A productive meeting in Pembroke

On behalf of the Pembroke School Board, we want to express our appreciation to the hundreds of citizens who attended the school meeting on Saturday in the PA gym. The level of involvement and the quality of debate over the six-hour session was at the highest level, and the community has benefited from the active experience. There was a positive display of respect for the many opinions expressed.

In the end, the school board is grateful for the support of its budget proposal. The last few months of turmoil resulted in significantly more involvement by many voters, and that is a positive trend. The more people involved the better for all of us. Thanks again to all for attending, speaking, listening carefully and taking the time to vote on the issues.
