Friday evening is Telstar High School’s graduation. Graduates from Andover this year are Jacob Berry, Alyssa Cole, Evan Fessenden and Steven Legault. Graduating last weekend from Gould was Mike MacKnight, East Andover.
Congratulations to Joshua Farrington who was recently inducted into the National Technical Honor Society. Josh is a sophomore at Telstar and is in his first year of the Forestry program at Region 9 School of Applied Technology.
Also: The Calvary Bible Church began its summer hours schedule on June 6 with Baccalaureate Sunday. Sunday summer Worship Services are at 9:30 a.m. with a Fellowship Brunch following each week. Sunday school is on break for the summer, but there is Junior Church for students ages 5 through Grade 5 and a church nursery.
The Bike Safety Rodeo, sponsored by the Andover Recreation Committee, is this Saturday, June 12, 9 a.m. to Noon on the common. In case of rainy weather, it will be moved to the Andover Elementary School. This is sponsored by the Recreation Committee and Chase Cyclery. There will be games, costume parade and lots of surprises! Students need to be accompanied by a parent. AES students participating in the “Ride and Win” program should bring their calendars to the rodeo.
The next Community Hiking Event will be held on Saturday, June 19, to Angel Falls in Byron. Anyone interested can meet at the CEB at 10 a.m. The hike coordinator is Jim Coolidge.
Members of the Andover Historical society met on Monday at the Historical Building on Elm Street. They are working on a couple of upcoming projects — their calendar, and Olde Home Day activities.
