Mayor William J. Chegwidden
Fall is always a busy time of year and this year is no different in Wharton.
School is starting up again and I’d like to bring your attention to the new traffic pattern by the school during school hours. Keeping everyone safe is a priority and these changes were made by the Police Department in order to do so. You can see more about the changes here.
Our annual Job Fair is coming up on September 20th from 6-8 p.m. at the American Legion Post 91 located at 99 N. Main St. Wharton. There will be approximately 30 companies in attendance looking for new employees.
This year’s 5K Color Run theme is Breakthrough and it will be taking place on September 30th. For more information and to register click here.
This October we will be doing another online food drive to benefit both of the food pantries in town. Look out for more information about this to come and please donate if you are able.
A reminder that the last day to register to vote in the General Election is Tuesday, October 16th. You can get forms at Town Hall or online here. The General Election is on Tuesday, November 6th.
Get your costumes ready, because HalloWharton is on October 27th for Wharton residents only. There is also Safe Trick or Treating at the Fire House on October 31st.
I’m continuing to mail out my monthly newsletter to all residents in Wharton. You can also access it online here or sign up to receive an emailed copy. If you are not regularly getting a copy in the mail, please call Town Hall.
A reminder that yard waste bags are now found at the Recycling Center. For their hours click here.
