Special Town Meeting

Meetinghouse Lane,  1826 - 1853

The Chapel and Meeting House may have looked like this.

Article #1 - Shall the Town authorize the Board of Selectmen to accept the donation of the New Hampton Grange Hall, and proceed with the relocation and reuse of the building to provide a community focused multi-use building?  There will be no appropriation of funds with this article.
Note: A March 2017 Warrant Article was presented and approved by the New Hampton voters at Town Meeting, which authorized the expenditure of $150,000 to relocate the "Grange Hall" building to return it back to its original location next to the Town House, where it was built in 1826, and to make initial necessary repairs.  The Selectmen were also authorized to accept donations, state or federal grants, or other funds that may become available to offset this appropriation.
Another Warrant Article in the amount of $4,000 was approved with authorization to expend to allow for the evaluation of the building's condition, potential uses and future repair or upgrade costs.  Any further town expenditure above the approved $150,000, would require voter approval.

Data Collection Program Description
 
Permanent Medicine Collection Box Available at the Police Department

If you have unused or expired medications, you now have a way to safely and regularly dispose of them! The New Hampton Police Department is happy to announce the opening of a new permanent medication collection box in the town of New Hampton. The collection box is located in the lobby of the New Hampton Police Department at 24 Intervale Drive.
 

Did you know?? Approximately 70% of those who abuse prescription medications get them from family or friends, often from the medicine cabinet. (SAMHSA, 2006) This permanent medication collection box addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. By taking unused and expired medications out of our community, it significantly reduces the opportunities for misuse and/or abuse.
 
Protect our Groundwater! Flushing medications is NO LONGER recommended! Research shows that certain medications are not thoroughly flushed out during water treatment, and can end up contaminating our groundwater.

The following guidelines apply to the Town of New Hampton Medication Collection Box:
  1. Collection box is accessible Monday & Wednesday 8:00AM to 5:00 PM and Friday 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
  2. ONLY pharmaceutical drugs are to be placed in the box (prescription or over-the-counter medications).
  3. NO needles, syringes, lotions, aerosol cans, inhalers, or lancets will be collected.
  4. This voluntary collection process is FREE and ANONYMOUS.
  5. The collection box is constructed in such a manner and of materials that make it tamper proof.

Any questions regarding the collection box can be directed to any Law Enforcement Officer at the New Hampton Police Department at 603-744-5423.

For more information on safe and secure storage of medications, and for tips on how to talk to your family about prescription drug abuse, please contact Traci Fowler at Partners in Prevention, an initiative of the Lakes Region Partnership for Public Health: www.pipnh.org * 603-528-2145 x1800

 
Recognition for a Life Saved
 
The father of a teenager who was hit by a truck on I-93 in May wrote to New Hampton’s Fire Chief Michael Drake, on behalf of the young man’s family, to thank the Chief and 1st responders for the fantastic job they did saving his son's life. He stated “without your team, my son would have been gone”.  “I was extremely impressed by the professionalism, dedication, and the way my son was taken care at the accident scene.

My son is recuperating at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, in Lebanon. He lost his leg due to complication of his injuries, but most of all, he's alive and with us, because of you, and your team. He's being called the "Miracle Child", he was not given a change to live, but he did. 

Once he recovers, and he is out of the hospital, he has asked me if I can bring him over so he can personally thank you and your team in person.

Again, thank you so much for your dedication, and service. Words along cannot  express my gratitude.”


Upon getting this correspondence Chief Drake recognized his department in an email:
“Another great job done by New Hampton Fire Department personnel with assistance from Ashland Fire who set up the landing zone for DHART. Without the great team work this patient probably would not have survived. In addition I want to thank all of our EMS personnel for the awesome job you provide for our community and the people who travel through it on a daily basis! Keep up the good work.”

This award is for the effort taken to make our town attractive to others with an attractive garden.
 

 
The award for the month of May goes to:
Sue and Bill Vachon
3 Fire House Lane, New Hampton
 
Sue and Bill came New Hampton two years ago. They bought an 1840 house on Fire House Lane which needed a lot of tender loving care.  The house has had a lot of work to the inside and to the outside gardens.  On the corner of the front garden is a huge rhubarb plant. This had belonged to Sue's grandmother and has moved many times as the family moved.  Sue now feels very proud to still have this same plant in her garden.  We thank Sue and Bill for their hard work in making our town more attractive.
