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
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,
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.
