Gilford Ash Wednesday

Beginning with the first Day of Lent, Feb. 26, which is Ash Wednesday, Hope Ministries at the First United Methodist Church in Gilford, invites you to participate in a service of repentance at 7 p.m. Each Wednesday, from March 4 to April 8, the church will meet to enjoy soups and bread for supper, and then participate in a book study. In the book Made for a Miracle, popular author and pastor Mike Slaughter examines the two components of every miracle: divine action and human responsibility. For a real miracle to take place, we must act with God, using whatever gifts, talents, and abilities we have and directing them toward God’s work. If you will be participating in the supper and book study, sign up at 524-3289. The church can also assist with getting you a copy of the book for $10.50.

Wilmot Land protected

On Feb. 13, the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust accepted full ownership (also known as fee ownership) of the Cassey Brook Preserve on Wilmot Center Road in Wilmot. Of the 152 properties that Ausbon Sargent has assisted in protecting, the Cassey Brook Preserve represents the sixth property that will be owned by the land trust. This means that Ausbon Sargent owns and manages the property. The land trust pays taxes on the land (at current use rates) and it is Ausbon Sargent’s responsibility to manage the property consistent with its mission. This 201- acre parcel is the third and largest Ausbon Sargent protected property in Wilmot. It is primarily forested, but also has open areas and wetlands. The Cassey Brook Preserve was managed for forestry in the past, so the property has woods roads in good condition and large open areas created from past log landings.
