Lyme Community Development Committee PUBLIC FORUM

In April 2017, the Selectboard chartered the Lyme Community Development Committee (initially named the Lyme Economic Development Committee). Their charge was to gather baseline data and to consider the tax impact of various kinds of development in Lyme.

The LCDC privately raised $15,000 to retain a consultant. In the summer of 2018, along with members of the Planning Board, the LCDC worked with Resilience Planning of Plymouth NH to produce the attached report. The major conclusions:

* There is no “magic bullet”. That is, there are no likely kinds of development that will dramatically decrease our taxes.

* On the other hand, neither does any development cause the tax rate to get worse (higher). In fact, all the forms of development considered by the consultant lead to a small to modest decrease in tax rates, even considering any increase in school attendance.

We plan to hold our first public forum on Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 7:00pm in the Lyme School gymnasium to review the findings of the consultants. (There will be additional forums in February, at different times and days of the week.) We expect to use these forums as the beginning of a conversation about what Lyme would like to do regarding development.

Please plan to attend this forum. For more information see public forum information on web site and go to this link: Resilience Planning Report at https://www.lymenh.gov/sites/lymenh/files/uploads/lyme_forum_jan_24_2019.pdf

Reiki with Stephanie Carney and Friends

 – Reiki With Stephanie Carney and Friends –

Give yourself the gift of a relaxing entry into fall by joining me for a brief free Reiki session on Tuesday mornings from 10:45- 11:30.

Reiki is a form of therapeutic touch, a relaxation therapy originating in Japan involving a very light touch of the hands (See further description below). Stephanie Carney has been a Reiki practitioner for about 14 years. Her primary practice for the last decade has been weekly at DHMC working as a volunteer with Same Day surgical patients. She also sees folks at her home for full treatments and volunteer providing 15 minute Reiki sessions through CommunityCare of Lyme.
Curious? Give it a try! Have a cuppa and wait your turn in the lovely Community Care living room, or make an appointment by contacting Stephanie or the CCL Office!

Transitions Reiki  

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by laying on hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows around and through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low or out of balance, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if one’s energy level is high and well balanced, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei, which means “universal or higher wisdom or power” and Ki, which is “life force energy.” So Reiki is actually guided life force energy.

A Reiki treatment can take place anywhere with the client or recipient seated or lying down. A full treatment usually lasts an hour to an hour and a half, and involves a gentle touch. The practitioner rests his/her hands on the body of the client, changing hand positions roughly every two to five minutes. The practitioner works as a channel of this life force energy. Reiki does, however, exist outside of time and place, and can be effective in treatments as short as ten or fifteen minutes, and can even be administered over long distances. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person, including the physical body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

CCL Office Hours

Everyone needs help from time to time. But it can be hard to ask for it.

One confidential call or visit opens access to local volunteers and partner organizations who can help you or a loved one. Let us know what you need and when you need it. We’ll refer you to great, local resources who can give you a hand with:

  • Transportation
  • Home repair and safety improvements
  • Shopping
  • Meals
  • Household help
  • Gardening and yard care
  • Personal care
  • Companionship
  • Pet care
  • Legal and financial management

CCL Office Hours are also a great time to discuss how you can help in the community!

Do you want to meet more Lyme neighbors, help someone out, or work with friends on a community project? Do you want to have fun?

We’ll help you find a volunteer opportunity that matches your interests, skills, and schedule.

Let us know how you’d like to help out – driving Lyme residents to appointments or shopping, helping an elderly neighbor with yard work, providing pet care, pitching on a home or town maintenance project, or offering other types of personal or community assistance. We’ll point you to a community member in need or a partner organization that can provide a fulfilling volunteer experience. And we’ll make sure that the time commitment works for you.

Our leadership team is a group of volunteers from the Lyme community.  It includes a board of directors plus ongoing committees (such as Aging in Place), action teams (such as Day of Service and Independence Day), and individual contributors (such as financial experts, data analysts, and web designers).

Connect with Us

We are eager to answer your questions and hear your suggestions!  Stop by our office hours, or you can submit this form, call us, send us an email, mail us a note, post on our Facebook page, catch us in town, or schedule a time for a chat.

And please let us know:

  • What help would make a real difference to you right now?
  • What can you do for others that makes YOU feel good?
