We had a short Thursday meeting schedule due to Thanksgiving, but we still had some interesting activities. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
We started off the month with the McKay history. Wow, what experiences and adventures Bill and Terri have had, so far. And from all indications, their adventures are not over. I sure hope they sit down and record their experiences for their family and friends.
We next had a representative from Easter Seals who spoke about their “Seniors Count” program. Most of us did not know that Easter Seals has such a program that centered on taking care of seniors at home. This program is available 24/7 and provides such services as companionship, home-helper, wellness, transportation and transition home-from-hospital services. This program is committed to offering a helping hand where and when needed. More information can be acquired by calling 603-621-3497 or going to www.eastersealsnh.org.
The following week was our business meeting, as we do not hold a meeting on Thanksgiving Thursday. The minutes of the last meeting were read by Bob Fiero and accepted. The Treasurer’s report was read and accepted.
New business: Members were reminded of the upcoming Christmas party on 12 December at the Crown Plaza. Festivities start at 11:00AM. Our very own John O. will be providing entertainment. If you have not made your reservations, please call Nancy Bell at 603-465-7822.

Floor nominations and voting will take place during the December business meeting on 19 December. Voting will be by secret ballot.
