ROUND ROBIN TOUR

From the Issue: 
April 2010
With the coming of Spring and the increasing daylight hours, it’s time to leave your cozy winter den and see what’s stirring.  In honor of both Spring and Earth Day, five local businesses are offering a chance to “Go Green.”  Many of us lead busy lives and often try going to the “big box” stores to get all of our shopping done in one place, or we try shopping online to have exactly what we need shipped directly to our homes.  Often, these experiences leave us dissatisfied in some way. While Internet shopping and “big box” stores have their place in our daily lives, let us not overlook the small businesses located right down the street.

Many of these stores pride themselves on providing an enjoyable shopping experience created in part by having unique items and personable employees who are actually excited to help patrons.  These locally-owned and operated businesses employ our neighbors, donate to local organizations and events, and invest money back into the local economy.  In addition, many of these small businesses enhance local main streets or provide a unique destination while on a leisurely drive down a quiet road.

OLD HOME DAYS

From the Issue: 
April 2010
There is hope for spring....you can at least see daffodils at the grocery store.  Just a reminder of the next Old Home Day Meeting.  Meetings are scheduled for second Thursdays, at Gay Kimball Library at 7 PM.
    We realize everyone has busy schedules.  Even if you don't know exactly what activity your group plans for Old Home Days, letting us know that your group will be participating, will allow us to plan on the space your group wants and/or arranging the schedule.  It will also save us time from trying to find someone to fill the spaces.
    So we can put together a schedule of activities for the TROY TOWN NEWS, we will need to know by the May meeting of anything special.  We will then have the schedule ready for your review at the June meeting.
    If you have any questions, concerns and/or want to volunteer do let us know.  Martha Silander, mks_nh@hotmail.com, 603-242-6402 * Ralph Heald, healdre@webryders.net, 603-242-7745 * Cheryl Bradley, libraryroofs@net1plus.com, 603-242-3633  * Jessica Benner, jnjbenner@myfairpoint.net, 603-242-3039

CLINIC SUCCESS

From the Issue: 
February 2010
The Troy and Fitzwilliam Emergency Management Directors along with volunteers worked diligently this month in preparation for the H1N1 clinic that was held at the Troy school on January 16th. We dispensed approximately one hundred and fifty vaccines to local residents free of charge. Over twenty volunteers from the surrounding area and Home Health nurses worked together to dispense vaccines. The two hour operation ran very smoothly with less than a two-minute wait for all clients.
 
The Emergency Management Directors would like to thank the local businesses including Eva’s Bakery, Fat Boy’s Pizza, and the Dunkin Donuts in Fitzwilliam for their aid in making this clinic a success. The Directors would also like to express their gratitude to David Dahl, Chief Sheats, and all of the volunteers who gave up their Saturday to make sure the day went off without a glitch. Thank you very much from Robert Hebert, Neal Richardson, and the Director Of Emergency Management in Fitzwilliam, Wayne Kassotis.
