22ND ANNUAL ROUND ROBIN HOLIDAY TOUR

From the Issue: 
November 2009
Many of us lead busy lives and often try going to the “big box” stores to get all of our shopping done in one place, or we try shopping online to have exactly what we need shipped directly to our homes.  Often, these experiences leave us dissatisfied in some way. 
While Internet shopping and “big box” stores have their place in our daily lives, let us not overlook the small businesses located right down the street.  Many of these stores pride themselves on providing an enjoyable shopping experience created in part by having unique items and personable employees who are actually excited to help patrons.  These locally-owned and operated businesses employ our neighbors, donate to local organizations and events, and invest money back into the local economy.  In addition, many of these small businesses enhance local main streets or provide a unique destination while on a leisurely drive down a quiet road.

FITZWILLIAM INN NOTES

From the Issue: 
November 2009
Greetings to the people of Troy from the new owners and staff of The Fitzwilliam Inn.  Innkeepers Scott Nickerson, a contractor and business owner, and Leesa Crocker, a farmer, are excited to embark on the new adventure of re-opening one of the most well-known and beloved inns in New Hampshire.  Managers Jane Goodale, Rachelle Crocker and Zoe Greco grew up together in western Massachusetts and are thrilled to be reunited in their effort to make the tavern a lively community hub as it once was!

We re-opened the bed and breakfast in early September and all is going well.  We hope to have the tavern open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights by early November.  Please join us by the hearth for traditional tavern fare. We will be cooking with local, seasonal foods and will feature a nightly special.

On Thanksgiving we are hosting a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.  The turkeys will be Narragansett Heritage birds raised on our own farm. Everything will be homemade- down to the cranberry sauce!

TIMBER TRAILS HAUNTED HAYRIDE

From the Issue: 
October 2009
Prepare to be scared on October 30 and 31, and again on November 6 and 7 as Timber Trails Equine Center located at 237 Mackey Road. in Troy, presents its third annual haunted hayride.  Timber Trails will be offering a wagon-pulled hayride through their haunted trails, offering guests an opportunity to see for themselves what the “ghost hunters” at the Conscious Spirit Paranormal Group have found in their woods.

Each year Timber Trails holds a haunted hayride staffed by friends and family members, and each year it gets bigger and better.  Not only is it fun for the entire family but it is affordable at $5 per adult, $3 for ages 15 and under, and a maximum cost of $15 per family.  The staff at Timber Trails does ask that nobody under the age of 10 rides without an adult present.
