Area Businesses Join In The Drive To Support

The Gilmanton Year-Round Library


Fund-raising events continue as the Gilmanton Year-Round Library Board and friends work to keep the Library open through the current fiscal year.  Two area businesses offer special opportunities to enjoy a meal while supporting the Library.


Patrick’s Pub and Eatery, in Gilford, invites Library patrons and supporters to have lunch or dinner at Patrick’s.   Stop by during the week of September 8-12, and tell your server that you are there to support the Library; 25% of your food purchase will go to support the Library.


The Gilmanton Winery will serve dinner to Library supporters on Saturday, September 14, at 6 pm.  Reservations are necessary and the cost is $50 per person. The  menu includes appetizers, soup, salad, roast beef, vegetables, all topped off with apple pie and ice cream. Seating is limited so make your reservation with payment to Gilmanton Year-Round Library. For details, check the Library’s website:



GCC Food Pantry And Thrift Shop News


Thank you to everyone who donated items or money to help the GCC Food Pantry put together much needed school supplies for Gilmanton students in need.  We, as always, appreciate all that you do to help out your neighbors in need.  With your support we were able to help out 26 students who attend either Gilmanton School or Gilford High School. Thank you so very much.


With back to school comes a 50% Off sale at the Thrift Shop. The sale began on Monday, August 26th and will end on Saturday, September 14th. All items in the shop with a Blue or Yellow barb are 50% Off.  We have our fall and winter clothing and accessories out in the shop now. So come on in and find some great bargains for the entire family from now until Saturday, September 14th. Come in and check out our Great  selection of soccer cleats for all the athletes in your family.


We are always looking for more volunteers at the GCC Food Pantry and Thrift Shop.  If you would like to help us out by volunteering, please stop by the shop or call Jane Sisti at 364-7437.  We thank all of our current and past volunteers for helping us out with this truly great mission.


We would like to remind you that the Thrift Shop only accepts clothing and wearable accessories excluding jewelry.  Please Do Not leave bags or boxes of clothing outside the pantry door. Items have recently been left outside and gotten wet or animals have gotten into the bags and the clothing has been damaged and unusable. So please, we appreciate your donations, but ask that you bring them to the shop during our business hours. Thank you for your understanding.


Food donations can be left in one of the collection boxes located at the Academy Building, the Gilmanton School or the Year Round Library or brought to the pantry during business hours.  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 1 pm – 5 pm, Wednesday 3 pm – 7 pm, and Saturday 10 am – 2 pm. Parking is located in the Gilmanton Community Church parking lot just west of the shop.



Thank You for Old Home Day Support


The members of the American Legion Auxiliary, Ellis-Geddes-Levitt Unit #102 of Gilmanton would like to thank all of the planners, workers and sponsors of the 2013 Gilmanton Old Home Day for providing such a wonderful community event.  


Seventy-four visitors signed our Guest Book on Old Home Day; and our heartfelt thanks go to all of those who stopped by and purchased some of our delicious home-baked goods and took a chance on our raffle.  Judy Williams won the Linen Basket, Ginny Stanley won the hand-knitted afghan and Betty Derby won the Lasso Golf/Bean Bag Toss Game Combo.  


This year the Unit show-cased their new Veterans project, Veterans at Rest in Gilmanton, NH.  The purpose is to locate the graves of Veterans in Gilmanton and to work closely with the Gilmanton American Legion Post for the placement of flags so that every Veteran is duly honored for their service to America.  This is truly a Community Project where everyone can be involved.  Contact our Unit at P.O. Box 56, Gilmanton, NH or [email protected] and see if your passed Veteran family and friends are included. 


Your generous support to the Unit continues to provide assistance to our local Veterans and their families.
