Westford League Awarded State LWV Grant

The League applied for and received a Lotte E. Scharfman Citizen Education Grant from LWV of Massachusetts. The League will use the $300 grant to help pay for a the printing of new edition of our “A Guide to Town Meeting” booklet. First produced in 1999, the Guide describes the entire process of Town Meeting in Westford, with sections on the warrant, participants, articles and motions, the debate, voting, a glossary and the indispensable Parliamentary Motions Guide. By clearly explaining how Town Meeting works, it encourages and empowers citizens to be active participants in Westford’s open Town Meeting. The Guide is free; copies are available at all Town Meetings, at the Town Clerk’s office and at League events. You can also read it online. Our thanks to the LWVMA Citizen Education Fund for this generous grant!
