Gilmanton Year-Round Library To Close Its Doors


With great sadness the Gilmanton Year-Round Library Board of Directors announces that the request for funding did not pass on March 12, 2013. The warrant article request was for $45,000 to partially support the library’s $70,500 operating budget.


As a result of prior fund raising efforts, the doors will remain open until November 1, 2013. Of course, the library will graciously continue to accept any contributions that may allow it to extend operations beyond that date.


The board and library staff are thankful to all those who supported the funding. The Board of Directors invites patrons and other community members to join us on March 28th at 7:00 p.m. to brainstorm fund raising options. We welcome all your support and ideas.



Waring Named To Tilton School Honor Roll


Nicholas Waring (Gilmanton Iron Works, N.H.), the son of Glen and Jody Waring and a freshman at Tilton School, has been named to the Academic Honor Roll for the first semester at Tilton School.


To be included on the Academic Achievement Honor Roll, students must demonstrate evidence of learning that exceeds the basic standards (ES) in all courses, while significantly exceeding the standard (SES) in at least one of these courses. Habits of Mind grades must at a minimum meet the expected standard.


Waring was also recently named the Most Valuable Player for the school’s boy’s varsity B hockey team.





Dear Gilmanton residents:

I want to thank-you for your support on election day.  A candidate cannot run for election without a lot of help. People calling people, letters to the editor, residents placing signs, voters standing with you in front of the Academy, I thank you all. 


I understand the responsibilities of being a member of the BOS, and I will represent your best interest. I look forward to serving all of you, for the next three years. As a voter kindly reminded me, I have only four weeks before you read a summary of the Board’s activities.

GCC Food Pantry And Thrift Shop News


The GCC Food Pantry has begun collecting items for our Easter Food Baskets as well as items for the “Bunny Baskets” for the children of families in need in our community.  Some suggested food items would be:  bottled juice, cereal, breakfast muffin mix, ground or instant coffee, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, stuffing, canned pineapple, canned peas, canned carrots, canned green beans, canned corn, 1-lb boxes of sugar, cake mixes, and frosting. Some suggested items for the “bunny baskets” would be: jump ropes, Play-doh, small balls, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, crayons, colored pencils, coloring books, small cars & trucks, Easter grass, and Easter candy. We are also looking for monetary donations to purchase the above items we don’t receive and also to purchase the perishable items which go into our food baskets. All items to be included in the baskets need to be received at the pantry by March 22nd. The items collected for the food baskets will also be counted towards our dollar amount total in the Feinstein Challenge which runs from March 1st to April 30th.


We will be starting out the spring and summer fashion season with a fabulous $10 Bag Sale. Our supply of spring and summer clothing and accessories has grown enormously over the winter and we need to thin out, so come on down and grab a $10 Bag or 2 of really great clothing and accessories for the whole family.  You will be amazed by our quality, we are not your usual thrift shop, and the large  selection available for everyone from infant to adults. The spring and summer Bag Sale will run from Monday, March 18th to Saturday April 6th.


As always, if you wish to make a donation of food or clothing to the GCC Food Pantry and Thrift Shop, we ask that you bring it to the shop during our business hours. Food can be left in one of the collection boxes located at the Academy Building, the Gilmanton School or the Year Round Library.  Checks can be mailed to us at PO Box 6, Gilmanton Iron Works, 03837.  We are located on Route 140 in Gilmanton Iron Works, across from the Iron Works Market. We are open on Monday  1pm – 5pm, Wednesday 3pm – 7pm, and Saturday 10am – 2pm. Parking is located in the Gilmanton Community Church parking lot just west of the shop.


We thank you for your continued support of the Food Pantry and all of its programs.  Remember that sales from the Thrift Shop go to support the Pantry.



GCC Food Pantry Feinstein Challenge


Again this year, Alan Shawn Feinstein will be dividing $1 million among food agencies like the GCC Food Pantry in Gilmanton Iron Works. Mr. Feinstein does this each year to inspire the public to donate to local pantries during those months in which food supplies and funds can run very low.  


Mr. Feinstein’s challenge is very specific and goes like this: between March 1st and April 30th any donations of food or money can be counted towards the challenge if they are designated as such by the donor.  In other words, any money you may donate to the GCC Food Pantry must indicate in the check memo that it is for the Feinstein Challenge or if donating cash you must include a note stating it is for the challenge. All donations of food will be counted with each item representing $1.00. All donations received by us must be documented with the amount and the name of the person or organization making the donation.


This is the first year that the GCC Food Pantry has participated in this wonderful program of giving and we hope that you will help us to make it a great success by donating food items or money between March 1st and April 30th.  We have food collection boxes located at the Academy Building in the Corners, at the Year Round Library and the Gilmanton School will also be collecting food items.  You are also able to bring your donations directly to the GCC Food Pantry during our business hours which are:  Monday 1 – 5 PM,  Wednesday  3 – 7 PM,  and Saturday 10 – 2 PM. 


Please remember that even the smallest donations when gathered together can make a large impact in the life of someone who is food insecure and will also help to make our 1st year doing the Feinstein Challenge a huge success.  Let’s see how much we can raise together!
