June 6th Boots n Bling Event is Postponed

From Starting Point to ticket holders and public:

With heavy hearts we have made the difficult decision to postpone Boots ‘n Bling due to a COVID outbreak amongst Starting Point staff. We want to ensure that our community is safe and do not wish to expose others.

The limited staff that remains standing is working hard to reach out to all those involved, while also remaining available to our clients. We ask your patience as we unravel all the details of postponement while still managing direct service needs!

If you booked a room at the Fairbank Inn you can cancel it without fees. The staff there look forward to the new date and offering room discounts at that time.

All registrations will carry over to the new date but if you wish a refund, please contact community@startingpointnh.org

Please stay tuned for a late summer early fall rescheduling of our beloved Boots n Bling fundraiser!

Follow us on Facebook for more updates as we have them.

Thank you for your support and patience.

    7pm • Jackson Public Library

    • Chris Schadler, the NH and VT representative for Project Coyote and Co-Founder of the NH Wildlife Coalition, which advocates for better conservation for predators, will talk about a topic which embodies her interest in wild canids, ‘Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England’: “An eastern coyote is defined as much by its western coyote ancestry as by its DNA contribution from the Eastern wolf.  “Our” coyotes vary physically and behaviorally from its smaller relative – while still carrying the incredible adaptability and canniness of Wile E. Coyote.  This program takes a deep dive into the ecology and behavior of this creature, its indefatigability and how it is the human who must adapt to live with the ‘One Who Cannot Be Removed’. On the horizon, however, is a native carnivore which fled the northeast during wolf removal and now may be trying to return:  The eastern wolf.  A look-alike to the coyote, it has been killed mistakenly for its similarity of appearance to the coyote. We’ll talk about how the wolf and coyote might negotiate a truce in the northeast and how we might do the same.”
  • Community Event: COMMON LOON
    7pm • Tin Mountain Conservation Center, Albany, NH 03818

    • Register Now
    • Add To My Calendar
    • For many, the haunting call of the loon is an important part of the New Hampshire lake experience. Often seen as a symbol of the northern wilderness, loons are a beloved fixture on New Hampshire lakes and many lake goers enjoy watching them as they raise their young. However, the breeding season can be a vulnerable time for loons as they face many threats, both natural and human-caused, while on our lakes. This presentation will focus on the biology and life history of loons, the threats that loons face, and the work that the Loon Preservation Committee and our volunteers have performed since 1975 to help New Hampshire’s threatened loon population recover.

JCC SURVEY: please participate online, by paper, by phone (instructions in email) by Sun, June 16

WE REQUEST AS MANY PEOPLE (individual members of households, all ages, to finish the survey)

The Jackson Community Church (JCC) is working on strategic insight into our church community. We need your feedback and also welcome your thoughts where we provide space to share more! One helpful way to offer your input is to participate in this survey.

Your participation helps provide information that creates guidance as the Jackson Community Church Council and various church teams work toward current and future vitality of the church, its services to its friends and members, and its presence in the wider community.

  • It is most valuable if each person in your household answers independently, since each person is a member of our community and some of the answers may be sensitive and private.
  • We appreciate the responses of adults, youth, and children (separately if possible).
  • Your responses are anonymous and confidential. All information shown in summary reports of the survey data will be aggregated and no individual data will be identified.

This survey has 25 questions.

  • Most are multiple-choice; however, there are some open-ended questions that ask you for your opinion about certain topics.
  • At the end of the survey, you will be provided with an opportunity to enter any comments that you may have concerning topics the survey did not ask about.
  • Completing this survey should take no more than 20 minutes.
  • You have the option to identify yourself at the end of the survey to save it in a draft form or to go back and edit it. Even if you provide your name or contact info, all responses will be aggregated so that individual answers to specific questions are not connected to anyone who provides contact info or name.
  • Summarized feedback, statistics, and trends from the survey will be shared with church leadership and the JCC community.

Please participate by June 16:

    • Or even interview you by phone, on zoom, or in-person.
