We would like to thank Rylee Sawyer, Patty-Jo Thurlow and Collin Hughes for painting our new storage shed at the Town Hall. This was part of their community service requirement for graduation. If they continue to work as diligently as they did today, they are sure to succeed in their future endeavors.
Thank you for a job well done.
The best of luck to all three.
We had a second group of seniors help cleanup the swim area at Spec Pond. They were Richie Watson, Sean Ames, Wyatt Gough, and Declan Arseneault. They cleaned the beach and added some sand, spread gravel over the walkway leading to the beach to cover roots and fill in low areas.
Again, it was a job well done by our seniors at Sacopee Valley High School.
They all have plans for next year, and we wish them the best of luck.
Thank you all from the Town of Porter.
We also had one "SENIOR" helping. Can you identify him?

Tri-Town Waste Board
Representing Towns of Baldwin, Hiram & Porter
We would like to thank the citizens of Baldwin, Hiram, Porter, and of course our attendants at the transfer station for their help with our recycling efforts. As you can see from the letter (see below) we received from ecomaine, your efforts have paid off. We have not been charged tipping fees for excessive contamination.
“Another great month for your communities! Thank you for the super clean recycling and for everyone’s effort! It’s been almost a year since we began tracking contamination in the recycling loads and in that time only 2 of the loads from your towns exceeded 5% contamination and that was in the first month of our evaluating the loads. Since June of last year, the loads have consistently been between 0-1% contaminated. What an excellent trend for your communities!
We thank you very much for your exemplary work!”
Business Management Director
Please continue to help us maintain and improve our record of very low contamination. We can’t do it without your help.
