The Prospect Mountain High School Class of 2020 is hosting a shoe drive fundraiser. All collected shoes will be delivered to developing countries, such as Ghana, Bolivia, and Haiti. These shoes are sold at significantly lower prices and create working opportunities.


The sophomore class is profited with every pair of donated shoes. Our goal is to collect 300 bags of 25 pairs each. Shoes must be wearable and have no holes.


Please donate in any of our white cardboard donation boxes stationed at the Alton Town Hall, the Barnstead Town Hall, or in the reception area at PMHS. The fundraiser is currently taking place and will run through January 20th.


Please spread the word around the community. All donations are helpful and are greatly appreciated. Feel free to contact with any question or concerns.

Letter To The Editor


I want to make sure our community knows that there is a very active Democratic Committee in our area that represents the towns of Barnstead, Gilmanton, and Alton. The group is comprised of left-leaning residents from those three towns, both Democrats and Independents, who are working hard to mobilize in support of progressive values.


The meetings are typically the first Monday of every month at 6:30 at an alternating site in one of three towns. Come to the meetings to listen to the dynamic guest speakers, to take part in activism, to coordinate long-term planning, or just to commune with other like-minded people.


To get on the email list and be notified of upcoming meetings and actions, email Strength in solidarity!
