Join us for a delicious and fun evening! March 8th is the date of the annual Maple Madness evening at East Hill Farm. A tasty meal will be served by the accommodating staff and a talented and engaging local duo known as Rick and the Redhead will perform. The Gap Mtn. Gardeners will host a raffle during the evening with proceeds going to support and expand Town gardens. It really will be Spring before you know it, and we hope to continue to add color and pizzazz to common areas. Please come join us, and buy a chance or two for one of the raffle baskets filled with unique items.
The last few weeks have been very busy on the farm. We had 500 bales of hay delivered; 2 calves, 4 bunnies, and 5 lambs born. We are expecting more lambs as the season continues. The winter weather has provided great cross country ski and snowshoe conditions and the skating rink has been used frequently.

“Perhaps during the Lenten season we should stop praying for others as if we were virtuous enough to do so. Perhaps we should take off our righteous robes just long enough during these 40 days to put ashes on our own heads, to come before God with a new humility that is willing to confess, "Lord, be merciful to me, a sinner." Maybe we should be willing to prostrate ourselves before God and plead, "Lord, in my hand no price I bring; simply to the cross I cling." That might put us in a position to hear God in ways that we have not heard Him in a long time.
Wednesday March 4th is the next Old Home Days meeting at the Library at 7 PM. Come with ideas and thoughts on how you or your group will be involved to make this a truly Troy event.
Current plans include a Gap Mtn Lions chicken barbecue on Friday night, followed by a band concert. Saturday will feature the Westmoreland Town Band, a Steel Drum Band, vendors, craftspeople, food, old fashioned games, and so much more.
Can’t make the meeting but willing to get involved? Call Kathy at 242-7731 or send an email to email@example.com and we’ll forward the info.
Monadnock Habitat for Humanity is planning to build a new house this spring/summer on a recently purchased lot in Troy. MHFH is now open to receive applications from potential families who meet Habitat’s guidelines to partner with us to build and own this new home.
Visible activity at the Troy Mills site has slowed for the winter season. Current tenants come and go as usual, but the work on the interior buildings slated for demolition has been brought to a halt. "Paperwork" activity continues, however, as effort continues toward securing grants and loan support for economic development at the site. The product of this effort will be apparent as commercial spaces open up. The plans for residential development, on the other hand, have been delayed in recognition of the current economic downturn.
