CBNA FFA chapter members and town volunteers prepare to clean up town property on Olde Canterbury Road in Northwood.

On November 5, 2015, Coe-Brown Northwood Academy FFF “Much-To-Do” Chapter members, along with local volunteers and town officials helped to clean up a town owned piece of property near Olde Canterbury Road in Northwood, NH that was heavily littered with tires, trash, wood and other debris. The town is trying to clean the land to improve the environment in the area, as well as so that the property can be sold. One of the missions of FFA is to do community service that benefits the community in regards to its natural resources. Students learn valuable lessons in recycling, land value, personal skills in community responsibility with regards to safety, as well as helping restore aesthetics to their community. FFA members involved with the project included Sydney Wilson, Anna Prescott-Nichols, Shayne Henry, Jason Palmer, Clayton Canfield, Emery Travers, Ryan Graeme, Sam Whitehouse, and advisor Sarah Ward. Volunteers from the town of Northwood included Town Administrator Joe Gunter, Town Representative Tim Jandebeur, the Porcella Family and employees of North Ridge Construction and Tucker Docko of Docko Excavation. Students will be returning at a later to continue to help continue the process as there is still a great deal of work still to do.

 

Important Announcement Regarding Fraudulent Fundraising

We have heard from several local businesses that they have been approached both by phone and by a personal visit by a “Jan McCay” from a company called “SRI.”  This company is claiming that they are working on behalf of Coe-Brown on a “drug prevention” campaign and they are asking local businesses to sponsor the program.  Coe-Brown is NOT affiliated with this company and they are NOT working with us on any campaigns.  Any money given to this company does NOT benefit your students.  Any time you are asked to donate money to support Coe-Brown, please contact the Academy directly if you do not recognize the person or the organization.  We regret that any local business may have donated in good faith to such a scam and hope to prevent this company from taking advantage of our community’s generous spirit.
