Say Hello to our new members: Richard and Jane Nichols, and Paul and Peggy Van Blarigan. Welcome!
We have decided to publish the minutes of our monthly meetings. In the essence of brevity, we will publish a synopsis of the monthly meetings. Detailed minutes can be obtained from our Secretary, Bob Fiero.
Minutes of 25 April.
Meeting opened at 12:50PM with invocation and Pledge of Allegiance. Minutes of March meeting read and approved. Treasurer’s report read and approved. Activities Chair Pam Arpin reviewed several programs for future use. Participation in the upcoming Hollis Old Home Day was discussed. Approval to hold our Seniors Picnic, here at the Barn on 27 June 2013, was approved. Watch for additional information. Attendees were reminded that the expired drug return program would be held at the Hollis Police Station on 27 Apr 2013. Additional discussion was held concerning paving the Barn parking lots. Members discussed the possibility of expanding new activities. Meeting adjourned at 1:20PM
We opened our April program with a presentation by Dr. Dagianis from Nashua Eye. Dr. Dagianis discussed various eye diseases that seniors may exhibit, ranging from wet and dry macular degeneration to the latest in cataract surgery. Dr. Dagianis also answered various written questions that the members had prepared beforehand. This was a most informative program.
At our next meeting, Honi Glover talked about her experiences as a young girl growing up in Hollis. A wonderful history lesson. And in between our Thursday meetings, a group of seniors were invited to a tour of our state house, courtesy of Jim Belanger, our State Representative.
At our 3rd meeting, we were serenaded by the HBMS jazz group, the Knight Jazz. What a wonderful group of young musicians, all directed by Bill Hinkle the HBMS music director. Music ranged from the big band era to modern jazz. It was so lively; several members got up and danced.
