The face of the clock in Brewster Hall is in desperate need of repair, especially the sunny south side. An estimate of around $32,000 was received and a grant for $10,000 was secured. According to the Town Manager, the Friends of Brewster Hall have agreed to finance the balance of $22,000.
Regardless of the resolution of the town office situation, it makes sense not to allow the clock face to deteriorate to the point where it must be replaced rather than repaired. For the Friends, it should be a relatively easy lift to get donations for the clock, and maybe a way to see what kind of potential their membership has to take a bite out of the millions that will remain to be done.
