Gilmanton NH News

Mark your calendar! On March 28th at 7:00 pm at the Year-Round Library, the GYRL Board of Directors is holding an organizational meeting to brainstorm fund raising ideas for the continued operation of the library beyond Nov. 1st.  Please plan on attending this important meeting to offer ideas and time to this effort.



Letter To The Editor


My purpose in writing today is to publicly congratulate Don Guarino on his re-election to the Board of Selectman in the Town of Gilmanton.  I sincerely wish him and the rest of the Board well in the term ahead.  


I also want to recognize the many residents who cast a ballot for me.  Thank you so much for your vote.  While I am very disappointed, of course, to have not been elected to serve as Selectman, it has not diminished my core reason for running – I love Gilmanton.


My service to the Town as an active resident will continue and I look forward to attending meetings, advocating for positions, issues, and people in which I believe at public sessions, and doing all I can to support the Selectmen.


These are important times for our community.  The challenge of maintaining the quality of our Town, its services and its assets under SB2 and an economic recovery, which is yet to fully materialize here, will truly test our leaders’ management skills. With so many critical matters to work through, I encourage each and every one of us to be involved. The Board’s work can only be enhanced with our engaged citizenship.


Again, my congratulations to Don and my warmest thanks to those who exercised their right to vote and expressed faith in my abilities.

It is time for Gilmanton to establish a library plan. There are three libraries in Gilmanton (plus the school library). It appears that this creates duplication in book supply, facilities and human assets. I sense that there has been some competition among the libraries to be “Gilmanton’s Library.” Much more could be accomplished if all of the libraries cooperated to develop a plan that would meld physical and human assets to develop a Gilmanton library (system).


I don’t think that it is realistic to expect that a growing town like Gilmanton can have adequate library service without taxpayer support.


It is time for the “battle of the libraries” to end, and for all of the libraries to work together to make a plan that will supply Gilmanton with good and efficient library service through combining of assets and cooperation.


I ask the Selectmen to be involved to decide what taxpayer support they would recommend. (I am not associated with any of the Gilmanton libraries).


Philip A. Ray, D.V.M.



New Church In Town


Great news everyone! There is a new church in the town of Gilmanton. The pastor, Nate Pickowicz  grew up in Gilmanton IW where he now lives with his wife Jessica and son Jack. They have answered God’s calling in starting this church, which is appropriately named Harvest Bible Church. It is an evangelical church and their mission is to reach the lost, strengthen the weak, and encourage the faithful unto godliness through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 


In Luke chapter 10 verse 2 Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Pastor Nate preaches from the word of God and he has a deep desire to share the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. 


The church meets at the Gilmanton Town Offices, 2nd floor, 503 Province Road. Services start at 9 am and childcare is available for children 5 and under. If you would like to know more about the church before you attend a service you can visit  


Sunday, March 31 is Easter Sunday and there is no better time than now to come and worship with us.
