Single tax rate for commercial and residential

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

At the recommendation of the Board of Assessors, the Hanover Select Board
voted last Friday to adopt a single tax rate of $13.51 per thousand for
commercial and residential property. If you would like to figure out what
your approximate property tax bill will be in the coming year, the
preliminary real estate assessments may be found here:
http://atotw.com/maillist/lt.php?tid=uQdfbaZbwSSolpYj+HKdwp/OCUfKeLLTrdZvySapK2JoqLt7nDMYRqoN783ZLADJ
.

Tax bills always seem to come concurrently with Santa; hopefully this early
news will soften the holiday mail a bit. :) Please stay tuned to ATOTW
for more information about tax deferral programs, senior tax work-off
programs, etc.!

Depression and Suicide Awareness and Prevention Workshop

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

I know this program is occurring in Norwell, but sometime ATOTW rules are
meant to be broken. Someone reading this, or someone you know, may need
this program during this holiday season. Please share this information and
make a plan to cross town lines if you’d like.

Depression and Suicide
Awareness and Prevention Workshop

December 11th at 2:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall at
First Parish of Norwell Unitarian Universalist
24 River Street, Norwell

Do you know how to recognize suicide’s warning signs and risk factors?
How would you talk with a friend if you worried they were depressed or
suicidal?

Everyone should have answers for those questions, and that’s why everyone
is invited to this FREE informational workshop provided by the Samaritans
and First Parish of Norwell. The topics are relevant to teens, parents,
seniors, and everyone in between. Bring your teen, bring your parent, or
bring a friend – learn this vital information together. Refreshments
provided!

You will leave the workshop with the skills and knowledge to better
understand the specific challenges facing a variety of groups, and how to
best help someone who may be struggling. During the workshop, you will
learn how to:
• Learn how to ask directly about suicidal intent and how to best support
those in crisis
• Recognize warning signs and risk factors of suicide
• Find resources to help yourself or a loved one
• Manage stress and develop effective coping skills through discussion,
safety planning, and self-care

Community connectedness has a role to play in reducing the stigma
associated with suicide and mental illness – a stigma which inhibits
people from discussing their feelings and challenges. Break the silence and
initiate conversation at this workshop on suicide prevention, mental health
and wellness, presented by Samaritans’ Community Education and Outreach
team.

The mission of Samaritans is to reduce the incidence of suicide by
alleviating despair, isolation, distress and suicidal feelings among
individuals in the community, 24 hours a day; to educate the public about
suicide prevention; to help those who have lost a loved one to suicide; and
to reduce the stigma associated with suicide.

Contact community@firstparishnorwell.org with questions.
