NHDES Recognizes National Asbestos Awareness Week
Concord, NH - The United States Senate has officially designated the first week of April 2017, as “National Asbestos Awareness Week”. The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, Asbestos Management and Control Program (NHDES) would like to remind the home and business owners that asbestos is still available in building products and remains in existing buildings. NHDES requires State certification of asbestos professionals for all asbestos abatement. State law requires contractors and building owners to notify NHDES of any planned asbestos abatement work or demolition and requires a survey for asbestos containing materials prior to the commencement of any demolition or renovation of buildings in the state.
Asbestos is a regulated waste material and must be transported and disposed of in accordance with State and Federal regulations. Visit the NHDES website for more information: http://m1e.net/c?73255494-4dij5YLuu1d4k%40389917750-0Ye8I1agq2aeo

Grafton County featured in Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s 8th Annual County Health Rankings
Lebanon, NH – Grafton County ranked favorably in numerous categories according to the eighth annual County Health Rankings, recently released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI). Of particular note were Grafton County’s #1 rankings among New Hampshire counties for both clinical care and physical environment. The County Health Rankings are available at www.countyhealthrankings.org.
The Public Health Council of the Upper Valley is working with regional partners to positively address many of the health outcomes, health factors, policies and programs identified by the Rankings. Specific priorities are defined in the Upper Valley Public Health Region’s Community Health Improvement Plan and include:
“The information contained in the County Health Rankings report provides critical input to those of us working to effect positive change in population health outcomes.” said Alice Ely, Director of the Public Health Council of the Upper Valley. “Understanding our communities’ health disparities and what is working well allows the many partners of the Public Health Council to make smart choices about where to target efforts to improve health for all of our communities.”

Morning Mascoma Residents,
Friends of Mascoma Foundation has been busy bringing food resources to our five MVRSD towns.
The whole idea is to gather good food resources that groceries and food distributors have an abundance, have end of a perceived manufacturer”s best used by date, (and there is nothing wrong with the product) or just want to be good neighbor’s and share.
We usually have lots of fresh produce, quality meats, dairy products and lots of dry goods and toiletries.
This is our wish list this week (sometimes, we just don’t have access to these items)! We keep dry erase boards up so shoppers can list what they are looking for.
instant coffee (regular and decaf)
individual snacks like fruit cups and protein bars
toiletries for men and women
low sodium canned spinach
AND VOLUNTEERS—WE ARE LOW ON VOLUNTEERS AT OUR CANAAN PANTRY. We can always use more volunteers at Enfield , too! We can’t distribute our resources without you, our community people. So please email: email@example.com if you want to hang out and meet some very nice people!
