**Petition for the Abolishment of Liability Insurance Requirement for Community Events**

We, the undersigned members of Townshend community, hereby submit this petition to express our collective voice in support of abolishing the current requirement for individuals to obtain liability insurance for community events and gatherings. We believe that this change is essential to promote inclusivity, community engagement, and the overall well-being of our town.

**Reasons for Abolishment:**

1. **Community Unity:** Our town's heart lies in the shared experiences of its residents. Requiring liability insurance creates an unnecessary barrier for community members who wish to organize and participate in events that foster unity and connection.

2. **Youth Engagement:** Events and activities aimed at our young people contribute significantly to their growth and development. The insurance requirement acts as a hindrance to organizing such activities, limiting opportunities for our youth to thrive.

3. **Fundraising for Community Needs:** Fundraisers play a crucial role in supporting local initiatives and addressing community needs. Removing the insurance requirement encourages more citizens to organize fundraising events, promoting a sense of shared responsibility and support for our town.

4. **Volunteer Participation:** Volunteers are the lifeblood of a vibrant community. The perception that volunteers create more work by necessitating insurance dissuades potential organizers and volunteers from contributing to community events, hindering the town's overall growth.

**Our Request:**

We respectfully request the Townshend Select board to reconsider and abolish the requirement for liability insurance for community events and gatherings within Townshend. By doing so, we believe we can create an environment that fosters community engagement, encourages youth participation, and supports local fundraising efforts without unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles.

We understand the importance of safety and responsibility in public spaces, and we are confident that alternative solutions can be explored to ensure the well-being of participants without imposing a financial burden.


In conclusion, we, the undersigned, affirm our commitment to the betterment of our community and believe that abolishing the liability insurance requirement is a step towards creating a more inclusive, vibrant, and engaged Townshend. We kindly request your prompt consideration of this petition and look forward to positive changes that will benefit our entire community.
