Food For All in Ashland will be celebrating anniversary number 25

To The Daily Sun,

On Tuesday, Sept. 5, FOOD FOR ALL in Ashland will celebrate its 25th anniversary! FOOD FOR ALL is a community meal served each Tuesday evening at 5:00 (weather permitting) at the Boost Club building in Ashland to anyone who wishes to partake. Its motto is “A friendly gathering so that all may eat . . . and no one will eat alone . . .“ Mike and Sue Bridges, formerly of Ashland, but currently residents of North Carolina, opened FOOD FOR ALL in September of 1992. They modeled the community meal after their experience at the St. Francis Inn, a mission/soup kitchen run by Franciscan Friars, that serves the needy in the Kensington area of Philadelphia, PA. Over the years, FOOD FOR ALL has served between 30 and over 100 guests, though more recently the numbers have been closer to 40.

In the early years, various community organizations took responsibility for preparing and serving the meals under the direction of the Bridges. More recently, a small cadre of very faithful and effective volunteers under the direction of two successors of Mike and Sue, Linda Folsom of Ashland, and Elena Worrall of New Hampton, have taken over total responsibility.

Support for FOOD FOR ALL has come totally from the generosity of businesses, organizations, churches, and individuals in the surrounding communities. In particular, FOOD FOR ALL has enjoyed significant monetary and in-kind donations from Common Man, the Plymouth Hannaford, and the New Hampton School. Local gardeners have shared their produce with us as well. We wish to sincerely thank all those donors, volunteers, and guests who have made this effort possible.

Sue Bridges will be making a visit to help us celebrate the anniversary at the dinner on September 5.

Urge VP Pence to begin constitutional process of removing Trump

To The Daily Sun,

Dear Trump voter:

It has been seven months since Donald J. Trump has been in the White House, and I for one, have not seen him fulfill one of his campaign promises. The miserable attempt at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act was a total disaster. Had the Senate’s Bill passed, millions of you would be without health insurance. I am not aware of any infrastructure program that is putting millions of unemployed Americans to work. How would his tax cut for the rich plan help you?

He has delivered nothing on his promises, and managed to get us to the brink of a nuclear war with North Korea. Everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie. He has demonstrated contempt of the United States Constitution by profiting financially from his position as president. He demands loyalty from his staff, but does not reciprocate, publically humiliates them, and fires them at will.

He criticized President Obama for taking vacations, yet he flies to his golf resorts regularly, at the taxpayers’ expense. He is an egotist, a narcissist, a racist, a womanizer, a liar, and is so thin-skinned that he vindictively strikes out at those who differ with him. He is perhaps guilty of obstruction of justice with his dealings with James Comey. His barrage of “tweets” makes him look like a spoiled, petulant little brat. Our allies do not respect him.

He ineffective, he is dangerous, and exhibits the characteristics of insanity.

Before he does any further harm, I urge you to contact our congressional representatives to support a bill of impeachment. If that does not appeal to you, urge Vice-President Pence to begin the process of removing Trump from office, using the provisions of Section 4, Paragraph 1, of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
