Dorcas Guild Plans Christmas Fair


Mark your calendar! The Dorcas Guild of the First Congregational Church, 24 Main Street, Pittsfield, is holding its annual Christmas Fair and Bake Sale Saturday, November 19, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.


There are many handmade items to choose from as well as gourmet products, baked goods, “Unique Boutique” and the wonderful silent auction. Corn chowder and sandwich lunch with homemade pies will also be available. Plan to be there for this handcraft goldmine!


Since the Dorcas Guild will NOT be holding its annual Craft Fair this year, final silent auction bids are due in no later than Sunday, December 4, 12:30-2:30, when the auction will end and the successful bidders will be notified.


Plenty of free parking in the rear (enter on Chestnut Street), and the church is wheelchair accessible. For more information, call the church office 435-7471.




Left to right- Pat Smith, Mickey King, Joyce Pearson and Catherine Snow.


Our TOPS chapter recently participated in Catherine Snow’s celebration of her 2 year KOPS status in reaching her weight goal.  KOPS stands for Keep Off Pounds Sensibly. Pat read a short tribute to Catherine about her contributions to TOPS. Fellow KOPS members lit candles in support and celebration.  It is inspirational to see members reach and maintain their goal.


Weight loss is often a challenging journey, but with diligence and support from TOPS members, it can be achieved.  TOPS is a weight loss support program which meets on Tuesdays 6:30 at Berakah on Fairview Rd. in Pittsfield.  We would be glad to have you join us. Please call Pat 435-5333 or Beth 435-7397.



Pumpkin ‘n Pine Fair

Save Saturday, November 5th for a charming, country church fair.  There will be fun, food and treasures at the Congregational Church of North Barnstead.  Bring family and friends, jump start your holiday list with unique gifts and join with others for a delicious lunch in the café.  Credit cards are accepted.  Childcare will be available for shoppers.


The fair has many favorite features including jewelry, collectibles, baked goods, holiday decorations, preserves and hand-made items.  Want a unique and colorful gift?  The table with handmade accessories and jewelry from Ghana is one of a kind! At least once a day this (photographed) elephant purse made from Ghanaian fabric receives a complement.  The silent auction is always a popular part of the fair.  This year there will be works of art by NH craft persons and gift certificates to many of our local services and restaurants.  Come see for yourself all the fair offers and go home with a treasure.


The Pumpkin & Pine Fair will be held between 9 am and 2 pm at the Congregational Church of North Barnstead.  It is located at 504 North Barnstead Road in Barnstead.  Just follow the signs!



Letter To The Editor


I think that this election is a very interesting one.


On one side you have a person who had four indictments, four people killed in Benghazi and lied about it, deleted 33,000 plus emails - after Congress asked for them, then month later another few thousand, on man killed (proven) from her emails.


The other side -

A very successful businessman. You might not like his actions/speech - but has worked around the word building up the business.


If you came from another planet and saw these facts, who would you vote for?


Another thing, if you are TRULY a Christian, you can’t vote for the first one.


Another, they have proven voter fraud in the last election. Dead people voted - is that fraud? They have their names.

C. Anderson’s Overview

Select Board Meeting 10/18/16

Submitted By Carl Anderson


We were short one Board member due to Carole Richardson’s absence. Larry, Gerard, Carl, and Jim were in attendance.


Bill Elkins presented the Board and the public with a request for a rate hike for Housing Standards Inspections. HSA is a self funding entity that relies solely on fees to cover their operating costs. Clearly the current rates do not cover all necessary expenses due to a couple of changes in the way HSA is billed by the Town for its share of services. A $10 increase for bi-annual inspections and $5 for re-inspections and no-shows was approved so that HSA remains solvent.


Clayton Wood reviewed the Zoning Board and Planning Board’s proposed rule changes which will go before voters in March. The Board didn’t hear anything that sounded too radical. There will be a Public Hearing Nov. 3 at 7PM in the Town Hall for anyone with an interest.


A parking ban waiver for a handicapped resident was approved.


A request by Police Chief Cain to promote Officer Joe McCormack to Sergeant was approved after Chief Cain’s recitation of his qualifications. As the Board member casting the sole vote opposing the advancement, I would simply say that while I had no reason to question Officer McCormack’s ability to do the job, I could not support more than an 8% increase in pay.


Chief Cain also requested permission to post for applicants for a full time patrolman’s position created by Officer McCormack’s advancement. With a clear understanding that creating a pool of potential candidates was not an approval to actually fill the position, this request was unanimously approved. A decision on filling this vacancy will be made at a later date, once we are into the budget process. Posting for applicants does not automatically mean someone will be hired.


We were brought up to speed on the Miskoe project at 37 & 33 Main St., which, subsequent to the recording of Bill’s deeds, is now well underway. No doubt this undertaking is the talk of the town, and ultimately should be a benefit all around, thanks to Mr. Miskoe’s generosity. 



Students at Pittsfield Elementary School were visited by Pittsfield Fire Chief Peter Pszonowsky, Kris Ahearn, Lt. Ken White, and Tim Henninger during Fire Prevention Month. They talked to the students about smoke alarms, exit plans, and showed them the fire suits that they wear.




Attention Users of BCEP Waste Facility

David’s House is connected with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and allows families of a children up to 18 years of age to stay for a $20.00 donation per night for as many nights as are necessary.


Please save up your tabs and turn them in at the BCEP Office. Thank You.
