Epsom Historical Association Program


A reminder to mark your calendars!  The Epsom Historical Association will present a program entitled “Spring Fling Musical” on Sunday, April 3, at 2:00 p.m. at the Epsom Public Library. Everyone is invited to enjoy an afternoon of entertainment with favorite songs sung by local performers.  A time of refreshments and socializing will follow the program.  For more information, please call 736-4477.



On Wednesday, April 6 at 1:30 pm, the Epsom Public Library will be showing the movie, "Grease Live!"  Rydell High is back again only this time the filming was done on live television.  This electrifying production of the popular musical will knock your “bobby socks” off as you realize the complications of putting on a live performance and doing it extremely well.  It stars Julianne Hough and Aaron Tveit with a cameo appearance of Boys II Men.  Please join us for a rockin afternoon!



Epsom Food Pantry


Hi everybody! Sorry I missed last week.  This week was busy also. What with food pick ups and stocking shelves, our group was kept busy.  I had a chance to work hands-on this last Saturday at the Pantry. I am one of the pencil pushers of this group, so this was fun for me. Not that I did that much as that Saturday crew is awesome. A pleasure to watch, and so caring and nice to our members.


They seem to know the likes and dislikes of everyone. As to things we need: paper goods, jam and jellies, cake mixes and cereal for the kids, as well as grownups.


Now the weather is really showing signs of warmth a good deal of the time and that means GARDENS.  You all did a fantastic job last year. Lets do it again this year. Plant a row for the Food Pantry.  It’s just such a help and I like the children to see all the fresh veggies. There is no doubt the fruits and veggies are good for them.


Until next time,



P.S. I am behind in my thank you notes. Please know, those donations are put to good good use. Ken has been able to buy hamburg at a good price. Thank you, people!

On March 14, 2016 Members of the White Mountain Chapter of the Nam Knights of America Motorcycle Club Donated $1000.00 dollars to the  Michael Briggs Scholorship Fund at the Epsom Central School.


The Epsom Central school holds an annual Spaghetti Dinner to raise funds for the scholarship.  White Mountain Chapter President Sean Carrier explained that the Knights are an all-volunteer run 501c-3 non profit dedicated to raising funds to support local Veteran and Law Enforcement charities. “We strive to protect the memory of those who have passed and the service of those who are still doing the job.”


In the local area, the Nam Knights have supported several Police and Fire Department charities  in the towns of Epsom, Chichester, Pittsfield, Concord, and Loudon. You can see more of their charitable works at The Nam Knights of America M/C is made up of Honorably discharged Veterans and Active and Retired Law Enforcement Officers.





Dear Epsom Friends of the Library,

On behalf of the students and staff of Epsom Central School, I would like to thank-you for your very generous donation to our school library. We will be able to purchase books that the children have been anxious to read. We have some very voracious readers at Epsom Central School!


Thank-you again for caring about our students and enhancing our library program.


Most Sincerely,

Lisa Bauer

Epsom Central School Librarian





To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield, This week, the representatives from Merrimack County met to review the budget. The supervisors presented a budget with flat taxes, so after a few questions and explanations we approved it and a new contract with nursing home staff. Then we discussed the agreement to build the new courthouse, and approved it 35-2.


This week is “crossover,” when we finish with all House bills and send them to the Senate, and vice versa. We started with HB280, creating multi-use decal plates for veterans, which was hotly debated before not being killed, 103-249, and passed by acclamation. HB626, on energy infrastructure corridors, passed on a voice vote with no debate, as did Dan’s HB626, reforming the state civil forfeiture laws; HB1527, adding three part time positions to Administrative Services; HB1531, allowing the state house to be opened on weekends; HB1553, transferring the telecommunications unit from Safety to Information Technology; and HB238, on the workers’ comp appeals board. HB1551, establishing a scholarship program for high school graduates, went to interim study, also without debate.


My HB1243, on stormwater and sewer penalties, was tabled without opposition, since our ideas of how to fix the issues brought up by the second committee were far apart. HB602, on the use of drones, also had an extensive debate: it provides some very good protections from illicit drone use by private citizens and government agencies, but also has some difficult to enforce provisions and a federal preemption clause that I, and many others, found troubling. HB602 was not killed, 151-211, amended to prevent drones using tear gas or weapons, and passed , 250-114.


HB1681, decriminalizing needles with traces of drugs, was debated at length before passing 272-86.


Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than fit here.
