Epsom Food Pantry


Well, our Turkey Basket day is over.  We had a good turnout, but of course always a few who disappoint me and are a no show.  It felt very festive and our members were happy to have their dinner along with a yummy pumpkin pie. 


Thank you to the boys and girls who helped carry the turkeys, food, and pies to their cars. The staff of  the Pantry were kept busy as we also kept the Pantry itself open for the usual Saturday pick up. 


All in all, I think it went very well. I also want to thank Chris and Rick for keeping our traffic orderly and our members safe.  Also, a special thanks to John and the members of the Granite State Brotherhood MC for eleven turkeys (big), and a member of the Elks who won a drawing of a turkey and gave it to the Pantry.


Money donations are always a part of the holiday and a very special thanks to the Pembroke Friends of Football, the Werner sisters, and of course, Planet Aid Inc., who just never forget us.


Before I sign off, I want to thank all those folks who came by Saturday with bags of food. I wish I could have gotten their names but we were out straight. Many thanks, dear friends, for remembering us.


Until next time,




Epsom Child Care.jpg

The Epsom fire department came to visit at Circle Child Care on friday the 17th.  They demonstrated how a nice ordinary guy changes into a storm trooper with all the equipment they use.  Nearly everyone got a high five before he changed back.  Not so scary after all.  Then they brought everyone out to the truck where there was even more equipment AND all the kids got to climb through and try out the jump seat.  Thank you guys.



Like Mother, Like Daughter At The Epsom Public Library


The Epsom Public Library is pleased to present “Like Mother, Like Daughter,” an exhibit of fiber art/quilting by Tracy Szanto and mixed media work by her daughter, Sharon Zimmerman. 


Tracy is well-known in the area for her business, Dreamland Machine Quilting, and for her many accomplishments and awards – including several from the prestigious MQX Festival and the Vermont Quilt show -  as a quilter and fiber artist.  


Sharon, who has a passion for creating in any form, has a BFA in photography, but mixes those skills with fiber art, painting and even metal work.  This intriguing exhibit will run through January 13 and may be viewed during regular library hours: Monday – Thursday, 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday, 9 am – 1 pm.


A public reception will be held on Sunday  December 3,  from 1 to 4 pm.  For more information, call the library at 736-9920 or visit www.epsomlibrary.com.
