It’s Fathers Day , and it was a beautiful day yesterday for our yard sale, we were so lucky. The new owner of 18 Locust stopped by too! We were happy to move a few things back in that she wanted. Her three children are going to love growing up on Locust.
Too bad for us she did not want the gift of a plastic boat.
Let me know if you do.
I read Friday in the ENL that the fellow that bought and rehabilitated the Loaf stated , “no tenant till the dam is removed”.
I made a few phone calls, and have two more calls to make Monday.
It will be possible for me however to write about my unease over this news this weekend. It seems despite the story about the Loaf, that many like me have been wondering for some time.
When is the Great? Dam coming down?
Why has there not more discussion and planning for this momentous event due this Fall?
What exactly is the FOCUS of the BOS and Town Government?

I had the great pleasure of visiting Mrs Tardiff when I screened the Squamscott River Film at the Rockingham Nursing Home for her and a full room of residents.
Kyle and I both read her book “Exeter-Squamscott, A River of Many Uses” prior to filming the Squamscott River movie. I remember her being a hot ticket that day but of course she was only 94 that year.

Well done. Now let’s get the party planning underway.
We used this lovely song written by Bill Staines a NH native from Dover, to close out the Squamscott River movie. I do have not much left to say to the Community on dam removal and restoration of the watershed. There will be a final opportunity this weekend at Town Hall to ask questions.
I don’t have any questions.
Join us as we do the good thing, the smart thing, the right thing.
Vote yes on dam removal.
Bob Moore one of our collaborators on the Squamscott River Film has had a volume of his poetry published. I will often simply click on the film minimize the screen and listen to his artful guitar work. I can still see every image I assure you. We were so lucky to have his participation in that project.I imagine his poetry is engaging as well.

Don Clement and I went to the Rockingham County Nursing home yesterday to show the movie. Olive Tardiff who wrote a book on the River was in attendance. It was a fun time. So many comments from former Exeter residents. I have been in just about every Nursing Home & Hospital in New England while working in medical sales. This facility continues to be a brilliant star in that universe.
