Beach Day News

7 July 2022

Hello LRP-ers,

Two things.

Well, the response to my Beach Survey has been overwhelming. Four people.

The message I got is that there is not enough interest in Beach Day this year to justify the work o=t would take to set up everything. Maybe next year.

So, no Beach Day on July 16th. Instead we’ll do our regular meetup.

Regarding our meet-up, Deb & I scoped out Hong Kong Buffet last Saturday. It was adequate. I asked about using the back room and that appears to be OK. (She remembered that some of us had side arms!)

Thus, starting on July 16th, we’ll go back to meeting at the Hong Kong Buffet in Belmont, in the side room, starting at noon.

That’s all for now.

As always, I’m open to feedback.

Beach Day survey

Hello LRP-ers,

This survey is about getting our Beach Day back on the calendar. I see this as another post-COVID social gathering instead of a fund-raiser for another group. I would like to get as many thoughts as reasonable.

Should we have a Beach Day this year? (Y or N)
2) If no, why? (In a few words)
3) If yes, what do you think about July? (Y or N)
4) If, yes, would you rather the 23rd or the 16th*? (23 or 16)
(* our usual monthly meet-up day)
5) Would you prefer Opechee or Ahern? (Opechee or Ahern)
Note: The road to Ahern was chained off.
Note: As of today (6/30) Opechee has a cyanobacteria warning.
6) Funding: Our bank balance is almost $900. Could we use some of those funds for food and supplies? (Y or N)
7) Funding: Should we request $5 / person to help recoup our expenses? (Y or N)
8) Would you be attending? (Y or N)

Thanks for reading this far. I look forward to your replies.

Aubrey Freeman is running for School Board

I am running for a school board seat in SAU4, the Newfound Area School District (a very mediocre performing school district). This is a co-op school district, and even though I am running as the representative from Bridgewater, all 7 towns vote on the seats, so I have to campaign in all 7 towns.

I could use some Porcupines’ help on Tuesday, March 8 to do sign-holding at 7 different town halls. If anyone can help out for an hour or two that day, that would be great.

They can contact me at aubreyyfreedman@gmail.com to figure out logistics or send a message at aubreyforschoolboard.com.

LRP T shirts

Greetings, LRP-ers.

We have some new members in our group, so I thought that I would explore the interest in LRP T shirts _before_ I place an order.

The design was in white ink on navy blue shirts. I’m guessing that the cost will be $18-20 (I’ll need to check).

You can post size(s) and number as a comment and I’ll collate.
