by Robyn Hatch Monthly, the Salem Senior Center holds

a Tea Party for all its members. This month, Robin Steriti sang musical memories to a crowd of 68 ladies. A complete mixture of songs was presented from standards, cabaret to geographical stuff. Robin sang her heart out to everyone by walking among the crowd, and changing hats every song. Much clapping and singing, drinking tea and munching cookies took place for at least an hour. This was a special day to just sing and have a good time.

submitted by Laurel Redden, Salem Family Resources In a recent poll commissioned by Every Child Matters and conducted by Mason Dixon Polling and Research, 65 percent of NH voters felt that conditions have gotten worse for children in the last decade; 63 percent of likely voters agree with the statement that “Our political leaders in Washington DC are not doing enough to ensure the health, education and well being of children today.“ These numbers reflect that New Hampshire residents care deeply about our children. I write to let you know about an important opportunity for the people of Claremont, Hanover and surrounding New Hampshire and Vermont communities to lend their voices to awaken America to the needs of children. On November 1-3, the National Movement for Children is coming to New Hampshire. On November 1, at 6 p.m.,Prevent

Child Abuse America CEO and President, Jim Hmurovich will facilitate a Town Hall Meeting at Salem High School. He will invite people to share their ideas about how we can ensure that every child has an equal opportunity for healthy growth and development. Participants’ responses will be combined with those

from similar events happening around the country and be used to develop a strategy for America’s children. This strategy will include actions for every individual, business, faith community, and government. Parents, community members and everyone who cares about children is invited to attend. New England planning partners include: New Hampshire Children’s Trust, Massachusetts Citizens for Children, Salem Family Resources – Success by 6, Every Child Matters, Child and Family Services, Family Support NH, and the NH Infant Mental Health Association. Join us for this important event. Receive more information about this or the other events happening throughout New Hampshire by calling 224-1279 e-mailing or visiting No RSVP is required. Together we know we will be able to fulfill our country’s promises to each and every child, helping to ensure that every child has a meaningful opportunity to truly realize his or her potential.

have fulfilled the requirements needed to earn their Silver Award. They also made new friends and met a lot of good people along the way. The girls would like to thank Roland Theberge and the MLPA for their consideration and leadership throughout this project. A big thank you to Tucker Matte. He gave over 40 hours of his own time to help and dealt with some of the heavier parts of the project. Thank you, Andover Corporation, for purchasing two picnic tables that will be added to the area along with the one that Troop 12379 has purchased. Thank you to the Picnic Table Factory for their gift, which made this purchase affordable to us, and for delivering the tables directly to the beach. Thank you to Brian McCarron, Al LaFauci and the many others for stopping and lending a helping hand or an encouraging word. Adding to the fun … There is something to be said for the youth of the Town of Salem. There is nothing that they cannot do and there is little to keep them from accomplishing great things when they put their minds to it. When his sister’s Girl Scout troop planned a big project on the town

beach on Millville Lake, Tucker knew that he did not want to just sit back and watch these kids work. He wanted to get involved. The troop had to work over 150 hours of service on the property on Millville Circle. Tucker had ample time to challenge these kids and challenge himself in the process. He decided that they could use another pair of strong hands working on this massive property. So he set out to do jobs that the girls would not necessarily want to add to their list of choirs. Then he set out to accomplish his own 40 hours of service. His mom agreed to give her own time to help him meet this goal. Working together, they were able to put in over 100 hours of service time and had a great time racing against the girls as they worked toward the same goal. The Millville Lake beachfront is looking better

than ever. Tucker even ventured into the water to retrieve rocks that had been thrown in to the lake. Collecting the larger rocks, he cemented his efforts into a walkway off of the retaining wall that the girl scouts had rebuilt. It is a beautiful addition to the property. His efforts have helped to make a big difference in the look and usability of the property.
