Mariaville-Otis News of Neighbors

The What’s for Suppa? Food Pantry is reaching out to the community for volunteers to help with the many functions that make it work so well. Help is needed with suppers and other fund-raisers, tending the pantry, drivers for food pick-up, etc. If you are able to give only a few hours a month, please give Fran a call at 299-8904 or e mail her at [email protected]. Fran says they are always looking for new ideas and to meet new neighbors. The food pantry is located at the Mariaville Grange. It serves the public on the first and third Wednesdays from noon to 4 p.m. Mariaville, Otis, Osborn, Amherst, Aurora and Great Pond residents are welcome to participate.

The Beech Hill School PTC meets on the first Monday of each month, at the school at 6 p.m. Volunteers who would like to participate are welcome and encouraged. The next meeting is Oct. 7.

The PTC will host a family movie night this Friday, Sept. 21, at the school at 6 p.m. Admission is free and $2 will be charged for concession trays. Students in grades K-4 will be watching “The Lorax” and need to be accompanied by an adult. Grades 5-8 will enjoy “Hugo Cabret” and don’t require an adult in attendance. Chaperones will be present at both movies. Come in jammies and bring pillows and blankets.

This year’s Halloween party and hayride, also sponsored by the PTC, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. A scarier hayride for older party-goers will be from 7 to 8. More details to come!

The Beech Hill 4 H Science Club (soon to be renamed The Beech Hill Explorers Club) will be meeting on the last Wednesday of each month, at the school at 6 p.m.

Children ages 5 and up are eligible to join. They are hoping for new members as they expand the focus outside of science and more to the world around us. Please call Stacie Easler at 537-5202 for more information.

Hats off to the many volunteers in our community who help to enrich the lives of our children and the community at large.

Bon voyage to the hummingbirds on their journeys to South America and Mexico. Always sad to see them go, but there is a certain comfort in the rhythm of nature.

Please e-mail [email protected] or call 537-2200 with your community news.
