Heronfield Supports Heifer Project

Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth. It all started with a cow.

Moved by the plight of orphans and refugees of the Spanish Civil War as he ladled out meager rations of powdered milk, Dan West, an Indiana farmer, volunteer relief worker and Church of the Brethren member, grasped that the people needed "a cow, not a cup" - cows that could produce milk so families would not have to depend on temporary aid. From that simple idea, Heifer International was born.

In 1944, the first cows sent abroad were donated by West's neighbors and distributed throughout Europe following World War II. More than sixty-seven years later, Heifer has expanded its mission, just as it expanded to thirty types of animals it now provides from goats, geese and guinea pigs to bees, silkworms and water buffalo.

This past December, Heronfield Academy's eighth graders made the commitment as a class to raise money for Heifer International. Their goal was to raise $500.00, which would pay for one Heifer. Not only did they hit their goal but they went over it!  A matching gift allowed them to purchase not one but two cows, along with along with a Gardener's Basket, A Flock of Hope, Tree Seedlings, and a Share of Seedlings.  Thank you to the eighth graders at Heronfield Academy for your support of this worthy cause.  Heronfield Academy is an independent middle school in Hampton Falls, that balances an exciting academic program with community service, as part of an overall emphasis on raising confident young people who find balance in our busy world.

  • 'A Midwinter Night's Scream'

    Sanborn Regional High School students put the “shake” back in Shakespeare during two public performances held in the school auditorium, celebrating Sanborn’s Shakespeare Month. Students found that Shakespeare was written to be performed, not to be read. The young men and women dedicated themselves to a month-long intensive workshop (more than twenty students) that culminated in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Scream’, written and directed by Donna Devlin-Young.
