The Pittsfield High School Class Of 1966 50th Class Reunion  will be held in the Pittsfield Congregational Church vestry on July 23rd from 3-6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. If you can attend call Pete Riel at 603-269-8861.



In conjunction with the Chichester Public Library, the Epsom Public Library will host the Memory Café on Friday, July 8 at 2:00 p.m.. This is an informal, social gathering for anyone with memory issues and their caretakers. Open to anyone in the area, the Cafe offers a chance for socialization in a comfortable setting.


This month’s gathering will include a trip to the Epsom Public Library Historical Center, located in the former library building. Refreshments will be served.


The Epsom Public Library Historical Center is open on Wednesdays, from 6 – 8 p.m. The Trustees would appreciate volunteers for those hours. Please call the library, if you would be willing to help.



On Tuesday, July 12 at 1:30 PM the library will be showing the movie, “The Finest Hours The Impossible Rescue,” based on the true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history.  When a massive storm hits off the coast of Cape Cod, it rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, trapping more than 30 sailors in the rapidly sinking stern.  As the Coast Guard Captain and his crew set out in a 12-seat rescue boat, the oiler’s Chief Engineer struggles to buy his men more time.  Amazon says this film is “packed with heroic larger-than-life action, and driven by the men’s faith in their mission, themselves and one another.”



Epsom Town Band Concerts In The Park


The Epsom Town Band will present its summer series of concerts on three Friday evenings, July 8, July 15, and July 29, and on Old Home Day on Saturday, August 13.  Admission is free.

Big Trees Of New Hampshire


If you want to learn about the state’s biggest trees then be sure to go to the presentation at the Epsom Library on Wed July 6th at 7 PM. Kevin Martin will be showing and discussing these trees as described in his new book Big Trees of New Hampshire. You will hear how he got involved with finding the trees, how lumber from similar trees is used in his boatbuilding work, and how wildlife will use these impressive parts of our landscape. The discussion will cover trees on public land in all parts of the state and where they are located so you can go see them for yourself. City tours of Portsmouth, Nashua and Concord are also described. Books will be available after the presentation for those interested.

Letter To The Editor


The summer has been very dry and warm and moving right along.


As you know, the North Road reconstruction and paving project is scheduled to start on 25 July, which brings with it road closures and huge delays for about two weeks.


It would be appreciated if you plan on being either in or out between 07:30 and 16:30 hours on Monday through Friday, if you live in between Route 4 and Ox Lane. 


On Wednesday, weather permitting, we are planning on shimming from Ox Lane to Pittsfield, so on that day, please plan on being  gone or in from 07:30 to 16:30.


From Ox Lane to Pittsfield Town Line on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and you should be able to get out through Pittsfield.


I understand the inconvenience and do appreciate some of the logistics and planning you may have to do.


Thank You & Bless You,

Gordon Ellis
