Pleasant Street Konvenience gas station and store is open

BERLIN—On April 13 the Pleasant Street Konvenience gas station and store—across from the Dunkin' Donuts in Berlin—is back in business with its usual incredible full service and long-time staff.
Twenty-year veteran Joe Dorval is out there, pumping gas for customers, cleaning their windshields, checking the oil and tires, too, if people so desire. Zach Bacow, with four years at the station, is pumping gas, too.
Stump Legere is managing the station again, continuing his eight years at Pleasant Street. Many will remember him, too, from his years as the owner of Fagin's Pub (1979-2002).
Other long time staff carrying on Pleasant Street's unusual full service reputation include night cashier, Jeanne Provencer, who has been on the job for 12 years; and Corey Rand and Nancy Dupont, both cashiers and both veterans of four years at Pleasant Street Konvenience.

K&S Gold helps seniors improve functional fitness

BERLIN -- K & S Fitness, 55 Maynesboro Street, Berlin, NH, recently started a fitness program for the older, active adult called “K & S Gold”. The program is meant to help “seniors” improve functional fitness. It promotes healthy aging and reduces the risk for injury by focusing on flexibility, balance, and strength. The classes are done mostly seated and a wide variety of small equipment is used such as light hand weights, gliding discs, “squishy” balls, and more. You don’t have to worry about any “jumping around” and participants are encouraged to work at their own pace and have fun! The class is held every Thursday morning from 8-9 a.m. and is led by the very friendly, and motivating AFAA certified instructor, Kim Poulin.
"So far, the ladies who are already participating in the program are having a great time and are feeling wonderful, said Poulin.
If the program interests you, we are making it easy for you to give it a try by offering your first class free! There is no pressure, and no commitment after that because you can pay “by the class” for $5 each class, or pay “by the month” for $20 per month.  If you would like more information or would like to sign up, please feel free to call Kim Poulin at 723-0838 or Sue Martin 723-3965 anytime.
