Getting the Manchester Patch the same day as the Double Dog Rescue event really doesn't give meRead More enough time to participate. I would have liked to have helped out with the building!

Thank goodness I'm not guilty of any of these things . . . except the bacon of course! If you cameRead More to see LTM's production of Our Town, you'd understand why that's funny.

I'm gonna bookmark this and reference it for when the day comes you have a kid. Cause I'm sure theRead More social media king will post pics of his fresh out of the womb alien baby. And your child is YOUR blood, therefore a part of you and if you aren't proud enough to have said baby in your profile pic then that's sad. Also I can't wait til you get projectiled pooped on....at that moment it won't be disgusting but you will just laugh hysterically cause well you got POOPED on. I wouldn't blog about dogs cause I don't have any so you shouldn't blog about babies til you have them. Now I'm going to go post your embarassing baby pics all over facebook and tag you. :) love your sister ♥

Terry has done so much for the town. She works hard herself and inspires other volunteers! TerryRead More believes in Manchester and the need to retain its charm. Right now she's working on the Save The Park committee, to protect Center Memorial Park from encroachment by a library addition.

We would like to first thank the Parla family for 50+ years, and still going, of contributions toRead More the community. Terry, in her manner, stated "We started a glass and paper collection behind Town Hall..." This meant the Parla family and their friends showed up in the parking lot with barrels, mallets, string, and physically smashed glass, tied paper, and had it delivered to the recycling facility. For more than 40 years, the Parla family has contributed, and continues to contribute, volunteer services to St. James School, including hundreds of Lenny's meatballs, salad, spaghetti, pancakes; painting the schools' classrooms; running auctions; lunch duty; candy bar sales; etc., etc. Terry and Lenny appeared on the Charter Oak Greenway across from Highland Park Market to welcome cyclists as they traveled to Canada. Terry was surprised to be recognized from the podium as an outstanding volunteer in Manchester. As she came forward to accept recognition, she was wearing a t-shirt supporting the volunteer effort of Doug Smith, Doug MacGillvary, Jackie Mirtl, and other members of the Hockanum River Linear Park Maintenance Crew. Thank you, Team Parla!
