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!
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.

funds for the scholarship. White Mountain Chapter President

memory of those who have passed and the service of those who are
still doing the job.”

Pittsfield, Concord, and Loudon. You can see more of their
charitable works at WMC.NKNewhampshire.com The Nam Knights of
America M/C is made up of Honorably discharged Veterans and Active

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

newsletter, with more details than fit here.
