Weare offers chance to win a cord of wood
According to Director Tim Redmond of the Department of Public Works, Weare residents can enter the lottery for the wood that has been harvested from the sides of the road from various work projects. Extensive tree cutting for road reconstruction and maintenance of the Clinton Grove Academy has resulted in a stockpile of 16 cords of wood.
Redmond said the DPW started collecting the leftover wood for safety reasons.
Two years ago, the town held a similar lottery, according to Town Administrator Naomi Bolton. More than 150 people registered to win one of 26 cords of wood. But this year, there are rules in place.
The wood is not split, and it has to be hauled away by the person who wins it. Each of the 16 piles of wood is estimated to be around a cord, but the town makes no promises about the exact amount of each pile.
“It’s kind of comical to watch,” said Bolton. “The selectmen had a lot of fun playing bingo last time.”
