 Bristol Historical Society Program
The Bristol Historical So- ciety is pleased to announce that on Thursday, May 12 at 7 PM, Dr. Richard Lobban will be presenting a program at the Bristol Historic Town Hall on Summer Street.
Dr. Lobban will present an illustrated program that traces the early ethnohistory of Pa- leo-Indians in New England with a focus on the Abenaki, among others, who lived in New Hampshire. Evidence is marshaled from archaeology, linguistics, and early European contact up to the 18th century as the English colony became the new nation of America.
Dr. Richard Lobban is Pro- fessor Emeritus of Anthropol- ogy from Rhode Island College.
This program is free and open to the public.

Bert Hirtle, whose life story was recalled in Newfound Lake Life’s January and February is- sues, passed away on Wednes- day, April 13, 2022. Bert was at home, very alert and aware of his impending “transition to the essence of the universe.” At the time of his death, he was at peace with family and a caring “Comfort Keeper” beside him. Bert had lived well and given much during his 100 years and 6 plus months with us.
 Cornhole Tournament to Benefit Local Responders and Veterans Support Group
BRISTOL - Responder Strong New Hampshire and Wicked Cornhole are excited to announce a Wicked Fun Cornhole Tournament on June 11, 2022, in Bristol’s Kelley Park to bene- fit first responders and veterans in our region.
Contributions from the event will
be used to provide time limited mem- berships, fitness/wellness training, and assessment/education about stress re- sponse to lower risk of Post-Traumatic Stress Injury, suicide, and other health is- sues.
Teams of two are invited to register for $60 to compete for cash prizes. Bags will fly at 1 PM. All skill levels are able to par- ticipate, and spectators are welcome. The
event will also include raffles, face painting, food, and more.
Aimee LaMotte, personal trainer, Li- censed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, and co-founder of the Responder Group, says “Veterans and Responders are at a significantly higher risk for PTSI, sui-
cide, cardiac illness, and other health issues.” On average, this group has a life expectancy 10 years less than the general population. Education and participation in wellness programs are evidence-based interventions to im- prove these outcomes.
LaMotte says “I’m excited for this event. It’s a huge step in the right direc- tion to get people who take care of our community taken care of.”
Sponsorship opportunities for this event are available, and registration and donation opportunities are now open on Eventbrite under “Responder Strong NH Cornhole”. For questions, or to sponsor, contact Aimee directly at 603-254-9610, or via email at
