Food Pantry of Pelham at St. Patrick’s Parish Honors Capital Donors

submitted by Marian O’Brien The Food Pantry of Pelham at St. Patrick’s Parish has been in operation in its new location now since last February. Reverend Anthony Kuzia, Pastor; Coordinator Cheryl Brunelle; and a number of the pantry volunteers gathered on Tuesday, June 14, to honor some very special people and organizations whose financial donations made the relocation and renovation possible. Father Anthony recalled the time when last October it was discovered that the former food pantry, a used office trailer, was not structurally sound. A new facility would have to be located. “These people we honor tonight provided the seed money that was necessary to make this project possible. On behalf of the many who are served by this food pantry, I thank you.”

Present for the presentation of the plaque were

Reverend Anthony F. Kuzia, CM, Pastor of St. Patrick’s Parish; Cheryl Brunelle, Coordinator of the Pelham Food Pantry; Frank Sullivan of the Pelham Good Neighbor Fund; and Rick Gagne

Rick Gagne and Frank Sullivan of the Pelham Good Neighbor Fund. Absent were George Harris of the Harris’ Pelham Inn, John Suprenant of Assured Glass and Aluminum, and Neil Fineman of the Pelham Plaza Corporation.

Waiver Granted for Use of Lights at Park

by Barbara O’Brien The decision wasn’t unanimous, but Windham Selectmen did grant a

waiver that will allow the lights on the athletic field at Griffin Park to stay on later than usual … but only for one special occasion. Community Development Director Laura Scott made the request during the selectmen’s June 6 meeting, explaining that the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce, of which Windham is a member, would be holding an “After Hours” event on July 20. Although most of the festivities will take place at the Searles School and Chapel on Range Road in Windham, there will be a pickup softball game scheduled afterward at Griffin Park.

Scott said, weather permitting, that she anticipates that the softball game will begin about 8 p.m. and will be finished before 9:30 p.m. Current regulations call for the lights at Griffin Park to be doused no later than 9 p.m. Scott said she had already spoken with the members of the Windham Recreation Committee and received their unanimous approval for the one-half hour extension of lighting for July 20.

Outdoors Fuel Safety Tips

Charlie with Gasoline and diesel may be spilled during refueling of boats

and ATVs. Spills harm aquatic and plant life, create a safety hazard, and waste money. Fill fuel tanks to no more than 90- percent capacity—especially in summer—as fuel drawn from cool underground storage tanks will expand as it warms up aboard your equipment. If your boat is equipped with a power ventilation system, turn it on for at least four minutes after fueling and before starting your engine to remove gas vapors in the bilge.

Rather than filling your fuel tank upon returning, wait and fill it just before leaving on your next trip. This practice will reduce spills due to thermal expansion because the fuel will be used before it has a chance to warm up. It also reduces spills while trailering. Fill portable tanks where spills are less likely to occur and easier to clean up. Slow down at the beginning and end of fueling to reduce spills. Have a safe and happy summer!

Association will be in charge of the softball competition, Scott said. “This is a great opportunity for adults to use the facility,” Scott emphasized. “It sounds like a fun event,” Selectman Kathleen DiFruscia commented. The only selectman who voted against the 30-minute lighting extension

was Roger Hohenberger, who said he fears the exception will set a precedent, resulting in more groups asking for the lights to be left on later in the evening. “I want to stay with the original agreement,” Hohenberger said.

Scott said that she was not aware of any complaints about the lighting from nearby neighbors. The Chamber of Commerce event will be open to the general public. The final vote on allowing the one night of later lighting was 3 to 1.

Voting in favor were Vice Chairman Bruce Breton, Kathleen DiFruscia, and Phil LoChiatto. Chairman Ross McLeod abstained from voting, due to his connection to Windham sports organizations. Only Roger Hohenberger voted against allowing the half-hour waiver.

and others will move on to Windham Center School for their third-grade classes. The change is being made due to space constraints at Center School. As third graders were not previously housed at Golden Brook School, there is a lack of appropriate reading materials for eight-year-olds. Knowing that any extra money would be hard to come by to purchase more books for Golden Brook, members of the Nesmith Library’s “Friends of the Library” decided to offer a helping hand. On June 7, Jennifer Simmons, president of the Friends of the Library, presented Golden Brook Principal Debra Armfield with a check for $500 for the specific purpose of purchasing third-grade reading materials. “One of our primary goals is to promote literacy within the community,” Simmons said. Armfield accepted the donation with gratitude, saying that they were prepared for adding new books to the Golden Brook library, thanks to some new shelving units that have been donated to the school.
