Use Caution During Extreme Heat

PRESS RELEASE
 Residents are reminded to use caution as hot and humid weather in the 90s
is expected through the weekend.
 
Call 9-1-1 to report emergencies. 
Residents can call 2-1-1 for cooling center locations and information.
 
Heat index values are expected above 105 in some parts of the State due to temperatures in the upper 90s and dew pints in the lower 70s.  The heat index values will ride into the mid to upper 90s by mid-morning and exceed 100 degrees most of the afternoon and early evening on both Saturday and Sunday.
 
Residents should take action before a heat emergency and can learn more at ReadyNH.gov - https://www.readynh.gov/disasters/extreme-heat.htm

 
Here are some important safety tips:
  • Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.
  • Drink plenty of water; even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine. Persons who have epilepsy or heart, kidney, or liver disease; are on fluid-restricted diets; or have a problem with fluid retention should consult a doctor before increasing liquid intake.
  • Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone.
  • Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.
  • Stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine if air conditioning is not available.
  • Sign up for NH Alerts to receive emergency information via your mobile and landline phones, including severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service and emergency information from New Hampshire Homeland Security and Emergency Management.
  • Check the weather and listen to a NOAA Weather Radio for critical updates from the National Weather Service.
 
If you must go outside:
  • Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day. Use a buddy system when working in extreme heat, and take frequent breaks.
  • Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.
  • Protect face and head by wearing sunblock and a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Postpone outdoor games and activities.
  • Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.

Calling all cooks
We would love for any of New Hampton’s great cooks or bakers to bring along other items to have with the bean-hole beans, hamburgers, and hot dogs.  Consider making some homemade chili, potato or macaroni salad, cornbread or rolls, or even bringing some cold watermelon.  Any of these items would make a great addition to the meal.  You’re welcome to call the Selectmen’s Office at 744-3559 if you have any questions or want to tell us what you can bring, but you’re always welcome to show up with something to share.

Bringing the Presence of the Past into the Present

The Village Fountain – Thanks to the W.C.T.U & the New Hampton Garden Club

“You have done nicely in such a small town.
No doubt it's created much interest and will give great pleasure.”


The cast iron fountain on Main Street has been in place for 119 years. Purchased by the Women’s Christian Temperance Union (W.C.T.U.) in the spring of 1900 for $145, the fountain provided water for, as the brochure says, “People, Horses, and Dogs.” The W.C.T.U. wanted to ensure there was a steady stream of a non-alcoholic beverage available 24 hours a day (except, as noted in the correspondence below, in winter – unless the residents wished to share the water in the big bowl with the horses). New Hampton School alumna and town activist, Emma Grace Bickford[1] successfully headed the effort to place one of the famed “Clapp’s Fountains” in the center of the village. Below are excerpts of letters from the Foundry to Emma.

[1]Emma Bickford’s husband, Rev. Lewis P. Bickford, was a fellow alum of New Hampton School and the first librarian at the Gordon-Nash Library. Their children were Grace, John, Ina and Annie Bickford. Grace and Ina were also librarians, and then ran the Pillars Guest House on Main Street for many years. John married his 1896 NHS classmate, Lillian Frost, and their son, Chaloner, was born in 1905. Many readers will, no doubt, have fond memories of Chaloner and his wife Ann.

May 14 - 1900
Dear Madam
I ship drinking fountain today in good condition and hope it will reach you the same… The fountain can be handled very easy by using a heavy pair of skids. Roll the fountain on to the skids, and with small rolls it can be moved anywhere.
The iron handles and stop-cocks are for dog trough and one for large bowl. The dog trough is to be shut off in winter. And the people's faucet is shut off in large bowl. The large bowl runs all the year round…

 
May 31 - 1900
Dear Madam;
Did you have any dedication at the time it was set? If so send us a paper containing it… Also, will you send us names of other W.C.T.U.s, to whom we could send our circulars?
You have done nicely so it seems to us in such a small town. No doubt it's created much interest and will give great pleasure.
Yours respectfully,
B.S. Rolfe, for Clapp, Esq.


While the dog trough may be gone, it is good to know that our fountain was intended to serve pure water to New Hampton’s horses, dogs and people! A big SHOUT OUT to the New Hampton Garden Club for ensuring that the fountain continues to give us all “great pleasure!”
