Antique Appraisal Day is This Saturday Oct. 3

Attention Antique Road Show Fans! The Croydon Historical Society presents its Annual Antique and Collectible Appraisal Day on Saturday, October 3 from 10 am to 3 pm in the Croydon Town Hall. Gather up your family heirlooms, yard sale finds or perhaps even that white elephant you always wondered about and come on in for the fun and food. As always, professional appraisers are on hand for this event. One item appraised for $5.00 or three items for $10.00. For more Information, call Cynthia Phillips at 863-1119  


Irreplaceable Bert Smith

The Board of Selectman swore in Steve Michel on Monday, September 27, 2009 as a member on the board for Trustees of the Trust Funds and Cemeteries. He is fulfilling the remainder of Bert Smith’s term that expires in 2012. Welcome aboard Steve. 

The Executive Board of Croydon Historical is meeting on Friday, October 2, at 7:00 p.m. to determine a replacement for its treasurer Bert Smith.

Filling the positions left opened by Bert Smith’s passing is easy, compared to filling the void he left in our community. So many people have expressed the loss they feel on a personal level. He is missed.


Veteran’s Dinner

The Croydon Historical Society, Board of Selectmen, Congregational Church, Croydon Volunteer Fire Department, and the Women’s Auxiliary are planning a potluck supper on November 14 at 4 pm to recognize and thank all of Croydon’s Veterans for their military service. Known veterans will receive invitations, and the Croydon Historical Society are mailing requests for information to identify other residents who served in the military.  

 K9 Search and Rescue Training

When Chief of Police Richard Lee attended a training class of K9 Search and Rescue on Saturday, September 27, 2009, little did he know he would meet up with the group later in the day. 

Lee went to Camp Coniston to attend the training on his own accord. He discovered the dogs were amazing. Lee was impressed that the canines could find someone who was 20 feet underwater. “You can see this stuff on TV and in the movies, but when you see the dogs perform in person, it is unbelievable.”  

What was unbelievable was that he had a chance to see the dogs in action on Saturday evening, since K9 Search and Rescue brought three of their dogs, a Golden Retriever, German shepherd, and a Blood Hound to search for the woman who was missing near Fletcher Road.  

K9 Search and Rescue is a volunteer organization that trains throughout the year. The group, made up of volunteers from NH and VT, helps in search and rescues for NH Fish and Game and Police Departments throughout the state. 



Croydon Students who attend Newport Schools must have their School Admittance Certificate filled out and submitted with two acceptable proofs of residency to their school administration by October 6. Anyone not submitting the certificate with two forms of acceptable ID will have the police verify their address. Students with unverifiable addresses will not be admitted to attend school.

Historical Society Meets Saturday, October 10 at 10:30 am in the Town Hall.
