Girl Scouting in Loudon: Are You Curious?
D o you remember hearing about all the fun and exciting things the Girl Scouts
did during the past year??? Is your daughter curious about joining??? Are you
interested in helping out — even just a little??? We are forming troops during the
in Loudon. You can also visit the website www.loudonnh.org and print the interest

booth at Loudon Old Home Day and grab an information sheet about Girl Scouting
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-
es Road, Loudon NH 03307. If you have any questions, please call 783-0227 or email email@example.com and Thank

loudon History & Mystery
By Tina Rattee
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-

SUMMER READING PROGRAM NEWS
O n July 12th, Steve Blunt entertained the children with songs and stories, in his
performance “Sing-a-long in the Billabong. The children danced and sang as
they learned about animals native to Australia. They also learned about aboriginal
instruments, like the didgeridoo and the clap sticks. Steve told stories with an Aus-
tralian twist like the Three Little Wallabies; which sounded a lot like the Three Lit-
If you missed the performance, or would like to hear it again, you can check out
Steve Blunt and Joseph Carringer’s CD, Kangaroos and Didgeridoos: Kid-Friendly

The Prize Party will be held on Thursday, August 21. Children with last names
beginning with M–Z are asked to come to the library between 5–6 p.m. to pick out
their prizes. Children with last names beginning with A–L are asked to come in

Steve Blunt and friends “Sing-along in the Billabong.” DROP-IN CRAFTS
The children have enjoyed making crocodile puppets, Aboriginal dot paintings,
kangaroos, and koalas-up-a-eucalyptus tree. Feel free to drop in Thursdays from
10:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m., for a parent-supervised craft time. The last Drop-In Craft
Day will be August 21.

Cooee has a couple more stops before the Summer Reading Program is over.
Here are the hints for August:

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.
A police dog is a well-oiled machine that works receive a dog for the Boscawen Police Department lent contribution to any police department and can

• Open and close all windows, doors, garage doors.
• Run all faucets and check for leaks is Friday, August 15.
• 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
has met the obligations laid out in the purchase contract. If you do have a concern,
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-
through is there to safeguard your investment. I
