These gals, Kathy Blinn, Lyndsey Randlett, Jackie Callahan, and Denise Kehler needed a lot of Moxie to complete this obstacle course, but the results speak for themselves.

Nic Finck sends this tidbit about a Moxie sign found in a 1906 photo of a inclined trolley run in Cincinnati:
 

........this view of the Mt. Adams incline in Cincinnati that carried streetcars up the side of the hill.  Just to the left of the car in the foreground is a Moxie ad on the fence.  Note the overhead wires for both positive and negative current - this was the only city in the US not to use the rails for the negative return.  Later on, this led to easy conversion to modern trolley coaches.


This was a counterbalance system, so every other car used cross-overs above and below to return to the right side of the street.

* May 3rd: Goffes Falls Heritage Day:

NEMC had  a booth and display at this event to promote the Moxie Bottle House restoration project on behalf of the Matthews Museum. We sold teeshirts, hats, signs, and other items to benefit the project, and Moxie to benefit NEMC.  The 12' replica Moxie Bottle Stand was at the event along with Jack Algeo's horsemobile and Russ Bilodeau's NEW moxie "bug"! Senators Deb Kure and Matt Bilodeau helped oversee the booth activities, and visitors included NEMC members Bob Ashburn who came up from Windham NH, and Bob Briere all the way from Sturbridge MA..

The Moxie Bottle house (click HERE for the complete story) was located in the Goffes Falls area for most of the 20th century (1910-1999).

Scroll down to see the flyer for the event and the ad Cornucopia placed in support of the event...

Here is an article from the NH Sunday News of 5/4 and some pix from the event:

Ribbon cutting ceremony: L-R: Senator Matt Bilodeau, sneaker owner Merrill Lewis, Moxie booth sales associates Krysta Lewis and Bailee Houle, event Chairperson Nancy Bridgewater, Alderman Betsi DeVries, Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta,  MHT Airport Deputy Director Brian O'Neill, Revolutionary War Hero Col. John Goffe (aka Mac Morgrage), Rev. Vera Wingate, Airport Historian and radio personality Ed Brouder. In foreground: Senator Deb Kure.

A good time was apparently had by all, but when it came to local media coverage, NEMC president Lewis had to admit de-feet!
