Belated Birthday Wishes
Croydon Police Chief, Richard Lee, celebrated his birthday November 12 by attending a horse show in Boston with this daughter. Lee said it was the best birthday he has had since he was a kid.
Speaking of kids, Chief Lee spoke with the students of the Croydon Village School about gun
safety, last week. Lee was impressed with the knowledge the children had and credits the parents with teaching them the proper way to handle guns for hunting.
Beware of Ticks
Even though there have been some hard frosts, there are still ticks around. I know one bit me. It was a brown deer tick; my doctor put me on antibiotics and sent the tick to the lab. All is well but make sure you check yourself and your animals after being outside. It is important to remember that according to the UNH Cooperative Extension Service, 50-70 percent of all the deer ticks in NH carry the bacteria for Lyme disease.
Mitchell’s Magic Christmas
I went to Mitchell's Magic Christmas in Claremont, this weekend, and I was impressed with all the work done by this individual family. It was truly amazing. There is even a radio station you can tune into to listen to the music in your car. There is a guest registry and a donation box, but it is for donations for CHAD (Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth) so stop by and contribute to a good cause. For more information visit: www.claremontchristmaslights.com or call 603-542-9388. The house is located at 16 Francis Avenue in Claremont, and lights are on from 4:30 - 9:30 each evening.
