---- — Advanced summer media camp set

The Londonderry Access Center hosts an advanced summer media camp event Aug. 5-9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The camp is open to students entering sixth through ninth grade in the fall of 2013. Students must have previously taken the beginner summer media camp or had complete training with the Access Center.

The cost of the camp is $35 and payment is required to reserve a space.

Londonderry residents can register first. Residents from other towns can register if space permits.

Students will learn advanced skills in television production and will produce a TV show of their own. For information or to register, call Erin at 432-1147.

Democrats elect delegates, officers

The Londonderry Democratic Committee elected officers and convention delegates on March 27. The delegates will attend the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s 2013 Midterm Convention and the 2014 State Convention.

The committee re-elected Tammy Siekmann as chairman, and elected Nancy Hendricks as vice chairman, Mary Tetreau as treasurer, and Cynthia Combes as secretary.

“Londonderry Democrats are energized by the results of last November’s elections,” Siekmann said. “We intend to stay active to support the important work of President Obama, Gov. Hassan, and all the other Democrats we helped to elect. We encourage the people of Londonderry to work with us to keep moving New Hampshire and the country forward.”

The convention delegates are: Timothy Siekmann, Gary Vermillion, Paul Skudlarek, Robin Skudlarek, Edward Combes, Don Jorgensen, Bryan Merrill, Miranda Fairbrother, Lisa Whittemore, Pam Jorgensen, Mary Tetreau, Tammy Siekmann, Cynthia Combes, Jerry Conner, Larry Furano and Pat Furano.

Get ready for the annual toy swap/sale

The Londonderry Women’s Club will host the Annual Toy Swap/Sale on Saturday, May 4, in the gym at Matthew Thornton School.

This is a great opportunity to sell children’s and baby’s items that are no longer being used, but that are still in good shape. It is a consignment sale, with the price being set by the owner.

The owner receives two-thirds of the money for which the item sells and the Londonderry Women’s Club keeps the remaining one-third. This year, proceeds will benefit the ALERT program in town.

Registration forms with complete instructions can be found at Leach Library. The following items may be sold:

baby equipment (bassinets, strollers, etc.); sporting goods, Halloween costumes; games, books and wooden puzzles.

Stuffed animals, cribs, car seats and regular clothing cannot be accepted.

Registration is from 7:30 to 9 a.m. The sale is from 9:30 a.m. to noon on May 4.

This is a great place to pick up toys and equipment for your children that are in great shape, but don’t have a big price tag and benefits a great cause.
