Our own Jennifer Grant, Executive Director of Windsor County Partners. Now in their 5th decade, the organization matches caring adults from the region with Windsor County youth, ages 7-12 years old. Their passion is the transformation of Children's lives through mentoring. Over the years they have provided 1,400 matches.

With nearly 40 years of experience in mentoring throughout Windsor County, Windsor County Partners is fully committed to promoting and sustaining positive, one-on-one intergenerational Partnerships. They match carefully screened, caring adult volunteers (“Senior Partners”) who provide fun, trusting relationships with boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 18 (“Junior Partners”) who reside anywhere in Windsor County.

Whether over a short lunch or for two hours a week, the mentoring partnerships create rare opportunities for our Junior Partners to have new experiences and broaden their horizons. For Senior Partner volunteers, it provides a chance to tap into the enthusiasm of youth while offering insight to the challenges facing young people today.

  Jed Merrow is an environmental scientist and project manager with the engineering firm McFarlend Johnson.  He specializes in wetlands, water resources and wildlife. He spends most of his time on transportation projects and has expertise in the interface between wildlife and transportation systems.  Jed has a particular interest in rattlesnakes and softshell turtles and getting them, as well as other animals, across roadways.

Jed pointed out that rattlesnakes are endangered in N.H. with only two known ”family” groups. Rattlesnakes can often wander up to four miles from their dens making them vulnerable as they cross roadways.

Jed is interested in all species of softshell turtles.  Although softshell turtles spend most of their time in water to avoid predators,  to lay eggs they must leave the water making them susceptible to traffic. Despite numerous programs to protect all animals significant numbers are killed yearly by vehicles.

Jed has worked on a number of local projects including the Lebanon Airport runway extension, the Sykes Avenue intersection and the I 89 Bridge over the Connecticut river.  He pointed out the difficulty of obtaining permits for such projects due to the number of agencies involved. 

 

Mr. Mello is a lifelong New Hampshire Police Officer having begun his career with the City of Concord in February 1993.  His most recent employment has been with the Town of Hollis, where he has worked since 2002, advancing from Patrol Officer up through the ranks to Lieutenant, which is second in command for the Department.

 

Some of the Lebanon Police Department Community Involvement Programs:

 

Annual Golf Tournament -The Lebanon Police Department hosts an annual golf tournament each July to raise funds to support youth and community programs. We look forward to corporations, local businesses and individuals in the Upper Valley joining us and making this tournament a success each year.

  1. Bike Rodeo- Lebanon Officers participated in the annual Jim Wechsler Bike Rodeo and register bicycles, talked with community member and more.

    Coffee With a Cop -Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members and officers to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, to ask questions, learn more about the department’s work in Lebanon’s neighborhoods, and drink coffee.

    K9 Awareness Day-The Lebanon Police Department host several K9 teams from New Hampshire and Vermont and increase awareness of the important work our K9 teams do while raising money for K9 related projects including the Vermont Police Canine Association, where our teams regularly train.

    National Night Out -National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

    Special Olympics Partnership- The Lebanon Police Department participates in various ways to support the Special Olympics

In 2014, under the leadership of President and CEO Susan E. Mooney, APD completed a strategic planning process which will guide the organization for the ensuing 3–5 years. Core elements of the plan include four new initiatives which will further strengthen the lasting relationships we build with our patients:

  • A Multi-Specialty Clinic that will serve as a new home for most outpatient clinics, and will be specifically built around the needs of patients;
  • A Business Health and Therapies program that enables employers to reduce health care costs while improving care;
  • A Specialty Surgery program in Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery that minimizes inpatient hospitalization and maximizes successful outcomes; and
  • A Senior Care program that helps more seniors in the Upper Valley age with dignity in their homes, and without expensive institutional care.

Construction of the 44,000 square foot Multi-Specialty Clinic began in the fall of 2016 and is expected to be complete within one year.

APD currently employs approximately 500 individuals throughout the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire.
