Thank you to all that participated in the Growers dinner held November 7.  One hundred and twenty-five people enjoyed locally grown food and live fiddle music by Randy Miller.

SAMUEL E. PAUL WAR MEMORIAL UPDATE

From the Issue: 
December 2010
The Samuel E. Paul War Memorial Commission has enhanced our team with two new members.  Welcome Jim Dicey and Officer Dave Ellis!   The commission presently consists of Valerie Britton, Chair, Lisa Steadman, Vice Chair, Tricia Tucker, Treasurer, Veronica Hoffmann, Mikel Steadman, Dennis Pratt, Jim Dicey and Dave Ellis.  Since some members serve on both this commission and the Recreation Committee it bonds us together as a solid group with similar goals and a wide variety of skills.
    On October 23rd we took advantage of the water level being drawn down to repair a small leak to the dam. Along with students and staff from KSC we raked out the leaves and removed debris from the pond.  Senator Molly Kelly and Selectman Mike Cummings also stopped by to give us their support and encouragement.  The clean up was really quite an amusing experience with lots of screams and laughter from those who slipped and got covered with wet slimy muck.

RECREATION COMMITTE

From the Issue: 
November 2010
The recreation committee would like to thank everyone in our wonderful town who participated in the Playground Grand Opening and Fire Safety event at Sand Dam on October 10th.  We had over 100 attendees and help and donations came from places we never could have dreamed of.

We’d like to extend a special thinks to Troy Fire and EMT for helping out with Touch-a-Truck, Troy School for the use of the popcorn machine, the ACCESS Program (our after school and summer camp folks headed by Jean Isgro) for the bouncy slide and obstacle course, TD Bank for the balloons, Paul Davis Emergency Services and Liberty Mutual for the fire safety materials, Shawn Marvel/ CLF church for the DJ Services, Rylee Widner from Classic Family Image as our Photographer, Minute Mart for the ice, everyone who baked for the bake sale lead by Sharon Healey, and the American Legion and the Depot Commission for the soda.  We’d also like to thank State Senator Molly Kelly for showing up to support us.

We live in a fabulously supportive town and we could not pull together any of our events without you!  Please stay tuned for December and January schedules!

TROY SENIORS

From the Issue: 
November 2010
Not too much color yet but it sure feels like fall.  The leaf peepers are still trying to find some of our beauty which every year can not be perfect.  We had a great summer and some really nice days this fall.  Time to get ready for all the winter events!
   
We had our fall dinner at East Hill Farm and it was great as usual.  Now we have to plan for our November 4th trip to the Lantana in Randolph, Ma.  This will be an American Bandstand Review show.  We will have a turkey dinner with all the fixings.  Hope you have signed up to go as this trip is a great one and the last one for this year.
   
At our November meeting on the 17th, 1 PM, at Kimball Hall please bring an unwrapped gift for a Nursing Home resident
