The Sounds are Back as Benson Park Comes to Life

by Laurie Jasper Benson Park celebrated its fifth anniversary on Saturday, May 30 from 1 to 4 p.m. The Friends of Benson Park, Inc. organized the family-friendly event with games, music, raffles, food and fun. Most of the participants were set up in the area around the elephant barn in which the Friends of Benson Park plan to one day create a museum of Benson’s Wild Animal Farm memorabilia. Various volunteer booths included the Girl Scouts and friends expertly face painting; Rodgers Memorial Library Children’s Room staff helping children craft a bookmark and giving away balloon animals and balloon hat sculptures; Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt from Nashua busily scooping out free samples they were making on the spot with instant freeze liquid nitrogen; and Canobie Lake Park offering chances to win tickets and prizes. The Friends of Benson Park also sponsored a treasure hunt around the park and had many great raffle prizes donated for the event. Toys R Us’ Geoffrey Giraffe made an appearance, to the delight of many. Benson’s Bakery donated a delicious Benson Park-themed cake for the anniversary party.

How many can say they performed in an animal cage at Benson Park? After Saturday, the list is a bit longer, as musical groups entertained the crowds from inside the cage adjacent to the elephant barn. Hills Garrison music teacher Sarah Seckla and her fourth grade chorus and recorder group charmed the crowd with their music, as did others including the Ottarnic Dulcimer Club and the group Seat Belts Required. “I love the playground here, my favorite is the spider web, and I ride my bike, too,” said Benjamin Pinnell, 7, while watching his older sister, Olivia, perform.

“We love walking the trails and meeting friends here for a fun afternoon,” shared Benjamin’s mom, Elizabeth Pinnell. A stroll down “Memory Lane” to the Overlook gave guests a chance to chat with volunteer Cindy Provencher and hear her stories about the park’s history. Cindy’s uncle, the late Arthur Provencher, was the third and final owner of the park, and Cindy worked at Benson’s Wild Animal Farm for many years. “I sit here and the voices are back, the sounds are back. It’s alive again. You’re getting both memories now; you’re bringing generations together. I’m ecstatic to see the life back into this place. It is very rewarding,” Cindy said. Ruth Servant of Hudson was with her grandchildren and great- grandchildren, and has many memories of the former Benson’s, but is also making new memories at the park. “The people who have dedicated themselves to making this place so beautiful, it is just amazing,” she said. Hudson Selectman Patricia Nichols, a long-time Benson Park committee member and volunteer, was busy handing out free bags of popcorn. “This is my favorite place in the whole world. My heart is here. I love to see all of these people enjoying this place,” Patricia said. Children shrieking with laughter (and yes, even some tired tears), music filling the air, events being introduced via bullhorn, even the loud pop of an occasional balloon burst all combined with the hustle and bustle of people talking and enjoying a sunny, warm Saturday at Benson Park. The sounds are back. For more information about the Friends of Benson Park, please visit www.friendsofbensonpark.org.

Family Fun Day Supports Litchfield Girls Softball Scholarship Fund

by Tom Tollefson One of the long-standing community summer traditions continued last Saturday at Darrah Pond Memorial Park. Litchfield’s Family Fun Day has been an annual event for over 20 years. The event was made possible by Litchfield Girls Softball. It is their sole fundraiser to support their scholarship fund, which has provided more than $10,000 in scholarships over the years. The scholarship applicants are required to have played two seasons in Litchfield Girls Softball and meet a grade requirement.

The day was a celebration of softball, supporting the youth, families, and of course as the name implies “fun.” Across from the festivities, Litchfield Girls Softball games held their games at several of the fields. All divisions for girls ages 4-12 took place throughout the day. Many of the players and their families stopped by Litchfield Family Fun Day after their games. “It’s a beautiful day, the weather is fantastic, and the kids are happy,” said Marion Simoneau, one of the family fundraising coordinators for Litchfield Girls Softball. The day was complete with face painting, bounce houses, food, raffled

Hunter Henderson, 6, and Nathan Lean, 7, with their stuffed prizes from the softball toss

items, and carnival games such as

softball toss, ping pong toss, dice games,

a cake walk, and a dinosaur dig. One of the most popular games was

the dinosaur dig. Each child was given

a chance to dig through a bucket of

sand to find plastic eggs. Each egg had

a note inside that would either tell them

to choose from the toy box or the candy box for a prize. These prizes were common throughout the day at all the games, as children won candy, toys, and even stuffed animals. While the children enjoyed the

games, parents flocked to the raffle tables to use their dollar raffle tickets for a chance to win a prize of their own. There were 25-30 raffled goodies, including themed baskets, items, and gift cards. The raffled items were donated by Litchfield Girls Softball and many local businesses and restaurants such as Wilson Farm and McQuesten Farm, just to name a few. “We’ve been here for the second year. It’s nice that the community puts it on,” said Dave Farnham, who was there with his family.

