Town Council clerk Judith Pond Pfeffer realized she had a small problem during last night's meeting when it was her turn to read aloud from an official document.
She forgot her glasses, she admitted, holding the paper close to her face as she began to read. Quickly, councilman Carlo Geromini offered his specs, and Pfeffer slipped them on, mid-sentence. She scowled and took the borrowed glasses off again, not missing a beat in her reading.
From the other direction, Councilman Philip Evans sent his reading glasses to Pfeffer via councilmen Deborah Bartlettand chairman Chris Feeley. Still reading, Pfeffer donned the glasses, adjusted them, and gave Evans a thumbs-up. She wore them for the rest of the meeting.
