Meredith Village Savings Bank helps Wolfeboro Carwash upgrade equipment

WOLFEBORO — Wolfeboro Carwash and Executive Detail, located within Clarke Plaza in Wolfeboro, recently purchased and installed new carwash equipment with financing from Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB). The business added a new Ryko SoftGloss Maxx friction/touch carwash and upgraded their existing touchless carwash system to a two-step presoak for enhanced cleaning. Along with these equipment upgrades, they have also realigned their carwash menu to offer more value to their customers.

Andrew Swenson, owner of Wolfeboro Carwash and Executive Detail since 2008, was excited to update  the business' drive through wash services to better meet the needs of his customers. "We are really giving our customers the best of both worlds with high quality friction as well as touch-less options to keep their vehicles sparkling," said Swenson. "Not only does our new friction unit provide an excellent wash and high quality surface sealant protection, but it's also more environmentally friendly - reducing water usage about 60% from our previous system."

To finance these upgrades, Swenson worked with MVSB Vice President and Commercial Lender Gracie Cilley. "It's always a pleasure to help a well-established business, like Andrew's, make meaningful improvements to ensure their future success," said Cilley. "We share in Andrew's excitement as he is able to provide improved services to his customers."

In addition to their drive through options, Wolfeboro Carwash and Executive Detail offers a wide range of vehicle and boat detailing services. For the full-service experience, their executive detail team will meticulously clean the interior and exterior of your vehicle as well as offer a wide variety of paint/gelcoat restoration and protection options. If self-service is more your style, visit one of their car wash bays or vacuum stations, open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, for a quick touch up.

2014 Squam Watershed Report has been published

HOLDERNESS — The Squam Lakes Association (SLA) announced that the 2014 Squam Watershed Report has been published. The Report combines the efforts of numerous conservation organizations and examines the results of decades of data and study on the Squam Lakes including water quality, fish populations, invasive species, boat traffic, and loon populations.

The health of our lakes and watershed is of vital importance to our culture, economy, and environment. Studies indicate that invasive species, water quality and the state of natural resources directly impact property values and important tourist revenue in local and state economies. Regular monitoring and assessment in the Squam Watershed provide the necessary tools and information for the Squam Lakes Association (SLA) and the Squam community to actively protect this valuable resource and maintain its pristine nature.

In 2013, the Squam Lakes Association published the first Squam Watershed Report. This document gathered the results of decades of study on Squam – water quality, loons, fisheries, boat counts, and invasive plant management – to paint a picture of health of the watershed. This first report examined the rich history of data collected on the lake and in the watershed. In 2014, as in subsequent years, we are narrowing our focus to data collected in 2013, all while keeping the historical context and important trends in mind.

In 2014 color codes for each parameter easily identify the state the resource. Water quality and the warmwater fishery in Squam are considered healthy. Loons on Squam are considered to be an impaired population. The state of variable milfoil on both lakes is fair. It is still present, yet we are seeing success in our management activities. Milfoil in the Squam River is affecting the system to the point of impairment.

To learn more, or to get a copy of the 2014 Squam Watershed, visit the SLA website (squamlakes.org), or contact the SLA directly (603-968-7336; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).