GFWC Hudson Junior Women Mark Five Decades of Community Service

Hudson Junior Women Mark Five Decades of Community Service Butterfly garden marker at Benson Park by

Butterfly garden marker at Benson Park

by Laurie Jasper The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is a national organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. The GFWC Hudson Junior Woman’s Club celebrated its 50th anniversary Saturday, May 30, in conjunction with Benson Park’s fifth anniversary. Many past and present members of GFWC Hudson

Juniors attended a special celebration in the area of the butterfly garden beneath the pergola at Benson Park. Both the butterfly garden and pergola were special projects of the club. The pergola was built with money the club received for being awarded second prize in

2012 for GFWC Community Improvement Projects throughout the

country for the butterfly garden. Outgoing President Laura Edmands welcomed those in attendance, some of whom traveled from out of town and even out of state

to observe the special occasion. She asked trivia questions from

1965 in honor of the 50th anniversary, and then recognized several

members for their work. Pam Anderson was lauded for her work with the Benson Dog Park, Debbie Dunn for her efforts for the annual rabies clinic, Linda Kipnes for her legendary work on conservation projects and Michelle Champion for her tireless dedication. Special accolades were given to long-time member and past president Phyllis Appler, who long ago chose the mouse as their mascot, “Little in size, big in accomplishment” being the motto. “As a resource for the town, this group has been amazing. When things needed to be done, the question would be who could do this? Let’s ask the Junior Women,” said Appler.

submitted by Ruth Parker The bungalow-style home, shown in the first picture, on Ferry Street was built of stone blocks with a metal roof after the previous family home was destroyed by fire in 1913. A careful look will show the electric

car tracks on Ferry Street. The previous home, in the same location, was a two-story clapboard house. It is shown here in

1913 fire as the firemen

from Hudson were battling the blaze which destroyed the house. We see the men on the porch roof with hoses in an attempt to contain the fire. These houses were the home of the

Bassett/Johnson family from about

1890 until the mid-1970s. The first

Indian Head bank building in Hudson that opened in November 1965 was to the right of this home. By the mid- 1970s the bank had expansion plans and this property was purchased, the building razed, and the enlarged bank building constructed by 1976. The original bank building was moved to the corner of Ferry and Library streets and is now in use by the Hudson Fire Department. Almeda (Bassett) Johnson was a Hudson native. She married Charles Harold Johnson of Portsmouth in 1925. They spent most, if not all, of their married life in the bungalow on 15 Ferry Street. He worked as a foreman in Nashua. Almeda was active in

the Community Church, women’s organizations, and, in the mid- to late- 1950s, was the proprietor of Wee Wisdom Kindergarten, which she operated from her home. Almeda’s father, Joseph Bassett, was a painter of high-end carriages and automobiles.

Ready for Library Park Construction?

by Len Lathrop Hudson Selectmen during their May 26 regular board meeting approved a substantial project that will create new turn lanes and updated traffic control and equipment around Library Park. For those unfamiliar with its location, Library Park, which is sometimes referred to as the town common, is located between Derry Street, Library Street and Route 111, also known as Ferry Street. The contract was awarded to electric light company of Cape Neddick, Maine, the sole bidder, for a total of $357,290. This construction will be 80 percent funded by the State of New Hampshire whose portion is $285,832 and the 20 percent home portion is $71,458. The town funds will come from collected corridor of funds that builders have contributed as they have developed projects around the roadways. Hudson’s town engineer, Elvis Dhima, will supervise this project and, in a brief oral explanation to the selectmen, explained roadway changes that will include a second right-hand turn lane on Route 3A Derry Road where it meets Route 111 (Ferry Street) as you head over the bridge toward Nashua. On the other side of the park as you head to Route 102 (Library Street), the right-hand turn lane for Highland Avenue will be removed and there will only be one lane in each direction across Library Street. New signal lighting will be installed at all three intersections with new handicapped-accessible

ramps, pedestrian poll trip boxes, and new traffic control boxes with battery backup at Library/Ferry, Highland/Library and Ferry/Derry. There will also be new handicapped-accessible ramps with pedestrian polls at Derry at the northern apex of Library Park. The invitation to bid prepared by CLD Consulting Engineers of Manchester specify that all work must be completed prior to Sept. 2 of this year with substantial completion by Aug. 3. All curb ramps will be ADA compliant. During their meeting, much discussion was about the needs of this project, its costs and how it would improve those intersections. One big point made by Selectman Luszey was that until the other side of the bridge is improved in Nashua this won’t help with traffic flow. Chairman Maddox explained that that bridge intersection is going to become a roundabout that is already under construction. While all three motions to support this project were approved Selectman Luszey abstained from all three votes. The selectmen joked during the meeting that this project has been on the drawing board after first being proposed by the national regional planning authority maybe 10 years ago. Hopefully these improvements will streamline the traffic on Route 102, which can be backed up past the high school on many mornings. A diagram of library path that was presented by Engineer Dhima is included for your review.

submitted by Presentation of Mary Academy, Hudson The fifth grade class at the Presentation of Mary Academy has had the pleasure of working with Officer Avery and the DARE program. The DARE (drug, abuse, resistance, education) program is comprised of 10 lessons. Some of the topics covered at the fifth grade level are how to express yourself confidently using verbal and non-verbal communication, stress management, learning the dangers of alcohol and tobacco use, identifying a ‘‘help network’’ and learning how to become a good citizen. Throughout this program, the students have had the opportunity to role-play in scenarios as well as work together to problem solve. The core theme in all 10 lessons is how to: define a problem, assess their options on how to handle the problem, respond to the problem after they have thought about their options and the positive and negative consequences to them, evaluate … take a step back and reflect on if they made a good choice and why they think they did. Officer Cassandra Avery sais, “It is my goal and DARE’S goal to help teach our youth how to be confident and make safe and responsible choices that will assist them in leading productive healthy drug- free lives.”

