From the Mayor’s Desk

Dear Residents and Friends of TR,
a huge shout out to our TR Youth Association which put together one of the largest community-run festivals in years. Travelers Restival raised over 25k to be used for our local athletic group. For long-timers, it reminded us of the best parts of our old school Corn Festival!!
So grateful for our long, hot summer full of local festivals, community events, and quality time with our families. But I think we can all agree, that there’s nothing like Fall in TR. See below for some of the happenings going on in town and I look forward to seeing you out and about in TR!Brandy Amidon
