Thursday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m. Cedric Dustin, Historical Society president and former director of the Pittsfield Aqueduct Company, will present a history of the company from its founding in 1884, its purchase by Pennichuck Water in 1998 to its present day ownership by the city of Nashua. 


Find out what Pittsfield notables started the company and why they thought Pittsfield needed a water company. Was some of the original pipe made of wood? How was the usefulness of the system demonstrated? Find out about an often under-appreciated aspect of Pittsfield.  


All are welcome to attend this presentation which will be held at the Pittsfield Historical Society Headquarters at 13 Elm Street, Pittsfield.  And yes, water will be served!

The Sixth Annual Mark Jarvis Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament


Plans are currently underway for organizing and conducting the Sixth Annual Mark Jarvis Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament. The tournament will be held at the Loudon Country Club, Loudon, New Hampshire, on Saturday, June 29, 2013.  Starting time is 7:30. Cost is $90.00 per player which includes continental breakfast, 18 holes of golf with cart, snack at the turn, buffet after the game, along with awesome raffles, contests, and more. The monies raised from this tournament go into a scholarship fund to aid graduating seniors at Pittsfield Middle High School.  Last year we were able to present 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 being given.


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.  Contact us at The Mark Jarvis Memorial Scholarship, PO Box 1542, Alton, NH 03809 or call Terry Jarvis at 859-3220.



Thank You


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. Very good, Stacey! I could not have made my points better than you 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 to help.


“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 Excellence

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 offshore suppliers. 


“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.
