MOULTONBOROUGH — As June 26th rapidly approaches, the Moultonborough Friends of the Library are working diligently behind the scenes to make the 2014 House and Garden Tour a special day for both visitors and volunteers.
Funds raised from the tour support cultural and educational programs for adults and children and provide supplemental furnishings and equipment for the library. President, Jane Harrington, and Vice President, Sherry Weene, are the co-chairs for this year's event. Additionally, there are many unspoken heroes also working behind the scenes to bring this event to successful fruition. They include Mary Kahn in charge of sponsors, Marianne Rapp and Linda Ridenour in charge of gifts and refreshments, Noel Ainscow in charge of the raffle, and Ann Marie Welch in charge of tickets. Many thanks as well to the library staff and Bayswater Books who graciously handle ticket sales for this event. The Friends are also most appreciative for the generosity of Cargill Construction Co, LLC, Stephen's Landscaping Professionals LLC, At Your Service NH, and The Magic Foods Catering Company who have so graciously offered to sponsor this year's House and Garden Tour. In 2014, over 30 local merchants have also stepped forward to offer gift certificates for the raffle. Raffle tickets may be purchased during the house tour for $5 per ticket or 3 tickets for $10.
One of the homes on this year's tour greets visitors with a magnificent stone archway original to the property and bedecked with flowers: it is truly a gateway to paradise. Newly renovated 10 years ago, this home has a large fieldstone fireplace centering the Great Room and creating a warm and inviting gathering spot for family and friends. Sweeping walls of windows provide the room with sunny, natural light as well as glistening water views: this superbly appointed home has views from virtually every room.
This spectacular Adirondack style retreat is welcoming and beautifully appointed for lakeside living. Purchase a ticket for $35 at the library or Bayswater Books in Center Harbor and visit this little piece of paradise on Thursday, June 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
