Starting on November 1st and continuing throughout the month, staff members at LSS participated in Movember. Movember is a world wide endeavor to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer and Mens’s health. Members of the LSS staff grew mustaches throughout the month to “Change the Face of Men’s Health.” Other staff members purchased pins to wear throughout the month to show their support.
Besides being a fun conversation piece, we raised $221 for this cause. I’m sure many participants and their family members are pleased the month is over! Please see the before and after picture below!

Please read the message below from individuals running The EHS Martha LaPerle Outreach Program. The program is a testament to the giving nature of the greater Exeter community. I know I am thankful to be a part of it.
During a time when there is so much division in our nation, our community stepped forward and provided holiday baskets to over 150 families in the SAU 16 District. This unity helped many families who are going through difficult journeys. Your kindness of food and gift cards has brightened the holidays for many families who could not have provided this dinner to their families.
On behalf of the “The EHS Martha LaPerle Outreach Program” we would like to thank you for your generosity and kindness. This program will continue to try to help families throughout the year. It couldn’t run without your support.
We feel honored to have the opportunity to work with such a giving group of people from our community. Thank you for your generosity and kindness. Hope the holidays are special for everyone. Please share this e-mail with your group. May 2017 bring your family health and happiness!
