Annual Tree Lighting

All are invited to come enjoy the sight of the Holiday Tree Lighting. Join your friends and neighbors at the Frog Pond for some hot chocolate, treats, and a special appearance from Santa Claus. November 30th 4-5PM lighting will occur at 4:30 If you are able please bring a non-perishable food item or unopened toiletry item to be shared with those in need among our community.
You may have noticed last year our tree looked as if Dr. Seuss strung the lights. We are so lucky that this year Chris Lane Enterprises will be helping us out for a more traditional look!


Pursuant to RSA 36-A:5

The Gilsum Conservation Commission will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 from 7-9PM at the American Legion Post #85 on Mack Road.

The purpose of this hearing is to gather public comments regarding the proposal to utilize a portion of the Land Use Change Tax (LUCT) funds to assist The Nature Conservancy (TNC)in purchasing the 1368-acre Casagrande property on Old Gilsum Road.  The land will be owned by TNC and the conservation easement will be held by the NH Fish and Game Department. The donation of LUCT funds to the “Surry Mountain Project” will ensure that Gilsum retains a third-party right of enforcement of the conservation easement.

Residents unable to attend the public hearing are encouraged to email comments to GilsumConservation@gmail.com.
