If government no longer provided me a helping hand, who would?

To The Daily Sun,

My letter was somewhat misinterpreted by Ms. Morrisette. I am grateful every day for hard-working Americans who pay taxes to provide benefits for the needy. I also have ongoing sympathies for the struggles of working persons. Your complaint somewhat proves my original point: Churches cannot help all of those in need — therefore government help is needed.

I have schizophrenia. I do what I can to not be a further burden to society. I choose to be sober, law-abiding and think rationally. I receive no church help, nor have I needed to ask for it. I appreciate the SSDI check that I receive. However, if the government no longer provided a helping hand, who would provide help to me? You are an example of the bitter, angry, and religious persons that certainly would not choose me as a beneficiary of your church's charity.

Modern fervent Christians have not been able to do miracles as Jesus claimed they would. I think Jesus and his miracles are a fairy tale. Peace.

Thanks for all the help with 2015 Gilmanton Old Home Day

To The Daily Sun,

The members of the American Legion Auxiliary, Ellis-Geddes-Levitt Unit 102 of Gilmanton would like to thank all of the planners, workers and sponsors of the 2015 Gilmanton Old Home Day for continuing to host this wonderful community event.

Visitors to our tables signed our guest book and viewed our photos and history album. We invited input on our Veterans at Rest in Gilmanton project and hope to follow up for additional information. Our sincere appreciation to everyone who stopped by and purchased some of our delicious home-baked goods and took a chance on our raffle. Richard Knibbs of Gilmanton won our raffled hand-crafted Raggedy Ann and Andy in their cart.

We welcomed two new members to our Unit during the day and were encouraged by the strong turn-out of both new and long-term residents of the community. Your generous support to the Unit continues to provide assistance to our local Veterans and their families.

Contact our Unit at P.O. Box 119, Gilmanton, NH or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and read more about our activities at www.ALANH102.org.
