Meredith Historical Society is to present a program on women of the Civil War

MEREDITH — All are invited to the season's first presentation of the Meredith Historical Society at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5 at Meredith Bay Colony Club where David Decker, Civil War Historian, will discuss "Women in the Civil War" and use a Power Point presentation to highlight details.

History classes may discuss Molly Pitcher and her role in the Civil War, but positive documentation also proves that at least two hundred and fifty other women are known to have fought on the Union and Confederate sides. Decker will skillfully explain why he believes it is likely that the number of women who donned soldiers' clothing is closer to four hundred, possibly up to one thousand female soldiers.

Decker is a retired lawyer and avid Civil War buff. He is an eighteen year member of the Civil War Round Table and has lectured throughout New England on many topics related to the Civil War.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact 279-2275.

North Shore Acapella performing at Winnipesaukee Playhouse on Saturday

MEREDITH — North Shore Acappella, which captivated judges and audiences on NBC’s Sing-Off, will perform at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith on Saturday, May 2 at 7 p.m. for the benefit of Genesis Behavioral Health. The program will begin at 7:45 p.m.

As Sam Weisman, Executive Producer and Co-Creator of NBC's The Sing Off noted, "North Shore is just a kick ass a cappella group, so musical, so warm, so funny! On Season 3 of The Sing Off, they gave us class, style, and heart. Everyone loves them!"

In a unique twist as part of their annual “We Care” program, the organizer of this event, Temple B’nai Israel (TBI) of Laconia will contribute the net proceeds of the NSA performance to Genesis Behavioral Health. Genesis is the community mental health center serving Belknap and southern Grafton Counties, providing comprehensive mental health services that promote recovery from mental illness and emotional distress to over 3,500 children, adults, elders and their families each year.
