Irish Citizen and Lovin' It

Plaistow’s Tom Cullen has always been a very proud man. He has devoted his life to his family, the Town of Plaistow, and service to his country as a WWII U.S. Navy veteran. His most recent achievement at 89 years young is receiving word that he is now an Irish citizen. With the help of local genealogist James Peck, Mr. Cullen now has his Certificate of Irish Citizenship framed, for all to see. Friends held a celebration at the Plaistow Public Library complete with bagpipers and Irish step dancers.

Mini Grant Winner

This Center Street, Exeter, garden was one of the 14 recipients of an Exeter Area Garden Club (EAGC) mini-grant award in 2013. The garden was designed by Beth Dupell and David Black of ecm design, a small graphic design, web and print business that had relocated to Center Street in December, 2010. Very appropriate, since the plaque on the rock monument located in this small traffic island is dedicated to Mr. John Templeton, a printer, among other trades. This little garden had been suffering from neglect and just needed a little TLC so they started small with basic foundation plants and will add to this each year. It has been a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

Job Fair Successful

The Exeter Chamber of Commerce partnered with the New Hampshire Employment Security (NHES) and the Exeter Rotary Club for a very successful third annual Exeter Job and Resource Fair. More than fifty Exeter area employers were on hand for job seekers to connect for permanent full time employment. The event was held at Exeter Town Hall, near the historic bandstand.

The Sale of Treasures
