Epsom Food Pantry
Hi everybody! Well,
another week of questionable weather. Today is icy so I stayed home.
We closed one day based
on weather reports and it was a lovely day. Sorry! But
remember, if you need the food, you call me and I will help out. We
are still receiving money from Bob Hahn’s passing. We also got
a wonderful check from Davis Fuels and SSPC of Pittsfield.
Thank you so very much.
One thing we could use,
if you mothers go shopping, is finger food for kids. We try and send
over such food to Epsom Central for their backpack project. What
this is, is a package they get together for the weekends for the
kids whose household is short on funds. So it is food they can open
up and eat, without using the stove, if they are the little ones.
Microwave items are good.
Again, if you know anyone
or a family who needs our help and are too proud to ask, let me know
and I will try and help them.
We have some good looking
meat Liz ordered for us last week and we were pleased to get it as
we were short. I do go to Market Basket and take advantage of their
sales. They are willing to put beef up in one pound packages and
that is what we need.
Pleased to report our
heater is up and running.Stay warm and drive carefully.
Until next time,

Letter To The Editor
As a Metrocast cable
customer, I was shocked yesterday to see our autopay went to a
company called AMERICAN BROADBAND. As a welcome gift, AMERICAN
BROADBAND increased the charge for our no frills cabletv/internet
service by $12.60 per month. That’s $151.20 per year from just one
“no frills” household!
I can’t hardly wait to
see what “frills” AMERICAN BROADBAND will be taking away from us now
that it has been decreed we no longer have net neutrality.
