Letter To The Editor
This is to thank the Board of Selectmen for their diligence in
working to corral costs and for maintaining fiscal discipline.
Retirees and others on a fixed income should be particularly
grateful for the almost 10% reduction in the local tax rate; I know
that I am.
Congratulations Pack 242!
Thanks to the generosity of our community and the hard work of our
boys and their families, Pack 242 collected 663 items of
nonperishable food items Nov. 9 as part of the Scouting for Food
Scouts around the state hung signs on doors November 2 which
promised they would return November 9 to pick up nonperishable food
items. As part of our Good Turn project, this year’s “Scouting for
Food” effort will benefit more than 150 pantries, kitchens and
closets throughout New Hampshire.
