The Great Bedtime Pajama Drive

submitted by Kelli Searles-Allen, Nottingham West School Ten years ago, one New York woman noticed children in shelters and group homes sleeping in their clothes because they didn’t own even one pair of pajamas. She filled a shopping bag with new sleepwear and books and began to hand them out to the youngsters, many of whom were abused, abandoned, or neglected. Her non- profit Pajama Program marks its first decade of service in 2011. The celebration kicks off this fall with a series of events beginning in October. Pajama Program’s mission becomes more urgent during the period it identifies as “Danger Season”—when the thermostat dips and the harsh winter months settle in. Starting October 1, Pajama Program works hard to heighten the public’s awareness of the need to keep these at risk children in warm, clean nighttime clothing and with a bedtime book to allay their fears. “For so many needy and abused children, winter means endless cold and scary nights,” explains Pajama Program founder Genevieve Piturro. “The winter season is a particularly critical time when these children are most vulnerable to serious colds and illnesses. Warm, clean pajamas help to protect them against night chills and harmful conditions. Emotionally, pajamas are a hug for children who feel lost and alone.” The books the children read at bedtime go a long way in

improving their reading level as well. Most have been removed from school for long periods of time and do not have access to books, and their grade reading level is far lower than their peers. With this in mind, Nottingham West School’s first graders in Mrs. Searles-Allen’s class took on the challenge, and during the month

of November, they collected pajamas for the non-profit Pajama Program and helped by collecting 22 pairs of new pajamas to be donated to this successful program. The wonderful news is not only will the pajamas go to children in need, but with the help of Scholastic books for each pajama set we donate, they will match it with a new book. So, these children will get both a warm set of pajamas and a book for bedtime reading! We are very proud of the true community of givers we have here in our fabulous classroom. The children have all expressed how lucky and happy they feel to be giving these pajamas.

Troop 252 Boy Scouts receive gratitude from the Kiwanis for the clean-up of the Pumpkin Fest area: Mike Burton, Chris Gleason, Kyle Kostro (receiving the check), Stephen Burton, Shane Sharland, Garrett Frohman, and John Kostro, Assistant Scoutmaster

During the weekend of PumpkinFest, Troop 252 Boy Scouts camped down behind the Hills House. They kept an eye on the property, administered first aid to an injured women, and were seen helping out the vendors. While mingling with the crowd, the Scouts drank lots of hot cocoa to stay warm in the chilly fall air. They especially enjoyed the music from the live bands that came to play for the crowd. As each day wound down, the Scouts took to the field to clean up any trash and to empty barrels to get ready for the next day. Thank you from Troop 252 to the Kiwanis for inviting the Scouts to take part in this event.

Representative Pamela Tucker, entering her second term in the NH House, added, “I would like to thank Bill for this opportunity and look forward to serving the citizens of our state and working with every member of the House and tackling our state’s economic issues.” “I am pleased to accept the position of Speaker Pro Tempore and look forward to advancing the Republican agenda in the House. I remain confident that all Republicans can work together toward solving the looming budget crisis in our state,” concluded Chandler, entering his 15th term in the House.

1x3 Hudson’s Winter Parking Ban is in Effect

submitted by Hudson Police Department The Hudson Police Department wants to remind all citizens that beginning on December 1, a town-wide winter parking ban goes into effect. This means that vehicles are not allowed to be parked on public streets between the hours of 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. The reason for this parking ban is to enable the Department of Public Works (DPW) to remove snow properly from the roadways in the event of an overnight snowstorm. Vehicles parked overnight on the roadways make it very difficult for DPW workers to remove the snow. This creates traffic issues and road hazards for those who commute to work during the morning hours. The Hudson Police Department will be issuing parking citations in the amount of $20 for those parked on public roadways between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. If the fine is not paid within 72 hours of the date issued, you may be summonsed to appear in Nashua District Court, and may be subject to pay the maximum fine allowed by law. Anyone cited for this parking violation should make their check payable to the Town of Hudson, New Hampshire. All dates and fines schedules are in accordance with TOV 317-17, “All-Night Parking in Winter,” as defined in the Code of the Town of Hudson, New Hampshire.

The Hudson Police Department would like to thank you in advance for not parking on the streets beginning December 1. The winter parking ban ends on March 30, 2011.

comfortable at home is essential to encourage children to brush. Allowing children more involvement in choosing the kind of toothpaste and toothbrush is one step towards this end. Another step would involve enlistment of an older sibling to serve as a mentor for the younger child; helping them brush and floss as well as choosing proper snack foods. Still another step would involve weekly "smile inspections" by the parent(s). Monitoring oral hygiene techniques is a good idea with rewards for extra effort providing the incentive. Children are our primary targets towards

better dental care. Children with a good attitude towards oral care become an adult with a commitment to oral health.