The Word Around Town

Letters to our Editor

Jeanie Barkley Memorial Blood Drive Saves Lives

On December 22, 2007, Jeanie Barkley, my mother, was tragically lost. She was a devoted wife, mother, friend and volunteer. She was always the first to volunteer when any help was needed. She always put others needs before her own. Whether it was the FOM at Alvirne, or the Special Olympics, you could have found my mother there. The community felt the horrible wake from her passing. In 2006, my mother was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, a disease that made her body stop making blood. In 20 months, my mother received over 100 blood transfusions. Those blood donations kept her body going until the Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry found a donor. Without blood donors just like you, Jeanie would have never made it to receive her bone marrow transfusion. When you’re healthy, it’s easy to forget what it’s like to be sick. When you’re sick, when your body stops doing something fundamental, it’s when you count on complete stranger’s generosity to save your life. On Friday, June 12, at the Hudson Community Center, the Jeanie Barkley Memorial Blood Drive will be held from 12 to 7 p.m. This will be the eighth year, having collected over 1,000 units of blood in the past

seven years. The event will be hosted by the American Red Cross and the Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry. Donating blood is available through a walk-in basis, or you can make an appointment through the Red Cross. Singing up for the bone marrow registry is free, and painless. The registration takes under five minutes, and includes only a questionnaire and a cheek swab.

Lara Barkley, Hudson

Giving is Good

My name is Tracy Gendreau, and I welcome you to join us at the eighth annual Jeanie Barkley Memorial Blood Drive being held at the Hudson Community Center on Friday, June 12, from 12 to 7 p.m. Jeanie was a dedicated mom, wife, daughter, and dedicated volunteer for the community of Hudson. She could be found everywhere in town supporting her daughters as they marched in the band, went to church, attended Girl Scout events or anywhere they were in attendance. She had an infectious giggle, and a heartwarming smile. Every group in which she was involved has become a part of her ever expanding family. She is terribly missed, but her indomitable spirit will live on through everyone she touched. Jeanie lost her battle with Aplastic Anemia in 2007.

While undergoing treatments, she received over 100 units of blood to help her through her illness and to gain strength for all she was going through. To support others in their fight, please consider donating blood at the Red Cross Blood Drive in Jeanie’s memory. Remember, Giving is Good.

Tracy Gendreau, Hudson

Being an Elected Official is a Tough Job

by George Lambert

My name is George Lambert, I am a former selectman, State Rep, and was your State Senate candidate from Litchfield in the last general election (and intend to be again in the next cycle). What I have learned personal experience that

being a candidate or elected official in any capacity is a tough job, because no matter how hard you try there is no pleasing everybody. I have now

served the Town of Litchfield for nearly a decade and have met most of the hard-working community volunteers in our town, but to the naysayers, everyone who makes a contribution probably has an angle. Last year in the October 31, 2014, issue of this very paper, I submitted a letter to the editor reminding our tax-paying citizens of the hard work and cost savings delivered by Selectman John Brunell in his secondary role as IT Contractor for the town. When our previous IT company was not up to the challenge of meeting our community needs, the Board of Selectmen on October 15, 2012, publicly discussed the engagement of IT Professional Brunell, as we have done with other important town services like the cable recording services. I have heard rumblings that a selectman who manages

departments should not be working as an employee, but we have

had selectman and other town officials doing business with the town since I was first elected, often at discounts to the town and the taxpayers. While I cannot confirm but

Guest EditorialEditorial
Guest
EditorialEditorial

I do believe one of our selectman is an

active member of the fire department.

I can tell you for sure that two of them

have been in the past. In a small town, the mixed roles of vendor and official might seem cloudy, but as is the nature

of the conflict of interest policy of the town and the state, full disclosure is the key to making these partnerships work. I have never seen John do anything that did not include “Full Disclosure” at every turn. Some have commented that it is unreasonable that John both oversees and works for department heads at the same time. In reality, since the board eliminated the department liaison positions and moved all of the management to the Town Administrator, the role of the selectmen has been to direct the town administrator and the town administrator works directly with the department heads. If we did not have this clear chain of command and responsibility, we would have too many chiefs giving orders. Our department heads and employees receive great benefit from one direct point of contact with management, which makes

their jobs clear. John is not in a position to make unilateral decisions on spending, as that is a board decision, or to intimidate employees, because no single selectman can act alone, they make group decisions. As I have said since he started working on IT projects for the town, we should be thanking John profusely for saving us, the taxpayers, hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years and it is well overdue on our part to recognize this work with a nominal stipend that pales in comparison to the market value of the service. In the four years that I served on the Board of Selectmen with John I concluded that he was a man of utmost integrity. While we may not have always agreed on the issues, I always felt that he had true commitment to the town. I encourage anyone who has questions to refer to my previous letter to the editor, or my previous discussions before both the Board of Selectmen, and the Budget Committee of the exceptional value that he has provided the town. To the best of my knowledge neither the board or the selectmen in question have ever tried to hide anything and to the contrary they have on ample occasions highlighted not only the potential conflicts but the extreme benefit to the town how much of a contribution that he makes. I again would like to invite anyone with questions about the history of this to contact me directly, or to schedule an open hearing type discussion to go over the history. I can be contacted at marchon@gmail.com or via telephone 315-2105.

