Sterling eNews provides current information about local events and meetings in the Sterling area.
If we receive notices about events between print issues, we will send those notices by e-mail to subscribers of Sterling eNews. Subscribers also receive reminders about local weekend events, a weekly listing of upcoming meetings of town boards, results of elections and town meetings, and obituaries. If there’s an urgent event in town, such as a boil water order, we’ll send a notice as soon as we are aware of it. (However, we can’t guarantee we will be able to send timely e-mails when there is a power outage, since we might also be affected.)
