On July 11th, with funds received from a Gratuity Grant from the Elks National Foundation, (ENF), our Lodge purchased 22 bicycles and helmets to give to local children. Working with a local school and in conjunction with our Copper Cannon project, we provided a lunch for the kids and family members as well having Officer Preve from Epsom PD do a bicycle safety course. It was a huge success.

On Monday, August 3, the Epsom Public Library will be presenting “The Dantes”  as part of the Adult Summer Reading Program.  Since 1965, local musicians Stan Arthur from Loudon on guitar and Don Duncklee from Epsom on the stand-up bass, have developed a play list of an eclectic variety of their favorite songs from the 50s through today, including some gospel, Irish, blues, and acoustic rock and roll.  This program is open to the public, an opportunity for some toe tapping. 

 

Epsom Public Library’s Adult Summer Reading Program concludes with the program,  “MOMENTS IN THE WILD” on Tuesday, August 11 at 7:00 PM.  Photographer and naturalist Rick Libbey has many years of experience in photographing wild animals and he is knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. According to his website, Rick took a wilderness trip in 1981 and became fascinated with moose.  He started a journal of each moose encounter and as of 2014 has logged over 3100 different encounters with moose, hence his nickname, Mooseman.  His photography collection includes shots of loons, bears and bald eagles.  You will be awed by his pictures and entertained by his stories.  Please join us and meet Mooseman.

More Thank Yous From Epsom Gardens

Submitted By Nancy Heath

Master Gardener Advisor, UNH Cooperative Extension

 

Every time I see the Girl Scout Garden, I think of a song from Broadway musical Oklahoma. Remember “June is busting out all over... ?” I have heard countless comments regarding their gardens. Similarly, comments most often made are to the ‘tune’ of  “girl scout garden is busting out all over!”

 

I want to add my thanks to all those who contributed materials & services: Chris & Heather Bowes and Steve & Kat Hall for donating lumber; Kenny Brown for his loader to fill raised beds; K&K Landscape Supplies for garden soil; Pleasant View Gardens for seedlings. 

 

I can’t imagine anybody being disappointed regarding their donations! The Scouts are harvesting the gardens twice a week now and giving harvest to Epsom Food Pantry. YOU GO GIRLS!
