Fritz Robbins on Ambitious Sap

The History Corner
Fritz Robbins on Ambitious Sap – Pies for a Ski Club – and Maple Syrup!
The prolific artist-philosopher, Frederick “Fritz” Robbins, along with his extraordinary wife, Elsie – were town treasures through and through. As the New Hampton Historical Society described Fritz in the Summer 1999 Newsletter:

     Fritz came to New Hampshire in 1940 and quickly made New Hampton his home. He devoted himself to his work and involved himself with the children of the town and the students at New Hampton School. He loved animals and was a vegetarian because of it; his dog was his constant companion. He preferred the simplicity in all phases of his life. His cape on Old Bristol Road had no central heating or plumbing, and he hauled his water from the river. He chopped his own wood for the fire and stove, on which he prepared his own meals. He admired Thoreau and was intensely involved with nature, but he was no recluse, participating fully in the social life of the town.
Prior to moving to New Hampton, Fritz & Elsie lived in Alexandria, where he published a sporadic newspaper, the Found Horizon’s Herald, “once a year, maybe.”

Below is a copy of the Feb. 24, 1941 edition that highlights, among many items, the following:
Ambitious Sap: Jan 23 – Lawrence , our village woodchopper, says the sap ran so hard this thawy day, his crosscut saw was covered with froth in every maple trunk. It stopped as soon as the thermometer slipped back to twilight’s winter norm.
Skii Club: Jan. 29 – Pearl and Imogene have been weekending at New Hampton, cooking for a skii club up from Quincy. Pearl baked seven pies to take over.
Ads: – Fine Maple Syrup’s made at Wadham’s Farm
Mar. 20 – Pussey willows are out by F. R. spring.

On a personal note, Fritz inspired so many of us as he biked in and out of the village, his faithful dog running alongside. For many years he had a “booth” at New Hampton Community School’s Spring Fair where he created portraits in pencil or watercolor. Below is a sketch of yours truly, circa 1958. As it happens, Karen and I now live in the house that received the seven baked pies in the newsletter – as from 1940-55 our home served as headquarters for the Old Colony Ski Club of Quincy, MA.

Transfer Station Recycling
 Currently the Transfer Station is only taking recyclables in the form of
clean cardboard (corrugated) and cans

We continue to follow the recommendations and guidelines provided by Federal, State and Local Health officials to help curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community. 

While the State of Emergency remains in effect we will continue to direct glass and plastic into the compactor with all household trash.   We continue to limit the number of vehicles at the compactor to a maximum of 2.  The “mall” will remain closed for the duration of the State of Emergency.

Your understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated.


Police Department - Limited Access

We continue to follow the recommendations and guidelines provided by Federal, State and Local Health officials, taking the appropriate steps to help curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community; therefore, effective immediately, the Police Department will begin limiting access to the Public Lobby of the Police Department.  Individuals needing copies of Police Reports, Pistol Permit Renewals, or initial Applications should call the department at 603-744-5423 to speak with an Officer or the Administrative Assistant.

New Hampton Police Department will have officers available to respond to emergency calls, crimes in progress, and preventative patrol within the community.  Department personnel remain available to serve you by phone, mail, or by appointment.  The 24-hour connection to the Dispatch Center is available by using the Call Box located to the right of the department’s front door.

We understand these precautions are not ideal, but we feel they are necessary to protect the public, our employees, and help our agency provide the Town with the best possible police service to keep our community safe and healthy. 

Road Surface Management System Report Results

In March the town voted to approve appropriations to perform an inventory and evaluation of paved town roads using a road surface management software (RSMS) to develop a detailed management plan with recommendations for future improvements.  The Lakes Region Planning Commission performed this assessment and created this plan in partnership with the NH Department of Transportation and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Inventory and Assessments were entered into the RSMS software for analysis, prioritization, and generation of repair strategies. Repair strategies and a 10-year budget plan have been prepared in partnership with the town and presented within this report.  This management plan will be used as a tool by the Highway Dept.
