Teens support Family Promise



Contact: Dawn Edwards


Let’s hear it once again for the teens of Ipswich!

Inspired by the enthusiasm of local resident Cindy Laughton Quimby for the good works being done by Family Promise North Shore, a nonprofit interfaith hospitality network that provides temporary housing and other services for families in transition, the teen-age community of Little Neck stepped up and made a difference.

Several Little Neck teens and Cindy’s two sons, held bake sales, slush sales and knocked on doors for school supplies and cash.

Donations came entirely from the Little Neck community, and from their “Back to School” drive.

14 backpacks, lunch boxes, and an abundance of school supplies were purchased.

In addition, each child received a $50 gift card to Kohl’s for other necessary back to school items.

The very willing teens and children eager to help out where needed are: Avelina Carbone, Will Sullivan, Meghan Lally, Linnea Kelley, Emma Bouley, Maddie Mucher, John Quimby and Charlie Quimby.

The community, parents and Family Promise director, Russell Queen are grateful and so proud of these young people, who look forward to continuing their volunteer relationship with Family Promise.

Eleanor Huffcut


Dear Friends and Parishioners of Ascension Church,

I write to inform you that our parish community has lost a dear one from our midst, Eleanor Huffcut, mother to Jody Huffcut–both of whom have been regular, friendly faces at the early service.

A celebration of Eleanor’s life will be held at 11am on Saturday, July 23rd at Ascension Church.

Blessings upon the beloved soul of Eleanor; may she rest in peace and may the love and compassion of God comfort and sustain her family and friends.

God’s peace,
