Salem Exchange Club supports Area Pantry and Soup Kitchen
by Len Lathrop The Salem Exchange club is a vibrant group of local businesses and professional men and women who focus on child abuse prevention, youth programs, service to seniors and Americanism. The Salem Club is one of nearly 1,000 clubs with some 30,000 members across the United States and Puerto Rico who sponsor a vast variety of activities to improve their communities.
During their weekly meeting
on Thursday, August 25, they presented checks to the Sonshine Soup Kitchen and the St. Thomas Aquinas Food pantry to support their on-going struggle to feed those in need. Cynthia Dwyer, Executive Director for Sonshine Soup Kitchen explained that since 1989 they provided meals five days a week

Palmer Gas/Ermer Oil Holds Fourth Annual Blood Drive
submitted by Beth Innarelli Palmer Gas/Ermer Oil held their Fourth Annual Blood Drive last month
at their Atkinson showroom. Thirty one people came together to do their part to help with the major blood shortage that is being reported across the country. The drive, which was held with the cooperation of the American Red Cross, was primarily attended by Palmer Gas/Ermer Oil employees and was supported by Friendly’s Restaurant who provided coupons for a free half-gallon of ice cream for each donor. “I am very proud of our employees for their participation in the blood
drive” said Joe Trefethen, General Manager of Palmer Gas/Ermer Oil. “Their commitment to the community and helping others is inspiring.” Palmer Gas/Ermer Oil Company is a family-owned and operated propane and fuel oil company located in Atkinson, New Hampshire. Since 1932, its quality trained staff and licensed field technicians have provided the best in energy-saving products and services to over 61 communities throughout southern New Hampshire.

Charitable Foundation, BJ’s supports and enhances programs that provide vital services within each community. We focus primarily on children and families with the goal of creating a positive, long-lasting impact. “BJ’s is continually growing its community outreach programs, developing new and innovative approaches to charitable giving in the hope that we will be able to reach more people and provide meaningful support that enriches the lives of those in need” said Danielle Salvetti, community relations specialist for BJ’s Wholesale Club. Due to recent federal
government school budget cuts, BJ’s reached out to the Soule School and asked Principal Parrill to compile a “wish list” of items the school may need throughout the year that may not be covered by the school budget. In an effort to kick the school year off fully stocked BJ’s donated items from Clorox Wipes to electric pencil sharpeners for the students and staff.
BJ’s and Soule School Partnership

Since the opening of our first Club in 1984, BJ’s Wholesale Club has taken great pride in being a good corporate citizen. We’ve expressed that pride through our dedication to giving back to the communities we serve. This year marks to 15th Anniversary of the BJ’s Wholesale Club Adopt-A-School program and over the years, it has expanded to help schools in 15 states.

BJ’s has “adopted” the Soule School for the 2011-2012
school year and is dedicated to a community partnership in an effort to strengthen the quality of education through programs to assist with student enrichment. Through charitable giving, community relations programs, product donations and grants from BJ’s
