SCENE IN TROY

From the Issue: 
February 2010
Snowy weather provides many photo ops.  This recycled section of a papa san chair is covered with morning glories in the spring and summer.  It still provides visual interest in the cold non-gardening days of winter.


OLD HOME DAYS

From the Issue: 
February 2010
As the wind whistles outside, it is nice to pause and remember the nice warm days of summer.  Are you a craft person?  Do you have a musical talent you would be willing to share with the community?  Does your organization need a venue for fundraising?  Are you willing to just let the community know about your organization?  We want you to be part of Troy Old Home Days this summer.  This helps us know who to contact and just keep organized.  Jessica Benner will co-ordinate the craft vendors on the common.  She can be reached at 603-903-3852/242-3039 or jnjbenner@myfairpoint.net.  At the meeting this month, we discussed the budget and entertainment.   We hope to finalize the finalize our entertainment shortly.

DECORATING TROY

From the Issue: 
January 2010
It is at this time of year that I am reminded of the classic Christmas song… No, no not “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby, silly you.  I mean the classics I grew up with: “The Twelve Pains of Christmas” by Bob Rivers, produced in 1987.  I’m sure you have heard it… “one light goes out they all go out  now why the heck are they blinking? ..you're so smart you rig up the lights!” That song!

Well, that is what the Troy Decorating Committee is facing.  One light went out and they all seem to have gone out!  So, I am hoping now that the season is over you could hit some of those after Christmas Sales and think about purchasing and donating a few of the following items:

OLD HOME DAYS 2010

From the Issue: 
January 2010
At the Troy Old Home Days meeting in November, eleven of us worked on the planning for 2010.  We briefly discussed the structure of the committee, budget and various activities.  Please mark July 22-24, 2010 on your calendars for this year's event and the second Thursdays of the month for the general public meetings at Gay Kimball Library at 7 PM.  We hope we can continue to make this a true community supported event.

There were no objections to continuing the committee as it has been in  the past, just a committee.  At this time, Ralph Heald, Cheryl Bradley, Jessica Benner and myself, Martha Silander, are working on organizing certain aspects of the day.  We are working on arranging for entertainment, organizing the craft fair, coordinating activities into a schedule and working on the shared finances.  We have worked up a budget which has been presented to selectmen.  This will subsequently need to be presented to the Town Budget committee with hopefully acceptance by the taxpayers of the town.

SHARING WISHES...MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE

From the Issue: 
December 2009
TD Bank will once again put up a Christmas tree in their lobby on Thanksgiving weekend for Holiday Assistance.  It is TD Bank's annual community outreach program, helping needy families share the joys of the holidays.  There will be tags on the tree with children's gift wishes.  The tags are all anonymous.  Families who need assistance this holiday season are encouraged to pick up the forms in the Office of the Select Board.  Gifts will be distributed the weekend of December 19th and 20th.  This program is made possible through the generosity of our community.  Thank you.

HOLIDAY BOXWOOD TREE

Just as the sun sets and the brisk winds picks up, imagine that you are nestled warmly and snugly in a candlelit room laughing with friends, family, and neighbors listening to vintage holiday music, nibbling on treats and sipping on hot beverage as you participate in making your own holiday boxwood tree.

Not sure what a boxwood tree is?  It is an arrangement of freshly snipped pieces of boxwood arranged in a container to resemble an evergreen tree and decorated for the holidays.  These trees are about 12 inches high and fit on just about any table.  These arrangements will last throughout the holidays and then dry naturally to be saved and enjoyed again next year.
