 Vermont Fiddle Orchestra Concert _______ 
Everyone is invited to enjoy afree concert at the Sugar HillMeetinghouse with the VermontFiddle Orchestra on Sunday,September 29th at 1 pm. Thisconcert is part of Sugar Hill’sAutumn Weekend Celebrationand the concert is sponsored byCrosstown Motors of Littleton, NH.The Vermont Fiddle Orchestra plays toe-tapping music andloves it when their audiencedecides that they can’t sit stilland just have to dance. Thiscommunity orchestra is open toall levels and ages of players.The orchestra performancesspan several generations, from beginning level players to pro-fessional soloists playing simul-taneously while providing enter-tainment, education, and pre-serving the traditional fiddlingof Vermont and beyond.This entertaining group is cele- brating their 10th year, wasfounded in 2003. In May of 2003, Sarah Hotchkiss awoke inthe middle of the night and paced the floor for a full hour working out the details for acommunity orchestra. Sixweeks later, the VFO held itsfirst rehearsal with about twentymembers. Sarah envisionedmusicians of multi-levels(beginners to experts) playingtogether in such a way that itwould be simultaneously funand enriching for all partici- pants. Sarah also wanted to help preserve the tradition of fiddling"by ear".The Vermont Fiddle Orchestrais more than just "fiddles".You'll find cellos, guitars, man-dolins, flutes, accordions, andother instruments in the orches-tra, too. The VFO wants theaudience and the musicians tohave fun at their concerts. Oneof their most favorite joys is thehear that someone came to oneof their concerts and wasinspired to pick up a fiddle (or other instrument) and join theorchestra.This free concert is made possi- ble by the generous sponsorshipof Crosstown Motors of Littleton, New Hampshire.The concert is held rain or shine, inside the Sugar HillMeetinghouse on Sunday, Sept.29th at 1 pm.Come on by and have some feettapping fun!By David Falkenham, UNHCooperative Extension GraftonCounty Forester My morning is going perfectly.The camp coffee is black andstrong and it is gradually pullingmy foggy brain out of its morn-ing grind. A bright sun risesover an old clear-cut and miststarts to roll off the leaves of theyoung vibrant forest before me.The woodcock who sang lateinto the night have beenreplaced in the morning by thefamiliar call of the white throat-ed sparrow. Their song is like awall of music that surrounds meand penetrates the morning still-ness. Occasionally a flock of ducks or geese fly overhead,often close enough to hear their wings whistling through thefoggy air.Camping on my own land inLancaster has always been aspring and fall ritual in my fam-ily. Technically this is not my

land. The land is cooperativelyheld in a revocable trust inwhich my dad and uncle areequal power trustees and mycousin and I are successor trustees. This arrangement has been in place since the 1980’sand was originally put into place by the trustees as a way to pro-tect the land for forestry,wildlife and recreational enjoy-ment for our family.Recently we have started the process of transferring power of the trust from my dad and uncleto me and my cousin, the soonto be trustees. This event in mylife has met with some emotionsof pride and of course some sad-ness as my dad and uncle passthe land on to their families. It isa brilliant move on their part astheir legacy will be protected infamily hands with a guidinglegal document to manage theland into the future under their wishes.All of this might sound a littlehyper-organized for somethingas simple as owning land.However owning forest land is ahuge responsibility that hasmany rewards, and this respon-sibility should be taken serious-ly by all generations involved.How the banks and the IRSview your land is very differentto how you might view it. It isimportant to make proper legal preparations for the transfer of the land to the future owners of the land which in many cases, asin mine, are the siblings andcousins of the next generation.I visit with dozens of landown-ers each year and tote the meritsof good land stewardship.Questions about land manage-ment are important to landown-ers, and although the answersare different on every land-scape, they are not difficultquestions. Land and estate plan-ning is a very different matter.Good land and estate planningrequires members of the familyto get together and discuss thefuture of the land that is current-ly owned by the senior genera-tion. Difficult questions have to be asked and answered.Questions about life, death andthe future, are all very difficulttopics of discussion, but theymust be discussed and agreeupon in writing with the help of a good lawyer. I can tell youfrom experience that it is noteasy, but it should be a priority.The efforts are worth it as thesuccessor generations arerewarded with a clean transitionof land ownership, rather than a big legal mess that ends up cost-ing more than you planned.Estate planning is somethingthat UNH CooperativeExtension can help with so feelfree to contact me at 603-787-6944,dave.falkenham@unh.edu.This fall I will return to this landto enjoy hunting season. Thesong birds will be replaced byrutting bucks and flushinggrouse. My cousin and I will joke about our new responsibil-ities of trust and my dad anduncle will enjoy the fruits of their labors as their responsibil-ities grow lighter. New Hampshire is celebratingthe 25th anniversary of thestatewide endangered wildlife program with an evening of wildlife and awards October 5.The evening celebration willtake place at the GrapponeConference Center with a recep-tion beginning at 6:30.“The anniversary is an impor-tant chance to raise awarenessof what's been accomplished inthe past 25 years for endangeredwildlife in New Hampshire, andthe many challenges ahead”,explained John Kanter, coordi-nator for the Nongame andEndangered Wildlife Program at New Hampshire Fish andGame.Several species of wildlife and birds of prey, including a pere-grine falcon and owl will be onhand throughout the evening.Awards will be presented to New Hampshire youth, teach-ers, business partners and otherswho have teamed together to bring wildlife back from the brink of extinction in theGranite State. Tickets for theevening are $40 and includereception and seated dinner.For tickets call 603 271 2461 before October 1.
