Learn how to avoid being victim of a scam at program on Wednesday

HOLDERNESS — How to avoid being the victim of a scam will be the topic of a program scheduled for Wednesday, March 26, at 11:30 a.m. at the Holderness Fire Department.

The program will be presented by the police chiefs of Holderness and Ashland. A representative from Meredith Village  Savings Bank will also participate to answer questions on ways people can guard against fraud.

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 police chiefs recently told the newly formed, Concerned Christian Community (CCC), that the area's senior citizens will especially find this program informative and helpful.

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 to present programs on a variety of topics that will benefit townspeople.

The CCC was started by St Mark's Church earlier this winter. Its 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.

For the next CCC scheduled meeting, contact Deb Holland at 603-968-2303. 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.

Those who need transportation to the program may call any member of CCC.
