Else Cilley Chapter, 

NSDAR July Meeting

Northwood Else Cilley.jpg

At the July meeting of the Else Cilley Chapter, NSDAR, speaker and Nevers’ Band member, Deborah Lincoln of Danville, New Hampshire, presented the program, “Historical Gigs of the Nevers’ 2nd Regiment Band.” Mrs. Lincoln shares one of her photos with member, Peg Franz of Rochester, and Norma Perkins of Nottingham in the background during the presentation.


The July meeting of the Else Cilley Chapter, NSDAR was held in the Nottingham Square Schoolhouse in the midst of a New Hampshire heat wave. With fans humming, members and guests enjoyed an indoor “picnic” lunch with cool beverages, chips, fresh fruit and angel food cake.


Following lunch and the opening ritual, speaker and Nevers’ Band member, Deborah Lincoln of Danville, New Hampshire, presented the program, “Historical Gigs of the Nevers’ 2nd Regiment Band.” Mrs. Lincoln shared several historical events taking place in New Hampshire at which band members were fortunate enough to be in attendance, with a “bird’s eye view.” The 100+ year old band performed at such events as the dedication of the battleship USS Alabama and the 1905 signing of the Russo-Japanese Pease Treaty, both taking place in Portsmouth, NH. They played at the dedication of Tram II at Cannon Mt. and at Christa McAuliffe Day in August 1985 on the State House Plaza. Photos of these and other historic events were passed during the presentation.


During the business portion of the meeting, Vice Regent Jan Gilman read the President General’s Message from the July/August Supplement to the American Spirit magazine, chairperson Peg Franz gave a National Defense message, minutes and correspondence were read, and the treasurer’s and chaplain’s reports were given.


American History, American Indian, Conservation, Constitution and Flag spot announcements were read and Campbell Labels and Box Tops for Education for DAR sponsored schools were collected. Current and future repairs to the historic Nottingham Square Schoolhouse, which the chapter maintains, were discussed.


The Else Cilley Chapter of the DAR works with the State and National Societies to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. The chapter’s next meeting will be held at the Nottingham Square Schoolhouse, Ledge Farm Road, Nottingham, NH on August 22nd beginning at 1:30 pm. The program is “Patriots in Petticoats” presented by quilter Barbara Corson and members of the community are welcome to attend.

Northwood Drive-In Movie Night


The Northwood Advent Christian Church is hosting another in its series of summer community events with a Drive-Inn Movie Night Saturday, August 17, 113 School St. This event is free and is open to everyone. It will start at 7:45 pm with cartoons and comedy and the main feature will start around 8:15 darkness permitting. The feature film will be “The Blind Side,” a great flick for these summer days!


This film is based on a true story. Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) knows little about family. Less about football. What the homeless teen knows are the streets and projects of Memphis. Well-to-do Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) knows little about his world. Yet when she and Michael meet, he’s found a home. And the Tuohys have found something just as life-changing: a beloved new son and brother. This real-life story of family and of Michael’s growth into a blue-chip football star will have you cheering with its mix of gridiron action and heartwarming emotion. Share the remarkable journey of the college All-American and first-round NFL draft pick who was a winner before he ever stepped onto the playing field. Rated PG-13. Approx. 129 minutes.


Free popcorn, refreshments and drinks will be provided. You can watch from your car or bring a blanket, or lawn chairs to watch from the lawn (don’t forget bug spray). If weather is bad all will be held indoors starting at 7:45 pm August 17.



Letter To The Editor


For the first time in awhile, I have a few minutes to respond to something other than School Board issues. Two letters caught my eye and I want to respond to them.


The first one argues that “corporations are not people.” That is an extreme liberal talking point that is saying therefore a corporation should not be able to influence elections with their money. Of course that same person would argue to infinity that it is alright for unions and Planned Parenthood to spend their members money on elections. Both are, in my opinion, made up of a bunch of people. If “corporations are not people” then neither are unions and other such groups.


The other letter extolled the virtues of government. I cannot think of one thing that our government does adequately, let alone well. The Post Office needs hundreds of millions of dollars in bailout money quarterly and should be disbanded. We have so abused Social Security by using the money collected to curry favors from those who should have no right to it that we now expect our children to pay for our retirement. Sick! Since the Federal Government really got into it our education system has deteriorated to where many third world countries do a better job. Medicare and Medicaid are so rife with corruption that they are always near insolvent. Welfare has created a huge class of people who see no reason to work. Government cannot protect our borders, hell they can’t even win a war. We haven’t won a war or non-war since World War II. Our country is circling the toilet and in my opinion Government and those that we have elected to do our business are to blame. Ten years of not voting in nitwits and lawyers would help lots.
