On Saturday March 12th 2011 Troy NCLA ACCESS sponsored a Rated Beginner Chess Tournament with the NH Chess Association and Keene Knights Club.  The tournament started at 9AM and ended at Noontime.  Twelve area kids competed in the tournament.  Five attend Troy Elementary while the other seven attend area schools.

HELPING HAND CENTER

From the Issue: 
April 2011
The Helping Hand Center remains an example of different churches all coming together to share the love of Jesus by helping people in need.  If we could all put aside our differences concerning religious customs and other burdens we place upon ourselves and realize that Jesus doesn't just belong to our churches but to the entire world what amazing things we could accomplish for humankind.  He is greater than all of us!  God's final command was to go out and spread His glory over the entire earth - to all people groups and nations.  His desire was for all of us to "love your neighbors".

As we all are waiting for spring, it really seems a long way off still.  There's a lot of melting to be done and we still have to go through the mud season yet.  But it is good to know that we are almost there! 
    The Seniors will be starting off with our next meeting being our yearly April dinner at East Hill Farm.  This will be held on April 27th at 12 noon, and will be a full course dinner. If you didn't sign up at the March meeting than you should call Lucille at 242-6743, remember we are all going to make things easier for her and call her.  She shouldn't have to call each one of us—let's give it a try!
    Time to start thinking of those May baskets as May is coming right up.  Many of us need time to plan.  Don't forget our first of the month Saturday breakfasts.  The last few breakfasts were not too well attended.  Now with warmer weather and the desire to get up and get out this is a great way to start off with a full stomach and a great social time.

RECREATION COMMITTEE UPDATE

From the Issue: 
March 2011
The Recreation Committee has just submitted its article for the Annual Town Report, and looking back on the past year has been very exciting!  2010 was a very busy year!  In an effort to formalize and establish the Recreation Committee as a valuable entity in the town, the small group set out to establish a web site www.Troy-Rec.org, a Facebook page facebook.com/TroyTownRec, an email address troytownrec@gmail.com, regular communication with the townspeople through the Troy Town News, committee bylaws, and regularly scheduled meetings.

HELPING HAND CENTER

From the Issue: 
March 2011
Will Spring ever arrive?  We've had quite a long winter with plenty of snow and ice.  It's been warm at the Helping Hand Center, however, because of all the cheerful greetings and helping hands busy with food boxes and clothing donations.  You would never know how hard we work if you heard all the laughter that goes on there.....

I'm always amazed at how God works when people reach out in love to their neighbors and friends.  Volunteers seem to appear when needed and are prompt and reliable - food and clothing is constantly supplied by everyone within the community and our Director, Jeanne Drugg is willing to give the long and exhausting hours needed to pull this all together.  The blessings God provides us is constant and faithful.  My heart is filled with gratitude for all the help we receive each and every day by all of you in Troy and Fitzwilliam.

Have you seen any signs of spring yet?  I haven’t and can hardly see out of a few of my windows due to all the snow, some from shoveling the roof and all our paths.  But I am sure spring will come!  I still would not want to live where we didn’t have the change of seasons and the snow can really be beautiful.
    The seniors had a good meeting last month, programs were passed out and the trips for the year were discussed, the committee really did a great job once again. 
    Remember our breakfast the first Saturday of each month.  From 7-10 AM and at the low cost of $5 for adults and $3 for those under 12.  Bring the family and friends, a good time to get together and enjoy a good breakfast to start the weekend off.  You need a good breakfast in order to weather the cold!!
     Keep March 23rd in mind as this meeting we will have Judy Hall with us to give the History of East Hill Farm and she should know as she has ties to it!!.

EAST HILL FARM MOOS

From the Issue: 
March 2011
With all of the snowfall this winter it is easy to see why people are ready for spring.  Who isn’t sick of shoveling, plowing, and sanding?  Winter may be here right now, but soon the sap will be running for the maple season.  Join us as we celebrate this timely tradition with a delicious maple feast and live fiddle music by Randy Miller at our Maple Madness dinner on March 6.  Hors d'oeuvres begin at 5 PM, and the sit down meal will begin at 6:00 and feature Maple Walnut Chicken, Corned Beef with a Maple Mustard Glaze, and a Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Quiche.  The evening will also feature a silent auction to benefit the Monadnock Travel Council. 

Chase away the winter blues with our Caribbean Night on Sunday, April 3.  Tropical Sensations, the local steel drum band, will play for your listening enjoyment.  Come support the Monadnock Regional Baseball team as they will be hosting a silent auction.  Reservations can be made now for either dinner.  Call as at 242-6495.  Both dinners are BYOB.
