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
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,

“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.
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.
