Checklist session set
The Supervisors of the Voter Checklist will meet at the Town Clerk’s office to correct the checklist and register voters on Aug. 7, and Aug. 26, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
To register to vote, one must provide proof of Londonderry residency, proof of citizenship (passport, birth certificate, naturalization papers), proof of age, photo identification.
Applicants for registration who possess proof of identity, age, citizenship, and domicile should bring that proof when they come to register. Qualified applicants who do not possess proof or who do not bring proof with them may register if they sign an affidavit attesting to their qualifications for identity, age, domicile and citizenship. For information, contact Supervisors of the Checklist Chairman Kristin Grages at 603-432-1100, ext. 198.
Council accepts land donation
At a recent Town Council meeting, councilors approved a land donation at 85 Rear Meadow Drive, near the town's protected Kendall Pond conservation area. The small piece of land is an island in the watery area at the corner of South Road and Kendall Pond Road, an area popular for seeing ducks, and other birds.
Marge Badois, chairman of the Londonderry Conservation Commission, said the donation comes from the Robie Family Trust and is assessed at $2,200 according to town records.
"It's a good location for a bird habitat," Badois told councilors, adding the little island can be seen from a nearby observation platform.
Badois added the Robie family wanted the property to remain as a perpetual wildlife area for bird habitats.
Old Home Day parade canceled
This year's amended Old Home Day schedule will not include a parade. Town Manager Kevin Smith reported in recent weeks that a one-day Old Home Day schedule was being planned instead of the traditional five-day event, due to the coronavirus challenges. Activities were originally going to include the parade, but Smith said at a meeting July 13 that after consulting with fire and police officials, it was decided it would be too difficult to maintain social distancing during a parade that annually attracts thousands to Londonderry. Other activities still planned for Old Home Day include a road race, benefit softball game with first responders, and an evening fireworks display.
