Ice Cream Social


Take time out of your busy summer schedule to relax and enjoy an ice cream sundae at the Bow Lake Grange Hall, 569 Province Road Strafford, NH, on Wednesday, July 6, from 4 to 8 pm.  The Strafford Women’s Club will be holding their July Annual Ice Cream Social.  What is more fun and delicious than constructing your own ice cream sundae from a choice of vanilla, chocolate, or coffee ice cream?  Pour on caramel or hot fudge sauce, pile on your choices of toppings from a variety of fruits, nuts, jimmies and other candies.  Top with a mound of whipped cream and finish off with a bright red cherry.


Then sit down at a table with your friends and family or make new acquaintances as you savor the blend of flavors and the good company.  Tickets will be sold at the door—small sundaes are $2.50; large, $3.50.  Add a homemade brownie for fifty cents or take one home for later.


While you enjoy your sundae, don’t forget to buy tickets for the Pick-a-Prize Raffle, in which you choose the prizes you wish to win.  Drawing will be held at the close of the second ice cream social on August 3, 2016.


All profits from the ice cream socials go to fund two college scholarships for Strafford residents, an eight grade student award, and other worthwhile community projects.    The Strafford Women’s Club appreciates your support of fundraisers throughout the year. Phone 664-2615 for information.

Fred Newton Scott Goodrich

Fred Newton Scott Goodrich, 83, of Barnstead, NH, passed away on June 13, 2016 at his home in Alton Bay, NH.


Fred was born in Providence, RI on February 16, 1933. He was the fourth child and second son of Robert M. and Marion Scott Goodrich. He was a graduate of Moses Brown School and went on to the University of Rhode Island for his BSEE and Pepperdine University for his MBA.


He is survived by his wife, Sylvia; his children: son, Scott Goodrich of Hancock, NH and daughters Jeannette Mahlen and Keri Tate of Seattle, WA; five grandchildren and four great grandchildren as well as many extended family members; his sister, Grace Goodrich Ward of Cincinnati, OH, also survives him.  His siblings, Robert M. Goodrich Jr. of Rochester, NY and Marilyn Goodrich Guenther of Syosset, NY preceded him in death.


Fred enjoyed traveling with his wife Sylvia and cherished his time with their families. He was an active outdoorsman and continued to alpine ski, golf, and sail up until his death. He was an avid New England sports fan and nearly always had some sporting event on TV. He was a member of the British Car Club and enjoyed numerous hobbies including restoring cars (especially his MG’s), woodworking, rowing, and tinkering with any mechanical or electrical device that needed attention. Fred was also a pilot and had a plane in his younger years. He proudly served in the US Army in Germany post WWII.  Fred was an integral member of the team that designed and installed the radar systems on the USS Enterprise.


Fred was an engineer at his core. He worked for Hughes Aircraft for many years and later RCA and MITRE Corp. He was also a successful businessman and co-founded Cellular Specialties, Inc. with his son Scott. He was very proud that the company grew to employ nearly 200 people. The ideals and contributions he made touched the lives of many and he will be remembered for his kindness, earnestness and his dry sense of humor.


If you would like to make any donations in Fred’s memory please send to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) at 175 Ammon Dr., Suite 201, Manchester, NH 03103 – Ph. 603-222-2300 A private memorial will be held at the convenience of the family.
