Fish & Game Brighten Food Pantry
The Plaistow Fish & Game Club, located on May Ray Ave., Plaistow, presented a check for $1,000.00 to the Holy Angels Food Pantry.

Don't Risk Carbon Monoxide
The risk of fire and carbon monoxide at this time of year from your furnace is a killer, but can be prevented. Carbon monoxide is odorless and symptoms include: drowsiness, headaches, nausea and dizziness, to name a few. If you do not have a detector, invest in one now, or change the batteries in the one you own. Professional licensed burner cleaner/repairman should be your next call, or your local fire department. Above, Plaistow's P&M Heating owner/operator Mike Borges (also a veteran firefighter) responds 24-hours a day to keep families safe at 603-382-5607. (CTN photo by Larry Kennedy)
Auction Raised $20K for Greenways
Bear-Paw Regional Greenways held its first ever Growing the Greenways fundraiser on November 10, at the Bow Lake Grange Hall in Strafford. Almost 100 friends enjoyed an evening bidding on over 50 silent and live auction items. Net proceeds of over $20,000 will help Bear-Paw Grow the Greenways by conserving land and water throughout its region. The event featured hors d’oeuvres served by Randy Brisson of Dining by Design accompanied by complimentary wine, beer, and soft drinks. Professional auctioneer, Kathleen Pearson of Tupelo Events, kept guests energized as they placed bids.
Local businesses, members, and friends of Bear-Paw donated many wonderful items for the fundraiser. These included several vacation opportunities: a weekend stay in Sonoma County, California, a week on Biddeford Pool in Maine, and a weeklong stay on Bow Lake. As well as roundtrip Southwest Airline tickets, a private cruise to the Isles of Shoals, and other wonderful diversions. Winning bids also brought home a 22 horsepower John Deer tractor, a greenhouse kit, cordwood, and other sought after items.
Bear-Paw also thanked the local businesses that sponsored the auction including AMI Graphics, RPF Environmental Testing and Consulting, West Environmental, Ibis Wildlife Consulting, Keystone Press, Ransmeier & Spellman PC, and Ultra Geothermal!
