their annual craft fair, which was a two day event held on November 12 and 13. All proceeds benefited the church. The fair was held in the St. Pat’s Parish hall where several tables were set up, exhibiting a wide array of holiday season products. According to committee member Theresa Soucy, there were 23 crafters from Pelham, and surrounding towns, who set up to display their hand-made items.

jewelry, nick-knacks, clothing, photographs, candles and other festive, holiday items. The fair also included what Soucy referred to as the ‘curiosity shop’ or “white elephant” corner that featured donated items by the parishioners. In addition to the many tables of crafts was a baked-goods table that had many delectable items for sale – all of them prepared by and donated by the parishioners. Also available in the kitchen, amongst other items, was a deliciously aromatic turkey soup, of which many enjoyed while taking a break from perusing the crafts. On Saturday evening, there was a turkey dinner provided by the committee as part of the weekend festivities. Ronnie Jean and crew prepared and served the dinner and followed that up with a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning, again with all the proceeds to benefit St. Pat’s church. Additionally, there were raffles conducted where the committee gave away $100 cash in addition to three door prizes.

Business of the Year A Great Place to Work!
It gives us a great deal of pleasure to share the news that, for a second consecutive year, Enterprise Bank has been recognized as a Great Place to Work® in America! Our #8 ranking among all mid-sized companies in America represents a significant accomplishment for our company and employees.
This honor belongs to our employees. We greet this year’s announcement with a deep sense of gratitude. We are genuinely humbled by the collective excellence of our Enterprise Bankers.
The Great Place to Work Award is based on a poll of employees and measures the level of how much they “trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with.” Such a level of trust creates the foundation for our Enterprise Family and influences the way we treat each other and how we serve our customers. This positive energy goes out and comes back to us in the form of customer loyalty, friendship and a feeling of mutual accomplishment.

In the Business of the Year, representatives of Jackson Lumber & Millwork and Whittemore Company with presenter Gino Baroni
employees as soon as you touched the sidewalk at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. The keynote speaker, Chris Gardner, re-solidified the
characteristics that the Celebration of Excellence creates with his story of insurmountable odds over which he triumphed. An entrepreneur and the real-life inspiration for the Will Smith Oscar® nominated film, The Pursuit of Happyness. His story of homelessness to Wall Street success moved most was he explaining that his son was going to know him as his father. With 18 branches in Greater Lowell, the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire, our readers can see the Enterprise Bank’s community banking operations in their year old branch in Hudson and soon their Pelham office, or of course any of their other branches.
