Old Business:

Heritage Tree Contest

  1.  Mark gave a wonderful presentation, with slides. Hope was expressed that this would be an annual event honoring the trees of our town and potentially beginning to propagate  new trees from the winners. Maggie suggested adding several new categories. One will be selected each year and added to the basic tallest and largest of species. The special category this year was Tree with a Story. Mark will post his slide show on the website.
  2. We agreed to postpone the site visits.
  3. We’ll write something up for the next town newsletter.
  4. Mark will create a poster with pictures we can display at Town Meeting.

Everyone was very upbeat about the Tree Contest!

 Regular Meeting Times ...Pursuant to what was learned from the training on open meeting laws, we agreed that the third Thursday of each month, in the Town Office, would be the NHCC regular meeting time. 

No New Business was discussed


Meeting was adjourned at 8:15 pm by Susan Smiley
