Boston Park Sign Found: Around Halloween, one of the signs from the little Boston Triangle Park went missing. Boston village residents Mike Duff and Susan Black found it while hiking the Buckeye Trail and returned it to the township. Our thanks for making sure that it came home!

Food Drive: Once again boxes have been placed for collecting food for persons in need of a little assistance for the holidays. Boxes are place at Terry Lumber, Peninsula United Methodist Church, and the Peninsula Library. We are grateful to all who bring in food items. Please help us to make this program a great success by checking sell-by dates.

Zoning Positions Available: We are looking for one member for our Zoning Commission and one alternate to the same board. Zoning Commission members meet once a month to analyze the zoning ordinance for any updates or modifications, review changes in zoning laws that might impact the zoning ordinance, and provide guidance to the Board of Zoning Appeals regarding appeals to the zoning ordinance.
