Our speaker today was Steve Taylor.
 
Steve Taylor
From Taylor's web page, "Steve Taylor is an independent scholar, farmer, journalist, and longtime public official. With his sons, Taylor operates a dairy, maple syrup, and cheese making enterprise in Meriden Village. He has been a newspaper reporter and editor, and served for 25 years as New Hampshire’s commissioner of agriculture. Taylor was the founding executive director of the New Hampshire Humanities Council and is a lifelong student of the state's rural culture."
 
Steve talked about many of the environmental transformations that have happened in the Upper Valley since the beginning of the industrial age. By 1885, in the state of New Hampshire 80% of our forest land had been cleared.  Today, NH is 85% forest.  Prior to the clean water act passed in 1974, the Mascoma River and the Connecticut River was contaminated with all sorts of industrial waste.  We have worked hard to clean-up our rivers and streams and they have become recreational assets.  He reflected that the building of Wilder Dam, and how river levels can fluctuate have been a boon for wildlife...especially for the pair of breeding eagles who live south of the dam.

Assistant Mayor Below spoke about the new Lebanon Community Power Grant.

It's a Wrap!  Rotary Club of Lebanon's Golf Tournament

We also want to thank the dozens of other sponsors who make this day possible.
 
We want to thank all the golfers who came out to support us.  A good day for golf, and rain held off until the end of the tournament!
