November is here!

November 8 is Election Day.

Voting will take place at the Sullivan Town Hall from 8 am to 7 pm on Nov. 8.  Sample ballots can be found on the town website, at the town hall, library and post office.  Remember to bring your photo ID!  If you are not registered, you may register at the polls – bring proof of residency, age and citizenship.

Absentee ballots are available from Town Clerk, Mary Hull. Stop by the Town Hall during regular office hours or call 847-3316.

The Town Clerk’s office will be closed on Election Day.

Please note this is not just a Presidential Election (Although that is important!). We are electing a new governor, a senator, local offices, all kinds of things. Just be very grateful that we are not California. Rumor has it their ballot has an average of 18 propositions and then all the folks running for office.

Friday Night is Movie Night

Yep, Friday, November 4, is Movie Night at the Library. This month we are featuring something a little different. An ensemble movie directed by Dustin Hoffman.

Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred are in a home for retired musicians. Every year, on October 10, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday and they take part. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva, but she refuses to sing. Still, the show must go on… and it does.

The ensemble features many excellent actors. Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly, Tom Courtney, Pauline Collins are just a few. It is rated PG-13 for brief strong language and suggestive humor and lasts 1 hour and 38 minutes.

Have to admit, I picked this one. Saw it many years ago and saw Dustin Hoffman interviewed about it. I was taken by the incredible cast as well as the wonderful story. No guns, no bombs, no cursing, a little old age humor, just a nice wonderful story.
