Farmers should inform their customers if they use sludge

To The Daily Sun,

Summertime is a time for experiencing growth. Lush grass, soft breezes, smell of fragrant lilacs, lily of the valley. Best of all local greens, vegetables, fresh cut hay, pigs, chickens, cows, milk, eggs, all local and fresh.

People that buy local care about what's fresh and healthy and want to support local farmers. My choice is to support local farmers that do not use sludge on their fields to grow vegetables, feed animals grown for meat, eggs or buy toxic sludge cut hay. Spreading sludge is spreading dangerous pathogens, disease, heavy metals, flame retardants, pharmaceuticals and so much more. We all need to make the right choice that suits our beliefs. If your local products that you are selling are sludge-free you need to inform the public it is.

Farmers that use sludge on their fields that feel so comfortable and believe in the safety of this product should also state "get your local sludge grown products here."

You might be surprised to learn you’re eligible to join the VFW

To The Daily Sun,

I wonder if your readers who are military veterans know if they are eligible to join the Veterans of Foreign Wars. I didn't. If someone served more than 30 days on active duty in Korea they are eligible. There are some other surprising criteria.

The mission of the VFW is quite clear: To foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts. To serve our veterans, the military and our communities. To advocate on behalf of all veterans.

We do that quite well at VFW Post 1670 in Laconia. The fellowship that veterans have access to can be critical to their well-being and their transition back into civilian life. Post 1670 also works closely with the community allow the use of our facility for non-military charity events and fundraisers.

We are holding an open house and information session on June 26 at 1 p.m. We'll have music, food and lots of fun.

I certainly hope to see our Lakes Region Veteran Community turn out in droves.

Hillary Seeger
