Celebrate Winterferst Chelmsford February 1-3, 2013

   Tuesday, January 29th, 2013 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Chelmsford WinterfestThe recent snowfall hopefully has gotten everyone in the mood for Winterfest Chelmsford 2013!

This year's Winterfest kicks off on Friday, February 1st, at 7:00 p.m. with the WinterFest Community Social at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts (after snowshoeing at Russell Mill 5:30-7:30 p.m., of course!):

We're All Townies Now! This year the popular community social that kicks off Chelmsford's WinterFest weekend will be held at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts. The cabaret on the CCA's lower level will be transformed into a townie's dream as we attempt to recreate Skip's Restaurant (use your imagination!). Test your Chelmsford knowledge by participating in Chelmsford Trivia matches throughout the evening. Dancing to the music of the Breaktime Band!

Local restaurants and bakeries will provide their best comfort foods. And as in past years, Harrington's Wines & Liquors will make it possible for us to sell beer and wine. Purchase tickets at the CCA and at the main Library ($15 per person).

We'll also be kicking off the annual One Book Chelmsford so as in past years, you can pick up a copy of the 2013 One Book read, Townie by Andre Dubus III at the end of the WinterFest Social. Check the Library's website for more details on the One Book program www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/onebook

A complete listing of events and locations is available at http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/winterfest. There will be lots of great food, fun, and people throughout the town for the entire weekend of Winterfest, so be sure to go out and have a wonderful time.

Please Complete And Return Your Town Census

   Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Seal of the Town of ChelmsfordChelmsford residents should receive the 2013 Annual Town Census by Wednesday, January 2013. Town Clerk Onorina Maloney is reminding everyone that is it important to fill out and return the census, because it keeps vital Town records up-to-date, as well as saves the Town money in maintaining these records.

The Census will also include a dog license application, and all dogs must be licensed by February 28th to avoid fines.

If you do not receive a census or have any questions, please contact the Office of the Town Clerk at 978-250-5205.

More information on the benefits of completing the census is available from the Chelmsford Independent.

Intern Opportunities at the Town Clerks Office

   Tuesday, December 11th, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Seal of the Town of ChelmsfordThe Chelmsford Town Clerk's Office has announced an internship program - details and application information are below.

In an effort to assist the Chelmsford Town Clerk’s Office with its many ongoing tasks, we are seeking to recruit bright, hardworking individuals with an interest in working in an busy, fast-paced office that handles functions from licensing dogs to maintaining birth, marriage and death records to registering voters and running elections. We are providing opportunities to high school students, undergraduates and graduate students, law school students, and other individuals who are seeking experience with the Town of Chelmsford. As part of Chelmsford’s diversity effort and equal opportunity policies, we seek to accommodate internships for women and men from different racial, cultural, economic and ethnic backgrounds regardless of their sexual orientation or disability status.

Internship Program Overview
As part of Chelmsford’s talented and professional team, Clerk’s Office interns are provided with education, training, hands-on experience, supervision, and networking opportunities. Internship positions are unpaid, but do provide excellent experience for students who are interested in government, elections, research, vital statistics and a wide variety of other areas. While some of the work will be basic filing and organizing, we will also be looking to interns for their ideas and suggestions as we tackle new issues and seek to improve our processes and services. We are seeking highly motivated selfstarters, but interns will be supervised and help will always be available to them.

Time Commitment
We are seeking interns who are available for at least 4 hours per week starting in January 2013. While internship opportunities will be available in the summer months and in the following academic year, the need will be greatest from January through the spring of 2013 to assist with the Town Census, Town Election and other events that will occur in that timeframe. We are flexible regarding the hours to be worked, but we strongly prefer interns be available for shifts of at least two hours during the Clerk’s Office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Applicants for internships must be responsible, organized, detail oriented and motivated. We are an office that serves the public, so a positive attitude and neat attire are required.

Interested individuals may submit a resume and cover letter to the Clerk’s Office, 50 Billerica Road, Chelmsford MA 01824. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, but first consideration will be given to those received in early January from those available to start right away. Contact Jennifer Almeida at JAlmeida@townofchelmsford.us or call 978-250-5205 with any questions or to submit applications.
