FLOW, Strawberry Festival
and Book Fair in
Jeopardy - Volunteers Needed
Te Friends of the Library of
Windham (FLOW) are looking for volunteers who would like to join our 2011-2012 Board. It is our volunteers that have made FLOW the successful organization that it is today. We have been able to provide financial support to the Nesmith Library for its recent renovations. In addition, many wonderful programs have been paid for by FLOW as a way to enhance the offerings of the library. Programs over the past year included Card Making and Cupcakes, Museum of Science Night Sky, LEGO Block Party, Summer Reading Program Kick-Off Party featuring Steve Blunt, Teen Kick-Off Party featuring Escape Artist Peter Vuono, Kindermusik Programs with Rose Lemay, Lindsay and Her Puppet Pals, Granite State Zoo’s A World Full of Wild Tails, Yoga Play Programs with Annika Kleschinsky, NH Audubon’s Raptor Rapture, End of Summer Reading Program featuring Wayne from Maine, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Extravaganza!, Mini Fall Fun Festival, Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration, Alex the Jester, Author and Illustrator Jay Piscopo, Hampstead Stage Company Presents Alice in Wonderland, Lon Cerels’ Magic-Pallooza Family Show, Meet Author and Illustrator Marty Kelley, Go Batty with Jerry Schneider, Author Sarah Lamstein “I Like Your Buttons”, Art programs with Kristine Brock, Project Nature programs with Mary Doane, and the Toe Jam Variety Show.
Te annual Strawberry Festival and Book Fair, the town of Windham’s largest community event, is organized by the FLOW Board members. FLOW also offers scholarships to young adults in the community, as well as raises money to support museum passes, visits from authors, and other needs at our town’s library and schools. Te Friends currently have
several positions open on our Board including: President, Vice President, Membership, Newsletter, and Strawberry Festival. Positions can be shared, so join with a friend! If we cannot fill these positions, the future of FLOW is in jeopardy. Please consider joining our wonderful organization, so we can continue to offer exceptional programs for our library and community.
Also, joining the FLOW Board
is a perfect opportunity to meet new people and have lots of fun! So if you’ve ever taken advantage of all the great things our town library offers you or your family, please consider giving back by volunteering on the F.L.O.W Board.
Te Board meets once a month
in October, November, January, March, April, and May. Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 25 at 7 p.m. Te meeting will be held at the Nesmith Library and we hope that you will join us.

Reps. Griffin and Bates
I am writing to respond to Anthony DiFruscia’s letter, “Payment of Kindergarten,” in last week’s paper. He criticized hardworking State Representatives including Mary Griffin and my husband, David Bates, and some of the rest of the 13 that represent us in Concord. In July, the Speaker of the House
came to Windham for a town hall style meeting. In that meeting he credited Rep. Bates with working to restore the funding for kindergarten construction which was omitted from the budget. Governor Lynch had eliminated this funding completely in the budget he proposed in January. Windham will now receive $1 million towards the costs of our kindergarten construction project thanks to the Representatives that Mr. DiFruscia attacked in his letter. Our Representatives are the ones
the voters said “yes” to last fall. Our Reps said “yes” to reducing the deficit in the state budget, while securing kindergarten construction aid.
