‘Downsizing - It’s Not That Impossible’ talk at the Taylor Community Friday

LACONIA — The Taylor Community recognizes that moving to a smaller home can seem like an impossible challenge for some people, therefore they are offering an informative session entitled "Downsizing - It's Not That Impossible" presented by Mariluz Flanders. This panel presentation and discussion will be held Friday, October 11 from 11 a.m. to noon in the Woodside Building at Taylor Community, 435 Union Ave.

Many seniors have lived in their home for years, even decades, during which time they’ve accumulated a lot of personal possessions. Paul Charlton, who works with seniors planning their move to Taylor Community,  notes it can be overwhelming for many. “I talk with people who are really excited to move. Then they go home and become paralyzed when they look at all the stuff in their closets, attics, sheds and basements. That’s where the advice of senior move managers can help; they do this for a living and their help is invaluable.”

Alan Robichaud, the community development director from Granite United Way, will talk about options for where people can donate unwanted items. Current Taylor residents are also going to be on hand to share their downsizing experiences.

To reserve your place at the seminar, please call Taylor Community at 524-5600 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Belknap County Republicans meeting at Top of the Town

BELMONT — The next meeting of the Belknap County Republican Committee will be held on Wednesday, October 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Top of the Town Restaurant in Belmont.

Although it was originally announced that Karen Testerman, potential candidate for US Senate, would be the guest speaker, she will be unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict. However, in light of the current government shutdown, there's a lot for the committee to be discussing about the budget stalemate, the debt ceiling, and Obamacare at the next meeting. Common Core would be discussed, as it's impacting local schools. Lastly, with additional people stepping forward to consider running for office, the committee will provide updates regarding those individuals and plans for future Belknap County GOP events.

Belknap County GOP meetings are open to all Republicans and like-minded independents. Those interested in having dinner or wish to socialize before the meeting should plan to arrive as early as 5 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the meeting for distribution to local food pantries.
