Senior Center, the center will offer a free training session in the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), which will be led by two local emergency medical technicians (EMTs), Colleen Atkinson and Doug LoPresti. The training session will explain how to recognize when someone is experiencing cardiac arrest and how to use this type of defibrillator. The EMTs will also demonstrate how to use hands-only CPR integrated with the use of an AED while waiting for an ambulance to arrive. The program is free and open to the public. To register for the free event, please call the senior center at 860-434-4127.
