Two Community Service Events

Barnstead Girl Scouts.jpg

Barnstead Brownie Troop 20887 here with the ladies from Pet Tails Rescue (far left Judy Zarlenga and far right Sandra Hassett) and with the girls is “Cotton” who was rescues by Pet Tails and now has his forever home with Judy.


Barnstead Brownie troop 20887 is looking for the help from the community on their newest journey.  The girls have teamed up with Pet Tails Rescue, a non-profit organization in the community of Northwood.  Pet Tails Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and placement of dogs and cats from overcrowded, high-kill shelters in the south and transports them to NH to find their “forever” homes.


The Brownie Troop invited them to their meeting in February to learn about what they do and helped them out by writing thank you letters to the local people who have rescued an animal.  The Brownies are currently collecting donations for Pet Tails and we are asking for the support of the community to assist.  Pet Tails is in need of the following items: dry dog and cat food, washable blankets and cotton towels, paper towels, pet wipes, Clorox wipes and copy paper.  


If you would like to make a donation, boxes have been left at Barnstead Elementary School, Prospect Mountain High School, Hannaford’s of Alton and Maxfields Hardware in Pittsfield.  All donations are appreciated to help out this wonderful organization. You can visit Pet Tails Rescue on Facebook or at


Also, the Brownie Troop is planning on being part of the Greeters at Pease AFB soon. They will be there to welcome home soldiers who have been away in combat.  We will be greeting them with big smiles and Girl Scout Cookies.  We are asking for your help to make our goal of 100 donated boxes to be delivered on the day of our greet. Donation boxes can be purchased and we will deliver them on our scheduled day.  To purchase donation boxes please visit us at our upcoming cookie sale on March 23 at Barnstead Elementary School between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm.


Again, the Brownies thank you for all of your support.



New Art Display At The Barnstead Library


The Oscar Foss Memorial Library in Center Barnstead is very pleased to have a wonderful display of photography by Barbara Sinclair-Pappas.  Several of Barbara’s amazing nature photos are here through the month of April and can be viewed during regular library hours.


Ms. Sinclair-Pappas is a self-taught nature photographer, augmenting her early knowledge through local workshops. During her career as an early-childhood educator, she first used a digital camera to record the spontaneous experiences of her young students.  Once retired, she took camera in hand and focused the lens of the yard and gardens surrounding her home in Chichester.  Ms. Sinclair-Pappas has a book of photography titled “In a Chichester Backyard.”


A quote from Ms. Sinclair-Pappas states… “I am amazed at the wealth of wildlife I continually discover so close to home!  I especially enjoy the intimate nature of macro-photography and the fascinating faces of nature it brings into focus.”


The Library is very honored to have this beautiful “gallery” for you to view.  Drop by and get the “spring feeling” with just a glance at these lovely photos.
