The Sixth Annual Mark Jarvis Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament
Plans are currently underway for organizing and conducting the Sixth

two $1,000.00 scholarships.
Once again we are asking you to be a contributor and or supporter of
this fund raising tournament, but first, we would like you to know a
little more about the individual in whose honor the scholarship is
Mark Jarvis was a resident of New Durham, New Hampshire for over
thirty years. During that time, he was an educator in the Pittsfield
School System. At various times he taught special education
classed, served as the Director of Special Education and Student
Services, and was Vice Principal.
As a member of the New Durham/Alton community, he served for 28
years in the New Durham Volunteer Fire Department, lending his
abilities as an EMT and firefighter. He also served New Durham as a
member and chairmen of the Parks and Recreation Committee for over
ten years. He also served as a member and chairmen of the town
Budget Committee. In 2004 he and his wife Theresa were
co-recipients of the Citizen of the Year Award in New Durham.
Mark was an active Odyssey of the Mind/Destination Imagination Judge
for many years and was also active in the Boy Scouts, attaining the
level of Order of the Arrow.
His family, friends and co-workers wish to keep his memory and
dedication to youth and community alive by sponsoring a scholarship
program in his name. Mark always believed in those that had to work
a little harder to rise to the top, and we would like to keep that
spirit alive by honoring students who persevere and need a little
extra help to achieve their educational goals.
Please consider being a sponsor or contributor toward this memorial.

The Pittsfield Police Association would like to thank the PMHS
Student Council for coordinating the “Earth Day Clean Up” on Friday,
April 19th. The entire school was very active in different locations
around town. The group of students who came to the police station
and worked with Joe Darrah Enterprises went above and beyond and
brought the front of the station back to life. Thank you.
I’m submitting this letter to compliment and encourage Stacey
Polizotti. She has been writing letters expressing her opinions in
this paper lately and I thought she would appreciate a morale boost.

have. Keep up the great work and may God Bless you and your family!

Well, I think we are finally back on track this week. We sprung into
spring with a good weight loss for the week. We have two members
that are Miss Angels. Keep up the good work Irene and Janis and you
both will be at your goals in no time. Irene was also the lucky one
tonight with winning the wishing well and 50/50.
KOPS of the week was Barbara and TOPS was Donna. So, congrats ladies
and kudos to those who also had a good loss.
We got the bylaws done and we finished the contest that we had been
running for a few weeks. Those winners were Joyce and Janis. So
again I say kudos to those who did really good at keeping their
journals and having a weight loss!
Keep your eyes open for the town wide yard sale, we will be on
Tilton Hill this year and hope to have a good turn out.
We had a unwrapped auction this past week and had lots of nice stuff
go around the room. Thanks to everyone who brought things in and to
those who played. It was a good time.
We have a Inspiration Workshop on May 18. Those are always a good
way to see how members have lost.
At TOPS we are a good support weight loss group. If anyone is
interested in joining us, we meet on Tuesday nights at the St.
Stephen’s Church on Main Street in Pittsfield at 5:30 pm for our
weigh in and at 6:30 pm for our meeting. Any questions please call
Pat Smith at 435-5333 or Stuart Pike at 798-5981 and they would love
“Master yourself and you can be a master of anything.”
Hope everyone has a great week and see you all lighter next week!
Globe Boot Factory Receives 2013 Maine Governor’s
Award For Business
Manufacturer Continues Commitment To Employees
And American-Made Footwear
Globe Manufacturing Company announced that its sister company,
Falcon Performance Footwear in Auburn, Maine, was awarded the 2013
Governor’s Award for Business Excellence. The award was presented at
a ceremony held in Augusta this morning.
The Governor’s Award for Business Excellence recognizes that
business excellence is epitomized by a balanced combination of
manufacturing and service excellence, and a steadfast commitment to
employees, customers, and the community. The award was created in
1991 and is presented to for-profit companies that demonstrate a
consistently high level of attentiveness and dedication in these
areas. Falcon was one of 33 nominations submitted for a variety of
businesses across Maine.
Falcon employs 55 people at the Auburn facility. In the last five
years, the company has invested significantly in its capacity to
manufacture American-made footwear through lean manufacturing and
producing components that were previously only available from
“We are incredibly proud of our sister company and all of our
employees at the Auburn plant. They are valued members of the Globe
family with their day in and day out dedication to innovation,
quality, and customer service,” said Rob Freese, senior vice
president of marketing at Globe Manufacturing Company. “Our athletic
footwear for firefighters made by Falcon is recognized across the
fire service industry as unmatched in comfort and protection.”
Falcon was established in 1963 and has been making boots in Maine
for 50 years, focusing its business on firefighter and industrial
safety footwear in 2006. As a Globe partner, the company
manufactures 12 styles of boots that are SEI certified to National
Fire Protection Association standards. The unique construction of
Globe boots improves first responder performance and minimizes slips
and falls, a major hazard for firefighters on the fire ground.
Globe is the largest and most trusted manufacturer of
structural fire suits in the world. Over the years, Globe has been
responsible for introducing many of the materials, designs, and
construction methods we now take for granted in firefighter gear,
having invented the waterproof coat construction method that is
still in use in the fire service today. Learn more at
