Spring Clothing Swap At Epsom Bible Church


In an effort to help manage the cost of clothing for our community families, the Epsom Bible Church will be holding a free clothing swap on Saturday, May 10th, from 9-12 noon at 398 Black Hall Road in Epsom.


You may bring donated clothing beginning at 8:30 am. All clothes need to be clean and in good repair, and separated by size and gender. Both adult and childrenís clothing are accepted. Clothes will be sorted and distributed to tables by the person dropping them off. Once clothes have been sorted and distributed, you are free to begin gathering clothing in the sizes you need. You do not need to make a clothing donation in order to take clothing for you and your family. Any clothing left at the end of the swap will be delivered to a local charity drop off site. Volunteers for the clothing swap would be appreciated.


The grill will be on for hot dogs and we will be serving refreshments, come on down. Call Joanne Randall at 344-8843 if you are interested in volunteering. Visit www.ebcnh.com or call 603-736-9354 for more information.





To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

This week, the House continues to hold hearings on Senate bills, and is starting to vote them out of committee. SB220, updating the electrical code and allowing the electrical inspectors to charge for temporary facilities (fairs, carnivals, etc), was recommended to pass, 14-4. I was opposed because the the code is going to mean homeowners and commercial facilities are going to experience higher costs for their electrical installations,  and also because I still had those rumors that the bill would cause problems - somehow! But unless I learn something definite, Iím not going to argue against the bill.


SB405, registering radon mitigation system installers, was amended to clarify itís only airborne radon, not water borne, and recommended to pass, 11-7. This one I will be fighting on the floor because itís totally unnecessary. Having the state maintain a list of professional certifications is redundant - the companies proudly post them! And the excuse for this bill was one constituent who had a bad experience with their radon system - nobody else showed up, nobody else even reported that somebody they knew had a problem with their radon system! These things arenít rocket science, and both radon systems weíve bought were professionally installed with no problems. And to top it off, this was the only question of professional licensing Iíve ever seen considered where not one radon system installer showed up to ask for it!


The most fun was with the fourth graders getting a tour of the state house: Pittsfield on Tuesday, Allenstown on Thursday, and Epsom coming up on Monday. Itís always a pleasure to meet them, and the teachers and parents who accompany them.


Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than fit here.
