On Saturday, November 8, 2019, the fall chill in the air was the perfect evening to come taste and vote for The 2019 Best New Boston Homemade Soup. This was a difficult decision for all soups were unique and delicious. 123 people came to taste and vote for the best among 16 soup entries The menu also included salad, rolls, and cookie sundae dessert topped with homemade fudge sauce. The event was scheduled from 5-7pm but by 6:10pm we had to turn guests away for all crock pots were empty.

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to the volunteers: Joann McAlister, David and Carol Hulick, Felecia Saucier, Betsy Whitman, Gail Cousins, Dana Robie and Sam Gordon, the people in the background who prepped and broke down.

On May 18, 2019, Friends of New Boston Rail Trail hosted their biggest fundraiser of the year - the 2019 Moustache Dache! The 5k and 1-mile fun-run was a hit with all ages.  

14 people participated in our snowshoe walk on February 16, 2019, while enjoying the full moon! Headlamps were not needed for the full moon was on cue! Kate Fitzpatrick entertained us with a story about finding mother nature while huddled around a camp fire.

On Saturday, February 3rd, 2018, on a beautiful sunny day, in 14° weather... 8 rail trail supporters and 2 dogs, walked Phase II & III to see work needed to be done to finish refurbishing the New Boston Rail Trail.

We walked the proposed staging area for Phase II and it will be revisited on April 14th, our first Rail Trail  workday to complete jumpstart work needed.

Other workdays will be scheduled throughout the summer to work on projects that will bring us one step closer to finish the Rail Trail.

On January 14, 2018 hearty hikers Kathy, Debbie, Gary, Jacki, Dana and Louise, along with their dog Trooper, braved a sunny 17 degree Sunday afternoon to hike Saunders Pasture.

Much beaver activity was seen throughout the trail and as always the view of the Great Meadow did not disappoint the hiker.