Nashua Woman Charged with Witness Tampering and Stalking

submitted by Hudson Police Department On Friday, May 29, members of the Hudson Police Legal Division and Community Oriented Policing Unit arrested Gale Doiron, 57, of Nashua, charging her with four counts of Stalking, Class A misdemeanors, and one count of Witness Tampering, Class B felony. On May 27, Hudson Police learned that Doiron had violated conditions of her bail by having contact with her son’s domestic violence victim on four separate occasions. During one of those occasions, Doiron attempted to induce the victim to lie in her son’s upcoming Superior Court case. Doiron was already out on bail for one count of Criminal Liability for Conduct of Another where it is alleged she assisted her son in stalking his victim. Doiron’s son, Arthur Doiron, 37, is currently being held at the New Hampshire State Prison. Arthur Doiron is facing numerous Domestic Violence and Felony Stalking charges in the Hillsborough County Superior Court. The investigation resulted in the arrest of Gale Doiron who is currently being held on $10,000 cash bail at the Hillsborough County Jail pending her arraignment. A Class B felony is punishable by up to three and a half to seven years in prison, exclusive of fines. Each Class A misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in a County House of Correction, exclusive of fines.

Hudson Fire Seeks Residents’ Help with Survey

submitted by Hudson Fire Department To better meet the needs of the community, the Hudson Fire Department has developed a survey to gain insight into residents’ knowledge, concerns, and opinions related to the possible construction of a new fire station on Lowell Road. In appreciation for residents completing the survey, one respondent will be chosen in a random drawing for dinner at the fire station with Group 1. The short survey asks the respondent to rate the department’s delivery of information on why a new station is needed, as well as if there a need for a new station and concerns that may be related to the station. Each survey question also provides the respondent an opportunity to provide open-ended comments, without restriction. Additionally, if a respondent wishes to be contacted regarding their responses or have questions, they can include their contact information in the appropriate section of the survey. The observations, opinions, and recommendations of residents are valuable, as the department continually strives to improve all operations and fire protection services. Please take a moment to complete the survey to assist the department in identifying the needs of a new station, areas for improvement, and opportunities for continued growth. The survey is currently available and will remain online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JMB6T72.

The New Hampshire Special Olympics State Summer Games will be held this weekend, June 5 to 7, at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. More than 800 athletes from across the Granite State are preparing for events in athletics, aquatics, bocce and more.

The 39th Army Band will Play a Free Concert on the Green

submitted by Jim Ehlinger, Post Commander, John H. Hargreaves Memorial VFW Post 10722 The John H. Hargreaves Memorial VFW Post 10722 in Pelham is proud to welcome the 39th Army Band to Pelham to perform a free public concert on the Village Green. The concert will be on June 29 starting at 6 p.m. The concert will be a great time for everyone to come out and enjoy the music of the 39th Army Band. They have performed all over New Hampshire and in faraway places such in Greece, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Costa Rica. The 39th Army Band, New Hampshire Army National Guard, can trace its lineage back 136 years to its inception in Manchester in 1879. When activated for the Spanish American War, it was known as the Band Section, 1st Infantry New Hampshire National Guard. During World War I, it became known as the Band Section for 1st Army Headquarters Regiment. During World War II, it was known as the band for 172nd Field Artillery, New Hampshire. Since 1947, it has been known by its current designation as 39th

Army Band New Hampshire Army National Guard. The band is comprised of musicians representing many communities throughout the state. The members of the 39th Army Band are dedicated soldiers whose high standard of performance is respected and anticipated wherever they perform. Truly, the 39th Army Band is a shining example of New Hampshire’s soldiers at their finest. For those who are not familiar with Pelham’s Concerts on the Green, the concert will start at 6 p.m. and will be held outside, so for seating, it is recommended to bring some lawn chairs or a blanket and set up anywhere on the Village Green lawn. Concessions of hot dogs and hamburgers will be sold by the VFW and will used to benefit veteran programs in Pelham and across New Hampshire. Unfortunately, due to the Army Band’s limited availability, there will not be a rain date if there is inclement weather. The VFW hopes to see everyone on June 29 to hear some of NH’s best musicians.

LMS Students Organize Fundraiser for McKenzie Lowe Scholarship Fund

Organize Fundraiser for McKenzie Lowe Scholarship Fund Courtesy photo submitted by Emily Gamache, Student Council

submitted by Emily Gamache, Student Council Secretary Two students from Litchfield Middle School, Hannah Cuvellier and Maddie Davis, both went to Kiddie Konnection with McKenzie Lowe. They were profoundly upset when they heard about her passing in the fall, so they decided to do something about it. The two girls made a presentation to the student council what they could do to help. Litchfield Middle School held a PJ day in her honor in the winter. Every student or staff member who wished to participate had to pay at least $1 to wear pj’s to school. The money collected was donated in McKenzie’s name to a local bank that has established a scholarship in her name. A total of $265 was raised by wearing pajamas to school. Many people heard or knew about McKenzie in the student council and loved the idea of donating to help fund the scholarship. Hannah and Maddie made everyone aware of the fundraiser and showed how much they cared about McKenzie.

