Salem Community Patriot | November 25, 2011 - 5 Historical Society Presents ‘Liberty is Our Motto’ Immediate family (Judson, Abby, Asa and Jess) Steve Blunt, presenter Singing original songs

by Robyn Hatch The Salem Historical Society presented “Liberty is Our Motto” by Steve Blunt on November 8. He is a song and storyteller sponsored by the NH Humanities Council.

Judson gave their first performance. Jesse quit the main group to write songs and actually manager the group. Their first performance was in Milford, NH. Their signature number became “The Old Granite State” in 1843. Minstrel show groups compared themselves to the Hutchinsons. In 1845, the family toured Great Britain. At the urging of Jesse Hutchinson, the group took on various causes - abolitionism, temperance and women’s rights. Frederick Douglas became a close friend in England and the group stayed with him for almost a year. Their sister Abby got to be a very important part of this group. Whenever a member of the group wrote a new song, each of the four singers decided his own part to create harmony. Steve Blunt was sponsored again by the Humanities Council and has been working on his craft for over 20 years. A full house came to listen to the Hutchinson’s story and original music. Because the Hutchinson singers were new to many of the Historical members, everyone left with a new understanding of this type of music.

They have recently rolled out a new brand Discount Vacation Center to increase their land vacation business. “Discount Vacation Center has really taken off. We have been selling land based vacations for 20 years, but many of our clients didn’t realize it or think that we were able to compete with the Internet Giants. Not only can we compete on a pricing standpoint, we offer good old fashioned service that you won’t get from an Internet company,” Walsh said. Cruise Travel Outlet is located at 39 Main St. in Salem.

Local Venison Benefits the Less Fortunate

A new study commission by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and conducted by Mile Creek Communications revealed that last year 11 million meals were provided to the less fortunate through donations of venison by hunters. Nearly 2.8 million pounds of game meat made its way to shelters, food banks and church kitchens and onto the plates of those in need. “Given our challenging economic times, hunters’ donations of venison have never been more important to so many people,” said Stephen L. Sanetti, president and CEO of NSSF. Individual hunters donate game meat and even pay for processing, though many hunters choose to work with organizations dedicated to the cause of helping the hungry. Many of these groups were sources for the NSSF study and include Hunters for the Hungry, Farmers & Hunters Feeding the Hungry, Hunt to Feed and Buckmasters, among others. Visit their Websites for more information about groups active in various states.
