Almost There And We Need Your Help
The Neighbor to Neighbor Project has been busy building a new home for a Pittsfield family of seven since last fall. With the support of
the community, many businesses, trades people, and volunteers, the house is 95% complete and we need your help to accomplish that last 5% and
get the family moved "home."
If you, or someone you know, can give us a hand with laying the tile for the kitchen floor, building exterior decks/stairs, installing window
and baseboard trim or installing the kitchen counters….
Christopher Marcotte helping lay the flooring at the end
of May. Volunteers have come in all ages and ability
WE NEED YOU! We cannot get the family into the
house until all of this is done and an occupancy permit is issued.
So many have given so much….can you now give a couple of hours and
help us put the finishing touches on the
home rebuilding project? Give us a
call at 435-8568 to let us know how you might be able to help.
Financial help is also needed as we have some outstanding debt that needs to be cleaned up, as well as a few more materials to buy for
the completion of the project. Donations can be mailed to The Neighbor to Neighbor Project at P.O. Box 172, Pittsfield, NH 03263 or you can use
Pay Pal at www.neighbortoneighborproject.net. No contribution is too small and all are greatly appreciated.

Smart Steps Finale
Monday, July 21st
Party! Calling all Smart Steps participants. A party is planned for our finale. Fun is on the schedule along with music, raffles, some
wonderful prizes and gifts. Be sure to attend to support your peers. Learn first hand who wins what, which town walked the most steps and who may
be traveling on to California. This has been a wonderful event sponsored by the State of NH through a grant that was applied for by the Pittsfield
Senior Center. The goal was twofold. To encourage people to get out and move but also to engage the 5 towns that the PASC serves to connect in a
friendly competition. It worked. Thank you to all of the leaders who kept close track of their towns walkers and reported their progress.
