Ceremony at Mount Nimham Fire Tower

On Wednesday, June 12, 2013, from 11 to 11:30 AM at the Mount Nimham Fire Tower, the Kent Conservation Advisory Committee will hold a ceremony honoring members of the Go Green Club of George Fischer Middle School who have designed and painted four mural panels for the cabin at the top of the fire tower. During the ceremony, the murals will be unveiled at the base of the tower.

Shuttle transportation from the parking area at the end of Mount Nimham Court to the fire tower (see map) will be available from 10:30 to 10:45 AM for those who do not wish to hike from the parking area to the tower. Those who wish to join members of the CAC and of the Go Green Club for a hike to the tower should meet at the parking area by 10:15 AM.

Regrettably, in the event of heavy rain, the ceremony will be canceled. If you would like shuttle transportation from the parking area to the tower, please let us know. To request shuttle transportation or for more information, call Beth Herr at 228-5635.
