Pollard Greenhouse

Bryce Whittaker, pictured above, a member of Plaistow Boy Scout Troop 18, works on his Eagle Scout Project with great expectations to the future. The labor of love is an 18' x 8' greenhouse, located at the rear of Pollard Elementary School in Plaistow. Thanks to the generosity of the community, the school PTA, Pollard teachers, the Lions and Knights of Columbus, Home Depot, and many others, Bryce has raised over $5,000 for this project. This is by far the largest budget for an Eagle Scout project in Troop 18 history, at a cost of $4,750, plus supplies. Bryce is the son of Susan and Craig Whittaker. (CTN photo by Larry Kennedy)

  • '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.
