With the winter months upon us, an uncertain economy and a continuing fluctuation in fuel prices, the Town of Lyme’s Social Services Director is anticipating higher-than-normal requests this year for energy-assistance support from local families in need.  Lyme residents can help their neighbors by making a charitable contribution to this fund by sending a check – made out to “Emergency Assistance Fund” – to Attention: Social Services, Lyme Town Hall, 480 Hamburg Road, Lyme, CT 06371.  All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.  (The emergency fund is for Lyme residents only.)
