TREE LIGHTING IN 2011

From the Issue: 
January 2011
How many cars pass through the village via Route 12 north and south on a given day each week?  You can just bet Troy gets more than a few raves for our festive Common, —thanks to Michelle Stosez and crew.  Great work guys.  Can we go a step further next year and do some hot coffee and goody things on the days the crew decorates?  There are always cold fingers out there, and while the toots from the cars passing by are welcomed it doesn't do much for the numb fingers.

In past years the decorating crew was able to put a tree or lights on the balcony as well as candles in the windows of the Greek revival building at the south end of the Common.  The icing on the cake might be drop-ins to bring some goodies, maybe some school carolers, and a bottomless coffee pot.  The end result could be tree lighting from a switch nearby.

I BELIEVE...

From the Issue: 
December 2010
I believe, I believe...it's silly but I believe.  Do you remember that line from Miracle on 34th Street?  I do, and it has special meaning to me this year.  I want to send out a sincere thank you to all of the people that donated lights for the common this year: Judy Lepine, Tina & James Selig, Bob & Karen Grey.  And to Margaret W. Rollins & David W. Rollins of Troy for a very generous monetary donation.  I would also like to thank Meadowood Fire Department for volunteering their time and equipment to help us decorate the Gazebo.  A very special thank you to Jim Dicey and his crew for another year of decorating the Light Poles  I know I can always count on Jim to get the job done!

So, this year I am a believer.  You all made me a believer, so thank you.  I couldn't ask for a better Christmas present.  We wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy your town common.  Peace.

FINN FUNN BREAKFAST - A SUCCESS

From the Issue: 
December 2010
The recent breakfast at Christ Lutheran Church featured a Finnish -American menu.  More than 125 folks were served on that busy morning.  Twenty dozen eggs were consumed along with 10 lbs. of bacon, and 6 loaves of Texas Toast.  Popular Finnish fare included approximately 170 pieces of pannukakku, (oven pancakes) with lingonberries or blueberry sauce, viili, (Finnish yogurt) and pickled herring, and of course the Finnish coffee bread, nisu.  One chef cooked 400 palttu or lättyjät! (Finnish crepes)  The breakfast kitchen crew consisted of fifteen church members.  Other bread was provided by Eva's Bakery in Troy and Sunrise Bakery in New Ipswich.

Folks were so appreciative, we were able to donate $414.00 to the Troy Historical Society, sponsor of the Finn Funn Weekend.  Many thanks are extended to The Troy Historical Society and to Martha Silander for her leadership. The Inn at East Hill Farm hosted the weekend and a Market Place was held at Troy school.  The entire weekend was one which we won't forget.

THOUGHTFUL GESTURES

In today’s world we often find our greatest pleasure and deepest gratitude in the seemingly small but thoughtful gestures that are extended to us by others; just check any refrigerator door of the proud parents of a son or daughter.

COMPUTER TRAINING

From the Issue: 
November 2010
Troy NCLA-ACCESS (a non-profit organization that offers educational after school programs for children and learning opportunities for adults) is conducting research for a free adult education program that we are planning on running after-school or on the weekends at Troy Elementary. Right now, we are conducting a survey to see what times would work best for community members and what type of computer training community members would like to see offered in the program (e.g. how to search for a job online, keep your kids safe from internet predators, or use an Excel spreadsheet).

If you have a minute and find yourself at Gay Kimball Library, Eva's Bakery, or the Minute Mart, we would very much appreciate it if you took a minute to answer our two question survey.  Thank you and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jin An at 603-242-7741 ext. 232 or jin.vista.troy@gmail.com.

DEPOT AUTUMN FEST

From the Issue: 
November 2010
The Troy Cheshire RR Depot Commission and the Troy American Legion Post #56 held a successful Autumn Fest on October 2nd.  The highlight of the event was in the evening when the Walt Disney movie “UP” was shown on a 12-foot screen.  Although it got pretty cold towards the end of the show the parents and children had a good time.  It will be one of our goals next year to show a few more movies at the depot in warmer weather.  The lucky winner of the 50/50 raffle drawn at the movie was Jason Bagster. 

Both the Depot Commission and the Legion members pulled together to make this a fun event.  Special thanks go to Lisa Steadman for her assistance at the movie, to Eva’s Bakery for the delicious cookies and the Central Market for their help with the food. 

Valerie Britton will continue to work with Dr. Larry Benaquist on a documentary over the next several months so if you have any ideas please feel free to share them.

We wish everybody a Happy Thanksgiving and make sure to look for the Christmas decorations at the Depot in December.  We look forward to opening up the Depot again in the spring.
