Clubs & Groups
The Christmas Kid Shoppe was a great success on December 11th. We had some excited shoppers. Thanks to all who came to shop, and to those who donated their time and items for the store.
We met on December 8th for our annual Christmas Party at East Hill Farm. We were joined by other clubs in our zone and enjoyed a “Yankee Swap” after the meal.
On January 5th we are having The President of the Fitzwilliam Visiting Nurses Association as our guest speaker.
Our December meeting will be our Christmas dinner and sing-a-long of Christmas Carols. Dinner will be held at noon December 21st at east Hill Farm. If you have not signed up for the dinner please call Lucille and let her know.
Remember to attend our buffet breakfast the first Saturday of the month at Kimball Hall from 7—10 AM. Great place to meet up with your friends and family and wish them all a Merry Christmas. Cost is still $5 for adults and $3.50 for children. A great price for all that is offered. If you have never tried it, plan to attend ...you’ll be glad you did.
The Holiday season is fast approaching. Kick it off by participating in the 7th annual Currier & Ives Cookie tour. It will be running from 11 AM—4 PM on Saturday, December 10. There are currently 15 stops that will bring you to Fitzwilliam, Jaffrey, Rindge, Troy, Marlborough, Peterborough, and Swanzey. Tickets are $10.00 per person, and good for all locations. The ticket includes a homemade cookie and refreshment at each stop, as well as recipe cards for the treats offered. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Helping Hand, a non-profit organization that provides clothing and food to Troy and Fitzwilliam residents in need. Get out and visit our local businesses to see how they decorate for Christmas and also what they have to offer throughout the year.
Part of the KSC effort has focused on border town possibilities. For these, we have referred them to the Selectmen, as our focus remains the revitalization of Sand Dam. Towards that effort we will be touring other recreation sites to get ideas to assist us with our decisions.
The Samuel E Paul Commission welcomes James Selig to our group. James also serves on the Troy Recreation Committee and brings a lot of great ideas to the table.
We wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
This year, the pack decided to set a goal of 1,000 items to be donated. With your help, the Pack was able to turn in 1,415 items of food and one gift card for a local grocery store! Two pick-up trucks full of food delivered the items to the drop off in Keene. The Helping Hand program in Troy received over 30 cases of supplies as a result of the national program.
But the Scouts couldn’t have done it without the support of the local community! THANK-YOU from the Tiger Cubs, Wolf Cubs, Bear Cubs, Webelos, leaders and families of Pack 27! We hope that you’ll help us reach our goal next year and continue to help us with our Good Turn projects.
I imagine that many, if not most, residents of Troy know his name. I hope that Betty (DesRochers) Hebert, a native of Troy, doesn't mind if I use her name but she is a niece of Mr. Boufford. Maybe she can share more about him, such as his full name, the details about his Army career, the date of his unfortunately death, etc.
I knew his mother who lived next to my grand parents (Charles and Delia Rocheleau) on Dort Street in Troy. She was living with her daughters, Mary and Lena, wife of Charlie Rocheleau's brother, Ernest. But she spoke only French and she communicated with me only with smiles as I was/am unable to understand French. A typical American!!
In the meantime, I will try to contact Betty. I believe that her son is a police officer in Troy.
