2016 Multi-Town Yardsale


Who: You and the Greater Pittsfield Chamber of Commerce


What: Annual Yardsale


Where: Your address in Barnstead, Chichester, Epsom, Gilmanton, Loudon, Northwood or Pittsfield or New Community site at Dustin Park


When: June 3rd-5th, 8am-2pm, you choose 1, 2 or 3 days, same price.


How Much: $5 for individual registration, $10 for multifamily, $0 for non profits


Why? Started in 1997 by the Greater Pittsfield Chamber of Commerce the Annual Yardsale was created to bring people to town in a way that showed off the entire town of Pittsfield.  What better way to explore the beauty and opportunities in Pittsfield than by exploring the back roads and side streets and conversing with the residents. In the past 19 years, people from all over New England have come to our area to enjoy the Yardsale. Many neighboring towns started to hold town wide events at the same time. In 2013 the Pittsfield Town Wide Yardsale was changed to a Multi-Town Yardsale to include all member towns of the Chamber. This was done in order to offer the benefit of  this widely advertised event to our entire membership area as well as to help promote the yardsales of the weekend in all of our member towns. The transition has brought changes to the event, spreading the traffic over 7 towns instead of a concentration on downtown Pittsfield. We are excited to continue on with the larger event again this year, expanding to three days to allow shoppers and sellers more time to buy and sell.


It is a fun weekend for those visiting our area and a gratifying weekend for those participants cleaning out their attics and garages!


Participants register their home or business address in order to advertise their personal Yardsale. Multi family locations are welcome and encouraged. Non profits find this to be an excellent fund raising opportunity. The map of registered locations will be available online at in the days prior to the event. There will also be a printable list of addresses available on the website.


Want to register? Registration forms will be available in the Suncook Valley Sun and online at Questions? Contact [email protected]



Support The Beekeepers

A Local Beekeeper’s Advice

Submitted By Lauren Martin


Lauren Martin is a senior at Pittsfield Middle High School in Pittsfield. Lauren is earning a Biology credit based on research and experiments with the bee population through the Extended Learning Opportunity Program and amateur beekeeper Kate Dockham.


This is the third in a series of five articles that will focus on how to combat this problem locally. Resources used, shared by request.

As mentioned in the previous two articles, bees need all the help that they can get. Beekeepers are often are the best option for speaking out for their hives because of their experience with the insects. Kate Dockham is a local amateur beekeeper who agreed to be interviewed on the subject.


In order to help bees, it may not take more thought than deciding what kind of plants that will be put in your garden. When asked about what people can do to support local beekeepers, Kate Dockham said, “My first concern for my bees is food. So my neighborhood can help support my hives with gardens full of plants that need to be pollinated.” Daffodils, clover, and even hazelnut trees are a few of many sources of nectar for local bees. Even if you suspect that no bees are close by, Kate said, “While bees prefer to find food close to home, they will search for food up to 5 miles away.” Maintaining a garden is one small way to improve the lives of bees.


Another is buying honey. If it’s the fresh honey from a farmer’s market or directly from a beekeeper, buying honey supports beekeepers themselves.  Kate said, “I think for those that sell honey, people can support a backyard beekeeper with purchases because it is an expensive undertaking.” Each healthy hive a beekeeper cares for creates a surplus of honey, and it’s not detrimental to the bees to take some to support their beekeeping. An average hive can create around 30lbs of surplus honey a year, according to Urban Homestead. Beekeepers can ensure that the bees always have enough for winter, including supplementing if necessary, while still harvesting whole pounds of honey from their combs.


If you’re a beekeeper yourself, Kate had some advice for supporting other beekeepers, and said, “I think beekeepers can also support the cause by getting out to local school and organizations and explain the need, the dangers, help people understand so they are not in fear.” Education and awareness are important to removing some of the fear associated with bees. When people understand that honey bees mean no harm, willingness to help efforts to save the bees increases.


Regardless of how you show your support to honey bees, any small amount helps when considering the impact of CCD on hives. Honey bees are important locally and outside state borders. The next article will discuss specifics on how to support the bees directly.

VA Secretary Joins Others In Pledge To Donate Their Brains To VA-lead TBI Research Program

Submitted Via Merrill Vaughan 


WASHINGTON - The Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald announced that he, along with three-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Nancy Hogshead-Makar and former NFL player and Super Bowl champion Phil Villapiano, have pledged to donate their brains to advance brain research ‎conducted by VA in partnership with the Concussion Legacy Foundation.


