First, happy Day After Thanksgiving! Hope your holiday turned out just fine and you have lots of good memories. Because the selectmen were to meet the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, that meeting was cancelled. But life does go on in town and around.
Don’t forget the town’s Christmas party is December 12. All are invited.
Gibson Center: The Center closed for the holidays. On Monday, November 30 at 12:30 p.m. Governor Martin O’Malley will visit the Center to speak and answer your questions.

UNH Extension: For those preparing for the winter heating season the firewood prices are averaging $250 to $275 a cord for green wood and $325 to $375 a cord for seasoned wood. Also, are you prepared for a power outage? No power can compromise the safety of food in the refrigerator or freezer. Time, temperature and good cleaning are important to the safety of food.
Albany will be saying goodbye to Jack and Camille Rose in a few months as they have decided to retire to a new high-rise senior housing unit in Lawrenceville, GA. in as Camille put it, the “Deep South”. Their son Aaron and his family live in Cumming, Georgia (where by the way Frank and Muriel Wolfe live) and being close to family felt right.
It’s Christmas time and Angels and Elves is in need of sponsors. You can help by sending a donation to MWV Kiwanis Club of North Conway, P.O. Box 3053, N.Conway, NH 03860, or going directly to Angels and Elves headquarters in Settlers Crossing. You can also call 356-8710. Parents and guardians can put in requests at the headquarters.
Board Santa’s Holiday Express (Conway Scenic RR) this weekend when Santa and his mischievous elves will share their hot chocolate and cookies with everyone.
Enjoy the holiday fun and have a great week!
