Epsom Food Pantry

 

Well, good evening. I just finished watching the nightly news and we must all count our blessings that we are safe. The folks in Texas and Louisiana are going through probably the most devastating time in their lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

 

Busy week. We saw lots of members and they told me how much they enjoy the fresh veggies and, like us, are so grateful to our town veggie farmers who kept us supplied.

 

I would like to thank Sandy from our Natural Food Store on Black Hall Road (where the town office used to be) for her weekly contribution of fresh milk to the Pantry, and to the lovely lady who brought us duck eggs that were just wonderful.

 

I want to tell you about our friend, Charlie Bateman, who is trying to save the world. The hungry kids are top on his list, so he had a lemonade stand at the balloon rally, and with the money he made, he went shopping and brought us a box full of food for “hungry kids.” P.S. He has three other worthy causes. That is an example of our fine young people in Epsom.

 

Until next time,

Priscilla

 


 

Epsom Library News

 

A United Kingdom is the film that will be shown at the Epsom Public Library on Wednesday, September 13 at 1:30 PM.  Based on a true story, it tells of the forbidden love between the king of Botswana and a white English woman in the 1940s just as apartheid was introduced into South Africa. Their decision to marry caused an international uproar but their determination changed the course of African history.

 

The film Megan Leavey will be shown on Tuesday, September 19 at 1:30.  Please note the change in day.  Megan was a Marine Corporal whose discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq.  This is based on the true life story.

 

Tuesday evening, September 19 at 7:00 pm, the library will be hosting author Mark Okrant who will discuss his latest book,  Death by Lobster.  The author of nine books both fiction and non-fiction, Mr. Okrant is a professor emeritus at Plymouth State University. His mysteries are all based on famous grand hotels and historic resort communities in New England.  This latest book takes place in Ogunquit, Maine where dead bodies mar the seaside landscape.  The main character, Kary Turnell, works beside his wife and partner to head off a possible killing spree that threatens the community’s summer tourism season.
