CC Youth Hockey thanks supporters

To the Editor:

The Concord/Carlisle Youth Hockey Organization just celebrated their fifth annual fundraiser dinner, and it was a great success. Many thanks go out to the committee that pulled this event together, Holly Salemy, Linda Rubenstein, Jill Appel, Nancy Messina, Lisa Badgley, and Linda Fabrizio. Emceeing the event was Peter Bagley, who kept us in stitches by roasting Phil Mara, CCYH President, who will be retiring his position after being in the program for 10 years in which he served 8 years as president. Congratulations to our raffle winners Fred Rubenstein and Julie Sample for winning the 50/50 raffle. The Board would also like to thank all our members that donated and to the following organizations that contributed to this event to make it such a success. Without everyone's generous donations, we would not have been able to raise over $20,000 to benefit the hockey development for our organization. Your support is greatly appreciated by CCYH. Thank you everyone.

Library's used book sale needs volunteers

To the Editor:

The Friends of the Gleason Public Library Used Book Sale, held in May - June, is an annual event for the entire community. However, in order to make it happen this year, we are in need of two people to chair this event and also need a storage area for the books, such as a barn, basement or unused garage. In addition, we need the help of several volunteers to help sort books prior to the sale, as well as to work on the day of the book sale. Please e-mail: or call Friends President Anjli Trehan at 1-978-371-0374 if you are able to help.

COA Outreach Coordinator praised

To the Editors:

I enjoyed reading the recent article about the people who work for the Council on Aging. However, the article left me a bit mystified as to why Susan Evans was not appointed to the position of director upon Liz Jewell's departure. As the current Outreach Coordinator, and longtime volunteer, Susan appears to be uniquely qualified for the position. She has the added advantage of having personal relationships with our senior population, which contributes to a deeper understanding of their needs and concerns.

It seems like an opportunity to best serve our seniors was missed.
