Rail Trail Group Poised for Trail Work to East Andover


The Friends of the Northern Rail Trail (Merrimack County) is waiting for the final contract from the state to begin trail work from Switch Road to Highland Lake.  A grader, vibratory roller, and labor is being donated thanks to Peter Crowell of New London and the group hopes to complete the trail section in September.


The FNRT enjoyed talking to lots of people July 4th on the green as well as August 5th at the Potter Place Fair.  Members informed interested townspeople about plans to extend the trail to East Andover, added new members, and sold tickets for the bicycle raffle.  The winners of the raffle prizes:


Bicycle:  Melissa Cote, Alexandria; Highland Lake Inn weekend: Terrance and Holly Humphrey, Franklin.  Gift Certificates: La Meridiana: Kathi Yusko, Andover; RP Johnsons: Richard Adams, Andover; Main St. Garage: Leslie Zajac, Andover; Pizza Chef:  Dick & Taffy Johnson, Franklin; Jake’s:  Paul Buddenhagen, Andover


The next rail trail meeting is Wednesday, September 19th at 7:00 PM in the science room of the AEM School and is open to the public.
