Congratulations to Karyn Veinotte of Epsom, who was named to the  Deanís List for the fall 2016 semester at The University of Maine at Farmington.


On Monday, March 13 at 2:00 PM, in conjunction with the Chichester Town Library, the Epsom Library will host the Memory Cafť, an informal, social gathering for anyone with memory issues and their caretakers.  We will play a video game using a DVD entitled The Fabulous Fifties.  The video shows film clips, historic photos and commentary of the times to see how much we all can remember.  Even wrong answers will provide information that will be fun to remember.  The idea is not to test knowledge, but  to engage memories and have fun.


Open to anyone in the area, the Cafť offers a chance for socialization in a comfortable setting.


Refreshments will be served.


On Wednesday, March 15, at 1:30, the library will show the film Inferno.  Starring Tom Hanks, this film is called ďa thrilling action  movie with lots of surprising twists and turnsĒ by Edward Douglas in NY Daily News.  Waking up in an Italian hospital and suffering from amnesia, Hanks finds he is the target of a manhunt.  He enlists the help of a doctor to help him recover his memory as they race across Europe to stop a virus that could wipe out half the worldís population.

Epsom Voters!


Iím voting for Virginia Drew for Epsom Selectman on March 14th!


I trust Virginia with taking care of our town, because I have seen the care she gives to our town! I have known her for 30 years!  I know she is honest, giving, and well informed.  She has volunteered for our community and the children in this town for decades.  She cherishes the history of the town, the people, and has always stepped forward to give of herself for others.  She has a proven record of making sound and informed decisions.


Virginia will bring a fresh perspective to the Board of Selectman and offer creative solutions to town issues.  She is willing to listen to people and consider otherís views.  Please elect Virginia Drew to this important town position!

Letter To The Editor


To keep this short and sweet, I do not support Articles 9 and 10.


We have two town buildings. One gets used 2-3 hours a month - 10 months out of the year. The other building (the small addition) gets used 8 hours a week.


We also have another building that someone running for Selectman wants to put 1.5 million into, which would end up being used maybe 2 or 3 times a month.


I would also like to let it be known that my support is for Chris Bowes for Selectman.


He has a big heart, does what is in the best interest of the Town and is not agenda-driven! He is also working hard to find ways to lower our taxes.


Bless You,
Gordon Ellis



Letter To The Editor


Just under three years ago now, we as a town had voted down the rather costly renovation of a church basement to be used as town offices. I voted against the project. My rationale, was that we could do much more with far less. I volunteered through an email to find a solution to what I had voted against.


I got a call back a few weeks later. It was first term Selectman Chris Bowes who was asking for me. Chris wasnít calling to tell me I had been selected to be a member of a committee. Chris was on the phone vetting me thoroughly. He asked a series of questions about the type of person that I am, what I did, how I thought I could contribute, and generally where I stood. Chrisís objective, was to obtain the highest quality people whom would represent you all well. This was my first experience with Chris, it was impressive. Iíve yet to be disappointed since.


I gained some great friends like Selectman Bowes participating in that committee. Chris and I have become friends who compare notes on our children, and we still speak at length about how to improve our community. Every time we speak. Chris is excited about how heís making Epsom a better place for every one of us.


I have never met a person who more genuinely cares about us, the people of Epsom. So Iím taking a few minutes to let you all know that thatís why I donít have a reservation at all in endorsing Chris Bowes for a second term as Selectman. It is my hope that we all hold value in the great things Chris has done for us all, and vote accordingly this election.


Best Regards,
Chris Pepin

Epsom Town Elections will be held March 14. I shall be voting for Virginia Drew to be a member of the Board of Selectmen. Virginia is a fine candidate for this office as she has long been involved in town and school affairs in Epsom. She has been a member of the budget committee, the school board, and a library trustee. She has been a long time Epsom resident and has knowledge of opur needs.


At the State level, Virginia has been director of the Visitors Center at the State House and is knowledgeable of the work of the legislature. Many elementary students from around the state have learned of the legislature through the many tours she conducts for school children.


I hope that Epsom voters will join me in voting for this most capable and caring candidate.
