Surprise! There's an election today


The drive is being conducted by the National Association of Letter Carriers, who note that the drive comes at a time when most food pantries have exhausted their supply of food from the holidays and need to restock their shelves for the summer.

All non-perishable food items are being accepted, and the most needed items include peanut butter, jelly, canned tuna, canned chicken, pasta sauce, baked beans, canned meals, macaroni and cheese, canned fruit, canned vegetables, boxed juice, healthy granola bars, trail mix, dried fruit, cooking oil, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, shelf-stable milk, applesauce, cereal, pasta, shampoo, deodorant and large-sized diapers.


The following meetings are scheduled this week and are open to the public:


State Primary Election for vacant U.S. Senate seat, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Amesbury High School


Conservation Commission meeting, 6:30 p.m., City Hall Auditorium

Historical Commission meeting, 7 p.m., 9 School St.
