Timber owners’ group to meet

ALBANY – Members of the New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association will gather May 22 at Town Hall for their 93rd annual meeting.

The day will start at 8:30 a.m. with a pair of tours, of forestry work in the pine barrens at YMCA Camp Huckins in Tamworth, or of Homegrown Lumber in East Conway, where Steve Morrill runs a unique sawmilling operation, sawing wide white pine boards and Norway pine flooring on his custom-built Wood Mizer mill. His dry kilns are used refrigerated box trailers.

The annual meeting starts at noon at Town Hall on Route 16. The meeting will begin with lunch prepared by the Kennett High School culinary arts department.

During lunch members will hear from elected officials and others.

After the group’s business meeting, the awards will be presented. The meeting wraps up with a raffle.
