LIBRARY'S 4TH ANNUAL TOWN SCARECROW CONTEST: Build a scarecrow at your Fremont residence or work.  Email a picture of your completed scarecrow with your name and address to fremontscarecrow@gmail.com.  Visit the library to cast your vote for the best scarecrow!  Winners will be announced November 1st on the library's Facebook page as well as the Fremont Community Page.

FALL FOLIAGE HIKE:  The Fremont Open Space Group and the Fremont Conservation Commission are once again offering a Fall Foliage hike.  This hike will feature the connection between the Glen Oakes’ Barred Owl Trail and the new trail system in the SELT Garrison Memorial Forest.  The hike will take place on Sunday, October 17th, with a rain date of Sunday, October 24th.  We will meet in the Glen Oakes Parking lot, at the end of Andreski Drive, at 1:00 pm.  The hike will be about 3 miles long, on developed footpaths, with only slight changes in elevation.

     KEEPING SAFE – Because of Covid, the fact we will be in close proximity, and that there will be folks that are more vulnerable, we would ask everybody to help keep everyone else safe.

Fall Bulky Day is Saturday October 23, 2021.  See the flyer attached below.  Anyone wishing to volunteer should reach out to the Selct Board Office at 895 2226 or hcarlson@fremont.nh.gov as soon as possible.

Halloween Movie Night:  The Parks & Recreation Commission will host an outdoor movie night on the front lawn of the Fremont Public Library on Saturday October 30th.  Snacks, candy and drinks will be provided, bring a lawn chair and/or blanket.  Wear your costume for the dance party at 6:00 pm and movie to start at 6:30 pm “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!”
