Thank you for the
Gilmanton PTA Holiday Craft Fair!
American Legion Auxiliary, Ellis-Geddes-Levitt Gilmanton Unit #102
extends its appreciation to the Gilmanton PTA for hosting the recent
Gilmanton Holiday Craft Fair; and to our many friends and supporters
who purchased great home-baked items from the Auxiliary.
Members were present to provide visitors with information on our
organization and projects including “Veterans at Rest in Gilmanton”;
the goal of which is to locate and document all veteran burials in
Gilmanton to ensure that the sites receive proper honor.
The Mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to Further
Americanism and to Support Veterans, Military, their Families and
Community. Fund-raising is essential to the support we are
able to provide during the year and the Gilmanton Holiday Craft Fair
is a wonderful community event.
Be sure to join us in Gilmanton next year. We will be at the
Memorial Day Services, Old Home Day and the Holiday Craft Fair!

Veterans Projects, membership or donation opportunities, contact us

Wishing you a very safe and warm Holiday

Gilmanton Food Pantry And Thrift Shop News
We at the Gilmanton Food Pantry & Thrift Shop would like to take
this opportunity to thank everyone who made donations toward
Thanksgiving Food Baskets. If, in our haste, we did not get
anyone’s name and address for a formal thank you note, please accept
our apology and grateful appreciation.
We will still be collecting food items for Christmas baskets.
If you were unable to donate for Thanksgiving, but would still like
an opportunity to help your neighbors, Christmas is almost here.
We try to provide a little extra at Christmas to help families
provide nutritious meals and snacks while the children are on School
All during the month of December the Gilmanton Thrift Shop will
feature our ever popular bag sale. This would be a great
opportunity to spruce up the winter wardrobe or maybe even do some
Christmas shopping. Fill an entire bag for only $7. You
would be surprised as to how much you can get in to one of our paper
Items included in our Christmas food baskets include stuffing mix,
cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, canned vegetables and fruit, bottled
juice, sugar, coffee, cocoa, breakfast muffin mix, pickles, olives,
cake mixes, and frosting. Donations of money to purchase
butter/margarine, milk, eggs, fresh fruit, potatoes, and onions are
greatly appreciated. Turkeys or ham are the highlight of our
holiday baskets, thus a donation of a turkey or a ham would be a
most generous donation and greatly appreciated.
Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at the Academy
building, the Year Round Library, and at the Pantry during open
hours. Monetary donations may be brought to the Pantry or
mailed to Post Office Box 16, Gilmanton, N. H. 03237.
