The first order of business at the Deerfield December town meeting was to elect a Moderator to run the meeting. Mr. Joseph Barnard was voted in. In addition to settling details for the improvement of the meetinghouse, the voters dealt with school matters in Bloody Brook (South Deerfield), appointed the Selectmen to order the treasurer to pay the town's bills, and voted their approval for three members to provide the Reverend Mr. Ashley with his firewood for the year. Town meetings were regularly held four times each year with extra meetings called for emergencies.
