Band Concert
Webster Park


The Epsom Town Band will present its first concert on Friday, July 7th, at 7:00 p.m. at Webster Park.  Mark your calendars and invite your friends and family.  Bring a lawn chair and enjoy an “old-fashioned concert in the park!”


The Adult Summer Reading Program at the Epsom Library will have its first evening program on Monday, July 10 at 7:00 PM.  Liz Barbour from Creative Feast will be cooking two recipes for us from her new cookbook, “Beautifully Delicious:  Cooking with Herbs and Edible Flowers.”  This will be her fourth visit with us and she always prepares something yummy.   She needs to have a head count for grocery shopping so we have a sign-up sheet at the circulation desk at the library or one could call the library at 736-9920 and make a reservation by July 5.


Congratulations to Christina Barton of Epsom who was named to the Dean’s List at Paul Smith’s College during the spring 2017 semester. Christina earned a semester average of 3.3 or higher to receive this distinction.



Epsom Food Pantry


Another very busy week in the Pantry. With pick ups to deal with and a goodly amount of members coming in, the staff was busy.


Remember, I put a list of volunteers in the paper? Well, Ken said I missed a few, sorry. Here they are:  Betsy, Sarah, Peter and his crew of kids that help at the holidays, Joyce, Sharon, and Deb B.


I do hope your gardens are thriving. We are anxiously awaiting the first arrivals of fresh veggies. Just a word of caution, be careful coming in and out of the Pantry parking lot as traffic has increased due to summer travel.  If you experience trouble, just drive up the hill into the library yard and go out that way. Be safe and watch out for the kids.


Until next time,

John L. Campbell


John L. Campbell, 66, of Epsom, passed away June 28, 2017, following heart surgery, recovery from which was complicated by other failing health conditions.


“Captain Jack,” as he was affectionately called by some of his closest friends, was a Vietnam veteran. Following service to his country, he became a key distribution executive for several major US companies.


Always community minded, Captain Jack, with one of his closest friends, Richard (Dick) Frambach, also of Epsom, spearheaded an effort to try and get the DeMoulas / Market Basket Chain to open a store in Epsom.


Throughout his life, Captain Jack put other people above himself and being no stranger to politics, he actively supported only candidates who put people above party. He was also no stranger to history. The historical figure Captain Jack admired most was John Paul Jones, father of the United States Navy and about whom he had been researching and writing for the past 11 years.
At his request, no end of life services will be held.
