Greeting Troops,

I have been in contact with NH DOT and we are approved to reschedule the highway clean up to this coming week end, June 9th or 10th.

Once again the primary target date will be Saturday at  0900 AM at Webster Park (corner of RT 28 andShort Falls Road) in Epsom.

The rain date will be the following day, Sunday at 0900 AM.

Picnic will follow the clean up.  Commander will bring a grill.  No alcohol allowed in the park.

I hope we have a good turn out as many hands make light work.  We typically complete the detail in less than three hours.

Kindly let me know if you plan on being there and / or need transport.

Take Care and STAY SAFE,

Dave.


From the Commander:

UPDATE (6/1)

After viewing more recent wx reports, the possible window of opportunity appears to be shrinking.  I have attached the Wx report for the Epsom area and decided on the side of caution to POSTPONE the highway cleanup for this week end.  Future date will be announced.

Epsom Wx

After two months of online polling and one member meeting the new header was selected by almost a unanimous vote (of those who voted).

The new image is at the top of the page now. Thank you to E. Rushton Gilbert for creating the image that reflects the post’s vision, mission, and members.

Vote on the New Website Header

Part of the process to bring the website up to date is making it reflect the members and purpose of the Post. I made an attempt to create a header (the pictures at the top of the website). But not being a graphic designer the result was adequate, but not what I envisioned.

So I asked for some help on a forum that I frequent and found E. Rushton Gilbert (his friends call him Eddie, though…). Eddie is a veteran and a police officer so the cause is close to his heart. He is a graphic designer by hobby/trade/education and generously agreed to create a custom header for the Post website. He volunteered to help and produced these magnificent choices without any compensation. Read more about him at the end of the page.

Please take a look at the three options and use the poll at the bottom of the page to vote on your favorite.

The poll is open until March 14th. The winner will be announced via email and promptly and proudly displayed on the Post’s website.
