Jennifer Lynn Ahern Memorial Blood Drive


Jennifer Lynn Ahern is the daughter of Leon and Debbie Sargent of Epsom. Jennifer was an advocate for blood drives for the American Red Cross, although she could not donate blood her story has been shared in many community services throughout her life and since her death. When Jennifer went into Renal Failure in 1979, it was considered a catastrophic illness. At age 5 she would learn about life on dialysis, transfusions, and where blood comes from.  


If we look back to the 70’s,80’s and 90’s blood donations dropped drastically due to the fears of HIV and Aids. Jennifer told her story, a cute little 5 year old was able to grab the attention of many New Hampshire blood donors who came out to help save this child sustain life while waiting for a Kidney Transplant. Her story became the most read  story and she became the front page story of the millennium in the Concord Monitor. She endured over 40 surgeries and bouncing back to continue helping the American Red Cross with life saving blood donations.


Jennifer’s lifetime work has been credited by the American Red Cross and was awarded in 2010 “The American Red Cross Hero Award.” Her lifetime work reached Washington, DC, a letter of recognition in the House of Congress and the House of Senate in Washington.


During the evening of August 7, 2010, Jennifer passed away as her heart stopped pumping blood.


This year is Jennifer’s 5 year Memorial service and our family has invited another hero’s family to participate with us in recruiting blood donors. Louie G. Smirnioudis of the Windmill Restaurant in Concord. Louie, a very kind and generous man, was well known to Community Service. Louie served over 600 families Thanksgiving dinner free to all who stopped into the Windmill. Louie’s sons continue this tradition on Thanksgiving. Louie has received many honors during his lifetime including “The American Red Cross hero award.”


We hope that you will participate in this blood drive August 13, 2015 , 11am-6pm, Thursday at the Grappone Conference Center, 70 Constitution Ave., Concord , NH. We offer free raffles, refreshments, entertainment provided by DJ Ken P, Massage students of the Seacoast Career  providing chair massages, the Concord Lion’s Club will be providing Operation Kid Sight eye screening.

Epsom Food Pantry


Well, another sweltering week.  We are fortunate to have a small air conditioner directly in the section where we store our food to keep it cool. 


The fresh veggies are being scoffed right up so if you have extras do not forget us.  Also, I just talked with Ken and he had some definite wants: soups (not tomato), jellies and jams,  peanut butter, and canned carrots and beets.


We now have over 90 Epsom families participating in our program.  I can tell you now that the response has been overwhelming, and a there is a great need in our town, especially some of our dear seniors. We are so delighted that we can help to make life easier for them. So, when you give, know that it is a blessing to our neighbors that need our support.


Until next time,

June Pease Quilt Exhibit, Gallery Walk And Trunk Show At Epsom Public Library


The Epsom Public library is pleased to present an exciting new exhibit featuring quilts by well-known fiber artist, June Pease.  The exhibit runs through September 5th, and may be viewed during regular library hours: Monday – Thursday, 10 am to 7 pm and Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm.  Additionally, be sure to mark your calendars for our not-to-be-missed quilt event and reception on Friday, August 28 at 7 pm, when June will give a gallery walk and present a trunk show featuring more quilts from her extensive body of work.


June began quilting in 1978, taking instruction from a local teacher. She had always enjoyed art and sewing and combined them with some original ideas to begin her 34-year tenure as quilter, designer, and teacher. Years of retail consulting have permitted her to balance the artistic and commercial aspects of her craft. 


June’s teaching opportunities have been self-initiated, in support of local guilds, and through a variety of retail quilting and fabric outlets. As an academically trained teacher and enthusiastic quilter she is able to create lively informative classes that appeal to a broad audience; young and old, contemporary and traditional. 


Appliqué and geometric piecework find their way equally into her work. Known for her variety of patterns, June is best appreciated for the creative uses of fabric and colors within the domain of commercially available patterns. Occasional but outstanding creative works round out a truly exceptional portfolio. 


June exhibits and consistently ribbons in guilds in New Hampshire and Vermont and, since 1990, at the annual Vermont Quilt Festival. She garnered special recognition at the East Coast Quilter’s Alliance - A Quilter’s Gathering 2001, where she was awarded the Publisher’s Award from The Quilter Magazine. Her creations have been offered through the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and Keepsake Quilting as well as many local craft outlets. “Starry Night,” June’s popular holiday creation, exhibited at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell Massachusetts. In her first North Carolina exhibitions June received Best of Show for one of her signature appliqué works, “In Celebration: A Marriage” and Judges Choice for the “Roseville Appliqué” at the 2004 Dixie Classic Fair 


Examples of June’s work can be found in Free Style Quilts by Susan Carlson and Sky Dyes by Mickey Lawler, both available through C&T Publishing. June’s creation, “Elm Leaves and Lilacs,” graces the cover and is a featured pattern in Jennifer Chiaverini’s latest pattern book, Return to Elm Creek (Fall 2005) currently available through C&T Publishing as well as in quilt shops. June is also a Quilt Consultant and Designer for Red Rooster Fabrics of New York City. The Quilter Magazine, summer issue 2003, featured one of the quilts, “Garden Steps,” designed for Red Rooster Fabrics. Also designed for Red Rooster, June’s “Mary Frances and Thimble Friends” quilt was featured in Designers Quarters, Spring, 2005, and her “English Trellis” quilt, using fabrics from the company’s Floral Fancy collection, was featured in McCall’s Quilting, Spring, 2005.


The variety of individual and commercial influences makes her uniquely qualified to showcase patterns, techniques and fabric alike.
