My Angel Avery

Happy 10th Birthday

Barnstead Michaud.jpg

It’s hard to believe that you would be 10 years old. My goodness, I remember when you’d stand in front of me to see how big you were. We still have the marks on the wall where we measured you.


We still haven’t moved your things. I think they bring a small bit of comfort. Daddy tries so hard to keep busy because he misses you so much. All he wants is his little man.


On your birthday, March 16, we went to the cross and remembered the short time you were here and how much joy you gave us.


Avery, you’re always in our hearts.

Barnstead Master Plan 2013 Public Opinion Survey


Barnstead’s Master Plan Committee in conjunction with the Survey Center of the University of New Hampshire is asking the public to fill out a Public Opinion Survey that will help determine the town’s needs for the next ten years.  The information collected from this survey will be used to determine what’s important to the residents of Barnstead. It only takes about 10 minutes to complete, and covers a broad range of topics, including land use, development, government services, taxation and expenditures.  The opinions, preferences and information gathered from the survey will help in recommending policies and priorities for the future of Barnstead. The surveys will be mailed to town residents beginning March 4.  Please return your completed survey in the self-addressed postage paid envelope as soon as possible. The results will be published in later this year, followed by a discussion at a public meeting.


If you are interested in becoming part of the Master Plan Committee feel free to attend a meeting on a one-time basis, or consider becoming a member. We welcome your ideas, comments and participation.  The Master Plan Committee meets every second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Barnstead Parade Fire Station. For more information, contact the Master Plan committee leader, David Brown, email [email protected] phone 603-659-3137.


More about the Master Plan is available online at under Town Business.



Nighthawk Seniors News

Submitted By Beverly A. Goodrich, Secretary


The Nighthawk Seniors of Barnstead met at the Barnstead Town Hall on March 6, 2013 at 12 noon and enjoyed a delicious corned beef dinner prepared by members Deb Fedorchak and Pat Duffy. There were 19 members, one guest and her little dog present. During the meal we enjoyed a wonderful piano concert presented by Pastor John Fogell from Alton. He played oldies, hymns, patriotic, and St. Patrick’s Day songs. He is a very accomplished pianist and his music was loved by all.


The 50/50 raffle was won by Pat Chioccola. At the business meeting, Jerry Conti was chosen to be our Vice President.


Our next meeting will be held at the Town Hall on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 12 noon and will be a pot luck lunch. The program will be a Silent Auction, and all are asked to bring good items for the auction.


We are welcoming  both men and women to join our club. Dues are very affordable at $4.00 a year. Come join us, you’ll be glad you did!


For more information, please call President Christine Sanborn at 875-2676.
