After reading through the Kingston, NH Community Page on Facebook, Tom came across a heartbreaking post about a 12 year old boy who lost his fishing tackle pack at a local fishing hole boat ramp. When the family realized the backpack was not in or on the truck after a day of fishing, dad shot back to the boat ramp, but the pack was nowhere to be found. The parents went on social media and pleaded with anyone that may have found the tackle, to return it.
The boy used his own money that he saved to buy this tackle. Tom decided to step in and offer a complete replacement of the boys lost gear. On Sunday, October 22, 2017, Tom and Julie met with the boy and his parents at the boat ramp where the gear went missing, and handed over a new wallet to the boy containing $300 to replace everything that was lost.
After sharing some stories, the boy presented Tom with a photo of himself, posing with a large bass. Tom’s reply to the photo? “This is worth more than what we gave you”.
We are proud to announce that we have earmarked funds for the Thomas M Lynch Archeology Field School Scholarship at Strawbery Banke in Portsmouth, New Hampshire for its second year. “Our scholarships will allow three high school or college students attend the two to four week field school and we are very proud to be a part of this program for another year” says Tom Lynch, owner of Lynch Pellet Stove Services. Tom went through this same program in 2015 and after talking to some of the students that were attending the field school, he knew that he could help with some of the costs for future students of the program.
Funds are taken from the company’s bottom line and is earmarked for different programs for the following year. “We never ask our service customers for donations for these programs. We are happy to give back to community by using funds that are directly taken from our bottom line” Lynch says. “We are very happy to do it. We are proud to do it”.
The scholarship recipients will be listed here when they have cleared the screening process. The scholarships are awarded to enrolled in a related field and show a financial need. Applicants are required to write an essay as to why they have chosen archeology or related field and demonstrate their desire to attend the field school.
