On July 27, 2018 Reeds Ferry Sheds® constructed a new shed for the TFMoran Bedford office. The old shed had served the company well, but was getting run down and needed replacing. The new Reeds Ferry Shed was a big improvement, and looks great. The professionals at RFS did a spectacular job of quickly assembling the shed and making sure it was situated in just the right location. Thanks Reeds Ferry Sheds for the awesome shed!
TFMoran engineers have been working with Reeds Ferry on a new site plan to expand their manufacturing facility on the Hudson/Londonderry town line. The company has over 58 years of manufacturing experience in high quality custom sheds, utility buildings, and gazebos.

On Saturday, July 14th TFMoran Project Engineer Scott Olsen, CPESC participated in cycling 100 miles in an event called the Prouty, which is a fundraiser for the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth Hitchcock hospital. Scott has been involved with cycling fundraisers for cancer research since he was a little kid, volunteering at the finish line of the Pan Mass Challenge (supporting the Jimmy Fund), however he began participating in the Prouty when his father was a cancer patient at Dartmouth Hitchcock. The team Scott rides with is the Beam Team, organized by his father’s employer, Bensonwood, of Walpole, NH. Fortunately, Scott’s father was able to make cancer a part of his past and it is their hope that all others who encounter the disease will be able to do the same, largely in part to charitable events such as the Prouty.
The total amount of money raised for the 2018 Prouty race was $2,711,152.34, all which will aid research and cancer patient support at the clinic! Way to go Scott on raising $382 for such a great cause!

Commercial Street, at approximately 7:30 a.m. Sights along the route include Rock Rimmon, the Piscataquog Rail Trail, Nutts Pond Recreation Trail, Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, Lake Massabesic and the historic Weston Observatory.

Since 1989, the Manchester Conservation Commission has worked to preserve the city’s natural resources for the benefit of its citizens and wildlife. By protecting these resources, we help improve water and air quality, preserve rare species of plants and animals, provide recreational and educational opportunities, and mitigate the impacts of storms and flooding.
