To the Editor:

We are grateful to the generosity of the many people and businesses who have donated money, office space, and their time to the town to help us recover from last year’s flood. Most recently we have been fortunate to receive several gifts of art for our town hall.

Lee Rich, Wilmington watercolor artist, planned to donate several of his large prints in August 2011. The flood intervened but Lee persevered. Now, with the artful framing by Carolyn Palmer of Roseate Creations, new prints adorn the upstairs meeting room.

Nancy O’Hara and Michael Levine stopped in with two oil paintings by Danville artist Curtis Hale that were in the collection of Michael’s parents, the late Gloria and Jerry Levine, of West Dover. Now both “Portland Street” and “Aqueduct” are in the front room of the town clerk’s office for everyone to enjoy.

Our new art works remind us of the beauty that surrounds us here and also of the many kindnesses shown by our friends.
