Family of Eugene Manville thanks the many involved in his care

To The Daily Sun,

The family of Eugene Manville would like to thank the following agencies and the many others who have provided support and assistance over the past few years;
— Central New Hampshire Visiting Nurse Association
— Comfort Keepers
— LRGHealthcare
— St. Francis Home
— Stewart's Ambulance Service
Without their assistance, caring for Gene at home, would have been nearly impossible. Their help allowed us to fulfill his wish to remain in the house where he was born.
A special thank you is due to two of our siblings, Priscilla Manville and Ellen Fortgang. Priscilla disrupted her life in Pennsylvania, where she had lived for more than 30 years, to return to Center Harbor and care for both dad and mom, so that they could remain in their home. Ellen as well, selflessly spent uncounted hours assisting Priscilla in caring for our parents.

Melanie (Manville) Heinis

Meredith Rec Holiday Open House & Tree Lighting a great success

To The Daily Sun,

Once again, we are so humbled to live, work and play in such an amazing community!
The Meredith Parks & Recreation Department would like to express a huge thank you to everyone who helped and participated in our Annual Holiday Open House and Tree Lighting event on Sunday, Dec. 4! I would like to start out by thanking our awesome group of staff members and volunteers who helped facilitate games, activities, snacks, arts and crafts and more during the open house at the Meredith Community Center, without the staff and volunteers this event would not have been possible! A BIG thank you to SANTA for joining us for both the open house and the tree lighting — he's a busy fella but we were happy to enjoy a few hours with him! A big, big thank you to Trinity Episcopal Church in Meredith and their volunteers for baking delicious cookies with our After-school Program for everyone to enjoy during both events!
We also would like to thank the Meredith Fire Department for supplying SANTA'S sweet ride, Meredith Police Department, the Public Works and Building and Grounds Department for all the awesome lights at Hesky Park, the ASTRA girls for puppet Storytime during open house, Ashley Doten and the girl scouts as well as Deb Dow and the Kinder Choir for their beautiful caroling during the tree lighting. Most importantly — we would love to thank all the friends and families who came out to the events to enjoy some holiday fun with us! It truly warms my heart to see the children and families enjoying themselves at these events — it's why we do what we do!

Sarah Perkins, Program Director
