Saturday, February 11 An “Afternoon Tea, a Gift of Love,” will be held at Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church to support homeless families in the area. Bringing loved ones, from little daughters to precious old friends, will be a gift of love,

Live musical entertainment can be enjoyed while waiting for seating times, or afterwards to linger in the pleasant Victorian atmosphere. Beautiful hats and long skirts will lend to the ambiance but are not required. Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite teacup and saucer wrapped in a tea towel for safe and spotless transport. Rather than tickets, donations from the heart are requested. Call Triumphant Cross at 603- 893-0305 or email email@example.com

He will discuss how the task was rendered even more complex this year because of a conflict between the state and federal constitutional requirements and how this affects our area. Also, because the whole notion of requiring a photo identification for voting has become a hot issue again, Representative Bates will describe the voter ID bill vetoed by the Governor and several ideas currently under consideration in the Election Law Committee.