The announcement was made at the VA-hosted Brain Trust: Pathways to InnoVAtion, a public-private partner event which builds on the trailblazing efforts of a number of distinguished VA brain researchers and brings together many of the most influential voices in the field of brain health to identify and advance solutions for mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


“As I listened to the very powerful personal stories from Veterans and the challenges the world’s top researchers are working to overcome in TBI, I made a decision: I decided to join the hundreds of Veterans and athletes who have already donated their brain to the VA Brain Bank so that I may, in a small way, contribute to the vital research happening to better understand brain trauma,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald. “This is a very, very serious issue, one that affects Veterans and non-Veterans alike. We don’t know nearly as much as we should about brain health, but if there’s one thing I’ve seen after visiting almost 300 VA facilities in the past two years: our Veterans, particularly those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan are greatly affected by TBI. VA needs to continue leading the coalition of scientists working to improve their lives.


“Building more and stronger strategic partnerships is one of the five strategies of the MyVA transformation. Today, we witnessed a room full of the world’s leading experts coming together under the convening authority of VA to solve one of our most significant challenges, particularly among our younger Veterans. I’m proud to do my part because I know that the researchers at VA are committed to improving lives and they have my full support.”


“Concussions were ignored for a long time and viewed largely as an invisible injury but chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is something we can see and something we can understand. It reveals that brain trauma can have long-term and devastating consequences,” said Chris Nowinski, former WWE wrester and co-founder and president of the Concussion Legacy Foundation which leads outreach and recruiting‎ for the VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank. “The Concussion Legacy Foundation is working to create a culture of brain donation in America by asking living athletes and Veterans to donate their brains to the Brain Bank to be researched by VA and Boston University researchers. It’s a perfect partnership because the most common victims of CTE are athletes and Veterans and by researching both as a part of one program, the sports community and Veteran community can work together to solve this problem. We all need to work together to solve the concussion crisis.”


The VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank is directed by VA’s own Dr. Ann McKee and is located at the Bedford VA Medical Center. It is now the largest sports mTBI and CTE repository in the world with over 325 brains donated, and over a thousand more pledged.


“The research on CTE all started with VA; it began with a VA patient who was a well-known boxer and from that first case of CTE, it has morphed into a tremendous research effort involving NIH, DoD and many other organizations,” said Dr. Ann McKee. “This is not a problem we can solve in any one lab. It’s going to take medical researchers and scientists working with business to detect where it first starts – on the battlefield and sports field. We will need health assessments going into the future for many years. That will take innovation and real input from industry to stimulate this research. That’s why we need a collective effort and his group of leaders is so important. I’m proud to be here encouraging us all to work together to better care for America’s Veterans and patients.”


Brain Trust: Pathways to InnoVAtion is a two-day public-private partnership event hosted by VA. As the largest, integrated health care system in the country, VA is using its convening authority to bring together many of the most influential voices in the field of brain health – to include the Department of Defense, the sports industry, private sector, federal government, Veterans and community partners - to identify and advance solutions for mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


Issues related to brain health and head trauma transcend the Veteran and military community, impacting all Americans. By highlighting the themes of collaborative research, medical technology, and sports innovation for player safety, Brain Trust participants are discussing the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and reintegration of Veterans, athletes, and Americans in general - suffering from head trauma related injuries. The event will also serve as a showcase for many of the advancements that VA is pioneering to improve brain health for Veterans, the military and for the American public at large.


In addition to many of the world’s most accomplished brain research scientists, Brain Trust attendees include sports commentator Bob Costas, Gen. Peter Chiarelli (CEO of One Mind, and the former Vice Chief of Staff of the Army), Briana Scurry (former U.S. Women’s Soccer Player), Jeanne Marie Laskas (author of the GQ article that inspired the movie “Concussion”), Terry O’Neil (16-time Emmy award winner), representatives from the NFL Players Association, the NFL, the NCAA, DARPA, DOD, NIH, CDC, and many more.

The Dixie Swim Club


The Pittsfield Players will present THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB at the Scenic Theatre on May 19th-21st at 7:30pm and the 22nd matinee at 2pm. Tickets are $12.00 and will go on sale on May 1 through Ticketleap or by calling the theatre 603-435-8852.


The play, directed by Carole Neveux, is about five Southern women, whose friendship began when they were on the swim club and continues still after thirty-three years. They recharge their relationships each August at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Sheree, the teams captain, continues to be the group leader. Dinah, the wisecracking overachiever is a career dynamo. Pampered Lexie, is determined to hold on to her youthful looks as long as she is able, even after numerous divorces. Vernadette, who is very self-deprecating, and acutely aware of chaos in her life, embraces it. Rounding out the group is their very own little “ray of sunshine” Sister Mary Esther.


