If you see Councilman Joe Martin and Judge Peter Frisbie around town, please give them a great big “Thank You.” Joe, who has retired after serving as town councilman since 1989, for 25 years you have made the community a priority. I hope you still stay involved, even in your retirement you are still needed. Peter, who has been involved in keeping Elizabethtown safe for the past 24 years, we wish you the best enjoyment in your retirement, please stay involved in the community.
