Bridgewater Turkey Trot

The Newfound Grocery and Country Store Turkey Trot is a great event and raises much needed funds to support families in need in the Newfound area as well as supporting some of the vital programs offered by the Tapply Thompson Community Center in Bristol.

Turkey trotters run the 3.5 mile Whittemore Point loop on their own but this year the 40th annual Newfound area tradition will be held in person, starting at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning at the Newfound Grocery and Country Store.

In 2021 the Turkey Trot had almost 200 participants and over 50 sponsors - between shirt sponsors, raffle donors & other contributors.

Tapply Thompson Community Center (TTCC)

The TTCC currently offers a diversified program of youth activities that include summer day camps, youth sports, after school programs, teen programs and special events. Among the activities offered for adults are basketball, fitness classes, volleyball, badminton, archery, karate and the award winning ‘Shape Up Newfound’.

The TTCC is recognized throughout the State of NH as a model for rural recreation departments and has received a number of awards from the NH Recreation & Parks Association for outstanding programs and staff. In addition the Community Center is the sponsor for the Cub Scout program in the Newfound Region and the building is used by more than 20 local organizations for meetings, events and activities.

TTCC is one of the only not-for-profit Recreation Centers in the State of New Hampshire and relies heavily on community volunteers and donors to continue to meet the needs of our youth and adults. We recognize that our Community Center needs to go beyond simply providing a place that keeps kids safe and off of the streets. The TTCC has been designed to help youth develop life skills that will enable them to grow into productive adults with a strong sense of volunteerism.
