WOLFEBORO — On Friday April 10, Appalachian Mountain Teen Project (AMTP) and the Kingswood Youth Center (KYC) will be co-hosting a second Teen Night at the KYC.
The theme is going to be a game night modeled after "Minute to Win It", having the teens take on 60-second challenges using objects that are commonly available around the house. The event will take place from 5:30-8 p.m. for students in grades 7-12 and will provide games, dinner, and time with friends.
AMTP and the KYC are excited to be collaborating on this project together. The hope is to continue providing teens a safe and fun place to spend time on weekends, while also helping teens flourish in a substance-free environment. The AMTP Youth Leadership Council (AYLC) members, teens who have participated in AMTP programming for at least one year, are helping to design and plan the Teen Nights. The hope is to continue collaborating with the teens of KYC as well in order to bring more ideas and creativity to the table. If these once a month Teen Nights continue to grow, the AMTP and KYC hope to continue expanding into more weekend programming next year.
AMTP is a community-based, nonprofit organization committed to supporting healthy development and resilience in youth, families and communities throughout the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. For more news and information on AMTP, call (603) 569-5510, visit the website www.teenprojectnh.org, "Like" us on Facebook, and sign up for our quarterly e-newsletter.

WOLFEBORO — Moose Mountains Regional Greenways will hold its 2015 Annual Meeting on Sunday, April 12, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Club 59 Restaurant, Kingswood Golf Club.
This festive occasion will start with a cocktail/social hour and silent auction, followed by a buffet luncheon, award presentation, brief business meeting, update on MMRG news, and stories by writer John Harrigan. In case of snow or other weather emergency, it will be postponed to Monday evening, April 13, from 6 to 9 p.m.
The silent auction serves as entertainment and fundraiser, with proceeds supporting MMRG's land conservation and educational outreach work. All auction items are donated by area businesses and individuals. This year's selection includes a hand-made 'Sunshine' crazy quilt, a four-person lobster boat excursion, a vacation rental on Lovell Lake, gifts for birdwatchers, art pieces, nature books, and a variety of gift certificates and other items too numerous to mention.
The program centerpiece is 'Caution, Harrigan Crossing Ahead: Reflections on 40 Years of Woods, Water and Wildlife', in which John Harrigan will recount tales of rural life in the New Hampshire North Country. Harrigan is a writer and radio commentator, a jack of all trades, and a farmer and ardent conservationist. Now in his 46th year of newspapering, he has been founder, owner, publisher, editor and journalist at various newspapers. His Woods, Water and Wildlife column ran in the New Hampshire Sunday News for 40 years and his North Country Notebook is currently published in a dozen weekly Salmon Press papers, including the Granite State News.
MMRG works to conserve and connect important water resources, farm and forest lands, wildlife habitats, and recreational land in Brookfield, Farmington, Middleton, Milton, New Durham, Wakefield, and Wolfeboro.
