The Contoocook Chamber of Commerce will officially welcomed the 910 Main Street Building to the village of Contoocook on Thursday. The historical building has been a mainstay of the village’s landscape for decades but was recently bought by local developer Brian Cressy. He is associated with several businesses including Maple Row Management, Elm Brook Capital, Firepoint Properties and a partnership with attorneys Seth Greenblott and Jim O’Rouke, The River Group. He has moved his businesses into the main floor. New to the office space is Knock Knock Social, a digital marketing agency owned by Meredith (Astles) Lee.

Meredith Village Savings Bank recently donated $5,000 to Lakes Region Community Developers in honor of the retirement of Carol Bickford following 37 years of service.

The Merrimack is donating a total of $1,000 to the Friendly Kitchen in Concord, Hooksett Community Food Pantry, Hopkinton Food Pantry, the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter and the Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry in Franklin as a result of their annual Mitten Tree Program. Thanks to the kind support of the community, 388 winter weather accessories, including hats, mittens and scarves, were collected and distributed to local families in need. Community members are asked by the Merrimack each year to donate new handmade or store-bought mittens, hats, scarves and gloves between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day for their annual Mitten Tree Drive. The bank then donates $2 for each item collected.
