TROY SCHOOL MINI RELAY FOR LIFE

From the Issue: 
May 2011
The Troy School students are joining in the fight against cancer by raising money and walking at the school field on May 14th.  The event will begin at 11 AM and run until 2 PM, and will have music, decorations and refreshments.  In the event of rain, the event will be held at the same times on May 21st.  The “Mini-Relay” is an abbreviated version of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

Students will be learning about how cancer can affect them, about lifestyle choices they can make to prevent the chances of getting cancer, and about giving back to the community.  Our relay is being dedicated to the memory of Hilary Nettleton, a beloved member of our school staff who lost a courageous battle with cancer this past winter.

Great News!  You may have noticed a lot of cars and trucks down at the Samuel E. Paul Living War Memorial Recreation Park this past month.  The Cal Ripken little league teams will be using the ball fields again and have been busy getting them ready for their first game on April 25th.  A large group of league members prepared the ball fields and dugouts while the Recreation Committee cleaned up around the rest of the park to get ready for summer recreation.  Officer David Ellis and several volunteers will soon be painting and making repairs to the dugouts and the bleachers.  You can find the games scheduled in Troy at www.swanzeycalripken.com. 

 On another note, the Keene State College students finished Phase I of their Service Learning Project for the park and presented their survey and options to the public on April 27th at the Inn at East Hill Farm.  Our restoration commission will hold a meeting on May 4th at 6:30 at the Library to discuss their presentation and plan for the next phase.  We welcome you to join us and share your ideas.
