HELPING HAND BASKET DISTRIBUTION

From the Issue: 
December 2010
Volunteers from Helping Hand and the community gathered at Kimball Hall to distribute the annual Thanksgiving food baskets.  Over 20 community members, including eight great teens from MRHS were in attendance to help load boxes and carry out the goodies to cars—which included a turkey, vegetables, brownie mix, everything you could possible need to have a great meal on Thanksgiving Day and beyond.
    As an additional treat, staff and students from MRHS provided 19 additional loaded baskets which were raffled off to participants.
    Just another example of Troy’s willingness to help those in need.

TROY SENIORS

From the Issue: 
December 2010
What lovely fall days we are having at the moment.  We really had some rainy days though.  With the holidays fast approaching we will be busy with friends and families and the Seniors had a “giving” time when we brought items to be taken to nursing homes.  We have had our last trip of the year, everyone seemed to enjoy the food and music. Anyone have a special place where we might be able to put in plans for 2011?

    Our next meeting will be held at East Hill Farm on December 15th at 12 noon for a full course dinner with Christmas sing-a-long with Bob Harkins.  Please plan to stay for the meeting after dinner, this is the time we get to see and talk to our members.  If you did not attend the November meeting to sign up, please notify Lucille if you plan to attend the December dinner.  This is really a help so she does not have to add the job of calling for your decision.  Every little courtesy is needed to make this job easier for her and if  you are unable to attend and have already made reservations please call to cancel.  Thank You!

HELPING HAND CENTER

From the Issue: 
December 2010
Winter is upon us and the cold winds are blowing.  While we sit snug in our heated homes, many of our neighbors and friends are having a hard time making ends meet.  Some have to use grocery money to pay for fuel costs or electricity  and others just can't afford to buy their children warm clothing due to rising costs and lost employment.  The Helping Hand Center was set up by all the local churches here in Troy and Fitzwilliam to help when situations like this arise.  We are open 6 days a week and we supply free food to families in need once a week and a clothing allotment to those who need it.  However, we can't do it without your help.  Next time you go to the grocery store, just buy a couple of items for our food pantry.  It doesn't have to be expensive or a lot - just some items each month would certainly help.

A VETERAN CELEBRATION

From the Issue: 
December 2010
At our summer planning session, the two leaders and one cookie mom, Tiffany Bennett, put our heads together to start planning our Girl Scout year.  Tiffany had seen a badge that she thought the girls might like to earn entitled, Wave the Flag.  We started brainstorming about what types of activities we might be able to do to earn that badge.

From that brainstorming came our Veteran’s Ice Cream Social.  On November 9, Brownie Troop 20105 and Daisy Troop 12716 had one of their best meetings ever.  When the Girl Scouts came to their meeting, they paid an “admission fee” which consisted of something to go in care packages to be sent to our troops overseas.  The scouts in the troop each had a Veteran to buddy up with.  First we were introduced to each Veteran.  Then the Veterans helped the girls write letters and draw pictures on cards to send along with their care package donations.
