                                     Are you curious about Girl Scouts??
                  Girl Scouts is the world’s preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls — all girls — where, in an accepting and
               nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adults,
               girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives — like strong values, a social conscience, and conviction about
               their own potential and self-worth. In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Through
               a variety of innovative programs and outreach opportunities, we are committed to bring Girl Scouting to every girl, every-
               where. Girl Scouting helps girls grow courageous and strong, develop their full potential, relate to others with under-
               standing and respect, develop values to guide their actions, and contribute to the improvement of society through their
               abilities, leadership skills and cooperation with others. In January 2009 Girl Scouts of New Hampshire will join councils
               with Girl Scouts of Vermont forming The Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. They will serve girls in New
               Hampshire and Vermont. Membership is open to girls ages 5 through 17 who subscribe to its ideals as stated in the Girl
               Scout Promise and Law. It is part of a worldwide family of 10 million girls and adults in 140 countries through its mem-
               bership in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
                  The Loudon Girl Scout Service Unit is a very active group serving girls from kindergarten through middle & high
               school. We have a daisy troop for kindergarten girls, four brownie troops who serve girls in grades 1–3, three Junior
               troops who serve girls in grades 4 & 5 and a Cadette and older girl groups who serves girls from 6th grade on up. We are

               always looking for adult volunteers.
                                   Girl Scouting builds girls of confidence, courage and character,
                                                     who make the world a better place.
                 We have a limited amount of openings in troops at this time. If your daughter is interested in joining the Girl Scouts
               of Loudon, please fill out the form below and mail it to: Amanda Masse, Registrar for Loudon Girl Scouts, 82 Lesmeris-

         I can’t resist a fresh peach right off the tree, warm from the sun, and dripping with
           juicy sweetness. This season in our neck of the woods is short, so enjoy while you
         can and be sure to freeze some for use in the months to come.

            Keep it Simple: Grill your peaches and other fruits with a pit. Cut in half,               About 1 hour before serving, stir in remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to
         remove pit, and brush with extra virgin olive oil (you can also add balsamic vinegar       taste. Serve chutney at room temperature.
         to add some extra zip). Place fresh side down on medium grill until caramelized.

         T   he mystery section has always been
             one of my favorites in The Ledger.
         Thank you to Amanda Masse for all her
         years of helping to share our town’s his-
         tory with us. I am Tina Rattee and I will
         be taking over the mystery section for
         Amanda. Hopefully, I can do as good
         job as she has done.
            This month’s picture is out beside
         the Loudon Village Grade School
         (courtesy of the Loudon Historical
         Society). The big mystery is… Who are
         all of these people and when was it
         taken??? I would also love to hear any
         interesting stories about the grade
         school back then. As always, I am also
         looking for more mysteries. Do you
         have any I could use? Please share your
         pictures or info with me, Tina, at 783-
         0483 or trattee@comcast.net. I

                      Working Dogs — Important to the Community
                                                              By Nathan P. Merrow, Reporter for the Rolling Bones 4-H Club



         D     uring a recent meeting of the Merrimack County
               4-H dog club, Rolling Bones, a local dog trainer
         gave an interesting presentation of the abilities a dog
         can put to use to help the community. The experienced
         dog trainer and breeder Mr. Kelly has been working
         with Germand Shepards trained specifically for the
         police force for many years. During the demo he gave
         to the Rolling Bones club, he brought along with him
         a two-year-old Czech Slovakian German Shepard
         named Jack. Since Jack was born and raised overseas
         before being brought to the United States, he re-
         sponded only to verbal commans given in Czech, not
         English. Mr. Kelly expanded upon the fact that Euro-
         pean training programs for police dogs were very well
         versed and experienced, but as a result of recent eco-
         nomic problems a European dog is much more diffi-
         cult to obtain, making American-raised police dogs
         more important than previously. Any dog bought from
         Europe will be friendly and have well-developed abil-
         ities in numerous areas of work. He also explained that
         “a working dog is a working dog,” no matter what
         environment they are in. Even if they are as well
         trained as Jack, no one should surprise a police dog at
         any time, even if they are not currently in active time.
         Jack is a smaller German Shepard than most Ameri-
         can-bred German Shepards, weighing only 71 pounds,
         but he is still large enough to do his job well.

            • Open and close all windows, doors, garage doors.

            • Flush toilets
            • Test outlets
            • Check the basement, attic, and crawl spaces
            • Make sure that certain items as stipulated in the contract are left behind — i.e.
              light fixtures, window treatments, appliances, etc.
            • Test the heating and air conditioning systems
            In short, you want to make sure the home systems are operational and the seller

         bring it to the attention of your real estate professional and attorney. They can

         advise you about different courses of action. For instance, if it is a significant
         expense, you may withhold money until a repair is made.
            A final piece of advice: don’t skip the final walk-through. Because this is a busy
         time filled with packing and moving, some buyers are tempted to neglect this step.
         After all, you are so close to actually buying the home. In reality, the final walk-
