The Christmas Kid Shoppe was a great success on December 11th. We had some excited shoppers. Thanks to all who came to shop, and to those who donated their time and items for the store.
We met on December 8th for our annual Christmas Party at East Hill Farm. We were joined by other clubs in our zone and enjoyed a “Yankee Swap” after the meal.
On January 5th we are having The President of the Fitzwilliam Visiting Nurses Association as our guest speaker.
December 10 was a cold, sunny day that was perfect for the 7th Annual Currier and Ives Cookie Tour. Over 200 people participated in this self-guided tour of 15 local inns, bed & breakfasts, and gift shops. A 53 passenger bus from Chelmsford, Massachusetts, also visited 5 of the stops on the tour. A portion of the ticket proceeds were donated to the Helping Hand Center. All the guests enjoyed the event and had many positive things to say. Thank you to the establishments that opened their doors to the public, and thank you to the public for supporting their local businesses.

It’s been almost 20 years since the first issue of TROY TOWN NEWS hit mailboxes and I wondered if the readership is aware of the process it takes to make that happen these days? TTN is staffed by volunteers and financed by advertising revenue. Sally Adams is our advertising coordinator. She contacts both current and new advertisers to get the information for their ads. Judy Mentzer is bookkeeper and occasional proofreader. Pauline Fish works on layout: we use Publisher to produce the paper, inserting each article and ad in a hopefully pleasing and interesting manner.
Times are economically tough for numerous families around the country. With the high unemployment rate and rising cost of commodities (milk, bread, eggs, etc.) it is very difficult for people to provide for their families. Organizations like the Helping Hand Center in Troy are assisting people to lessen the burden of these financial constraints. Helping Hand is foremost a food pantry. They also sell clothes and other donated items for about a dollar, which anyone in the may community purchase. All of the proceeds are then used to buy food for families in need. The number of families that need assistance are constantly growing. With that said, it makes it very important for donations to come in.
