Community Support Requested For Rescue Boat Motor

Northwood Fire-Rescue Association will be having a boot drive November 7 from 10-2 at the park and ride located at the corner of Route 4 and 202 across from the library.
Donations will help defray the cost of an outboard motor for the rescue boat purchased with a generous anonymous donation.

The special design has two inflatable pontoons made of a material allowing the use on ice as well as on the water and is easily carried by 4 persons. The flat deck has sufficient room to carry an injured patient on a backboard, necessary medical equipment and personnel. In testing we found the boat to be extremely stable, maneuverable and the ability to rescue a person from the water quicker and easier than a regular boat.

Please join us on November 7 and see the boat.  Donations can be mailed to Northwood Fire-Rescue Association, 499 1st NH Turnpike, Northwood, NH 03261.



Else Cilley Chapter D.A.R.
Submitted By Margaret Franz

New Citizens L to R: Bill and Ruth Armitage and Justine Ross, all from Nottingham, NH.

The regular meeting of the Else Cilley Chapter D.A.R. was held on September 19th at the Historic Nottingham Square Schoolhouse.

Hostesses were Ann Chaplin, Susann Chaplin, JoAnn Brown and Peg Franz.

Guests were Joyce Liebl, daughter of Past Regent, Barbara Frangione, and soon to be a member, and Sue Barnham, Regent of the First Resistance Chapter D.A.R. of Barrington, Mass., who became an Associate Member that day.

The program was about this particular Schoolhouse; the founding members of the Chapter, who were all descendants of Else Cilley; and how the Chapter became owners of the Schoolhouse.

In honor of Constitution Week, Norma Perkins set up a display of three constitutions and Regent Jan Gilman and involved her students by helping them make a quilt and handing out bookmarks on the Constitution.

For Project Patriot, Lynne Sweet reported that she found a soldier through the Pease Greeters and sent out the cool ties to the troops. She will bring a list of items to be collected at the November meeting to be sent to Landstuhl in Germany.

The regular business of the Chapter was transacted.

Three friends of Peg Franz became new citizens in early October, and the Chapter voted to present them with American Flags. They were Ruth and Bill Armitage and Justine Ross. This was done on October 11th at the Nottingham Congregational Church where they are members.

The next meeting will be October 24th with lunch at the Portsmouth Tea  Company in Somersworth at 12 noon. Carpooling will be at the Lee Traffic Circle in front of the Pizza Spinners at 11:30 a.m.
