Howes don't need to knickle under to whoever knucklehead is

To The Daily Sun,

Gilford, what is wrong with you? Do you all like GMO? Do you all like seeing neighbors fail? Well if you answered no, then what in God's name is wrong with you when you want to stifle farmers i.e. Beans and Greens, from giving all of us wonderful, chemical-free food for our tables? Those tables in this case are the weddings and scenic meals that they provide for the public.

I can't believe that you are seriously giving credence to the rants of someone who more than likely is jealous of a successful business and purveyor of fantastic food for the area.

Do not presume to cause them to have to shut their operation down because I am confident karma will come to roost in your back door when you're hungry and in need of chemical-free and wonderful veggies etc. not found in the local grocery stores.

Martina and Andy Howe, I am sure many other residents of this area stand with you and hope you don't have to knuckle under to whoever this knucklehead is.

Indoor yard sale will benefit Meredith Emergency Food Pantry

To The Daily Sun,

It's that time of year again. The Meredith Emergency Food pantry uses its own funds to fill the shelves in preparation for the holidays. It can be a monthly bill of around $3,000 for the food pantry. The pantry cannot survive on the account funds alone; it needs donations.

There are many, many families in need of assistance and part of being a community is to reach out and support in any way we can. With that being said, the caring educational people of the Inter-Lakes school system would like to assist.

The Inter-Lakes Education Association (ILEA) and the Inter-Lakes Support Staff Association (ILSSA) are now planning the sixth annual Indoor Yard Sale. These associations are the teachers and para-educators of the Inter-Lakes School District.

The food pantry is in need of help. Therefore, 100 percent of the money from the yard sale will be donated to the food pantry.

In addition to many donated items there will also be baked goods and specialty baskets for sale.

Please support this yard sale to help families in need as the holidays approach. Let's all chip in to make this event a successful one. Last year we raised $2,600 for the pantry. Over the past five years we have raised in excess of $11,000.

The indoor yard sale will be Sunday, Oct. 18. This event will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Inter-Lakes Elementary School in the multi-purpose room. The elementary school is located behind Inter-Lakes High School (Laker Lane) off Route 25 in Meredith.

Donations for the yard sale may be dropped off at Inter-Lakes Elementary School on Friday, Oct. 16, from 3:30 to 6 p.m. or on the morning of the yard sale Sunday, Oct. 18, from 7 to 8 a.m. (no electronics).

If anyone would like to bring a non-perishable item, we will have a collection box that will go to the food pantry after the event. Any questions, feel free to contact Alesia Parks at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Meredith Emergency Food Pantry is located at 147 Main St. and is open for donations Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please call 279-1115 for any other information.
