Arrowhead Upcoming Work Session and News
As of now we are planning on a winter season. There will probably be some changes in procedures and capacity restrictions. Have not finalized guidelines yet.
 
Work sessions will be; Saturday October 31st  and  Saturdays going forward, starting at 9:30, put in whatever time you want.  Would like to clean up and inflate tubes, brush sawing, putting up fences, putting up signs, install lift handles and putting out picnic tables.

Would like to get multiple people to do brush sawing and tube maintenance, this will take multiple weeks. If you have other days available we can arrange for you to help out most any day and time.

Also need help on mechanical equipment and lifts for maintenance and repairs. 
 
Please think about volunteering this winter. As for operational help, we need help on the lifts, in the ski shop, ski and snowboard instructors, first-aid and in concessions.
Arrowhead also needs organizational people both upfront and behind the scenes. For club officers, board of director positions, public relations, marketing, grant research / writing and other areas. 
 
If you or if you know people who would like to volunteer at Arrowhead please get in touch with us.

Sullivan County News
In a way to help show off our region, one of the projects I’m collecting pictures for is to highlight on county war memorials and to display these in a video on our Sullivan County New Hampshire Government Facebook page and through the video banner of pictures on the website www.sullivancounty.gov  during Memorial Day weekend 2021.  
 
Yes, lots of advance planning πŸ˜Š as I hope to collect pictures capturing all our New England four seasons! If you have, or know anyone who has, pictures that would be great for this project, please feel free to send the pictures to commissioners@sullivancountynh.gov with info about where the memorial is located and who took the picture. 
 
P.s. War memorials are not the only pictures we would enjoy receiving. If you have other scenic views of the region, don’t hesitate to share those, too. Thank you.
