  • SEPTEMBER 28     A  History of the Connecticut
  • NOVEMBER                 Water Quality & Green Infrastructure

This year, members are also working to advance water quality monitoring of the Connecticut River and we welcome volunteers to help us in this effort.

By using the knowledge and wisdom of riverside communities, we might better prevent expensive and culturally ruinous troubles, safeguarding the magic of the Connecticut River.

Connecticut River Joint Commissions or “CRJC” preserves and protects the visual, ecological and agricultural resources of the Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont, as well as guides its growth and development. The five CRJC Local River Subcommittees, which include all 53 riverfront communities, comment on river related permits and watershed planning. Enabled by both states, volunteer commissioners and members act as the “eyes and ears” on river related issues. In addition, members advance public awareness and involvement on issues of local priority.

I am honored to be asked to spearhead the Nashua Police Athletic League’s first annual Disc Golf Tournament on October 2nd at Birch Park in Amherst, NH (see enclosed flyer).

In 1989, Nashua PAL (Police Athletic League) was founded with the mission to create a positive attitude between the children of Nashua and the members of the Nashua Police Department through sponsored sports, activities, and enrichment programs. We aim to succeed in our mission by setting goals to:

  • Reduce juvenile delinquent behavior through youth-focused programs
  • Instill good character values and healthy habits in future community leaders.
  • Spark positive connections with Nashua’s police officers and community members.


Since its inception in 1989, PAL has grown offer a large variety of sports, education, recreational, and enrichment programs to all of Nashua’s youth, such as:

  • PAL FORCE Football and Spirit programs
  • Boxing
  • Cross Country Running
  • Street Hockey
  • Afterschool/Summer programming
  • Winter Cheer
  • And much more!

PAL relies on the generosity of extraordinary citizens and corporations to provide the resources to keep our youth active, productive, and safe.

I’m asking if it would be possible to post this in your newsletter

Every donation makes a difference in the lives of PAL youth!
