My Opinion: April 17, 2014

---- — RAYMOND - Having wrapped up all the House bills for this year, and passed the bills over to the Senate, the House had several weeks with no House sessions. This gives me the opportunity to give you my some great news about Raymond.

I would like to say “Congratulations, Well Done” to Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery for recently celebrating their 2nd anniversary of the opening of the butchery part of the business. The tavern’s 2nd anniversary will be in late spring.

As you may remember, Tuckaway won the “New Hampshire Magazine Best of New Hampshire 2013 Award for Best New Restaurant” last year. A great recognition and a well deserved award.

They won “Talk of The Town New Hampshire’s ‘Excellence in Customer Service Award 2012, and again in 2013.

A photo of one of their hamburgers was on the March 2014 front cover of New Hampshire Magazine when they ran a special article called “Your burger guide, from the gourmet to the gargantuan”.

They just received the “New Hampshire Magazine Best of New Hampshire 2014 Award for Best Butchery. The full-service meat market, with a nice specialty food section is great, currently over 20 fresh made sausages alone.

You also have the great menu in the tavern.

I am also very happy with all the support Tuckaway has given to Raymond and others, always giving to one group or another, supporting numerous fundraisers and non-profits. They are one of the annual Raymond Coalition For Youth discount card participants that you can use in their market.

In closing, “Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery” is the best thing that has happened in Raymond in many, many years.

Congratulations on your 2nd Anniversary. We wish you many more.
