A Note from Arrowhead Recreation Club
So, to avoid any speculation or wondering, if you haven’t heard I’ve had to scale back Arrowhead duties a bit.

My wife was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia a few years ago and it has now advanced to the point where she is in hospice care, so my Arrowhead time will be limited.
There may be some delays in upcoming season preparations and responding to requests and questions.

Thanks for your support - Chuck

Claremont Savings Bank Opens New Branch in West Lebanon, NH
Claremont Savings Bank, a mutual savings bank headquartered in Claremont, New Hampshire and serving personal and business banking customers throughout the region, proudly opens their new branch located at 106 North Main Street in West Lebanon, New Hampshire on Monday, December 6th. Grand Opening celebrations will take place in the spring of 2022.

The location was originally a bank over 50 years ago, and most recently was the home of the Great Eastern Radio Group, who have moved to the upper level of the building. The lobby, offices and teller pod area were designed by The Element Group out of Portsmouth, NH and remodeled by Down to Earth Construction out of Massachusetts using local sub-contractors.
This new branch will be home to Ryan Tremblay, Vice President, Market Manager and his staff Broghan Eaton and Megan Herschel who are seasoned Relationship Bankers moving from the Main Office of Claremont Savings Bank for the opening. In addition, Allison Childs, AVP Mortgage Lender and Adam Pippin, AVP, Commercial Lender will round out the staff. 

“Community banking has been the cornerstone of our bank for over 110 years,” said Reggie Greene, President and Chief Executive Officer of Claremont Savings Bank. “We are excited to be opening a branch in West Lebanon. We have a great staff in the office in addition to many of us who have been doing business in the Upper Valley for years. We look forward to supporting our existing retail, mortgage and commercial customers in the area, and welcoming our new customers,” continued Greene.

West Lebanon, NH and the surrounding Upper Valley area have long been an important market for Claremont Savings Bank,” said Carol Vivian, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking. “The bank opened a Loan Production Office in spring of 2018, and discovered the need to further its services and become a full-service branch,” continued Vivian. “This new location on North Main Street will feature modern teller-pod stations equipped with secure cash recyclers, a comfortable and tech-savvy lobby and coffee station, touchscreen computer in branch, a 24/7 ATM machine, and a drive-up window for convenient service from your car.”

“We are thrilled to be expanding our presence in the Upper Valley,” said Ryan Tremblay, Vice President Market Manager. “We have an enthusiastic team of employees in addition to a Mortgage Lender and Commercial Lender full-time in our new office. I look forward to continuing to establish relationships and delivering valuable results to Upper Valley residents and employers,” continued Tremblay.

Visual Verse IV – Diversity is Beauty Now Available

The Literary Arts Guild of the Center for the Arts, Lake Sunapee Region and the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum proudly announce the publication of a new book titled Visual Verse - Diversity is Beauty.

"The Literary Arts Guild invited the Mount Kearsarge Indian Museum to become our 2021 partner in the now-fulfilled hope that their chosen pictures would deepen poetic honoring of the beauty and the diversity that became our mutual theme," said Nancy Marashio, Chair of the Literary Arts Guild. 

This exquisite book is a collection of beautiful photos submitted by the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum, depicting many dimensions of Native American life and culture. They range from the colorful movement of the Ribbon Dancer's regalia and the intricate detail of a dyed porcupine quill basket to the birch womb of a canoe where children of the Dawn Land huddled. Each photo is accompanied by an inspirational poem skillfully crafted by a member of the John Hay Poetry Society.

"The Mt Kearsarge Indian Museum is proud to collaborate with the Literary Arts Guild and the John Hay poets," said Andy Bullock, Director of the museum. "We are honored to share images of Native art, museum events and some of the hundreds of species of plants that abound at the museum's campus. The culmination of this collaboration is the release of an outstanding book of poetry, just in time for Christmas, and we hope you'll support these organizations by purchasing a copy."

Visual Verse - Diversity is Beauty is available in Warner at the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum and MainStreet Bookends. It also may be purchased at Morgan Hill Bookstore in New London, Gibson's Book Store in Concord, Center for the Arts at the New London Inn and through the CFA or MKIM websites.

The Literary Arts Guild is a branch of the Center for the Arts, whose purpose is to support and promote the creative written arts. The John Hay Poetry Society honors its namesake by promoting poets and poetry, and the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum is a highly respected center for the preservation of Native American history and for sharing Native Cultures.