According to Dravis, Williamstown’s newly elected selectmen Chairwoman Jane Patton said the finalists for the town manager’s position were Jason Hoch and Angus Jennings. Final interviews for the Williamstown position will be on Friday, June 12. Hoch is currently the town administrator in Litchfield, the first in the town’s history. Hoch has been the Litchfield town administrator since 2010 and prior to that was a town manager in Plaistow, N.H., and also manager in Littleton, N.H.

Endangered Turtle Sighted in Pelham

by Kaela Law On a hike through the woods in the Gumpus Pond Conservation Area (150 acres), Chairman of the Conservation Commission Paul Gagnon made a rare Blanding’s turtle sighting. Blanding’s turtles are distinguished by their bright yellow chins and helmet-shaped shells. They are endangered in the New England region. This turtle was seen and photographed “on the blue trail in Gumpus,” said Gagnon who pointed to the printer-friendly trail map, which can be found online at pelhamweb. org. “The front left foot of this turtle was missing toes, and the shell had a healed-over crack.” Gagnon speculated that it must have been previously hit by a car or a lawn mower. He later reported the sighting with the NH Department of Environmental Sciences. Loren Valliere, biologist at the NH Fish and Game, helped explain why these turtles are endangered in the state of New Hampshire. Blanding’s Turtles “depend on a long life span, and do not reach reproductive age until at least 15 years,” Valliere said. In other words, they must survive their first 15 years of life before they can produce and grow their numbers. “They are also long-ranged, and travel a lot between wetlands and vernal pools, so roads are a major issue for them.” As more land in Southern NH becomes developed and these animals suffer habitat fragmentation, they become more susceptible to roadway dangers and also population divide.

The Gumpus Pond Conservation Area in Pelham abuts the Hudson, NH Musquash Conservation Land (416 acres). Gagnon and the Pelham

Conservation Commission are working on a couple of land parcel purchases that will connect Gumpus to the Merriam/Cutter Conservation Area (147 acres). This creates well over 700 acres of contiguous conserved outdoor space in which wildlife can thrive. “We really have a tremendous asset right in our own backyard,” Gagnon stated. In 2003, Pelham’s Conservation Commission set a 10-year plan of acquiring 1,000 acres of land for

permanent

natural preservation. To date they have been largely successful and have totaled over 800 acres of acquisition. As the commission works to reach their goal, the residents in Pelham are left with wonderful outdoor recreational space to enjoy the natural world. For help determining the type of animals encountered on nature hikes out in the Pelham trails, pictures may be sent to the Pelham Conservation Commission via the pelhamweb. com. It is encouraged to view wildlife but to leave it generally undisturbed. Additionally, the list of endangered species in NH can be located and sightings documented with the New Hampshire Natural Heritage Bureau here: http://

BELIEVE IN POSITIVITY

Pelham Relay for Life - Needs Your Support

IN POSITIVITY Pelham Relay for Life - Needs Your Support submitted by Lisa Martin On May

submitted by Lisa Martin On May 1, 2014, my “new normal” began. Following a CT scan and blood test, I was advised to go to the emergency department at Massachusetts General Hospital. My youngest daughter drove me and stayed with me for 10.5 hours as we waited to get admitted. I arrived at the hospital with a blood pressure of 220 over 100, and creatinine level of 18, (should be less than 1). Apparently, I was in renal failure and didn’t even know it! Over the next five days we worked to get my creatinine level within a normal range and followed that with a series

of tests that resulted in a diagnosis of stage 4 colon cancer. I remember telling the doctor that my plan was to beat the odds he had given me and fight for my life. It’s been a year of many challenges: improving my health, keeping my business running, being strong for my daughters, learning to accept the help of others, and to reconstruct and strengthen friendships. Each day I woke up was another gift, even on the really hard days – and believe me, there are really hard days. I have been blessed with my family, friends and community coming to my aid helping me with medical costs, living expenses, keeping my spirits up, walking with me, supporting me and being there for me like never before. I learned that as much as this illness has changed my life,

it has also changed the lives of those around me. My goal is to be as positive and as strong as possible, but sometimes I have to rely on the strength of those around me. A year ago

a friend introduced me to the Relay For Life of Pelham, and I

felt compelled to assemble a team as a way of giving back in

honor of all of those who have helped me over the last year.

I am grateful to be strong enough to walk with my team, to

continue running my business, to watch my youngest daughter graduate and to reconnect with friends and strengthen family ties.

Every day is a gift, live it to the fullest!

Richard C. “Dick” Burton, Sr., 86, of Pelham, died May 28, 2015, at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Manchester. He was the beloved husband of 62 years to the late Barbara A. (Spearel) Burton who died December 19, 2014. Born in Nashua, January 28, 1929, the son of

the late Ervin J. and the late Mary Louise (Prince) Burton, he received his education in the Nashua school system. A veteran of World War II, Dick proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy.

Before retiring, Dick was employed as a Machine Operator with Nashua Corporation in Nashua for over 34 years. He was an active member of the First Congregational Church in Pelham for many years as well as the Pelham Senior Center.

He received his Amateur’s Radio License in June of 1965 and was one of the founders of the “4PMers Net” which still meets on a daily basis. He has made friends all over the world talking on the ham bands. Mr. Burton is survived by two daughters Deborah A.

