    Join us on a Bike ride around Scenic Jamestown Island.

     Cyclists can choose between several rides, a 20 mile complete circuit of the island, a 12 mile ride to Beavertail Lighthouse and back, or choose your own adventure.  The island is located in the middle of Narragansett Bay with water all around.   If you keep the water over your right shoulder you will eventually circle back to Sue's house.  All rides have wonderful views of the ocean and Newport mansions across the Bay.

     After the ride we will have a picnic at Sue's so bring something to eat and a chair.  Water and soft drinks will be available here.  If you care to take a swim, there is a small neighborhood beach over the hill from her house.  Don’t expect any surf.

    We will have maps of the island available for those new to this area. Both rides include hills.

    As always bring your helmet, an extra tube, water bottle, and well rested legs. 

    Rain date is Wednesday, July 17.

    * This event cannot be registered online *
    Fun at the Farm: Dawn and Joe are looking forward to our weekend at East Hill Farm. We hope we will see you there and encourage you to sign up now. The Inn is holding all rooms for our exclusive use through June 30. If you don’t sign up before then, you may not get the room you want or you may not be able to get a room at all as they will open reservations to the general public on July 1.

    This will be a reprise of our wonderful 2017 weekend, but without the 30th anniversary fanfare. Per person rates including activities, meals, taxes, and tips are $352 for basic rooms. For those wishing to add an additional night and arrive on Thursday, all rooms will be $140 per person and include dinner. All dinners are BYOB, except for a Saturday evening cocktail hour which is included. A $50 dollar deposit before July 1 is required per person to hold your room.

    For new members and those who were not able to attend the 2017 weekend at the inn, activities include: bread making, hiking, biking, (depending on forecast), butter making, needle felting, apple cider making, ping pong, campfire, contra dancing, BUNCO, Farm Yard Trivia, DJ Dance Party, Night walk, horseback riding, massage therapy (extra cost), conversations, getting to know new members, canoeing, and indoor pool and Jacuzzi, as well as a donkey braying and rooster crowing!

    Nearby Keene is a college town with many interesting coffee shops, restaurants, and walking areas. The town of Harrisville has been featured on Chronicle and Yankee Magazine, as an intact, New England turn of the 20th century manufacturing town. Tours of the operating textile mill and a Shaker Furniture gallery are not to be missed and can be arranged by car pooling if there is sufficient interest.

    Reservation deposits should be sent to:
    Sheri St. Laurent
    The Inn at East Hill Farm
    460 Monadnock St.,
    Troy, NH 03463.
    Tel: 603-242 6495

    Please let them know you are with TOHG. Those who hesitate will miss out. Two years ago we filled the inn and we would love to do it again.
