TFMoran’s Eric Salovitch breaks personal record in Dover’s Apple Harvest Day 5K

Eric Salovitch represented TFMoran’s Portsmouth office at the Apple Harvest Day 5K Road Race on Saturday, October 5th. The road race had an impressive 570 runners participating this year! Congratulations to Eric who placed 79th overall, and 10th in his division. Eric’s time: 23:53, finally breaking his 24-minute 5K record! The race is part of an all-day family festival in downtown Dover, put on by the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce. Apple Harvest Day first started back in 1985 and now draws more than 60,000 people and 350 vendors.  People travel from all around to take part in family fun activities, live music, arts and crafts, and plenty of delicious food.

Other festival activities included a row-a-thon competition, where participants must row as many meters as possible within a minute. TFMoran (Eric) held the top spot for the row-a-thon for most of the day, setting the stage at 347 meters – coming very close to a win! He fought until the end, when his friend passed him by 1 meter.

When not participating in festival competitions, Eric and his wife explored Apple Harvest Day while enjoying the outdoors and the healthy lifestyle-theme. Thanks to Eric and his wife for representing TFMoran and staying involved with their community!

TFMoran donates $5,000 to support NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire West Side RENEW initiative

TFMoran has donated $5,000 to NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire in support of West Side RENEW, an initiative to redevelop and preserve properties in significant decline or in need of capital improvements on Manchester’s West Side.

West Side RENEW complements NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire’s overarching community building mission in this area of Manchester, which began in 2006 with the West Granite Revitalization Initiative that resulted in more than $5 million in investment over nine years to increase the home ownership rate, expand the number of owner occupied multi-family properties, and reduce neighborhood density.

The current effort continues NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire’s focus on eliminating or redeveloping dilapidated or problem properties in the area and increasing the number of affordable rental units. TFMoran’s contribution will support the redevelopment of 459 Granite Street to create 4 new affordable rental apartments in a currently uninhabitable building.

2019 “Tour De Manch” Breaks Record with nearly 70 Bike Riders supporting Conservation

Bike enthusiasts, the Manchester Conservation Commission, their volunteers and sponsors celebrated another great success when riders took to the streets of Manchester for this year’s “Tour De Manch”!  Also known as the Manchester Bike Tour, the event is the Commission’s yearly fundraiser to promote their efforts as stewards of Manchester’s natural resources.

This year nearly 70 riders (a Bike Tour record!) participated in the 30 to 40-mile bike tour around the Queen City.  Riders, who began at Eversource Energy Park and looped around and back to the Overlook at Eversource on the Merrimack River were treated to a perfect day of weather with sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60’s, a morning coffee courtesy of Café la Reine, an after ride meal graciously donated by the Puritan Backroom and support throughout the ride by volunteers from Jake’s Bike Shop.  “It was the first year we ran out of chicken tenders,” quoted event Chairperson, and TFMoran Senior Project Manager Nick Golon, PE, “so we know the Tour is growing”.

Riders once again enjoyed sights throughout the City, including Rock Rimmon, the Piscataquog Rail Trail, Nutts Pond Recreation Trail, the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, Lake Massabesic and the historic Weston Observatory.  With the continued growth of the Tour the Conservation Commission is looking to add new elements next year, and are hopeful the improvements will continue to increase ridership and bring a greater understanding to the need to protect Manchester’s natural resources.

TFMoran is proud to be one of the sponsors of this fun and important event. A big “Thank You” goes out to TFMoran’s Nick Golon for chairing this annual fundraiser since 2014!

TFMoran Contributes to the NH Children’s Scholarship Fund

In TFMoran’s support for New Hampshire schools, we recently contributed $5,000 to the New Hampshire Children’s Scholarship Fund, an Education Tax Credit Scholarship. This financial assistance is available to New Hampshire children of low- and moderate- income families to attend K-12 schools that best fit their needs. These scholarships can apply to private schools, out-of-district schools, and homeschooling, which make these options more financially available.

According to their website, since 1998 the nonprofit national charity organization Children’s Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $789 million in scholarships to the families of over 174,000 low-income children. Education Tax Credit scholarships have been available to New Hampshire children since 2013, after the New Hampshire legislature passed the Opportunity Scholarship Act in 2012.

Thanks to Kate Baker, Executive Director of Children’s Scholarship Fund New Hampshire who visited our office for a fun photo op!
