On June 13, the Pro-Life Society requested that two of their flags be flown on the flag polls that sit on the corner of Main Street and Second Avenue to promote life affirming messages and/or paint their flag on the crosswalk adjacent to the rainbow crosswalk.

The society pointed to the fact that if there is a rainbow crosswalk, there could also be a Pro-Life one.

However, at the June 27 meeting, town council decided not to allow either of the society’s requests.
