Labor Day Weekend & Stoneham Rescue Breakfast

Labor Day marks the traditional but unofficial end of summer. School has started so families have headed back home. The town slows down a little but this weekend begins my favorite time of year. Temperatures are cooler but you can still swim in the lake. The bugs are gone so going for a hike is a real pleasure. And the Fryeburg Fair is right around the corner!

I recommend highly one local Labor Day tradition--the Stoneham Rescue Service Breakfast. This Sunday, August 31st, from 7-10 am. Wonderful pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, donuts, oj and fresh coffee. All for $5.00! All proceeds benefit the Rescue Service. Butters Hill Road, just off Route 5.

      August 16th, 2014--Lovell's Super Saturday!

      2014 Arts & Artisans Fair 449This Saturday, August 16th, are two anticipated events that are always well attended and raise significant funds for their respective organizations.

      First up in the morning is the 39th Annual Arts & Artisans Fair that benefits the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. Starting at 9 am and continuing until 3 pm, this juried show has over 50 artisans spread inside and out the New Suncook School on Route 5. There will also be demonstrations, an always popular book sale, raffles and homemade refreshments. Come on out to see the talents of many local artists and craftsmen.

      DSCF9008After a day at the Arts Fair or just tired from a great afternoon swimming and boating on the lake, have dinner at the Center Lovell Firehouse from 4-7 pm.  The food is always good and plentiful and proceeds benefit the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department. For just $9 you will have 1/2 chicken, freshly picked corn on the cob, delicious side dishes and ice cream treats. Be sure to come early as last year the kitchen ran out of chicken!

        Fox & Sons, Part Two

        IMG_1711IMG_1710IMG_1707IMG_1708IMG_1709Although there were weeks of site preparation and the pouring of the new foundation and there is still plenty of finishing work to be done, the actual lifting and moving of the structure took a little more than a week. I must say, Mighty Impressive! And it won't be long before it will look like the house is in the original spot.

        2014 Tour de Lovell


        It is time to get your bikes ready! This Saturday is the 9th Annual Tour de Lovell. The race starts at 8 am at the New Suncook Elementary School on Route 5.

        Two changes for 2014: The course has been extended from 20 miles to 21.3 and there will be rolling start. As always, there will be raffle prizes, t-shirts, food/refreshments, awards and fun.

        The Tour de Lovell benefits the Lovell Recreation Department and the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department.

        Remember, if you are not riding, please be careful of the bike riders!

        Fox & Sons

        Whenever I see a 'Fox & Sons' sign in a yard, it is always difficult for me not to stop and become a sidewalk superintendent. It is fascinating to see a built house lifted from its existing foundation and moved to another foundation without falling apart. Almost as delicate as Phillippe-Petit walking on a tightrope between the Twin Towers in NYC (video here).

        This house is located on Route 5 in Lovell across from the golf course.
