Board halts sale
of park land

NORTH HAVERHILL—The Haverhill Selectboard covered a myriad of issues from industrial park land to heating and ventilation at the town offices to a review of a land survey bid at its meeting on Monday night.
The board decided to refer an issue involving the sale of a lot in the business park off Route 116 in North Haverhill to the town’s attorney for an opinion. At its last meeting on June 25, the board voted to sell a parcel in the park to the owners of Superior Foam, Russ and Michelle Haney, who own an adjacent parcel.
Selectman Darwin Clogston, who was not present on June 25, questioned the sale at Monday night’s meeting saying the board may have violated the covenants that govern the sale and use of the business park.

Corinth readies for

CORINTH—For the second time this year and the fourth time in the last four years, Corinth will vote on whether the town should construct a new fire station.
On July 24, residents will go to the polls to vote by Australian ballot on an $850,000, 20-year bond. The selectboard has scheduled an informational meeting on July 17 at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall in Cookeville for residents to find out more about the plan.
In May, 278 people voted by Australian ballot on the bond article to support construction of a new fire station on Fairground Road. There were 166 votes to approve the measure and 112 votes against the bond article.

Scores gather for alumni bash

WOODSVILLE—“History matters to me,” 1963 Woodsville High School graduate Ann Amadon said at the July 7 all-class reunion that she helped organize. All the way from Canada.
Just over 120 WHS graduates attended the event, which was held in a building owned by Scott and Betty Mitchell located on Main Street in Woodsville. Some recalled that the building was once home to Hovey’s Department store, while younger generations know it as the former home of Hubert’s Family Outfitters.
“This is why I do it,” Amadon said, pointing out a best friend she’s known since the 5th grade. “It’s worth it when people come.”

Quilt captures family history

BRADFORD —In the 19th century, the Silloway family spread from its roots in Bradford to other parts of the state and, eventually, the country. On Friday, Anne Silloway, David Silloway, Karen Mantooth, and Earle Ellingwood returned to the family’s first home in Vermont to donate an heirloom to the Bradford Historical Society that documents the family’s diaspora.
The gift, a handsewn quilt, bears the names of over 50 family members, including Atkins, Shepherd, Egan, Clogston, and Child, alongside the Silloways themselves.
The individual squares were all sewn at around the same time in the late 1890s. The last was made after Floyd Silloway was born in 1898, said Anne during last week’s presentation at the Bradford Historical Society museum at the Bradford Academy building.
