Thanks To Those Who Protect Us

New Creation Healing Center, 80 Route 125, recently thanked local emergency workers with massage gift certificates to be used at the Center. Full time police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians were given certificates for a full hour massage. Non-full time personnel were given discount coupons.

“I have professional firefighters, police officers and EMTs in my family and I know how they put themselves in danger for us,” commented the Rev. Canon Mark A. Pearson, Chairman of the Board of Directors of New Creation. “We wanted to say thanks in a practical way for the good job that they do for all of us.”

The annual visit from Santa continues to delight the children of Ashley MacLeod's Dance Dreams studio of Plaistow. Each holiday season, the young children prepare and perform a short dance to festive music for Santa and their parents. This year, the baby class included, from left to right: Julia Stevenson, 3, of Atkinson, Alivia Maglia, 3, also of Atkinson, and Rachel Kimball, 3, of Danville. Happy New Year to all from the entire Dance Dreams family!

New Creation Helps Children in Need

New Creation Healing Center recently got a big surprise.  For the first time, New Creation has sponsored a Children's Wish Christmas Tree.  The Department of Social Services in Kingston supplied the names of youngsters who might not have a Christmas toy were it not for the help of others.  Marlene Weitemeyer (pictured above), a Medical Assistant and the Events Coordinator at New Creation, crafted a Christmas tree and put the names and ages of ten youngsters on the tree.  Through the New Creation newsletter, medical, counseling and massage patients and clients of New Creation were invited to participate by taking a name and supplying a gift.

Here's the big surprise.  Those ten names went almost immediately.  New Creation asked for another batch of names and these names also went quickly.  And, finally, a third batch, too.    Comments New Creation co-founder the Rev. Canon Mark A. Pearson, "We've already decided to participate in this project next year and start with thirty names."  Marlene adds, "A special thanks to our patients and clients who are providing this blessing to area children."

New Creation Healing Center is located at 80 Route 125, Kingston.

Neighbor Thoughtfulness

Like a good neighbor, Amy Streck was there. Ms. Streck, pictured above, spotted a large pothole just off Brentwood Road in Exeter and decided to pound two reflective guides in that spot so those driving in the area would not damage their vehicles. Now that’s a good neighbor. (CTN photo by Larry Kennedy)
