Barnstead NH News

Grace Capital Church of 55 Barnstead Road, Pittsfield will be celebrating a community-wide Thanksgiving Eve Service.  Please join us on Wednesday, 11/23 at 7:00 p.m. for fellowship, worship music, prayer and a message.  All are welcome.  We’d love to meet you.



Gourmet Buffet For Benefit Dinner


Gourmet grilled hot dogs and rolls have become the rage at high-end lunch locations and specialty restaurants such as South Boston’s Sullivan’s at Castle Island.  You have the opportunity to indulge in a gourmet hot dog buffet right here in Barnstead on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at the Robertson Family Benefit dinner.


The dinner will be held at the Barnstead Parade Fire Station from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the 19th of November.  The cost is your generous donation.  In addition to helping raise funds for a local family during a very financially draining time, you will be able to create your own gourmet dogs from a selection of fresh toppings and condiments.


Possible selections available for creations include:  German dog (sauerkraut and mustard), Mexican dog (chili and cheese),  Latin dog (salsa and taco cheese), Coney Island dog (chopped onion and sweet relish).  The possibilities are many.  Come and use your imagination to create your own personal masterpiece.  Side dishes will also be served at the buffet, including fresh cole slaw, baked beans, potato salad and American chop suey, both provided by White Buffalo.  Home-made apple crisp, made with apples donated by Duane Farms,  will be served for dessert. 


Eric Robertson, a long-time resident of Barnstead, has battled cancer for some time now and his medical bills have accumulated significantly.     Eric and his wife, Wendy have been active in community and school events with their children.  Eric has worked in area towns for many years as a juvenile probation/parole and law enforcement officer.


A silent auction is being offered.  Area businesses and crafters have offered generous donations for the auction.  A 50:50 raffle is planned.  Please join us at the Parade Fire Station on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Letter To The Editor


“Bucking Up” is a life skill that has served me well. I am noticing now that it is a skill that we are no longer teaching. In the  age of everyone getting a trophy and schools that let children re-take tests, we are doing a disservice to the younger generations.


People need to learn how to deal with getting their butts kicked. Like it or not, it is necessary to be able to pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and move ahead.


There are things to learn at this point. What did I not do, was I not prepared, or was it just not my day?


The protests that have gone on after the election are ridiculous. It is like protesting after you lose a football game. OH Yeah, people do that too. Protests are for when you have been done an injustice and they are very necessary. These are not protests, they are whining conventions. BUCK UP! COWBOY UP! GROW A SET! Take your pick.


It is time to learn a life lesson. It is never too late.
