They also receive funding and grants from the N.H. Outdoor Council. Recently the group was awarded a grant from NHOC that allowed them to purchase a new $2,500 carryout litter, which is used to carry injured hikers.

Ticklish Mom (Susan) promises her teenage daughters Lily- Tickle and Heather-Feather a return trip to Newfound Lake by means of their feet tickling torture methods.

They then played "This little piggie went to Newfound" on Mommy's toes. Oh, the feet tickling worked, Susan said yes... about a thousand times.
Precision. Punctuality. Excellence.
