February 2011

 

We kicked off the new year with a great program!  Mr. Eric Nickerson, who is a commercially rated FAA Hot-Air Balloon Pilot, joined us to talk about the history of Hot-Air Ballooning.  He also showed beautiful slides that were taken during various trips and “adventures” he has taken part in with his “Beautiful Balloon”.  We all felt envious! Check out our website for some pictures of the session.

 

We are investigating the various trips that can be taken with Curmudgeon & Friends, a small bus-tour company.  The trips range from visiting the Van Otis Chocolate Factory in Manchester to seeing the “King and I” in Keene, NH to the Boston Flower Show.  This looks like a great opportunity to get out and about, without having to do a lot of driving ourselves.  More to come on this venue.

 

And as we start another year, just a reminder that “dues are due.”  Please see Sandy Belanger to pay your membership dues.

 

And say “hi” to the following new members:  Maurice Chasse, Peggy Mithoefer, and Bob and Erlinda Smith

General:

1.      The Hollis Seniors now have a gateway to post cancellations on WMUR TV, airing 15 and 45 minutes past the hour on Channel 9.  If the weather looks bad, check Channel 9

2.      We have a business meeting the last Thursday of every month (except Thanksgiving).  Be sure to attend. 

3.      The SVTC bus service is off to a good start.  If you have any questions, call Nashua transportation at 880-0100 Ext 1.  And you can visit the SVTC web site at www.SouheganRides.org

 

Future Senior Activities of interest:

1.      How about a Spring trip? Or a Winter trip?

2.      Stay tuned for an upcoming “cooking demonstration” to be held at the “Barn.”

3.      How about a trip to the NH State House to see and hear our State Reps at work?  (We now have one of our own as a State Representative)

4.      How about some more “show and tells”?

5.      How about having a TV weather person come and speak to us?

6.      We are going to investigate the possibility of combining some future events with the Nashua Seniors group. 

7.      Look into upcoming classes at RISE.  Some great programs will be offered.

8.      Check out the Hollis Library for upcoming seminars on trusts and wills. There are lots of new changes and these are some very worthwhile seminars. 

9.      Curmudgeon & Friends has a small bus (about 14 riders) and has numerous trips planned from January thru March. Flyers will be posted at the “BARN” or you can contact Honi or Donna directly.  You can even call Jay (Curmudgeon & Friends) directly at: 603-883-5017.

 

Please let me know your comments and wishes.
