Twin Rivers Food Pantry has bread & peanut butter but no jelly

To The Daily Sun,

The Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry has a number of needs for July.

We especially need egg cartons — lots of them. We are now able to obtain fresh eggs through New Hampshire Food Bank. Unfortunately they come in cartons containing 15 dozen eggs all on sheets. Thereby we need to transfer them into egg cartons to give out. We can't keep enough eggs and run out quickly due to lack of cartons.

Children are out of school so there is a need to provide food items that satisfy their taste buds. What about this? Now that we have eggs, how about pancake mix and regular bottles of maple syrup. We have plenty of cereal thanks to the USDA. None that kid's love, unfortunately, just that plain old corn stuff!

We have peanut butter and bread but no jelly. Sadly we have real tight freezer space available therefore ice cream, Popsicles, frozen pizza bits, etc. are out. Should you see anything else that children would love with their meals, we are happy to receive.

We need your help, so please donate! We are located at 237 Central St. in Franklin. Call to arrange delivery at (603-934-2662).

The Rev. Karen Heavey, Director

Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry

Experience & judgement make Chandler an ideal candidate

To The Daily Sun,

After four terms as a Grafton County Commissioner I have met many outstanding leaders and concerned citizens in Grafton County who are making a difference. One of these committed citizens is Charlie Chandler. Our voters have an opportunity to elect a new face with Democrat Charlie Chandler of Warren running for the seat in Senate District 2.

This is a huge district running from Wilmot to Holderness and Tilton to Center Harbor — 27 towns. The needs are diverse as are the citizens, the local economy, the schools, health needs, etc. Charlie is a native from Laconia now residing in the small town of Warren where he is on the Selectboard. His past and present experiences include being a member of the state House of Representatives, Tilton Fire District moderator, Cannon Mountain Advisory Commission, on many boards of directors (Pemi Baker Land Trust, Spaulding Youth Center, Franklin Savings Bank, etc.) — the lists continue but this shows his involvement with a variety of groups and the respect held for his opinion.

Charlie Chandler's experience, judgment, and temperament make him the ideal candidate for our citizens of Senate District 2. He is a graduate of UNH and Suffolk Law School. His 45 years of experience in both elective and local and state-appointed positions makes him the most qualified candidate to lead our region and the state to a better educational system, stronger and creative economy, alternative energy sources, and a big commitment to fighting the opioid crisis now devastating our state.

By electing Charlie Chandler and achieving a Democratic majority in the State Senate, we will uphold a positive vision for New Hampshire and create a society where all our people are afforded fundamental justice and equal protection with their voices being heard. I hope my neighbors and friends across this large Senate District 2 will join me in supporting Charlie Chandler at the ballot box this fall. He will make a difference.
Martha Richards

Grafton County Commissioner

District 3
