All of New England’s 67 highest peaks have now been climbed by this intrepid local duo. Read about their adventures on the cover of September’s Advocate.

We include a few facts about the Jamestown Canyon Virus, which recently claimed a person’s life here in town. Sign up for a free take-out supper from the local church, and visit the Library for all kinds of new offerings.

We have a primary election on September 7, and a general election on October 26 — all precautions will be in effect. The 49th annual Gas Engine Meet is September 10-12, don’t miss it! The village church’s regularly scheduled biannual yard and rummage sale will again be held September 24 & 25; and Arts Alive! is offering mini-grants for artists.

Read the report from our school board rep about the opening of schools with an indoor mask mandate, and the Players’ last play is here, Where You Are.

Of course, school starts the last day of August and many cannot wait; and see photos from the Historical Society’s 100-year celebration — one that was forced to delay a year because of COVID.

We roll out the welcome mat to 40 new families in town based on number of houses sold over the last 18 months, and begin with an explanation of procedures at the Transfer Station.

The Mill in the town right next to us, which has an abundant history of textile manufacturing, is back in business spinning wool by using its water power to do so; we all anticipate another season of hawkwatching; we can help raise funds in the Walk for Animals; caregivers can get some respite in an adult day program that is reopening; and we can all help end hunger in our local schoolchildren with donations of food sought, like nutrition bars.

The MFS offers quality mental healthcare and Monadnock Conservancy celebrates its 32nd anniversary. Photos of life on the lake in all forms grace the back pages, with thanks to someone who lives there.
