Hats off to Stonyfield
Once again, Stonyfield Organic in Londonderry is offering a message on colorful caps to those visiting for various reasons, including candidates running for president. On a recent visit by Democratic candidate and former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick, a table in the company's cafeteria was filled with caps sporting the message "Make Earth Cool Again," a tribute to the company's strong views on a safe, clean environment.
When Democratic presidential candidate Deval Patrick paid a visit to Stonyfield Organic as part of mulit-day bus tour around New Hampshire, Stonyfield co-founder Gary Hirshberg said the candidate traveled in style. The large blue bus parked outside the Londonderry facility's main entrance while Patrick was inside.
"Check out his bus," Hirshberg told guests arriving to hear Patrick speak. "It's awesome, the best decaling I've seen."
Calling all snowflakes
It's a quest and call going out for some snow to fall before the annual Frost Festival is held in Derry on Sunday, Feb. 16. Some past years have produced minimal snowfall, but organizers hope for some of the white stuff in time for a day of sledding fun, outdoor activities, and plenty of cool weather fun, centered at Alexander-Carr Park off Pierce Avenue. The day also includes a petting farm, ice sculptures, and indoor activities inside the park lodge.
A final push
As the New Hampshire presidential primary nears on Feb. 11, candidates running for the top office will most likely make a few more stops in towns around the region to drum up more voter support and hopefully earn big numbers at the polls on voting day. Polls are open in Derry and Windham from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and in Londonderry voters get an early morning jump with polls open 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
