ROUND ROBIN HOLIDAY TOUR

From the Issue: 
November 2010
This season, pull yourself away from the impersonal, flickering pulse of your computer screen and head away from the grating neon lights and crowds of the “big box” stores.  Instead, explore a little store right around the corner.  Who knows?  You may actually enjoy your holiday shopping.
   
From 10 AM to 6 PM November 11 through 14, five local business are hosting the 23rd  annual Round Robin Holiday Tour.  This event is free and is designed to give holiday shoppers a chance to experience local shopping.     Mary Ellen’s and Webb Hill Farm of Fitzwilliam, Homeward Designs Cottage Style of Rindge, The Vintage Rose Boutique & Botanicals of Jaffrey, and Harvest Thyme Herbs of Dublin are all excited to be participating this year.
   
Enjoy free refreshments, free gifts, and when you’ve finished the tour you could enter to win one of 10 holiday themed gifts.

ROADSIDE CLEAN-UP DAY! SATURDAY - OCTOBER 16

From the Issue: 
October 2010
It’s time for Troy Roadside Clean-Up Day, our Fall Pick-Up Campaign, with the familiar Blue Bags!  Plan to join in on Saturday, October 16.
   
Lynn Estep-Goodridge, member of the Troy Conservation Commission, has again taken on the challenge of coordinating this event, in cooperation with Jim Dicey.  The blue bags are available at the Transfer Station, for individuals, groups, and neighborhood organizations.  If every neighborhood got together and took care of their street, the job would be that much easier!
   
For further information on getting Blue Bags, please call Lynn at 242-7776.  Full bags can be left on the side of the road for pick-up by state road crews.  If any bags aren’t picked up, either let Jim Dicey know, or bring them in to the Transfer Station.  Every single Blue Bag collected makes a difference, making Troy a better, cleaner town for all of us!

OLD HOME DAYS

From the Issue: 
September 2010
Whether you came to one or all of the events or activities of Troy Old Home Days in July, hopefully you enjoyed yourself.  Our local business community was very generous in supporting Troy Old Home day events again this year.  When Carrie Mattson solicited contributions to support buying the t-shirts, caps, softballs, water & trophy for Thursday’s game there were additional funds to help offset the rest of the weekend activities.  Thank you to J&J Auto Body (Jay & Jody), Baile McBreens (Pete & Elsie), Troy Auto Parts (Joe), TD Bank (Phaedra and Celia), Chris  Lutheran Church's Community Breakfast, Minute Mart (Frank).  Some of neighbors also were generous with donations The Frank Massin Agency Inc. Charlie Massin, Fitzwilliam, NH and The Herb Barn, Mary Taylor, Richmond, NH.

ROAD RACE IN 2011?

From the Issue: 
September 2010
Too few put their best foot forward July 24 for the running of the 2nd Annual Tortoise and Hare 5K Road Race on Old Home Day.  Race officials outnumbered the runners.  So, do we modify the 3rd Annual race year to encourage the lesser fleet footed and shorten the course or make Fun the goal instead of beating the clock?  A relay with wheel barrows, crazy attire, partners, cheering section, spiked water, or what?  Better advertising, can't refuse awards, roses, Pot of Gold?  Finish the expression, " --------and they'll come." .

Mr. Flash and Ms. Hot-On-His- Heels beat this race official to a possible wrong turn.  I could only yell, "South Main" as they cruised by.  Word has it that two other towns enticed our would-be runners on the 24th and we have to wonder what the bait was.

PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT

From the Issue: 
September 2010
An exhibit of the photography of Warren S. Hall, Jr. and Nancy Carney is being held at the Fitzwilliam Library through October 9th.  Warren started taking photos as a boy with his Brownie camera and went on to become a professional photographer.  He established Wolfspirit Photo in 1969.  Love of the outdoors is reflected in his concentration on scenic and wildlife photography, taken almost entirely in New Hampshire.  His photos have been seen at Eastern Mountain Sports and featured in Backpacker Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, United States Forest Service publications, Outside Magazine, as well as numerous calendars.  His work has been exhibited throughout the state for the past forty years.  

Nancy joined Wolfspirit Photo in 2006.  She especially enjoys photographing wild birds, insects and small wildlife.  Her photos are taken in the Monadnock region, mostly in Fitzwilliam.  Warren’s and Nancy’s work has been exhibited recently at Peterborough Camera. 

OLD HOME DAY ROAD RACE

From the Issue: 
July/August 2010
The Second Annual Tortoise and Hare 5 k (3 mile) road race will be run July 24 at 8 AM.  This will be an in-town race conducted only on Town and State roads.  There will be no use of the railroad bed.

Registration for the road race will begin at 7 AM at the Depot and printed Tee shirts will be presented to the first 25 who register.  Water will be made available at least one race progress point and light refreshments will be available for the runners/walkers at the finish.  Until such time as race participants reach a high enough number there are no age limits or race distinctions.  Fun and Games might be the intent this second year with more attention paid to age groups and specific timing as the need arises.  Watch for posted route maps prior to the race.  Spectators should feel free to encourage the runners from front lawns and door steps.