Hudson Junior Women- continued from front page

5, 2015 - 11 Hudson Junior Women- continued from front page Past and present members gather

Past and present members gather in the butterfly garden for a photo. Front row: Cindy Undercofler (in blue), Pam Anderson, Lorraine Madison, Phyllis Appler, Barbara Tellinghuisen, Janet Bowden, and Debbie Dunn. Back row: Arlene Creeden, Judy Boska, Laura Edmands, Linda Kipnes, Michelle Champion, Micoya Hutchins, Jane Bowles, Susan Cloutier, and Linda Fisher.

In preparation for the event, Phyllis Appler and Laura Edmands met with Ruth Parker at the Hudson Historical Society, perused Hudson Fortnightly scrapbooks and created a poster board of old notices, clippings and photos. The Hudson Fortnightly was the original GFWC Club and they then sponsored the Junior Woman’s Club. “It is amazing the legacy we have and it is our job to see that continue,” said Edmunds.

President Linda Edmands speaks to the group.

Three new members received membership pins. Laura Edmands then passed the president’s pin to Linda Kipnes. The president’s pin is the original one that Maude French wore years ago and

was donated to the club by the French family. After the formal proceedings were completed, the group enjoyed refreshments and reminisced, with much kidding and laughter. Someone mentioned the annual school census, which used to be the job of the Hudson Junior’s, which the group was paid $10,000 to complete. Once that stopped, the Hudson GFWC decided to host a craft fair to raise money. The first fair had about four or five tables. Today, the annual GFWC Hudson Junior Woman’s Craft Fair is their biggest fundraiser, with between 100-118 tables. Many recalled when Alvirne High School burned down in 1974 and the GFWC provided refreshments for all the volunteers busy salvaging what they could. They also started all the school libraries, host an annual rabies clinic and host candidates’ night every year. They also host the annual Bunny Breakfast at Easter time. There are many more completed projects and events

throughout town due to this dynamic group of women.

Pelham VFW Presents Boulet and Schloner with Volunteer Award

Memorial Post 10722 were truly honored to present Ray Boulet, owner and head chef, as well as Barbara Schloner, chef, a “Volunteer of the Year Award” from their Post. Boulet and Schloner are truly remarkable people who are there when you need help no matter what the reason especially when it comes to veterans. “They have gone above and beyond to help with all the hospital programs I promote as hospital chairman for the Department of NH Ladies Auxiliary VFW which primarily focuses on supporting all military as well as our VFW Post in Pelham,” Madeline said. They have continuously shown their love for this country, especially when it comes to helping veterans, and for that they are truly deserving of this award.

submitted by Madeline Dreusicke, President, Ladies Auxiliary, John H Hargreaves Memorial VFW Post 10722 On Sunday, May 31, 16 members of the John H. Hargreaves Memorial Post 10722 in Pelham came together to enjoy the White Birch Banquet Hall’s Breakfast Buffet in Hudson. They also had a special mission on Sunday. They were all there in honor of Loyalty Day, which is actually May 1. It is a day set aside for all Americans to reaffirm their loyalty to our great country, especially for the heritage of American freedoms, and it is a day that we honor those who give of themselves within our communities and help support all veterans of the United States. Post Commander Jim Ehlinger and Ladies Auxiliary President Madeline Dreusicke of the John H. Hargreaves

“Thumbs down to the Smith Plumbing Van that has just been sitting dead on Fulton Street in Hudson. It is an eye sore for the neighborhood and shows no respect for potential customers. I will be going elsewhere for my plumbing needs and I hope others do too.”

“Thumbs up to Miss Tori and Miss Jillian from MHDC! Faith can’t wait to dance like you girls someday!”

“Thumbs up to Carolyn Leite, the 2015 NH Band Director of the Year! You are amazing and super talented! Litchfield is fortunate to have you.”

“Thumbs up to Coach Beede and Coach Bellino for a terrific varsity lacrosse season! Cannot wait until next year. Cap and Jake - you will be missed; wishing you both much success in the future!”

“Thumbs down to the loud black mustang that is speeding all over Litchfield. Where are the police? It’s time to slow this reckless driver down before he/she hurts someone.”

“Thumbs up to the CHS track coaches for theirs 10-plus years of dedication to the sport. You will be missed. Best of luck in your future endeavors.”

“Thumbs up to the person named Mike who made me a

patriotic trash pickup stick. I very much appreciate it and thank you very much.”

“Thumbs down. Because it’s not your father’s party anymore,

is it. Vote for me and I promise to serve only the wealthiest 1% of all Americans. I am bought and paid for and greed and profit is why I seek election. Why are Republicans still part of the American party when they are privately owned?”

“Thumbs down to the brain washing main stream media with their liberal bias and liberal opinions making sure people only hear news slanted with their liberal garbage against anything conservative.”

“Thumbs down to people who have to mow their half acre of lawn every day in Litchfield, followed by power washing the commercial equipment.

Get a hobby - give us all

a break. P.S. Thanks for

not starting till 9 a.m. on

Sundays.”

Thumbs up to our son, Kevin, for graduating summa cum laude from the University of New Hampshire on June 16 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology. We are so proud of you!” Love, Mom and Dad.

“Thumbs down to the septic service company that charges extra if the pumping time goes over

a certain amount of time.

