Linda has lived in Rindge for 45 years. During her early days in town she volunteered for various organizations. Linda served as a parent volunteer for the Rindge Memorial School and the Jaffrey/Rindge Middle School, and became a member of the Ladies Auxiliary for the Rindge Fire Dept. Both her father and husband served with the 101st Airborne Division. She joined their Auxiliary and single handedly raised several thousands of dollars to purchase a plaque for the 101st at the Cathedral of the Pines. Because of the respect she holds for all veterans, she chaired the Rindge Memorial Day Committee for over a decade and is a long-time member of the Ladies Auxiliary for the Jaffrey VFW. Over the years she has offered group counselling for the families of veterans who suffer from PTSD. An avid history buff, she was appointed to the Board of Directors for the Rindge Historical Society in 1982 and in 1985 became Curator of the Rindge Museum. She holds a place on the Rindge History Committee which is made up of town historians. She still holds these positions today.
