Excerpt from Annual Report of the Town Officers for This Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 2007 Shortly after returning home, Bub became the first Gilmanton Police Officer and held this position for 20 years. He worked a number of years for the Belknap County Conservation District digging numerous fire ponds. This was one of the things he enjoyed most playing with heavy equipment. Bub also worked under Road Agent George mcclary plowing and maintaining the town roads. In the 1960's and 1970's he worked at Nelson's Garage in Gilmanton Iron Works. In addition, he drove the school bus, getting the children safely from the Academy to Laconia and back. He continued his public service as Gilmanton's Deputy Fire Chief and Health Officer for many years. Bub could be found every August at Smith Meeting House overseeing the bean-hole Bean dinner and performing plays for Gilmanton Old Home Day. On Labor Day weekend, he played host to the Firemen's Carnival and would call out the numbers at the Chuck-a Luck game. Everyone wanted Bub as the caller, as everyone could hear him. He could also be found setting up and cooking chickens for the annual barbeque. Bub and his wife, Helen of 42 years, had three children, nine grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He lived his entire life in Gilmanton and loved hunting and fishing. This picture of Bub was taken on Thanksgiving Day 2006. He will be missed but never forgotten, as he was truly at home in Gilmanton. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