These four weekends, which are a glimpse of the years they have been together, show us how they deal with life’s challenges, and even through the raucous repartee, when fate throws a wrench in their lives, their team work spirit proves to be strong and vibrant. This hilarious comedy is best described as a cross between “Steel Magnolias and The Golden Girls”

The April meeting of the Dorcas Guild of the First Congregational Church of Pittsfield began with a call to order and welcome by President Mary Jo Powelson. Gailann Newton began with devotions reading from:  If Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules. All joined in “The Lord’s Prayer.” Diane Vaughan read correspondence and sent around cards for signing. Both the secretary’s report and treasurer’s report were accepted as read.


The food basket brought by MaryJo went to Bev Murdough and will go next to Audrey Moore. The mystery package brought by Bev was won by Elaine Coffey.


We next discussed our project, which is twin-sized spreads, blankets, adult hats and mittens for the VA. These items go home with the vets as they transition.


The new plastic vestry tables will be purchased hopefully by the next meeting. Linda Towle gave an update on the nursery refurbishment project. The Merrimack County “Meals on Wheels” fundraiser, which is a “Walk-a-thon” on May 21, coincides with the memorial service for Sally Lewis.

Selectman’s Update

Submitted By Carl Anderson

Selectboard meeting 4/26/16


The Director of the Pittsfield Food Pantry met with the BOS to discuss their dilemma regarding their present location in the Town Hall basement. The town doesn’t appear to have any other property that would properly serve their need and bringing the current location up to State code looks prohibitively expensive. A letter will go out for publication asking private property owners to consider stepping up if they were given a tax break by the town.


Appointments were made for the Aqueduct Purchase Committee.


The Planning Board will be asking for anyone interested in representing them at the NH Regional Planning Commission to come forward.


A purchase offer for 11 Watson St. is being countered in writing.


A junkyard complaint was discussed with Health Officer Pszonowsky reporting his preliminary observations. Pszonowsky, wearing his other hat as Fire Chief, asked that instead of selling their obsolete generator, they give it to the Highway Dept. for emergency use there. Seemed like a good idea to which no one had any objection.


Last but not least, a new Selectboard member was appointed to complete the term of Nicholas Hayes who resigned in March. Out of 6 applicants, Roland Carter withdrew prior to the meeting; Adam Gauthier declined to be interviewed by the BOS; leaving the remaining applicants 15 minutes each to introduce themselves and answer a few questions. Fred Hast, Jim Allard, Arthur O’Hara, and Bob Wharem all presented themselves well during the interviews.


Despite a mandated public process that seemed, to me at least, to be awkward and frankly uncomfortable, the man selected by the Board to fill the position was Jim Allard. We welcome him and we’re glad to now move forward with a full 5 person Board.



Celebrate Drinking Water Week, May 1 -7, 2016

Submitted By Kathy Kelley Of Epping Well & Pump.


Did you know that about 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water?  97% of the water on the earth is salt water and humans can’t drink it.  2% of the water on earth is glacier ice at the North and South Poles. This ice is fresh water and could be melted; however, it is too far away from where people live to be usable.


Less than 1% of all the water on earth is fresh water that we can use for drinking, transportation, heating and cooling, industry, and many other purposes.


Water is a bargain. The average price of water in the United States is less than $4.00 for 1,000 gallons. At that price, a gallon of water costs less than one penny. How does that compare with one can of soft drink?


Fun Facts:

• Without water, the earth would look like the moon.

• All living things need water to live.

• People can live several weeks without food, but only a few days without water.

• We should drink six to eight glasses of water each day!

• Water makes up 83% of our blood, 70% of our brain, and 90% of our lungs.

• Overall, our bodies are 70% water.

• A tomato is about 95% water.

• An apple, a pineapple, and an ear of corn are each 80% water.


Conservation Tips:

• Check household faucets for leaks.

• A faucet with even a slow drip takes 10 to 25 gallons of water.

• 15 drips per minute add up to almost 3 gallons of water wasted per day, 65 gallons wasted per month, and 788 gallons wasted per year!

• A five-minute shower takes 10 to 25 gallons of water.

• Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator; then you won’t have to run tap water to cool it.

• Use a broom to sweep your driveway, garage, or sidewalk instead of using water.

• Use a bucket of water to wash your bike or the family car and rinse quickly with a hose.

• Water your lawn in the evening or in the early morning to avoid evaporation.

• Don’t leave water running; be sure to turn it off when you are finished.


*The above and additional information can be found at:  Check out this web site for info and interactive, fun and educational games. Happy drinking water week!
