Tuesday evening, July 24 at 7:00 PM, Mike Faiella, a retired history teacher will be at the Epsom Public Library to present The “God-Like Daniel.”  Daniel Webster was born on a small farm in NH in 1782.  Despite beginning life in poverty, he became a legend in New England and across America in politics and public speaking.  Mr. Faiella will bring the life to the legend.


Wednesday’s 1:30 movie matinee is “The Leisure Seeker,” starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland as a long married couple who run away from their family and responsibilities in their old faithful RV they call the Leisure Seeker. The trip rekindles their love for each other and becomes a revelation and surprise right up to the very end.



Letter To The Editor

July 11, 2018


Last night the North East side of town had a wind and rain event and lots of trees were in the roads and on the wires. Several people came out and cleaned the trees (not the ones on the wires) and later helped clean up after the wires were taken care of. 


A thank you to to all that helped!  It is nice living in a town where people do help each other.


We were down on snowfall, quite short on rain and the brooks are dry, yet it’s going to be a great “berry” year!


On July 4th there were thousands of bumble bees and hornets and on the 7th of July there were thousands of bumble bees, hornets, wasps, and deer flies in the magnolia trees. Sounded like a huge swarm, which could be heard a hundred feet away. I wonder what the attraction was!


Paving went very well and still have some hard work to do and some culverts to replace which should happen before school starts. It has been too dry to do much grading.


I am very thankful for the paving we did last year. It has saved us a lot of time, energy and money.


Bless you all,

Your Road Agent

Gordon Ellis


PS: Wondering? How many gallons of water does 1” of snow make per square mile?
