Valley Artisans Contributors


This month at Valley Artisans we are happy to announce two Artisans of the Month. Flo Parlangeli our Plein Air painter and beader and Donna Tracy who makes wonderful soaps and body products.


Florence Mae Parlangeli, born and raised in New Rochelle, NY, grew up as a dancer, with a love of the arts. She is a graduate of The State University of NY with a degree in Advertising Art and Design, with formal training in fine art. She enjoyed her direct marketing careers with New York Life Ins. Co and NEBS in Groton, Ma.


Flo is retired from her position as Creative Services Coordinator at Concord Litho.


Flo received a prestigious award when chosen as one of five Emerging Master Painters by the Light Chasers: Plein Air Painters of the Suncoast.  She is also active with The Peace River Painters of Charlotte County.


Flo greatly enjoys her memberships in New Hampshire and Maine Plein Air groups, producing dramatic original oil and acrylic works.  She’s a member of the NH Women’s Caucus for the Arts and has four paintings at 550 Gallery on Elm St., Manchester Art Association. She is also an exhibiting member of the Bedford Craftworkers Guild, showing her art and jewelry. Two of her paintings were selected for the Comfort and Joy exhibit at Twiggs Gallery in Boscawen. There will be a reception on Dec. 9th of the Birds of a Feather Art Group, at the Audubon Society in Auburn where she will show four of her oil paintings. Valley Artisans displays her Art and Beadwork.


Donna Tracy of Deerfield, created “Dear Me Suds” Soaps and Lotions to provide her family and the public with quality soaps and lotions. Her creative products and packaging make lovely gifts for those who want to use natural products or who have sensitive skin.


Beautifully presented stress-relieving and molded soaps, dead-sea bath salts, herbal bath tea bags, hand and body lotions, dream pillows and massage oils are just some of her line of natural self-care products.


A lady of many talents, Donna also knits cozy warm scarves.


Both Flo and Donna welcome you to Valley Artisans to see their many outstanding products.


Flo is donating two of her products for the monthy drawing and Donna will surprise us with one of hers.


We have three rooms filled with NH crafters’ work. We are open 7 days a week for the holiday season.  Our hours are 10AM - 6PM. So please stop by and make your holiday shopping one of a kind.





To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

My race for Speaker ended last week, at the Republican caucus, where we nominated current Speaker Shawn Jasper for re-election. I was a bit disappointed that we were so divided – the voting was very close. Still, a friend mentioned that we should be glad almost half the caucus was conservative, much increased from when he served!


This week we “organized” - got sworn in and elected our officers. Rumors of a coup, like that of two years ago, proved groundless and Speaker Jasper was re-elected on the first ballot, on a basically party-line vote. All the remaining elections were uncontested, as we re-elected our Clerk and Sergeant at Arms. With the Senate, we re-elected the Secretary of State and Treasurer, also unanimously.


There won’t be much legislative activity until January; we are revising and signing off our bills, and leadership works on committee assignments for people and bills. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!



Carol McGuire
