Well, we just had a busy afternoon at the Pantry. Of course,
we are always glad to be busy. I talked with June and she said
we could use Hamburger Helper (boy is that popular), Ramen noodles
and grape jelly. She also mentioned that we could use some
adult treats such as cookies and natural bars or anything you might
see that looks yummy.
The garden looks great that the Girl
Scouts are doing (100% better than mine for sure). School is out, so
snacks for the kids would be good also for picnics, etc.
Thanks again to all you folks who leave us
food around town. Much appreciated.
Until next time,
The White Mountains
The Epsom Public Library is pleased to
present “Twice-seen in the White Mountains,” an intriguing exhibit
of Richard Moore’s composite photographs of iconic locations in the
White Mountains, photographed a century apart and digitally merged.
The antique photographs on which the composites are based are from
19th century stereographs. The exhibit tells the story of the
once-great international stereograph industry, which had a major
center in Littleton, New Hampshire. An interactive feature of
the exhibit allows visitors to view a nineteenth-century stereograph
with a Virtual Reality viewer and a cell phone, bringing the past
into the present.
Richard W. Moore, a resident of Deerfield, has created “twice-seen
photographs” at Odiorne Point, the Wentworth Coolidge Mansion, the
White Mountains, and other New Hampshire historic sites. In
2014 he published Monhegan Come Again, twice-seen images of Monhegan
Island, Maine. Some of his work can be seen at
The exhibit will run from July 2 to August 13, and may be viewed
during regular library hours: Monday – Thursday, 10 am to 7 pm, and
Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm. Additionally, all are cordially
invited to attend the Opening Reception of this fascinating exhibit,
on Friday, July 8, from 5 to 7 pm. For more information, call
the library at 736-9920 or visit

Public Library Saturday June 18th on transplanting of flowers into
pots. Participants were: Kylee Adams-Gagne, Jenna Burnham, Sophia
Decker, Chris French, Jillian French, Alex Hanson, Thomas Hanson,

Epsom Board Of Selectmen Updates
Recently the Board had changed their
regular meetings to every other Monday, which then brought up
another discussion regarding the Town Office hours. The Board is
considering some options to change the hours to provide more hours
open to the public and to better utilize staff.
Tax deeding time is upon us and the Board is reviewing the list of
properties provided by the Tax Collector, Dawn Blackwell. The
list includes many properties whose owners have not paid property
taxes for over three years. The Board will review each one and make
their recommendations as to which of these properties will be taken
by the Town. It is the Board’s hope that these owners will
make payments by the deadline of July 11th to avoid this
In the last two months the Board has met
with the Town Office Staff and Department Heads for their
performance reviews. This is the first time in memory that
performance reviews are taking place for all employees and it has
proven to be a positive and productive process.
Some of the residents and our Town Road Agent addressed some
concerns about the maintenance in the Circle. The NHDOT has
been contacted again to determine what our volunteers can do in the
State owned property!
If it has not started by the time this article is out – the Route
202/4 paving and travel lane construction is on-going! We have
the constrcution plans from the State in the office if anyone is
interested in viewing them.
The unlicensed dog list was reviewed and
the Selectmen signed the request for the Town Clerk to issue the
warrant to collect the fees due to the Town.
The Planning and Zoning Boards have been
reviewing the application for a 55 & older development to be
constructed on Short Falls Road.
The Board will be meeting on Tuesday, July
5th – due to the July 4th Holiday on Monday.
All of the Town information, schedules, meeting notices & minutes
and list of Departments with monthly Police and Fire reports can be
found on our Web Site at www.epsomnh.org.
Mr. Crowley recently donated his family’s collection of old Town
Reports. It is interesting to compare the reports! Here is a
In the year 1944 – the Town had 177 shares of “Suncook Valley RR”
stock and the total asset for the year was $442.50. A
payment of $111.00 was given to the Bounties for 11 Hedgehogs!
The Library was improved by having the walls cleaned and tinted,
floors varnished and new rubber matting laid to preserve the floors
and “increase the quietness of people walking to the reading room
and book shelves”. Fire Chief, Clarence Bartlett
reported that 18 calls were made for the year and most serious fire
call was caused by lightning and fire gained headway so they needed
to call in 3 other Towns to assist.
Letter To The Editor -
In our form of government we get our
freedom from God.
Our forefathers set it up that way to
protect us against an intrusive government.
Our laws protect the same, as they are set
up depending on the morality of God-fearing people.
Enjoy your liberties and freedom and the
ever vigilant not to lose any more freedoms.
Brothers Sean and Danny Bonisteel of Epsom
set up a lemonade stand Friday on North Road.
