Shrewsbury – The July 12 Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen’s meeting opened with a moment of silence for the 12 police officers shot in Dallas, Texas.

A special common victualler license was unanimously approved for the Spirit of Shrewsbury 20th anniversary Fall Festival Sept. 23, as was a one-day all-alcoholic beverage license. St. Mary’s Orthodox Church was granted a one-day all-alcoholic beverage license for a church baptism July 16.
