SANDWICH — Come help celebrate the remarkable role women have played in the 250-year history of Sandwich. An ice cream social at the Benz Center (Heard Road in Center Sandwich) at 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 21 will feature Congresswoman Carol Shea Porter highlighting the many valuable contributions women have made to the town.
Beyond their work with home and hearth, women have participated as Selectmen, support staff for the Selectmen, Town Clerks, Supervisors of the Checklist and Ballot Inspectors and in many other roles. According to Sandwich New Hampshire, 1763-1990, Mrs. John Prescott, among the first group of settlers, "ran to get over the line to Sandwich first." Her eagerness persists in the women who serve the town today.
Robin Dustin will offer general comments on women in Sandwich and introduce Carol Shea Porter, who will briefly speak of women in town, state and national government and recognize the specific achievements of some very special Sandwich women.
At the conclusion of her talk, the floor will be open for anyone present to recognize and celebrate a woman in Sandwich who has made a positive difference in our community. Speakers are requested to keep their comments brief, so as many people as possible can express their recognition and appreciation.

071913 Weirs Jazz Bar Expands to Three Nights: Shows Thursday, Saturday & Sunday (400 w/ 2 col. Jonathan Lorentz photo)
LACONIA — The Jazz Bar at Tower Hill, located at 290 Lakeside Ave, Laconia, will expand to three nights of live jazz music this week, with performances Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free. Full bar, dinner, and desserts are available. Info www.NHJazz.com (603) 366-9100
Tower Hill Entertainment proprietors Jay and Anthony Santagate are setting out to create "NH's own jazz mecca" at Weirs Beach. In the wake of a sold-out opening night at the Jazz Bar, and having already gained the attention of the regional media outlets (including NH Magazine), the two brothers are working to create visits to Weirs from all parts of New England, as well as locally. The Santagates (both tireless restaurant and music club devotees) recently renovated the space that has become the Jazz Bar and have since filled it with jazz history, including: portraits, classic records, and vintage horns.
The weekend ahead includes three shows, each offering a unique jazz club experience.
Thursday July 18 @ 8 p.m: Richard Gardzina performs with the Jazz Bar Trio. No Cover
Saxophonist Richard Gardzina's rich tone and swing-heavy melodic style have garnered him the reputation as a "timeless troubadour." Fellow saxophonist Jonathan Lorentz calls Gardzina "a mentor and guru for up-and-coming saxophonists. He's Stan Getz, John Coltrane, and Clarence Clemmons all in one."
Saturday July 20 @ 9 p.m.: Good Places, feat. Ian Sleeper, Charlie Weinmann & Kevin Ashley. No Cover
Good Places plays modern groove-jazz that borrows from blues, funk and the classic rock sounds of Zeppelin, Floyd and Skynyrd. Now six years in the running, this band continues to hone their musical chops, with two members at UNH and a third (Kevin Ashley) serving in the United States Marine Corps Band. The group (all originally from the Lakes Region) will play a rare no-holds-barred reunion show at the Jazz Bar that is likely to go into the wee hours, and may feature special sit-in guests.
Sunday July 21 @ 5:30 p.m.: Jonathan Lorentz Trio. No Cover
Lorentz plays modern NY-style tenor saxophone, with heavy influence from jazz of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Playing tunes from the great American songbook, Jon likes to rediscover classic jazz standards and present them through the lens of exciting improvisations.
