Resident Shredding Day is June 3: Petition Starting for Name Change


It appears, Weston, that humorlessness is starting to win over humorfullness (? well, why not?) here in town. In spite of repeated attempts to revert to the originally and hilariously named “Resident Shredding Day”, Town Hall is refusing to bow to popular demand and has renamed it “Document Shredding Day for Residents.” One would almost think that someone ACTUALLY showed up with residents to be shredded. I am innocent.

Remember, folks, crabbiness and seriousness do not bring on laughter, only silliness can. I think that’s what MLK, Jr said. Oh wait, maybe that was darkness and light, I can’t remember. And therefore, the Owl will shortly start a Citizen’s Petition for a permanent name change which sadly will be ready only for the fall special town meeting. Watch your inboxes.

Fine, here’s the story:

RESIDENT SHREDDING DAY will be held this Saturday, June 3 from 9 am to 1 pm at the Weston Police Station. As always, no non-residents may be shredded–they goop up the apparatus.

This event is for those who have a great deal of household shredding to be done (things do tend to pile up). Community shredding is the way to go–shred as many as you want–it’s the same price: free.

Residents can shred by bringing their victims to the Police Station at 180 Boston Post Road By-Pass on Saturday. After that, you will need to wait for the next shredding day or use your home shredder. This gets messy.
