Pelvic floor disorder program at LRGH on Thursday

LACONIA — On Thursday, November 13 at 5:30 p.m. at Lakes Region General Hospital, Urogynecologist Dr. Carolyn Drake and Licensed Physical Therapist Pauline Archambault will host an educational program to help women impacted by pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) gain the knowledge and confidence they need to evaluate their own pelvic health and address pelvic health issues with their physicians.

Pelvic Floor Disorders occur when there is a weakness of the pelvic muscles which may cause problems, including bladder and bowel control. Pelvic floor disorders impact one in three women, and it is not a natural part of growing older or an unavoidable after effect of giving birth. PFD's can be treated successfully with the help of specialists.

Many women suffer in silence, don't be one of them. Let the experts at LRGHealthcare help to answer your questions. To reserve a spot to attend this free community session, call Community Education Services at 527-7120.

Meeting Thurs. for Destination Imagination in Gilmanton

GILMANTON — There will be an informational meeting for interested families at Gilmanton School on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. about the Destination Imagination program.

Children are welcome to come for fun, crafts, and games that will give them a preview of what it would be like to be a member of a DI team.

Destination Imagination is an internationally acclaimed program for students from kindergarten through college, with over 200,000 participants each year in the U.S. and more than 30 other countries. Students work in small teams for several months to solve a Team Challenge in an imaginative and entertaining manner. These Challenges include both artistic and technical elements, and the end result is part performance, part science project, and part sporting event.

Each team must solve their chosen Challenge on their own. Adults are not allowed to help, except for teaching basic skills that the students might want to learn, such as sewing or the safe use of tools. The students on each team must write their own skit, and design and construct all of their own props and costumes. The teams present their solutions to the Team Challenge at regional tournaments in March, and the highest scoring teams can advance to state and international tournaments.

Those who can't make it to the meeting, but would like to know more about Destination Imagination can contact Judy Wilson (267-6346 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

‘Don’t Drink the Water’ at Winni Playhouse starts Thurs.

MEREDITH — Craziness will abound when the Winni Players Community Theatre Group presents Woody Allen's 1966 comedy Don't Drink the Water on the stage of The Winnipesaukee Playhouse from Thursday, November 13 through Saturday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, November 16 at 2 p.m.

It's the mid-1960s and paranoia and Cold War antics run rampant. The American Ambassador has left the Embassy on business and places his incompetent son Axel Magee in charge. Immediately, the Embassy is thrust into a crisis as the Hollanders, an American family on vacation, come rushing into the Embassy on the run from the Communist Secret Police. Walter Hollander, the father, has accidentally wandered into a high security area and taken pictures, causing the communists to believe that the family are spies. Axel digs the hole deeper and the embassy is surrounded, leaving the Hollanders trapped.

The play was a Broadway hit when it opened, running for 598 performances. The Winni Players production is co-directed by Charles Fray and Johanna Halperin and features 14 local actors including regulars like John Piquado, Katie Dunn, Barbara Webb, Michael Baker, Lynn Dadian, Ken Chapman, Ray Dudley, Diane Nickerson and Dana Gardner. Also featured in the cast are Chris Peck, Lynne Fox, Rita Toth, Steve Copithorne, and Doris Citron.

Tickets are $18 for the orchestra and $10 for the balcony and are available at www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org or by calling (603) 279-0333.
