Hannaford is again selling the gift boxes for the holidays. These are divided with Barnstead, Gilmanton Iron Works, New Durham, Wolfeboro and the Alton Community Service. The Boy Scouts will be having their food drive within the coming weeks. Their leader should be commended in doing a great job with the Scouts. They certainly are a troop to be proud of.
