Hampshire Lakes Association Thanks NLWA
The New Hampshire Lakes
Association thanked the Northwood Lake Watershed Association Lake
Host Program in the following communication.
your lake participated in the Lake Host Program this year. The Lake
Host Program is funded through the DES and Federal grants. The
program was developed in 2002 by NH LAKES and NHDES to educate and
prevent boaters from spreading exotic aquatic plants to lakes and
ponds in New Hampshire. Since then, the number of participating
lakes and ponds and volunteers has doubled, the number o boats
inspected has tripled, and the number of “saves” (exotic plants
discovered) has increased from four in 2002 to a total of 224 in
The program is invaluable in educating boaters and
protecting NH’s waterbodies from aquatic plant infestations, thereby
preventing recreational hazards, property value decline, aquatic
ecosystem decline, aesthetic issues, and saving costly remediation
efforts. Lake Host staff made three “saves” at your lake and
discovered the following aquatic vegetation entering or leaving your
lake in 2008.

Great work! We encourage volunteers to continue participating in the
Lake Host Program to protect the future of your lake.”

The Got Books? Donation book bin has been moved to the
parking lot of Northwood Diner. All proceeds earned from this
fundraising program are used to purchase new books for the Northwood
People are encouraged to place their used books
into the bin. When the bin is full, we call the Got Books? Company
and they come to empty it out. The books are sorted and recycled
through a variety of outlets. Some are donated to military families,
other books are placed with charitable organizations, and some are
sold at two used books stores managed by the Got Books? Program. The
Northwood School Library is paid by the pound for all the books
recycled in the program. We have been receiving a check a month and
it has helped us keep new books on the shelves.
Oxnard’s grade 8 students visited the library recently, I was
thrilled to be able to show them many new titles that are current
bestsellers. This program helped us buy the 2009 Newbery Medal
winner, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, as well many others.
Materials acceptable for the book bin include adult hardcovers and
paperbacks, children’s books, audio books, videos, and DVD’s.
Encyclopedias, magazines, and catalogs are not accepted.
the next few months, when you’re finished with a book, please think
about donating it for further use. Your help is appreciated. I would
like to express my appreciation to the owner of Northwood Diner, Mr.
Bob Clark for being willing to host the book bin at the Northwood

Lake Women’s Club Promotes Awareness Of Domestic Violence
If you were traveling along Rts. 4, 202 or 43 last week and saw
purple t-shirts hanging from a clothesline at the municipal parking
lot and wondered why, the answer is awareness. A group of ladies
from the Harvey Lake Womens Club hung the three shirts, each with
one word, to bring awareness to the problem of domestic violence.
Domestic violence awareness was selected as the signature project of
the General Federation of Women’s Club International at their
conference in Chicago in 2008. The t-shirts with their single
words are the visual reminder that harm to women within their homes
or families must end. In a concerted effort with GFWC, the Harvey
Lake Club is promoting awareness and participating in fundraising
for needed expansion of shelters and counseling programs. To date,
over 16 million dollars has been raised through this project.
Members of the Harvey Lake Women’s Club who participated at the site
to hang the shirts were: Ann Kelley, Charlotte Klaubert, Elaine
Covey, Lucy Silva, Marie Bapple, Ginny Rogers and Joann Bailey.
