Virginia Carter put in her thinking cap and came up with some terrific ideas of people to be included. Now someone has to get the pictures to Sarah Downing. – Lil
The “Walpole Community Christmas Fund” — 3 to 4 Walpole churches fundraise annually (usually taking a collection at the ecumenical service on Thanksgiving) and also place “giving trees” throughout the community to support those in need with Christmas presents for the whole family, as well as financial support for food, clothing, rent deposits, heating fuel, and auto gas. The fund was managed and facilitated by the Unitarian Church for many years, but now I believe the Episcopal church has taken the lead. Our ecumenical youth group and Girl Scouts have done the legwork on and off, but I’m not sure who is currently spearheading the actual legwork.
Another thought was the work of the “Walpole Old Home Days Committee.”
Another thought was all the volunteers who bring meals to Walpole residents from the Alstead Fall Mtn. kitchen and also the Meals on Wheels up in BF.
And who coordinates the Walpole Memorial Day Parade and the 4th of July parade?
