GILFORD — A dining-out benefit is being planned to help a local family struggling to pay its bills following a serious accident.
The event to help Michelle Maslanka and her family will take place Sunday, Oct. 5, through Thursday, Oct. 9, at Patrick's Pub and Eatery.
Maslanka and her 6-year-old daughter where involved in a traffic accident on July 22. The daughter was released that evening from the hospital. However, Maslanka is recovering from a broken neck and her colleagues at Awakening Chiropractic in Tilton wanted to help her and her family reduce stress by providing financial assistance to them.
Those who wish to help can do so by dining at Patrick's Oct. 5 through Oct. 9, and telling their server they are there to help the Hook/Maslanka Family. Patrick's will then donate 25 percent of the bill to the family.
Organizers said they are very grateful to Patrick's their support of the effort to help the family.

MEREDITH — The story of one of Meredith's oldest marinas will be presented to the Meredith Historical Society at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 7.
David Hamblet, owner of Y Landing Marina, will discuss its history from the 1950's to its busy status today. How did the current name of the marina originate? Has its focus changed through the years? Who frequents this boat yard on Meredith Neck?
It can be said that Dave Hamblet grew up at the Marina. As a boy his family lived next door to Y Landing. While attending local schools he spent teenage summers and weekends working at the Y Landing store, pumping boat gas and learning engine repair. Now with his own children growing up in the area, he continues to lead his marina staff in keeping Winnipesaukee boaters happily enjoying the lake.
Meredith Historical Society is located at 45 Main Street. This presentation is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact 279-2275.
