Meredith Historical Society will hear talk on boats

MEREDITH — The Meredith Historical Society will be treated to a presentation by the NH Boat Museum on June 3 at 7 p.m. Founded in 1992 to "preserve the boating heritage of the New Hampshire lakes," the museum displays vintage mahogany and antique boats from race boats to canoes and sailboats. It also sponsors a vintage race boat regatta, boatbuilding classes for families as well as offering rides in a wooden 28' triple cockpit HackerCraft "woodie" on Lake Winnipesaukee.

Anyone familiar with boating in our area is sure to enjoy the boats and memorabilia displayed in this museum in Wolfeboro.

Lisa Lutts, Director, will give a presentation on its history, programs and everything related to boating in New Hampshire. She has worked in museums for 30 years and became director of the NH Boat Museum two years ago after directing a regional history museum in Tennessee.

The program begins at 7 p.m. at the 45 Main St. building of the Meredith Historical Society. Admission is free and the public is welcome. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact 279-2275.
