Kevin Maes does great job of representing District 6 voters in Concord

To The Daily Sun,

Kevin Maes has been my state representative from Grafton District 6 for two years — representing the towns of Ellsworth, Rumney, Groton, Orange and Thornton. During that time I have never asked for his help on a constituent matter but I know many who have. They all attest that he is a man who we can count on and who serves us well in Concord.

Kevin has been a man who has always seen public service as a calling for him. As a selectman, police officer, sports referee and educator, he has served the area honorably and diligently. He has made a mission out of trying to restore a sense of civility in the N.H. House and there is nothing we need more right now.

When I cast my vote on Tuesday Nov. 8, I'm pleased to know that there is a man on the ballot who has integrity and honor and for whom hard work is just the way we do things here in New Hampshire.

I hope you will help re-elect Kevin Maes in Grafton District 6.

Wayne D. King

Great response to Meredith Altrusa's request for outerwear donations

To The Daily Sun,

Neighbors helping neighbors is indeed what it's all about! Altrusa's recent request for community donations of warm winter outerwear for school families was a huge success. Teresa McCormack, school nurse at I-LES, was very pleased (and scrambling for storage space) when box after box and bag after bag of over 220 items of warm outerwear were delivered by Altrusa committee members to Teresa's office for the Oct. 21 Inter-Lakes Elementary School clothing distribution day.

Altrusa would like to thank those donors who generously donated coats, ski pants, hats, scarves, mittens and gloves. What a delight to open bag after bag of brand new hand knit matching winter hats, mittens and scarves. The I-LES playground will be a delight of color when children don these beautiful and warm hand-knit items.

Special thanks to Jacqueline Taylor, financial advisor, and Kathleen Swanson, branch office administrator, of the Edward Jones Investments Office, 14 Main St., Meredith, and Carrie Jordan, AVP Branch and Business Development Manager at Meredith Village Savings Bank, Route 25, Meredith. Their immediate response and generous offer to be clothing drop-off locations made it very convenient for donor drop off and Altrusa pick up throughout the drive.

To learn more about Altrusa and how we partner with other local organizations to help our community, see our website at www.altrusameredithnh.org. Altrusa International of Meredith is a 501 ( c ) 3 nonprofit.
