Belmont fire chief earns his credentials

BELMONT -- Fire Chief David Parenti has successfully completed the process that awards him the professional designation of Chief Fire Officer (CFO). The Commission on Professional Credentialing (CPC) officially conferred the designation on Parenti earlier this month.

Parenti is one of only 961 CFO's Worldwide.

The commission awards CFO designation only after an individual successfully meets all of the organization's criteria. The process includes an assessment of the applicant's education, experience, professional development, technical competencies, contributions to the profession, and community involvement. In addition, all applicants are required to identify a future professional development plan.

Parenti has a rich knowledge of the emergency services profession and has far surpassed critical core competencies for personnel serving in senior fire officers positions.

Parenti has been a member of the Belmont Fire Department for four years. He is currently the President of the New Hampshire Association of Fire Chiefs and resides in Concord.

The CFO designation program uses a comprehensive peer review model to evaluate candidates seeking the credential.

The Commission on Professional Credentialing, an entity of the Center for Public Safety Excellence, Inc., (CPSE) administers the CFO Designation Program. The CPC consist of individuals from academia, federal and local government, and the fire and emergency medical services profession. To learn more about CPC, visit www.publicsafetyexcellence.org

Donations needed to feed schoolchildren in Ashland & Holderness this summer

ASHLAND — Got Lunch! of Ashland and Holderness, which is providing lunches for 64 children this summer, is seeking donations to support the program which provides nutritious lunches for needy youngsters.

The corps of volunteer packers and drivers are working well together and the entire operation is proceeding efficiently, say organizers.

Packers meet at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Ashland every Monday morning. The fresh food from Shurfine Market in Ashland is brought to the church by volunteers, sorted, and packed for pick up or delivery. Organizers of the program are grateful to Shurfine for allowing the group to purchase the healthy fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and canned goods that make up each weeks menus at a very special price.

Each week vouchers are included for a variety of dairy products, and each family is periodically given printed information, menu ideas, etc. provided by the University of New Hampshire Extension Office.

This program has a cost. Organizers point out that all of the staff give freely of their time, Shurfine is exceedingly generous. But the bottom line, they say, is that it costs $110 to feed each of the 64 kids for 10 weeks of school summer vacation. Got Lunch gratefully acknowledges the generous donations that have been received, but they have not quite met the need for this year. Your tax deductible donation is solicited and may be sent to Got Lunch - Ashland and Holderness, c/o Anne Lamson, 3 White Mt. Court, Ashland NH, 03217.
