    Rollinsford, NH- The ancient craft of spinning – once a necessity for creating textiles for clothing and furnishings - is now a craft pursued by artisans and hobbyists as an expression of personal creativity. Wheels of Industry: New England Spinning Wheels, a new exhibit at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House, features several early examples of these important tools of domestic industry. The exhibit is on view on Saturdays from 1 to 4 pm through October 8, and at other times by appointment.

    Drawn primarily from the collection of Tare Shirt Farm in Berwick, Maine, Wheels of Industry features a variety of early spinning wheels, including great wheels, treadle wheels, double flyers, a chair wheel, and a castle wheel. While some of the wheels were made by local artisans, the majority were produced throughout New England and, in one case, Quebec.

    In conjunction with Wheels of Industry, the Wentworth House is also hosting Spinning Sundays on the last Sunday of each month through September 25. Visitors are invited to drop in and learn to spin from 11 am to 1 pm (free; all materials provided and no registration required), or bring their own wheel or other fiber arts project for a Spin-In from 1 to 4 pm. As an added bonus, at 1 pm on July 31, textile expert Peter Cook will demonstrate flax processing, followed by a guided tour of the exhibit.

    Located on Water Street in Rollinsford, the circa 1701 Wentworth House is maintained by the Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH) as an educational and cultural center for the community. For more information, send an email to paulwentworthhouse@gmail.com.

    Funding will support construction of new facility in Dover 

    DOVER, NH- Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation, more commonly known as COAST, was awarded $400,000 in tax credits as part of the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority’s (CDFA) recent funding cycle. COAST was one of just 19 organizations to receive a portion of the $5 million in funding available through the very competitive Tax Credit Program.

    Grants made to organizations are in the form of tax equity. New Hampshire businesses can support the selected projects by purchasing the tax credits from the recipient organizations, resulting in the nonprofit receiving a donation and the company receiving a 75 percent New Hampshire state tax credit against that contribution. The credit can be applied against the Business Profits TaxBusiness Enterprise Tax, or Insurance Premium. 

    CDFA funds support initiatives that advance local community economic development goals, capacity building for the New Hampshire nonprofit sector, and support for economic development across the state. The NH CDFA Tax Credit Program is unique and not used by any other state to support the nonprofit sector in this way.

    COAST is celebrating its 40th anniversary of providing public transportation to the Seacoast region. In the last 15 years in particular, COAST has experienced its most significant growth. In order to better meet its current operational needs, be responsive to future demand and reduce its environmental impact, COAST plans to build a new facility on its current property in Dover. The project, which will be funded through a combination of funding from federal, state (including the CDFA tax credits), local and private sources, is an investment in both the regional economy and in climate action. 

    “We are honored to be among the organizations receiving CDFA funding this year. Tax credits are a key part of the funding strategy for building a new facility to support the administration, operations, and maintenance of COAST’s public transportation services on the Seacoast,” said Rad Nichols, Executive Director of COAST. “The project supports increased access to reliable public transportation, an essential service for local residents and economic driver in the region.”

    More information about COAST’s plans for their new facility can be found at www.coastbus.org.  

    About COAST 

    Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation (COAST) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to champion and provide customer-focused public transportation with a commitment to excellence in safety and service. COAST is funded primarily by federal and local government support. COAST is governed by a board of directors representing the communities served, two regional planning commissions, and many local and state agencies.

    Rochester, NH- Cornerstone VNA, a local nonprofit home health and hospice care provider, has named Kathryn Howard as their Licensed Nursing Assistant of the Year. Howard, who joined Cornerstone VNA in February 2021, is known for her high standard of performance and high-quality care. She performs her job exceptionally, cares for patients with respect and dignity, and is an asset to Cornerstone VNA and her local community.

    According to Stacey Genest, RN, MSN, Home Care Team Manager, “Kathryn has a unique skill set and utilizes it to create therapeutic connections, making her an exceptional LNA.” Genest continues, “Kathryn is always excited to learn new skills, she is proficient in assisting with installing and removing telehealth equipment in the patient’s home, providing simple wound care, and blood checks for patients on Coumadin, a blood-thinning medication. These additional skills bring value to her LNA role within the agency.”

    Kathryn goes above and beyond and ensures patients are provided the best quality care with a positive experience. She has high ethical standards and expertise in home care, hospice, and acute care that enables her to be an excellent mentor to new staff. She is a great resource for her peers and a role model within Cornerstone VNA. She shows concern for the well-being of others and is always looking for solutions to problems.

    Genest adds, “Quality patient care is Kathryn’s mission, and it is evident that healthcare is her passion. She enjoys serving others and expresses her appreciation to others for their efforts.”

    Licensed Nursing Assistants, like Kathryn Howard, provide basic patient care, assist with nursing procedures, and often include helping with “activities of daily living,” including personal hygiene, meal preparation, and assistance with self-administration of medicine. For seniors and adults with disabilities, LNAs are often the unsung heroes who provide the care needed to help individuals age in place in their homes.

    Rollinsford, NH- In 1852, abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass delivered one of his most famous speeches, “What to the slave is your Fourth of July,” a blistering indictment of an American idealism that ignored and accepted the inhuman treatment of enslaved African Americans. In collaboration with the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire, a community reading of this historic protest speech will take place at noon on Friday, July 1 at the Colonel Paul Wentworth House in Rollinsford, NH.

    The public is encouraged to mark the start of the Fourth of July weekend in a meaningful way by participating in this event, which takes roughly one hour and is one of several community readings taking place across the Granite State on the same day.

    To volunteer to read a section of the speech, or to request additional information, send an email to paulwentworthhouse@gmail.com.

    The circa 1701 Wentworth House is located on Water Street in Rollinsford and is maintained by the nonprofit Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH).
