HOLDERNESS — Police chiefs from the towns of Holderness and Ashland will be presenting a program on the hot topic of "being scammed." The public is invited to attend on Wednesday morning, March 12 at 11:30 at the Holderness Fire Department. Also available to answer questions on the related topic "Fraud and You," will be a representative from Meredith Village Savings Bank. Immediately following the program,
the Holderness Park and Rec Department will provide popcorn and a movie, which is open to all who would like to attend.
Both chiefs brought it to the attention of the newly formed group, Concerned Christian Community (CCC) that its senior citizens, especially, are in need of this program that is being presented..
The CCC is made up of representatives from several local churches. Members from St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Holderness Community Church, Ashland Baptist Church, Ashland Methodist Church, and St. Agnes Church, are collectively working together toward the common goal of presenting topics that have been determined will strengthen their townspeople.
The CCC was started by St Mark's Church earlier this winter. Their mission is to reach out and explore the needs of their communities, and work with other churches to meet those needs. It was determined that the focus should be on senior citizens, young parents, and the already established "Got Lunch" and "Community Pantry" programs.
The next CCC meeting will be held in Sherrill Hall, St. Mark's Church on Thursday, March 13 at noon. All who are interested in making this group a success, are encouraged to bring a bag lunch, and some fresh ideas. Drinks will be provided.
