Saturday, November 19 The Amber Moonlit Night Dinner and Auction will be held at the Brookstone Park Event Center in Derry. In 2010, the Salem Animal Rescue League saved the lives of nearly 1,000 cats and dogs and worked to find them new permanent
homes. It’s challenging work, but until they all have a home, we must continue our mission. With support from our business community, we are able to save the lives of abused, abandoned and neglected animals and provide them with a safe environment and medical attention including the spaying and neutering of all animals. We’re also able to provide services to community members in need through our Safe Home Safe Pet, Meals on Wheels for Seniors,’ Pets and Pet Food Pantry programs.

A Recipe for a Thanksgiving Disaster
submitted by New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Who would think that the recipes you choose for
Thanksgiving could cause a problem, other than the heartburn you get from Aunt Martha’s green bean casserole. But fat from meat, sauces, baking goods, cooking oil, lard, margarine, shortening and butter can all be potential recipes for disaster-- a huge sewer problem.
It begins when these messy, greasy residues are
washed down the kitchen sink. As the water cools, these fatty, greasy and oily (FOG) foods solidify in the pipes. Over time they stick and coat the sewer lines that are designed to whisk away the unwanted liquids. As the FOGs build up, they can restrict and even stop the flow of water. The resulting back up of messy liquid could cause a serious disaster. The back up can damage property, ruin items and cancel holiday plans. These FOG problems can block the sewer pipes in
your house, in the street (if you are on a city sewer system) or in your private septic system. Once clogged most folks will have to hire a plumber to clean the pipes, an expense most of us would prefer to avoid. The good news is you can help avoid creating the problem in the first place. The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services encourages people to protect their plumbing, as well as their sewer or septic system by properly disposing of FOG. Here are some simple tips:

• Never pour oil or grease into a drain or toilet. • Scrape grease and food waste from plates, pots, pans, grills and kitchen utensils and put it into a trashcan.
• Small amounts of cooking oil, such as meat drippings, can be soaked up with a paper towel and thrown into the trash.
• Put baskets and strainers in sinks to catch food scraps. • Don’t put grease or meats in garbage disposals. • Let grease solidify in a container (preferably a sturdy closed-lid container, like a coffee can) before putting it into the trash.
• Mix larger amounts of cooking oil with an absorbent material like sawdust or kitty litter before putting in the garbage. Dispose of large amounts by dividing it over several collection days.
• Check to see if your community has a waste vegetable oil collection program. By being aware of the damage that FOG can do to
your home’s plumbing and septic system, and armed with these simple tips, you can rest a little easier this holiday season, knowing that your Currier & Ives picture- perfect holiday won’t be ruined by a plumbing disaster. For more environmental tips, visit the NH Department