They advertise a price based on the size of the tank. The price they advertise should be the price.”

their accomplishments are a testament to the parents and staff at Alvirne. But on this upcoming graduation, let’s not forget the students who have struggled; academically, physically, socially, and/or emotionally. These are students we should also be proud of, when going to school and participating in life on a daily basis can be a very painful experience. Although they will not be receiving awards, these students and their parents will be just as proud. ‘Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.’” Orison Swett Marden

“Thumbs up to the WATS club at Alvirne for putting on another successful prom! The kids had a blast! And a thumbs up to Mr. Beals for always being so involved with the kids with special needs and keeping them involved in the school community.”

“Thumbs down to the HLN for continuing to print Joe D’Aleo’s weekly right-wing weather propaganda. His theories have been thoroughly debunked by

the scientific community so reading his nonsense

is about as useful as trying to find truth in an

astrology column. While he proudly touts his former chairmanship of the AMS from many years ago, I wonder what he would say about his colleagues there today who state ‘It is clear from extensive scientific evidence that the dominant cause of the rapid change in climate of the past half century is human-induced increases in the amount of atmospheric greenhouse gases.’ If the HLN feels they must keep printing this drivel, can we at least have a left leaning column as well for some balance?” “Thumbs up to my wife, as she walks in her commencement this weekend at Granite State College and receives her Bachelors of Science in

The Excitement of Softball’s Senior Day didn’t Affect the Win

of Softball’s Senior Day didn’t Affect the Win Captain Kaycee Carbone helps her team wrap up

Captain Kaycee Carbone helps her team wrap up the regular season with a win against Bedford.

by Len Lathrop On Friday the Alvirne Softball girls wrapped up the season at home against Bedford. They celebrated the senior captains Kaycee Carbone and Haleigh Cote. Nicole Teague took the win, pitching six innings, giving up three runs earned on four hits and striking out three. Teague’s record this season is 10 wins and four losses. Kelli Kennedy, who recorded the save, pitched one inning, gave up no runs and no hits, struck out one, and walked no one. Alvirne was scoreless going into the bottom of the third when Haleigh Cote led off with a walk and was advanced to second on a Kaycee Carbone sacrifice bunt. Cote then advanced to third, Vivian Susko grounded out and Cote scored on a wild pitch. At the next at bat in the fourth inning, Ashley Silva hit a single through the right side, and Liz Derosa followed with a single, also to the right side. Silva crossed on a Brooke Schrieb line-drive single to right; then both Derosa and Schrieb scored on a Cote single up the middle. In the fifth inning, catcher Sara Siteman reached after being hit by a pitch. After a Silva single to right side, Siteman scored. On a Derosa single up the middle in the sixth inning, Carbone walked and advanced to second on a Jenna Bradish groundout. Carbone then stole third and scored when the throw went into left field. The Broncos’ regular season record going into the playoffs is 14 and 4. Alvirne’s NHIAA playoff run began just after the HLN went to press on Wednesday. Its first playoff game was at home at 4 p.m. when the Broncos, ranked fifth in the tournament, played Exeter, ranked 12th. A positive outcome from that game would take the Lady Broncos into the quarterfinals on Saturday, June 6 at 4 p.m. where they could play the winner of the Dover/Bedford contest. The semifinals will take place Wednesday, June 10, at Southern New Hampshire University at 7 p.m., and the state finals will be the following Saturday, June 13, at 4:30 p.m., also at SNHU. The HLN wishes the Bronco Ladies great success and would look forward to showing you pictures of them holding up the championship trophy.

Shaye Thyme let one go for a goal in the 2nd half.

submitted by Michelle Rourke The Alvirne High School boys and girls’ Lacrosse teams played their final games of the season on Friday, at home, in a rematch against the Inter- Lakes Lakers. Both teams had great wins in their final games, with the girls’ score at 8-6, and the boys’ score at 13-8. Lacrosse is in its second season as a pay-to-play sport at Alvirne High School. The girls’ team, led by Coach John Fichera, had a 3-8 season, while the boys’ team, led by head coach Kyle Martin, finished the season 8-5. Not only did the teams see success in their season, they were able to play their first-ever home games at Alvirne High School. During the final games of the season, the teams celebrated senior night with six players on the boys’ lacrosse team; Zac Brower, Frank Cunniff, Ryan Godschall, Brett Pitre, Cam Rourke, and Pat Shah. Congratulations to the lacrosse graduating seniors. These great athletes were a huge part of the success of the first two seasons of lacrosse at Alvirne High School. As they all go off in different directions to follow their own personal dreams and goals for the future, everyone wishes to thank them for being part of the team and the AHS Lax family. Gentlemen, it is hoped you had as much fun playing as those who did watching you play. Best wishes for health, happiness and success!

