On March 28, 2009 the Annual National Walk for Epilepsy will be held in Washington, DC. Brenda and Douglas Lyman will be participating for the third year in a row. Thanks to the donations from the people of Troy, the students at Troy Elementary School as well as friends, family, and the local community, we as TEAM NH, donated $500 to the Epilepsy Foundation. The total for the walk last year was over 1 million dollars. We know that times are hard right now, but we would like to bring some money with us again this year to give from the community. Any amount will be appreciated.
The Club is proud to announce that our President, Lucille Decatur is a candidate for Vice District Governor of 44N. Lucille lives in Fitzwilliam, has been a Lion for 16 years and has ranked among the Lions that “Serve” her Community. She will become District Governor in 2010.
Our club is participating in the Relay for Life that will take place June 5th & 6th. There will be fundraising events for this project before June and we will keep you posted about them.
On Saturday, March 14th we’ll be having the Second Annual Hot Soup Social from 12 noon – 2 PM. Or until the soup runs out. Say goodbye to cabin fever and hello to a free lunch. We’ll have the soup, bread, and beverages. All you need to bring is yourself and other Troy residents. Donations will be accepted but are not necessary. So brave the cold and enjoy a hot meal with your neighbors. The following sponsors are making this event possible: MamaDukes Restaurant, Inn at East Hill Farm, Troy Minute Mart, Hannaford in Rindge, Eva’s Bakery & Cafe. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
Some ideas about fire prevention that may help prevent a fire in your home:
1. Keep clothes, blankets, curtains and other combustibles at least three feet from space heaters.
2. Place space heaters where they will not tip over easily.
3. Have chimneys cleaned and inspected annually by a professional.
4. Clear the area around the hearth of debris, flammables and decorative materials.
5. Always use a metal mesh screen with the fireplace and leave glass doors open while burning a fire.
6. Keep clothes, towels and other combustibles away from stove burners.
I’m Russell Butler, your neighbor living on West Hill Road, and have declared my candidacy for Selectmen. I have not held a position in Troy before, nevertheless, I’m looking forward to holding this position and being involved in our community. I am a family man and conservative in nature.
Hello, my name is Scott Meader, and I am running for re-election in the position of 2nd Deputy Fire Chief. I have been a resident of Troy for 25 years, and a member of the Troy Fire Department since 1997.
I became an officer of the department following several years as a devoted firefighter. I was Lieutenant of the Troy Fire Department for three years, Captain for two years, and have most recently held the position of 2nd Deputy Fire Chief for three years.
My name is Dan Guay and I am running for Deputy Fire Chief. I joined the Fire Department in 2002, a few years after moving to Troy in 1999 with my wife and daughter. Within my first two years of being on the Fire Department I earned my Firefighter Level I and Level II certifications and was appointed to the position of Lieutenant in 2004. Following my appointment to Lieutenant, I was promoted to the position of Captain and have served in that role for the past three years. I also currently hold the position of New Hampshire Forest Fire Deputy Warden.
As many of you have heard, I am retiring at the end of March and I just wanted to write a short note to say thank you. It has been a pleasure and an honor to be your Postmaster. Troy has some of the kindest, nicest, people I have had the opportunity to meet and be of service to. You have made my job here an enjoyable experience and I will miss seeing you all in your day to day visits.
