Anneliese DelGrosso - Kearsarge Kindness Project

Kearsarge Kindness Project

A new program started a few years ago by an anonymous group, “Kearsarge Kindness Project”. Students in the district are asked to write a brief description as to how they would like to spread kindness. The participants are given $50.00 to carry out and perform their project. This program is offered annually in the spring.

One local participant chose to express hers in her neighborhood library. Anneliese DelGrosso is shown here with her project at Pillsbury Free Library in Warner. She has created a box, filled with craft items to make your own cards to spread joy and kindness to others. She specifically stated “to make Mom’s happy”!

Anyone is welcomed to come to the library and use the craft box anytime. Come spread some kindness in our world!!

Thank you Anneliese!

Warner Coed Spring Softball Coming Soon!

softball-04Warner Old School PE and the successful spring coed softball league is going on its 6th year this year. I can’t believe our first game was way back in 2011. Time has flown by so quickly. We started with only six teams and now this year it looks like 10 or 11 teams will be competing. Incredible growth for such a small town.

Over the years, it has been very fun watching our community descending upon Riverside Park every Sunday during spring. The sounds of squeals of joy by the children as they play on the playground. The cheers of teammates and bystanders for a great play made in the field. The smells of hamburgers, chicken, steak, sausage, veggies and hotdogs cooking on grills between games adds to the charm. The parking lot is absolutely packed most of the day as loved ones enjoy the games from the sidelines. It’s all precious.

softball-03Spring 2016 will soon be upon us and there is already chatter about who will beat who. Will we see spiffy new uniforms for some of the teams? Will we see brand new faces, perhaps freshly minted 18 year olds, the minimum age to play?

It’s almost time to dust off those cleats and mitt. Maybe it’s time to head to Concord Sports Center and take a few practice swings. Or, like so many of us, we will wait until our first game. Show up rusty, laugh a lot, play a little and simply enjoy the amazing atmosphere of our little town of Warner and the friendly faces who live in it.


Old School PE is now part of Warner Parks and Rec. Coed Adult Spring Softball usually begins in late April or early June depending on when the fields dry out.

Warner Old School PE is Merging with Parks & Rec!

Old School PE is officially becoming part of Warner Parks and Rec!

What does that mean? It means that if Vince Collins falls off the face of the earth, Andrea LeBlanc won’t have to pick up the pieces all by herself.  It also means that we will have a symbiotic working relationship with the gatekeepers of the fields. It just makes perfect sense!

We will be working with Warner Parks and Rec in the coming weeks to build Warner’s very first Parks & Rec website (long overdue). Old School PE’s old website has been turned off and we will hopefully go live in the coming month or two and be ready to hit the ground running for softball this spring!

Wish us luck in the transition and be sure to look forward to new programs and other sports leagues being offered later in the year.

The future looks bright!

In the meantime, check out Parks & Rec and Old School PE on facebook!
