Matt Stubbs Blues Band playing at Pitman’s on Friday

LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room will hold a Dance Night with The Matt Stubbs Blues Band featuring Dennis Brennan on Friday, November 14 at 8 p.m.
Matthew Stubbs was named the 2009 Outstanding Guitarist from Blues Audience Magazine and was a 2009 Boston Music Award Nominee for Blues Act of the year. Boston-based roots guitarist Stubbs has a wicked way with a groove and an ability to conjure vintage tones. His tasty arrangements make that vintage hard to pinpoint, thanks to the way he mixes swinging blues, funk, surf rock, and prickly R&B licks.
Dennis Brennan is a cagey veteran who can electrify audiences with his ability to cross brilliantly from rock to soul, blues, country, and jazz, while breathing fresh life into each. He has been nominated for 4 NEMO awards and has won 2 NEMO awards for "Outstanding Roots Rock Band.
Catered dinner buffet available before the show. Tickets to the show are $15 per person. BYOB. Call 527-0043 for reservations or visit www.pitmansfreightroom.com.

AutoServ Tilton installs high-tech HVAC systems

TILTON — Save Energy Systems, Inc. of Somervillle, Mass., is pleased to announce the installation of its energy management control solution, the DLC, at the AutoServ Dealer Group facility in Tilton. The system is operational throughout the 50,000 sq. ft. facility and covers five manufacturer's showrooms, three customer lounges, dealership offices and service areas.

Save Energy Systems has been installing their innovative energy efficiency technology, which is focused on reducing existing HVAC systems operating costs, throughout New England in small to medium sized commercial and industrial facilities including auto dealers, health clubs, banks, churches, distributors, manufacturers and commercial offices over the past 2 years.

Roland Gamelin, AutoServ Director of Operations, says "I appreciate the ability of monitoring and controlling the facility's HVAC systems remotely from my phone or I-Pad while off site. The simple-to-use web interface provides me with full control, even during off hours."

"We're looking forward to reducing energy costs, but just as important, we're doing what we can to reduce energy consumption for the benefit of the environment", says Dennis Gaudet, CEO of AutoServ.

The cost of the system was offset in part by an energy efficiency incentive rebate from Public Service of New Hampshire, a Northeast Utilities company.

Local Lions Club gives $5,000 to Operation KidSight


MOULTONBOROUGH — At its regular monthly dinner meeting, the Moultonborough Lions Club presented a check for $5,000 to New Hampshire Lions Sight and Hearing for Operation KidSight (OKS). Accepting the check was 1st District Vice Governor Scott Wilson.

Wilson was instrumental in getting a matching $53,000 grant from Lions International Fund to purchase 15 vision-screening machines for Operation KidSight. The cost will be $106,000 and will bring the total number of machines for use in New Hampshire to 19.

These new vision-screening machines are much smaller and more sophisticated than the four the Lions have used in the past and can detect early signs of six distinct eye abnormalities, including near and far sightedness as well as eye misalignment and unequal refractive power problems. Approximately 100 students can be screened in under an hour using these new screening machines.

The goal of Operation KidSight is to provide vision-screening opportunities for children from age 6 months through 12th grade. As screening units become

available and club members receive the requisite training, the Moultonborough Lions Club will be offering testing to all children within the communities it serves.

Lion Mark Cotrupi has volunteered to co-ordinate OKS for the Moultonborough Lions and will work closely with Lion Scott. Seven Moultonborough Lion members have volunteered to assist him in this endeavor.

Inter-Lakes High School students attend ‘Stand Up’ summit in Manchester

MEREDITH — Three ​Inter-Lakes High School ​students attended ​the STAND UP New Hampshire Action and Training Summit at Manchester Community College with students from over​ fifty​ NH high ​schools. The students​ are part of Teens Against Destructive Decisions, a school club that ​
encourages​ healthy choices for all students.

Students were invited from across NH to participate in education and training to help develop bullying prevention programs at their​ schools. The students learned new information and exchanged ideas and strategies to implement into their own schools. The summit was led by bullying prevention experts from the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center (MARC) and the Browne Center for Innovative Learning at UNH.

Last year, Inter-Lakes participated with approximately ​twenty five students grades 7-12 in a​ STAND UP to Bullying seminar with ​over ​four thousand​ students. According to the 2013​ Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 23.8% of NH students reported​
having been bullied on school property in the last 12 months and 18.9% of NH students reported​ having been electronically bullied in the past 12 months. The STAND UP NH Action and Training​ S​ummit focused on training the students to be leaders in Bullying prevention in their schools​, in the hope of reducing those numbers. Working together, schools, students, families and communities can ​encourage individuals to STAND UP and make healthy choices for successful lives.
