Come tour Costa Rica

Elaine and Frank Lasher will offer a photographic trip through Costa Rica beginning at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Draper Room at The Center at Eastman. Free and open to the public.

 

Build a Scarecrow

It’s time to build scarecrows beginning at 3:15 p.m. Thursday at the new town park on Shedd Road. Our Town provides all the supplies for these scarecrows that will be used to decorate Grantham along Route 10. Children must be accompanied by an adult… no drop offs, please. It will be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.  For more information, contact the Grantham Activities Department at 863-9143 or field83@comcast.net.

 

Trivia at Bistro Nouveau postponed

Bistro Nouveau’s scheduled trivia night has been postponed for this week. The rescheduled date will be announced shortly.

 

Nature program needs volunteers

Grantham Village School needs volunteers for its Four Winds Nature Science Program. Four Winds is a hands-on nature science program designed to get children outside and understand the natural world around them. Volunteers are needed in kindergarten through fifth grade. The time commitment is about five and a half hours a month: two hours for monthly workshop, an hour to an hour and a half for time in the classroom, and the rest for prep time. This year the program is focusing on insect anatomy; grasses and grains; predators and prey; skulls and diet; bird bodies; owls; plant and animal defenses; and beavers and muskrats.

The next workshop (grasses and grains) is Oct. 2 at Grantham Town Hall (lower level) from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. If interested, contact Sally Caffrey 863-6523 or sallyc154@yahoo.com.

 

Grantham’s Walking Bridge

The official opening ceremony for the walking bridge between the fire station and Grantham Village School will be held at 8:35 p.m. Sept. 29. This is a huge accomplishment that has been many years in the making. Come see the finished product!

Park at town hall and walk over or park at the school so the fire station parking lot doesn’t get filled up in case of an emergency.

 

Plan WAY ahead

It might sound crazy but Thanksgiving is only 2 1/2 months away, and Sunapee Recreation doesn’t want you to miss this event.

Last year, 275 walkers/runners began a wonderful family tradition of starting the holiday morning together enjoying Burkehaven Hill and Lake Ave in Sunapee. The goal for this year is to have 400 walkers join the fun. There is a free long-sleeve shirt for those who register early.

New for this second event is a kids’ 1K fun run called the “Chicken Run” and a team competition with school sport teams competing for best team results. Register online at www.sunapeeturkeytrot.com. Address questions to Sunapee Recreation Director Scott Blewitt at recreation@town.sunapee.nh.us.

Silver Sponsors are McKenney Construction and New London Hospital; Bronze Sponsors are Lake Sunapee Bank, Sugar River Bank and Gary Summerton Photography.

 

UVLSRPC appointment

Selectmen have appointed Thain Allan as the town’s representative to the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission.
