UPDATE: We regret to announce that the Memorial Day Parade has been cancelled due to anticipated inclement weather. However, there will be an indoor ceremony in the lower level here at Town Hall at 11AM and we hope you will consider attending. Included in this ceremony will be the dedication of the room in past Veterans Agent and Chief Warrant Officer, Stewart “Soup” Campbell’s honor.
We would like to wish all residents a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend, and we hope to see you at Monday’s ceremony – Thank you.
Please join us for the dedication of the CWO Stewart T. “Soup” Campbell Room in the lower level of the Maynard Town Hall On Monday, May 29th 2017 immediately following the Memorial Day Parade.
Chief Warrant Officer, Stewart “Soup” Campbell, passed away on January 12th 2010, at the age of 92. In honor of his 30 years of U.S. Army service and many more years as the Town of Maynard’s Veterans Service Officer, lower-level meeting room/Hall of Honor is being proudly dedicated in his name.
Any veteran of any conflict is welcome to join us in the march. The parade will step off at 11:00am from the Mill & Main Sudbury Street lot, proceeding down Main Street to the first halt at the Main Street Bridge to remember those who lost their lives at sea. The parade will continue down Main Street, turning left onto Summer Street, stopping for the main ceremony halt at Memorial Park. We will then reform and progress down Nason Street and right onto Main Street to the parade’s conclusion in the rear parking lot behind the Town Hall. The dedication will immediately follow.
In case of inclement weather, a remembrance ceremony will be held in the lower level of Town Hall at 11:00am—the dedication will immediately follow.
The Town of Maynard will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the town on April 19, 2021. (Yes, there’s a word for that: Sesquicentennial!)
The planning process has already begun and the town is soliciting feedback from its residents. All interested are encouraged to provide their input to the planning via the following link:
All Maynard households will receive an annual town census form by mail in late December, 2016.
The census form will list all residents at your address; this includes children (children’s information is held as confidential). Please look it over and update if needed. Sign your census form and return it as soon as possible. The form must be returned even if there are no changes.
Three things you may not accomplish on your annual town census form:
- Register to vote
- Change your name
- Change your party affiliation
You must fill out the voter registration form in order to achieve any of these actions
Maintaining resident count is important. State and federal funding may be based on population count. If the town’s population count is low, certain funding may be lost.
At the bottom of the annual town census form you will find a 2017 dog license renewal/request form. Please complete this form if you are a dog owner and be sure to include the following:
- Dog(s) license fee: $10 for for neutered/spade, $15 for intact
- Please make checks payable to the Town of Maynard
- Current rabies vaccination form
Remember to license your dog(s) by February 28, 2017 or a late fee of $25 dollars will be applied.
Census forms and dog license renewal/request form and maybe mailed, dropped off at the Town Clerk’s Office or at the Maynard Public Library in the silver bins labeled “Annual Town Census”.
If you have any questions regarding the 2017 annual town census, please call the Town Clerk’s Office at 978-897-1300.
