Summer concerts in full swing at the Pavilion


August 01, 2019
TUFTONBORO — Summer in Tuftonboro is a time for enjoying free concerts at the 19 Mile Beach Pavilion. Parks and Recreation Director Peter Zilembo reminds residents that on Aug. 1, the Not 30 band is scheduled to perform, followed on Aug. 8 by the Carolyn Ramsey Band. Those two concerts and others in the schedule will begin at 6:30 p.m. and are free. Donations received will go to the Tuftonboro Scholarship Fund. The complete schedule is available on the Town of Tuftonboro Web site.

The department is also planning a National Night Out with the police department on Tuesday, August 6.

The revitalized Swap Shop operations at the Transfer Station have drawn additional volunteers. The selectmen have accepted the names of Trista True, Philip Martin, Clinton Avery, Sharon Sluski, Elizabeth Gibson, Marilyn Read, and Mary Young for the roster, pending review by Transfer Station Manager Clay Gallagher.

Chairman Chip Albee said he had heard that a volunteer might attempt to videotape transfer station employees and requested a vote at the July 22 meeting that such videotaping not be allowed. All three agreed.

The recent Island Day trash day pickup at 19 Mile Bay, an opportunity for islanders to dispose of larger items, was highly utilized. A reported hitch was that the container put in place by Waste Management on the Friday before the Saturday event received household trash and excess deposits without supervision. The board agreed that future island days will be held on a Wednesday to avoid that issue. Waste Management employees do not deliver containers on Saturdays.

Residents are charged the usual fees for certain items, just as they are at the transfer station. Having containers available at the dock is offered as a convenience to islanders.

On a more serious note, Police Chief Andy Shagoury reported to the Board that Officer Thomas Lefavre saved the life of a resident with the use of Narcan. He will be provided with a letter of commendation and a lifesaving uniform patch.
