Alton Community Services will move, and thanks for donations

To The Daily Sun,
It is that time of year for Alton Community Services and one is most grateful for the donors and volunteers who make it possible for us to maintain our mission to help the distressed in our area.
We have been looking forward to expanding our facility for several years. Mr. Roberts is expanding his real estate business and leaves us no alternative but to move. We are looking at the Scott’s building on Main Street. The building would give us ample space so as not to have to store supplies off the premises.
We have been helping the town with its annual baskets. Hannaford’s again sold Give A Meal boxes and we share these boxes with Barnstead, Gilmanton Iron Works, New Durham and Wolfeboro.
The Cub and Boy Scouts had their annual food drive and delivered over 1,000 pounds of nonperishable food items to us. Thanks to all who made the drive  so successful. Nonperishable food may be left at Maxfield’s Real Estate, Profile Bank or Alton Home and Lumber. Donations may be sent to Alton Community Services, P.O. Box 43, Alton, NH 03809.
Any one interested in volunteering is asked to please call Diane Eagles, volunteer director, at 293-9335 of me are 875-6396. We are open to suggestions as to how to improve our services to you; please let us know.
Dorothye S. Wentworth, Director

I vote for who can handle the job best, not which party they are

To The Daily Sun,
Oh boy, here we go again! My answer to who has the biggest ass, the elephant or the donkey, is: Who cares? When I vote, I vote for the one I think can handle the job best, not which party they represent. Got that, Mr. Alan Moon?
What’s the matter with you, Mr. Moon? Are you afraid of which one is the best to handle it? I will, however admit, that I thought Trump would be the best. Now, let’s see if he can handle the job. And no, I don’t really believe he will be in for long.
Why? You figure it out. For one thing, I don’t like the way he mocks other people, making fun of their handicaps. That’s wrong. But, I do like the way he talked about what he would do for the country. Let’s see if he holds up to his word.
Merry Christmas, everyone. Keep smiling.
E. J. Michael
