almost anyone, anywhere. So let’s all get together and
encourage our children to get on a healthy track and “get walking”.

Watershed Starts 2009 Season
Northwood Lake Watershed Association
President, Jim Vaillancourt, outlined plans for the 2009 season at
the May meeting.
June will be a busy month with the following
activities: Saturday, June 13, there will be a session with Amy
Smagula of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Sciences to
instruct attendees on the Weed Watcher program. The training session
will be held at the Boy Scout Camp. June 19 will be the season’s
first neighborhood meeting of the Watershed Association. Also, a
June event will be held to review the milfoil situation. We will
locate areas with milfoil and determine the effect of last year’s
milfoil treatment and this winter’s drawdown of the lake.
more information on June events, visit the Watershed’s website.
Doug Chamberlin, Lake Host Coordinator, said the Lake Host Program
can always use more volunteers. Lake Hosts inspect incoming and
outgoing boats at the town launch for exotic weeds. To sign up for

Northwood Transfer Station/Recycling Center
Spring cleaning is in
full swing and many residents will soon be clearing out items no
longer needed or useful. When planning your trip to the transfer
station, it helps to sort and separate items for recycling and
disposal. A brochure which lists all the information about the
transfer station is available at the town hall during regular
business hours. There is also a list of items that are recycled and
related fees on the town website:
You will also find directions to the facility, hours of operation,
and rules and regulations. Admittance to the recycling center is by
permit only, available at the Town Clerk’s office during her regular
business hours. You will need to bring proof of residency with you.
With many people opening up their camps on the upcoming holiday
weekend, it is easy to get ready for a trip to the transfer station
on Monday and not remember that it is a holiday for everyone. The
transfer station is closed on Monday, May 25 so that the employees
may enjoy the holiday with their families. Please plan accordingly.
The recycling committee strives to improve waste management
through recycling and other processes and welcomes any ideas and
input from Northwood residents. The committee meets on the first
Monday of the month at 7 pm at the town hall and meetings are open
to the public.
