TROY SENIORS

From the Issue: 
February 2011
Another year gone, where I don’t know!  Seems as though just as soon as I get comfortable with the new year, it up and changes on me.  Guess it just means I am getting older.  Hope it is a great year for all.  The Troy Seniors are in the process of setting up the meetings for 2011 and trips and hope to have the program ready for our next meeting, the last Wed. at 1 PM at Kimball Hall.

We will be starting up the 2011 50/50, do hope you are planning on joining this fund raiser. Just $12 and each month we will draw a number to receive $10 and in Nov. we will draw the BIG ONE for half of the remaining amount, so the more that join the greater amount you can win!!  Not too many joined last year, lets hope more of the members join this one.

Also, don’t forget our first Sat. of the month buffet breakfast. The heating table was fixed (we didn’t realize it was not working right) so every thing should be nice and hot, come and see if we have everything working right again.  Bring your family and friends and help us start the New Year off in a great way!!

The Troy/Fitzwilliam Brownie Troop 20105 and Daisy Troop 12716 will hold a food drive on Saturday, February 19, 2011, from 9 AM to 12 noon at Troy’s Mountain View Shopping Plaza in the foyer at the entrance to the Post Office.  This food drive is to benefit Helping Hands.  Please keep in mind that the need for food is great all year long.  We will be accepting non-perishable food items.  We would appreciate any help you can give.

For each donation, you will be able to take a homemade cookie supplied by our troops.  Also at that time, if you would like to place an order for Girl Scout cookies, we can help you with that.  Our donated cookies this year are going to our home town heroes which include the Troy/Fitzwilliam/Meadowood Police Departments, Fire Departments and Ambulance Squads.  Thank you and hope to see you on February 19.

TROY SENIOR CITIZENS

From the Issue: 
January 2011
Another year has flown by, doesn’t seem possible but with the passing of the holidays we now have to face the long cold winter, so I guess the year is really over.  The Troy Seniors had a good year and will be planning the events for 2011 soon.  If you have any ideas of what we could do for the new year, please let the officers know, perhaps we can incorporate the event or program into the plans for the year.

With the New Year we will be starting up the 50/50 club in January at our meeting.  This is one of our fund raisers, and though not too many have joined in the past years, we will try again.  The amount is $12 for the year and $10 is drawn each month with the BIG drawing in November (just in time to go Christmas Shopping).  The amount is half of the money left, the other half goes to the club.  Think about it, and hopefully you will join.

EAST HILL FARM MOOS

January 2011
On December 11, the 6th Annual Currier and Ives Cookie Tour was held.  Over 150 people participated in this self-guided tour of 17 local inns, bed & breakfasts, and gift shops.  A portion of the ticket proceeds were donated to the 100 Nights Shelter in Keene.  It was a fun day for everyone.  Thank you to the establishments that opened their doors to the public, and thank you to the public for supporting their local businesses.

If you are looking for something local to do, remember that we have 12 km of snowshoe and cross country ski trails for use, as well as the indoor pool.  Rental equipment is available and the pool can be used on a drop in basis or with a membership. 

We have two events in February, Valentine’s dinner on February 14, and the Winter Family Farm Day on February 27.  Please call us for more information.

HELPING HAND CENTER

From the Issue: 
January 2011
The Helping Hand Center distributed about 130 boxes of food at Kimball Hall during Thanksgiving and Christmas to help families who are currently struggling.  It's a fun time and there are always a lot of smiles and music as these boxes are picked up.  This Christmas we were able to buy brand new toys for all our children who were registered.  Their smiles and joy makes the long hours worthwhile.

Everyone rethinks goals and directions in the new year.  Why not commit to becoming a volunteer for Helping Hand?  We would love to have you on our team.  We really do have a lot of fun and most of our volunteers have been with us for years and years.
A reminder that the Helping Hand Center is a fun place to go.  If you are an elderly person living on a fixed income, we would love to help you out with supplementing your food and clothing.  Give us a try and I think you'll find out that we are different from most food pantries.  We give out food once a week along with fresh bread from Price Chopper. If you need an emergency box due to a layoff, please come in. Whatever the reason, we're here to help you.
