Lovell's Busy, Busy Saturday August 18th

Prior to the 9 am opening of the 37th Annual Arts and Artisans Fair, many volunteers are busy unloading artists' cars as they pull up to the New Suncook School. And throughout the day, many people are working hard to keep things running smoothly at this popular Fair that benefits the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library and has something for everyone. More than 50 artisans will be present and there will be artist demonstrations as well as a Book Sale, homemade refreshments and a raffle where you have a chance to win one of ten artist-donated prizes. Stop by the New Suncook School on Route 5 in Lovell between 9 - 3.

Later in the afternoon, from 4-7, is the always crowded Chicken BBQ Benefit Dinner held by the Lovell Fire Department. Where else can you get 1/2 chicken, fresh corn, potato salad, cole slaw, roll and dessert for just $8.50? Stop by the Center Lovell Fire House to eat-in or take home! Show your support for the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department!

And to top off the day, it is Rondi's Birthday and our 28th wedding anniversary!

2012 Tour de Lovell

What better way to spend a summer Saturday than to ride 20 miles through Lovell? You get a chance to cruise through town as well the opportunity to enjoy the mountain views and ride fast down the hills (I won't mention that you have to first ride up the hills!).

Saturday, August 11th, is the date for the Seventh Annual Tour de Lovell. The course starts at the New Suncook School, winds its way along Route 5 and Route 5A to the turnaround and finishes back at the school. There are Performance and Mountain Categories as well as age group awards. A 4-Mile Out and Back Course for kids starts two minutes after the adults. Lots of refreshments for all riders and the first 75 registered adult riders and first 20 youth registrants receive a t-shirt.

This event serves as a fundraiser for both the Lovell Recreation Department and the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. Click here for a copy of the brochure and visit BikeReg.com to register on-line.

12th Annual TASTE OF LOVELL

It doesn't take too long to realize that the town of Lovell is populated with exceptional cooks and bakers. And the best place to see, and taste, the goodies on full display is this Sunday, February 12th, at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library from 2-4 pm.

Every winter, this special event raises funds for the Library's programs. But it is also a fun afternoon with tables and chairs provided to enjoy your treats while you chat with friends or listen to the music of Davy Sturtevant. Or you can put together a "to go" plate to enjoy at home. Prices are $5 for five treats or $8 for ten!

While the emphasis is on chocolate, there are plenty of appetizers and fruits to enjoy as well. If you would like to contribute your favorite treat and compete for a special prize, call the Library at 207-925-3177.