Broncos Push Winning Streak to Four

by Zack Miller When the going gets tough, the tough get going. You could use that phrase to describe the Alvirne Baseball team in the month of May. Last month, the Broncos had a record of 8-3,

and added that eighth win on last Friday’s game, which also turned out to be their Senior Day, when they took on the Owls of Timberlane High School. Coach Lee’s team didn’t waste any time giving their parents something to cheer about, as they got rid of their goose egg in the bottom of the first. After Brown popped out to the shortstop, Rauseo got the action started with a single into right center field. He then

stole second as J. Hudson struck out, giving Alvirne their first runner in scoring position for the day. LaMothe came up next, and slapped a single into left field, which brought Rauseo home to score, making the score 1-0 Broncos. The bottom of the second proved to be their money inning, as they scored five runs and had everyone in their lineup come up to bat. Derek Hudson grounded out to begin the inning, but Teague hit a shot to third, which passed right under the dive of Timberlane’s third baseman into left field. Simard followed in Teague’s steps, as he hit one over to third which took a hop for the good guys, and went through the third baseman’s legs into left field again. With Teague on second and Simard on first, Nardelli added some cushion as

he hit an RBI infield single that barely made it past the pitcher’s mound. The first baseman charged, but couldn’t handle the ball, allowing Nardelli to reach first and Teague to score. Brown then drew a walk, which loaded the bases for Rauseo, who would deliver his second hit of the day. He hit a single into center, bringing Simard home and pushing the lead to 3-0, while loading the bases

Teague slides into home to score one of Alvirne’s eight runs.

The Broncos would add one more in the bottom of the third, and another run in the bottom of the sixth inning, giving them an 8-0 win. “I’m proud of the way the guys played,” said Coach Mike Lee. “They played some good baseball in the month of May.” As the calendar turns to June, all eyes now focus on the tournament, when winning has a whole new meaning, and losing sends you home until next year.

again. J. Hudson then came up and kept the hit parade going, gathering his

first hit of the day with a single to left fi eld, driving in Nardelli, and adding another run to the score board. LaMothe was the next batter, and made nice contact with the ball, driving one deep enough into right field. Although it didn’t fall for a hit, it managed to score another run for Alvirne, making the score 5-0. With J. Hudson on first, Emanuelson came to the plate. During his at bat, Hudson started off for second and made it, thanks in part to the throw from the catch going into center field. This in turn allowed Rauseo to score,

pushing the lead up once again, this time to 6-0.

Grasshoppers Top Mud Hens; Boulanger Tosses a ‘No-No’

submitted by Charlie Huggins In the Majors division of Hudson Youth Baseball the Mud Hens have been the class of the league all season. The Grasshoppers went into the recent tilt with the undefeated Hens knowing they needed to play a near-perfect game to have a chance to put a blemish on that record. The game was tight and, with one swing of the bat in the top of the fourth, Carlos Camargo deposited a 2-2 pitch over the center field fence for a three-run home run and gave the Grasshoppers an 8-3 lead. The Mud Hens proved why they are the top team in the bottom of the sixth as they plated three runs and got the game to 8-6. With the tying run on first, the last out was made when a runner was picked off at third ending the rally and the game. The Grasshoppers were led by Camargo (two hits, four RBI), Josh MacDonald

(two hits), Evan Beals, Kyle Boulanger, Dylan Haley and Casey Corleto with one hit each. The Mud Hens were paced by Grady Hudson (two hits), Jagger Forsyth and Xavier Santana one hit each. In another heavyweight battle, the Grasshoppers squared off with the Bandits in the opening game of the playoffs and did not disappoint any of the sold-out crowd as they turned in their best performance of the season in every area of the game. On the mound, Kyle “The Bull” Boulanger tossed his first career no hitter, striking out nine and walking only two as the Grasshoppers took the game 10-0. Boulanger was helped by three incredible defensive plays in the outfield turned in by Abi Narra, Cody Rae and Liz Huggins. The catch by Huggins actually resulted in a double play as she fired a strike to second to double up the runner and end the inning. At the plate, Boulanger, Josh MacDonald and Dylan Haley had two hits apiece with Evan Beals, Casey Corleto and Anthony Santos grabbing one hit each. Huggins also picked up an RBI with a well placed sacrifice. For the Bandits, Nick Jacques was the starter on

In other opening round playoff games the Mud Hens topped the Sand Gnats, 3-2, and the Rock Hounds outlasted the Sea Dogs despite Tom Tierney’s sixth-inning leadoff home run, 7-4. Come out to support the league and catch some great baseball. All Majors games are played at Greeley Field in Hudson.

CHS Spring Sports Awards Filled with Accolades and Goodbyes

by Zack Miller Sports awards ceremonies are a time for reflection on the seasons recently concluded, and in case of baseball, softball and track, seasons that are still in progress. Each team recognizes most improved players and also gives out coaches’ awards, while celebrating other milestones that are accomplished over the course of the season. The Campbell Baseball team learned that five of their players were selected to All-State teams, the most in Division III. Bob Baril and Austin Baker were both selected to the Second Team, while Kyle Shaw, Ryan Glendye and Zach Byers were all selected to the First Team. Shaw led the team in hitting, batting a whopping .520 on the

year, while Glendye got it done on the mound, pitching his way to a 7-0 record. While the accolades were a nice testament to each sport’s season, the goodbyes will bring change to Campbell that hasn’t been felt in some years. Coach Kevin Hodge and Coach Kelly Fraser, CHS Track coaches, will both be retiring from coaching following the conclusion of the track season. Under their leadership multiple state championships and school records were added to Campbell’s sports success. Campbell will also be looking to replace the athletic director, as John Patterson has also resigned. “I’m a football coach,” Patterson said. “I’ll be returning to my roots. I’ve done my best at this job the
