Congratualtions, Abigail!



The March 13 snowstorm did not stop 280 voters from showing up in person at the Town Hall to vote for town and school district officials. Especially impressive were the number of people who stood outside in the snow to “campaign.” And let’s not forget the fourteen people who came back at the end of the day to count the votes by hand. Thumbs up to all of you!



The Community Supper on March 14 was cancelled due to the snowstorm. We now look ahead to the Community Supper on March 28, when Swedish Meatballs will be featured. Community Suppers are held at the United Methodist Parish Hall on Main Street on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 6 p.m. These suppers are free to all, although donations are gratefully accepted and used to defray the costs of future meals.



Maple Weekend in New Hampshire is March 24 and 25. Maple producers around the state hold open houses during this time, giving tours and selling maple products. There are many sugarhouses in the area. Load your family into the car and check them out.



Happy Birthday to Sean Menard and Keith Davison, Sr. on March 26.

Letter To The Editor



Sometime on the night of March 12th and the morning of March 13th, someone or more people came into my driveway and stole property out of the parked vehicles. Apparently, many residences had the same problem that same time frame. I will catch those responsible.


I’m offering a reward for a name or names of those responsible.  Depending on the information given, will depend on the amount of the reward. Just call me, leave your information, leave a random number, say 1 to 100, let me verify the info, call me back in 3 to 5 days and tell me what your number is and where to meet or leave the money, I don’t want or need your name. My contact phone number is 603-724-8255.
