Why Volunteer To Adopt A Section Of Road In Epsom?

Submitted By The Epsom Conservation Commission


As winter’s snow banks recede and spring greenery appears, and before blackflies fly, the Epsom Conservation Commission appeals to you to adopt a section of road to clean-up any roadside trash. This endeavor has built-in rewards for you and for your neighbors who may be unable to volunteer. Since Earth Day 1990 the Commission has encouraged folks to volunteer their time to clean up some area or section of road or trail that is meaningful to them. 


Over the years we have received lots of feedback, often about how shocked volunteers were at the amount of trash they collected. Some who take on this task year-round have reported that they notice less trash than they originally found. Some have shared their discouragement when they notice the area littered again. Others pointed out that as the traffic increases in their neighborhood, so does the litter. 


One elderly citizen called me to ask who she could thank for cleaning the litter on her road. Many school children have been encouraged to volunteer with cleaning up litter, if safely supervised. Some have said it’s a lesson about the number of people who drink, drive and litter. One neighborhood made it into an event—and participants celebrated afterwards with a potluck supper. Many have spoken of the increase of fast food container litter over the years—the fast food places have donated supplies and worked hard to maintain their own areas. 


It takes the community working together. We have many miles of road. The commission thanks all those who get out there every year and do their part. So won’t you help? Adopt a section of road that is meaningful to you. Do it in honor of spring, the natural beauty of Epsom, Earth Day, April 22nd and the joy of seeing clean roadsides, trails and areas. Pick a time that works for you, your family or friends. 


Send your clean-up info to [email protected], or to the Town of Epsom Conservation Commission, PO Box 10, Epsom, 03234. Roadside trash can be brought to BCEP, our Recycling Center dirty and at no cost from April 19th through the 28th. Thank you.



Great “Mac & Cheese” Cook Off News

Well, the spring “Mac & Cheese” Cook-off is over. It was a great fun-filled evening for all who attended. We had 21 different versions of this traditional comfort food for sampling. Everyone had ample opportunity to sample all 21 and they did. No one went home hungry. Salad, brownies and ice cream were served as well. 


A big thank you to all who attended to support the Epsom Fire Auxiliary and the Epsom-Chichester Lions Club. The Auxiliary has added to their fire equipment fund and the Lions to their community projects to provide eyeglasses and hearing aids to the needy and awarding scholarship for local youth.


The winner of the best “Mac & Cheese” was Elaine Palermo of the Epsom Fire Auxiliary with her wonderful “Buffalo Mac & Cheese.”  We had close seconds from the Epsom-Chichester Lions Club but, Elaine’s was the very best. 



Epsom Library News


On Wednesday, April 24, at 7:00 pm, the Epsom Public Library, as part of the Adult Programming, will host an evening with author, nature photographer, and weather observer Eric Pinder.  Eric will share stories from the Mount Washington Observatory, the icy outpost where he lived and worked for seven years.


Winds blowing stronger than 100 mph, bear and moose sightings, and lots of ice were just part of daily life for this adventurous young man. His experiences on the foggy, windswept summit inspired several books, including his first children’s book, Cat in the Clouds.  He will have a selection of his books with him and will be happy to sign copies after his discussion.


Refreshments will be served.





Thank you to all who came out to support our Macaroni dinner cook-off on Saturday, April 6th at the Epsom Fire Station.


Also, thanks to all who cooked their hearts out for us and the Epsom-Chichester Lions Club.


Congratulations to Elaine Palermo of Epsom for bringing home the vote for the Epsom Fire Dept. Aux. You appropriately turned the heat up with your “Buffalo Mac & Cheese” dish, it was a big hit.


This function was a great time for all and we hope to do it again with the Epsom-Chichester Lions Club in the fall.

Town Of Epsom Special Selectmen’s Meeting


The Epsom Board of Selectmen will be holding a special Selectmen’s meeting on Monday, April 22nd to consider the possible purchase of the former Pathfinder Academy property for use as a Town office facility. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. at the Pathfinder Academy site on Sawyer Avenue (directly across from the police station). 


A tour of all the buildings will be provided and after the tour the meeting will move to the Town Offices Meeting Room at 940 Suncook Valley Highway for discussion and public input. If more than 60 people attend, the Board will announce it necessary to re-locate to the Fire Station Meeting Room (Upper Level) at 1714 Dover Road. 


Should the Board of Selectmen decide that it is in the best interest of the Town to go forward with the possible purchase, a special Town Meeting will be scheduled where Epsom voters will decide whether or not to purchase the property. The BOS welcomes any and all input on this matter and encourages Epsom residents to attend the tour and meeting on Monday April 22.





State Representative Carol McGuire, stated in her constituents report SVS April 10, 2013 “...the House passed our version of the budget...(by) downshifting costs to the counties...” This part of her statement might lead one to believe that when we receive our 2013 property tax bills, including an approximate 6% increase, it’s the fault of Democrats now controlling the Legislature. Not so.


This 6% property tax increase is the result of the 2010-11 Republican Legislature, including so-called Free Staters, which downshifted previous State obligations to local governments. The Democratic budget has not been signed into law thus not yet implemented.
