Well, we are into the new year at TOPS with a nice weight loss. Our TOPS Best Loser of the week was Suzie and our KOPS was Mickey. We have two Miss Angels, Suzie and Joyce. Come on ladies, you are both so close to your goals.


It was Royalty this past Tuesday with achievement awards handed out for weight loss for the month.Some tips that were shared  about how they had lost their weight were, never go back for seconds, park your car further away and walk when you are going into a building, and don’t deprive yourself from certain foods. If you use portion control and don’t over eat, then the cravings for that certain food will not be there. It was also mentioned that if you leave food around for you to see, then you are in control of food and not letting the food control you. And let’s face it, we know that it’s all about control and choices. Every day we face choices and what we do with our choice makes us who we are. So I say it’s a new year and we are off to a good start and to take it day by day.


If anyone is interested in joining us, we meet on Tuesday nights at 5:30 for a weigh-in and at 6:30 for our meeting at the Berakah home on Fairview Rd. in Pittsfield. Any questions please call Janis White at 603-491-5532 or Claire Coll at 435-7271. We always welcome new members. So, if you are looking for a fresh new year and want to join a support weight loss group, come on out and sit for a visit. Hope everyone has a good week and see you all lighter next week!

The Suncook Valley Area Lions Club (serving the Pittsfield/Barnstead Area) is Growing!    We have been working on increasing our membership and extended an invitation to the public for anyone interested in joining our Club to attend the November 10th meeting.  As an additional incentive, the meeting was on the eve of Veterans Day and to show appreciation for the sacrifices made by our military men and women, any Veteran joining the club at the Nov. meeting will have their dues paid by the Lions Club through July 1, 2015.  ELEVEN New members answered our call.  Our current membership was at 16 so 11 NEW members was a great boost!


On December 15, 2014,  the new members were inducted into our Club.  Past District Governor, William Brown oversaw the Installation Ceremony with help from distinguished guests, District Governor- Antoinette Olden, CST, Stanley Brothers and Judi and Dick Gibson from the Epsom-Chichester Lions Club.  A delicious pot-luck dinner was served and a special thank you to King Lion, Bob Wharem for the use of his Stars & Stripes Auction Hall for the event.


Congratulations to the newest members of the Suncook Valley Area Lions Club - Jill Walsh, Eleanor Vien, Michelyn Vien, Laurie Wharem, Ronald Vien, David Dansereau, Randy Vien, Luke Koladish, William Pellon, Scott Waddle, Tina Waddle and Rev. David Stasiak.

James Elwyn Donini, Sr.


James E. Donini, Sr., 76, of Pittsfield, passed away on January 2, 2015, at Concord Hospital.  Jim was born in Portsmouth and was the son of Tancredi and Rita Donini.  After Rita’s death, Tancredi was remarried to Maybel le Donini, who was a big part of Jim’s life.


Jim attended and graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1956.  He joined the US Navy after graduation and proudly served until 1963.  He was a cold war sailor aboard the U.S.S Croaker during the Vietnam War era.  He also served aboard the U.S.S Albacore and held the rank of Electrician’s Mate 2nd class.  After being honorably discharged, Jim went to work at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard where he worked for over two decades.  He retired from the Navy Yard as a foreman electrician.  After retirement, Jim continued to do electrical work and hold his master electrician licenses in both New Hampshire and Maine until his death.   


Jim enjoyed hunting, working around his property, and spending time at his land in Maine.  He was dedicated to his membership in the American Legion and he kept connected to several life-long friendships.


Jim is survived by his twin children: daughter Erin Commerford and her husband, Michael of Bow, son James E. Donini, Jr., and his wife Casey, of Pittsfield, four grandsons: Patrick, Daniel, Biagio, and Demarco, and a step-daughter: Kris Allfrey and her husband, Rick Cohoon, of Williston, Florida.
