Northwood NH News

May 3, 2017




To all of you packrats,
Hopefully this missive catches you spring cleaning and wondering what to do with stuff you don’t want or need but that’s too good to be thrown away. Think Bean Hole Bash 2017, please. It is not that far away, July 28th and 29th. We are going to hold another auction on Friday night. Last year’s auction was a wonderful success thanks to so many of your wonderful donations. Not only did we make a substantial amount of money to put back into the community in a meaningful way, but we had fun doing it.


There are many new plans in the works, a pie baking contest (peach please), an ugly contest (not me), a pie eating contest (peach please), bottle flipping (???), a yard sale, and a bike parade. We would love to have your input.


But most of all we want your good junk. We’ll care for it and make sure to find it a new warm cozy home. Call me, 303-5224 and my daughter and I will come pick it up.


Awesome beans.


Thank you,
Tim Jandebeur

This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:
1938’s “The Lady Vanishes”


Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (May 5 & 6) for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of 1938’s early Hitchcock thriller “The Lady Vanishes,” starring Margaret Lockwood, Michael Redgrave and Dame May Whitty.


In “The Lady Vanishes,” we meet young Iris Henderson (Lockwood), vacationing in Europe and traveling back to England via train. She and her fellow passengers, an interesting and mysterious group of people including a young musicologist named Gilbert (Redgrave), are delayed by an avalanche and must spend the night at a local inn. In doing so, Iris befriends an elderly woman named Miss Froy (Whitty). The next morning, while assisting Miss Froy with her luggage, Iris receives a blow to her head. Miss Froy helps her on the train, where they share tea and lovely conversation. Iris falls asleep across the compartment from her new friend, but when she awakes, Miss Froy has disappeared – and her fellow passengers claim that no such person ever existed! Was she a figment of Iris’s imagination? A result of her blow to the head? No one on the train will take her seriously or help her look except for Gilbert, and even he, while becoming smitten with the lovely Iris, has his doubts.


“The Lady Vanishes” was Alfred Hitchcock’s last film shot in Great Britain before he made his move to the United States. It was triumph with critics and movie audiences alike, and was in fact the most successful British film of its time. Upon its release in the U.S., it received the New York Film Critics Award for Best Director and was named one of the ten Best Pictures of 1938 by the New York Times, whose critic Frank S. Nugent wrote, “If it were not so brilliant a melodrama, we should class it as a brilliant comedy.”  Most film critics consider it to be the best of Hitch’s early (pre-1940) films. It was a favorite of many directors, including Orson Welles, Peter Bogdanovich and Francois Truffaut, and is included in the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die by Steven Schneider. Be sure to watch for Hitch’s trademark cameo appearance; hint, it’s near the end, in the Victoria train station. No wonder this is a must-see! Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this glorious thriller from the past.





I would like to thank the residents of Deerfield and Northwood for voting in favor of the additional funding for the Prevention of Aquatic Invasive Species for some of the lakes in Deerfield and Northwood.  Pleasant Lake will now be able to expand coverage at the boat launch. 


Anyone wishing to volunteer either to get community service hours (needed in some cases to graduate) or to become more familiar with the Lake Host Program are welcome.  We will also be hiring a few more paid Lake Hosts.  Paid Lake Hosts will be working 10 – 15 hours per week.  Training will be provided for both paid and volunteer positions.  If you like to spend time outside in the summer months you may really like to work as a Lake Host.  Lake Hosts conduct courtesy boat and trailer inspections, a brief boater survey, educate boaters about the aquatic invasive species (plants and animals), and teach boaters the “CLEAN, DRAIN, AND DRY” method of preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species.  It is so important to help in keeping these aquatic invasive species from spreading through out NH Lakes.  Volunteer shifts are usually 2-hours per week, early mornings, afternoons and early evenings.  We will be starting May 25.  If you are interested please contact Holly at: 603-463-7496 or email:  Thank you again for your support.

The Road Not Taken
Artistic Interpretations of the Poetry of Robert Frost


The Road Not Taken, a fine art exhibit inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost, comes to the Chelsey Memorial Library, in Northwood NH for May and June 2017.


The Road Not Taken, a fine art exhibit inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost, is making the rounds of libraries and nature centers throughout the state of New Hampshire.  The presentation, designed by three Derry artists, Ingeborg V. Seaboyer, Judy Krassowski and Corinne Dodge, features approximately 30 works that reflect a variety of personal interpretations of the most famous as well as some of the “less traveled” works of one of America’s most inspiring poets, Robert Frost.


Images in pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics and oils are accompanied by a selected verse that inspired each individual work. An exhibit reference book provides additional information on the artists as well as upcoming exhibit venues.


Originally the exhibit was created to support the grand re-opening of the Derry Public Library, Derry NH, in September, 2011.  Since that time, the exhibit has been touring libraries and community venues in southern New Hampshire.  Additional scheduling is underway to present The Road Not Taken, with a goal of reaching all of the public libraries in the state.
