CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

FRANCONIA VILLAGE, NEW HAMPSHIRE

December 23, 1965
Selectmen of Easton
Easton,
New Hampshire

Dear Sirs:

The Franconia Chamber of Commerce is asking the Town
of Easton for help in the operation of the Information Booth
and advertising the three towns, Easton, Sugar Hill and
Franconia.

We feel, that even though there are only two or three
places in Easton that might benefit from the program, it
actually helps everyone in the area.

We are requesting the sum of $100 for the Information
Booth and $50 for the folders to advertise the area. We are
suggesting that it be broken down this way so that the Town
of Franconia can spend it for these two specific purposes.

We are proposing two articles but will not put the amount
in so that the people of your town can vote us the amount
that they see fit.

The Town of Franconia is raising their town budget on
the Information Booth from $750 to approximately $1,000.
In the past the Selectmen of Franconia have inserted the
following in their warrant.

ARTICLE : To see how much the town will raise to the
support of the Chamber of Commerce Infor-
mation Booth and raise and appropriate the
necessary funds. This money to be paid
over to the Town of Franconia.

ARTICLE : To see how much the town will raise to the
support of the area brochures, and raise and
appropriate the necessary funds. This
money to be paid over to the Town of
Franconia.

These articles are for your information and guidance if
you feel that your townspeople will be interested in supporting
this worthwhile project.

If any further information is needed, please call the
Selectmen's oflRce in Franconia any Monday evening.

Sincerely,
Stan Rowins
President

EASTON FOREST FIRE REPORT

Report of the Forest Fire Warden and Dist. Chief

Most of us who live in New Hampshire and the thousands
of vacationists that visit us every year love the State for the
variegated woodlands that encircle our clean lakes and
clothe the hills and mountains. Most of us appreciate
these values, but still there were enough careless people
among us to cause over 880 grass and woodland fires to
start in 1965. True this was a much dryer than normal
year but this should have meant the use of extra care.
Fortunately the fire fighting forces have held the line
against such careless acts. It is up to each one of us to be
ever mindful that a spark or flame is a potential fire.

WE MUST ALL BE CAREFUL:

1. To teach our children the danger in lighting matches.

2. To never discard lighted smoking material from a
car or while walking through fields or woods.

3. To safely dispose of rubbish preferably at the town
dump. If you must burn rubbish or brush;

a. Always get a permit to burn from the warden.

b. Start your fire late in the day after 5:00 PM.

c. If burning a field or brush have equipment and
adequate help on hand. The heat from your fire
creates its own draft to spread fire.

Our carelessness with fire is costing our State and Towns
thousands of wasted dollars in suppression and hundreds
of acres of destroyed woodlands. Yours never to enjoy.

REPORT TO HEALTH OFFICER TOWN OF EASTON, N. H.
FOR YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1965

The Infants and Preschool children of Easton were in-
cluded in the 3 Well Child Conferences held in Franconia for
physical examinations and immunization against polio, small-
pox and whooping cough, diphtheria and tetanus.

In the school grades 1-4 we also gave booster shots of
diphtheria and tetanus vaccine and also tested the children for
tuberculosis. These same two grades are done every year
so that the children can be checked every 3 years.

This is the year when "Medicare" will come into effect.
Starting July 1st, 1966 home nursing will be paid for by Medi-
care for those who are covered, over 65 years of age and in
need of nursing care in the home after discharge from the
hospital. With Medicare it is anticipated that there will be
a shortage of hospital beds making the hospital stay shorter
and requiring nursing care at home. For this reason we are
urging the town fathers to start planning to provide this type
of service, and to discuss means for hiring a local Public Health
Nurse. The possibility of combining small towns together to
be serviced by one nurse Ex. Bethlehem Franconia, Sugar Hill
and Easton is feasible and would be less costly. This means
a cooperative effort from each town. Health Education, Pre-
vention of Disease by teaching proper Immunizations, Exer-
cises and Nutrition, Care of the Sick and Rehabilitation of the
Aged are all nursing services needed in each and every town.
The state nurse covers 15 towns so would not be able to do
this work.

The ofBce of Economic Opportunity, with headquarters
in Woodsville, may be able to assist with funds to start this
project. Later on we hope it would become self supporting.

Tax money is used for schools, road maintenance, police
and fire protection. Healthy citizens should be as important
if not more, because without health we cannot function.

My sincere thanks for the cooperation received.

Respectfully yours,
Loretta B. Russell, R. N.
State Public Health Nurse
Lincoln, N.H. 03251
