Continuing with Ron Paul # 2:
The establishment is doing its best to make sure you
donít hear about Ron Paulís record and views, so I want to take a
moment to tell you what he stands for.
You see, I firmly believe that the more you know
about him, the more youíll realize there really is only one true
constitutional conservative candidate for President in the 2012
He believes that the federal government should not
be doing anything that is not specifically authorized by and
enumerated in the Constitution.
You might hear some other folks say something that
sounds like that. But look at their records. Donít take my word for
his record, get on a computer and check out all of their records.
Ron Paul is the only candidate (excluding Herman Cain) in the race
who can say that he has never voted for an unbalanced budget or an
increase in the debt ceiling. He vows he will never sign one as
President. My next letter will list what his priorities will be if

Epsom Public Library
Are you concerned about identity theft and consumer
fraud? On Wednesday, November 9, at 7:00 pm, AARP volunteer Bonnie
LaBrack will present a program explaining how to recognize, avoid,
and report common scams. As the home page of AARP tells us, "Being
informed is your best defense against the many scammers and
fraudsters who are out to rob you of your hard-earned income.
Theyíre sophisticated and sneaky and can trick even the smartest
folks." Attendees of this program will learn how to spot scams and
how to refuse and report them.
Ms. LaBrack, a former forensic accountant, will
discuss fraud geared to the elderly, investment fraud, Medicare
fraud (and why a lot of it doesnít get reported) as well as various
scams. "People need to learn how to protect themselves and their
hard-earned money. Knowledge is power," she said.
If you are interested in attending the program, you
may sign up at the front desk of the library.
Thanksgiving Is Coming
And So Is Our
50 / 50 Raffle
Please help Loudon Food Pantry make this a
successful Thanksgiving Holiday for those who canít make it happen
for themselves and their families.
We support Belmont, Canterbury, Chichester, Epsom,
50 / 50 Raffle
Because our clothing and household programs are on
hold (due to lack of space), we decided to hold a 50 /50 Raffle. In
this type of raffle, the winner does not receive goods but will
receive half of the ticket sales. We thought this would help out
with holiday expenses.
Raffle Dates: Starts November 1, 2011 and ends
December 15, 2011. Ticket Prices:50Ę each, 5 for $2.00 10 for $3.00.
You can purchase your tickets at the pantry located
at 30 Chichester Rd. in Loudon on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday from
10:00 am Ė 5:00 pm or Wednesday from 10:00 am Ė 6:00 pm. We will
also have an order form on our website at
starting November 1, 2011.
Each year we give out over 120 Thanksgiving Boxes to
households that would not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal.
This year we are handing out Thanksgiving Boxes the
week of November 14, 2011. We do this so our patrons have time to
safely defrost their turkeys for the holiday. Because we will be
closed the week of November 21, 2011 our patrons will be given
enough food for 10 days (which includes their holiday dinner). Doing
this puts an additional strain on pantry resources but we donít want
our patrons to go without food that week.
All donations that will be put into our Thanksgiving
Boxes need to arrive at our pantry on or before Friday November 11,
2011. We are normally closed on Fridays but are making an exception
due to the holiday. If your donation is received after that date, we
cannot guarantee that it will be used in a Thanksgiving Box. Any
donations not used in a Thanksgiving Box will be used for our normal
Items needed for our holiday boxes are: Turkey
(whole or breast), Cranberry Sauce, Canned Yams, Turkey roasting
pans, Turkey Stuffing (in the bird), Boxed cakes and frostings,
Puddings and Jello, and Turkey Gravy, canned.
The following items we are hoping to get fresh (if
funds and donations allow) and need to be purchased during the week
of November 14th to make sure they are in good condition for the
boxes. If you can help with these items, please call us at (603)
724-9731 so we can make arrangements for pickup or delivery: Apples,
Bananas, Squash, Carrots, Onions, Potatoes, and Dinner Rolls.
What food we donít receive will need to be
purchased. We are short on funds and need donations to make this
happen. All donations, small and large, will be helpful and greatly
appreciated. Gift cards to Samís Club or Wal-Mart are great as well.
Donation and Contact Information
If you can help, please mail or drop off donations
to: Loudon Food Pantry, 30 Chichester Rd., Unit D, Loudon NH anytime

We would like to take a moment to thank all of our
volunteers and donors for all you have done. All your help and hard
work has allowed us to provide enough food for 52,677 meals in 2011
