      Don't Forget: Trash Pickup Is on Saturday

      Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Sandi Pierson reminds us that because of the holiday, trash collection gets pushed back a day. She also reminds us that it's rifle season through December 6. Wear blaze in the woods. 

      And she sent us the approved Select Board minutes of November 11. You'll find them here.


      Memories of a Civil War Vet

      Dick Coffin sent us this note on Orange history:

      My late Grandmother, Bertha Lurvey Stewart was born in Orange, NH, in 1884, I learned today. She was one of four girls. Her father (my great-grandfather), James Marion Lurvey (1848-1951), was among the last surviving Union soldiers from the Battle of Gettysburg. When I was a youngster, he and my great-grandmother lived in Goffs Falls, NH.

      Thanksgiving dinners at my Grandparents' were always mighty special, I recall.

      Wishing everyone in Orange a very Happy Thanksgiving!


      Industrial Wind and Habitat

      Sandi sent us this report by the Vermont group Peak Keepers. While it's not a scientific publication, it contains a lot of useful information. You can read the report here.


      Snow on the Mountain

      Sandi Pierson sent us this picture of the first snow of the season. She took it from the Manning Trail, which comes up from the AMC Lodge. (Click on the thumbnail for the full-size image.)
