25 Indian Rock Rd., Windham • 421-0678 Driveway Permit Issued by State Boxes of Girl Scout Cookies Arrive Overseas


submitted by Pelham Daisy Troop 10034 Troops serving in Iraq


and Afghanistan recently received an extra special treat during their mail call. Boxes of Girl Scout cookies arrived from Pelham!


by Barbara O’Brien The clearing of a parcel of land off Route 111 in Windham has resumed, following the issuance of a


driveway permit by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT). Route 111 (Indian Rock Road) is a State-owned roadway. Although the tree cutting itself was legal due to an intent-to-cut permit having been issued by Windham


Tax Assessor Rex Norman, trucks accessing the property were causing a problem prior to the work beginning. Following complaints from area residents, the DOT was notified and temporarily shut down the site until a driveway permit was issued by the State. Work did resume last week, but was then shut down a second time due to the lack of appropriate traffic control along that section of Route 111. According to Community Development Director Laura Scott, that problem has since been rectified and the tree cutting is once again underway. The land in question is owned by R&K Associates and is part of the property on which Shaw’s Supermarket is located. The land being cleared is between Shaw’s and the Village Green Shopping Center. The clearing involves approximately three to four acres. Scott said there are no known plans for developing the site after the timber is removed.


Scott also said that there appear to be no wetland violations, although the Department of


Environmental Services (DES) has been notified of the work being done at that site. According to Scott, the DES will not send anyone down to inspect the site unless the property owner asks for that to be done. Scott said that is a change from the former policy. Although many trees have been cut and trucked off-site, the tree stumps remain in the ground. Scott said she has asked that certain erosion control measures be installed to protect silt from running into the wetlands or out onto Route 111. At this point, the work being done at this site appears to be in compliance, Scott noted.


Te Daisies all earned their “Gift of Caring” badges, along with the badges for cookie sales


One of the mothers, Diane Chubb, has a good friend serving in Iraq, Major Crystal White. White is working with a unit, teachers and interpreters to assist in training the Iraqi troops so that they may better defend themselves. The Daisies asked VFW John H. Hargreaves


When cookies are ordered in January and February, Girl Scouts allows customers to purchase any number of boxes of cookies for Operation Cookie. Last year, with the public’s help, Girl Scouts donated more than 36,000 packages of cookies shipped by the NH Air National Guard to our servicewomen and servicemen all over the world. The local Girl Scout council determines where to send boxes of cookies, and is responsible for shipping the cookies out. However, Pelham Daisy Troop 10034 had very specific destinations in mind for cookies this year.

Girls in Pelham Daisy Troop 10034 shipped over 150 boxes of cookies to troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Te local VFW paid to ship them


Memorial Post 10722 in Pelham to get involved in cookie sales, and help with the cost of shipping the boxes directly to the specific overseas units. The local VFW post hosts the Daisy meetings in their building. Mark McCabe, VFW Post Commander, was delighted to participate. In fact, he asked to send cookies to a family friend serving in Afghanistan, Rodney Pratt. The Daisies sold over 150 boxes of cookies to be sent overseas. The VFW paid for the shipping. Over 70 boxes were sent to Iraq, and over 80 were shipped to Afghanistan. In Iraq, Major White reported that the cookies were a big hit. “I didn’t tell the others that they were coming, so when the boxes arrived it was a surprise to everyone here. Family and friends send us packages, but this time, everyone was able to get their own package with a couple of boxes of cookies. It was great!” Pratt reported similar reaction in Afghanistan.


“We all do appreciate what you guys have sent us; we gobbled them up! I think we even gained a little weight in some cases.” All of the girls in Troop 10034 received a “Gift of Caring” badge. Members of the VFW and the Ladies Auxiliary were on hand while McCabe presented each girl with her badge. “It brought me such great pride to present the Daisies with their badges. Part of being a community leader is always supporting a group of youngsters who want to get involved,” said McCabe.
