WOW Sweepstakes Ball 2012 A Great Success

The 2012 WOW Sweepstakes Ball was great success! We continued our unbroken string of sellouts, and all the attendees had a great time. The food was terrific, the band and dancing were great, and the auctions – both live and silent – featured many overbids!

Thanks to all the WOW trail supporters who helped make this such a great event. And a special thanks to all the volunteers who worked so hard on this year’s event!

Oh, and someone won the $10,000 Grand Prize! Rita O’Brien was the happy winner of this year’s grand prize.

The Town of Belmont has been notified that it will receive $282,720.00 federal dollars for the construction of the first phase of the Lake Winnisquam Scenic Trail.

The Lake Winnisquam Scenic Trail, approximately 5 miles long, will be a multi-use trail from Court Street at the Laconia/Belmont Town line to Jamestown Road at the Belmont/Tilton Town line. The trail runs along the State of New Hampshire owned Railroad lines. This runs along the shore of Lake Winnisquam and through some of the most beautiful areas of Belmont. There are many opportunities to see wildlife such as deer, fox, beavers, birds, and even an Osprey nest at Ephram’s Cove and bald eagles in the winter.

The planning of this trail system is current and ongoing. The Belmont Recreational Alternative Transportation Team (B.R.A.T.T.) needs your help. They need volunteers to assist with this and the implementation of the plan as soon as possible.

For more information, contact them at (603) 528-4345 or (603) 387-7056.
