Movie matinee once again on Wednesday, December 14 at 1:30  at the Epsom Public Library.  The film being shown is “Mr. Church,” starring Eddie Murphy in a dramatic role.  The film tells the story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook, Mr. Church.  What begins as a six-month arrangement instead spans 15 years and creates a family bond that lasts forever.  This film is inspired by a true friendship. The Hollywood Reporter says that ”Murphy is a revelation.”

 


 

Epsom Food Pantry

 

Good afternoon everyone. It has been a busy week in the Pantry. We have received a goodly amount of donations which will put us in good shape for the holidays.

 

I want to thank the wonderful boys and girls from Epsom Central School for the great variety of food they collected for the Pantry. Wonderful,  and lets not forget the Suncook Vet Clinic who has had a box going for a couple of months. Dr. Reeves brought us down three big boxes full of goodies. Kelly  Beauchesne, Accountant from Epsom Circle, who had a walk in our behalf brought in bags of food.  Thank you all so much.

 

Now a little serious business. We are unable to accept homemade food. We can only use food that has been made in a commercial kitchen. Unfortunate that we cannot, but those are the guidelines we must follow. Oh and I do not want to end without a special thanks to the men from Market Basket who are so good to us in getting us hamburg in the one pound size on short notice.

 

Until next time,

Priscilla

Epsom Board Of Selectmen Updates

 

November 2016, the Governor held a conference call to update everyone on the “drought.”  The State (and locals) is working on “awareness” and/or water ban recommendations. Tips on how to recommend awareness were mentioned, such as “conserve and preserve.” The Governor is looking to minimize the impact (especially before winter freeze) by public awareness of “conserve and preserve.”

 

As we all may know by now, Webster Park has received substantial damage from the wind/rain storm that hit quickly on Sunday, September 11, 2016.  Over 90 trees came down.  Not only was there tree damage (and a mess to clean up), the small pavilion on the hill was damaged.  We would like to thank everyone that participated in the clean-up with Gary Perry. Bartlett Tree also helped tremendously and worked quickly to have the park safe again.  The park was cleaned and the events went on as scheduled! 

In October and November, the trees that posed some danger, have been logged.  It changes the look of the park right now, but the Town does have a “replanting” plan and will work on making the park beautiful in the spring!

 

The 2016-2017 Budget season is moving ahead – it is that time of year!  The Selectmen have already met with all the Department Heads and submitted their budget report to the Budget Committee. All Budget meeting hearings are open to the public; please see postings at Post Office, Town Office and our web site.

 

It was with regret that the Board accepted the resignation of Debbie Tibbetts from the office as the Assessing Assistant. Debbie has been employed with the Town for 8 years.  The Board and staff thanked Debbie for her dedication and wished her luck in her new adventures!

 

Also, with regret, the Board accepted the resignation of John Dodge from the Planning Board.  John has served on the Board for about 7 years and most recently as the “Chair.”  Thank you John for your time and service!

 

With the possibility of funds from the MtBE Grants, it is with hopes that we are closer to reality of having a water main for the encouragement of new businesses to come into Town.

 

We do recognize and encourage Economic Growth to help with our Tax Rates!

 

Mr. Crowley recently donated his family’s collection of old Town Reports.  It is interesting to compare the reports! Here is a “bit-of-history” – in 1955 Hazel Steele was the Town Clerk! Back in the day – you went to register your vehicles at Hazel’s home.  You could sit in her house on the bench and socialize with others while the wood stove kept all warm – even in July!
