Exhibit space available at 7th Annual Alton Rotary Home Show on April 25


ALTON — The Alton Rotary's 7th Annual Home, Garden and Food Show will be held at Prospect Mountain High School on Saturday, April 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will feature exhibits by many local and regional businesses, including food, home building, gardening and civic non- profit organizations.

"We are well ahead of last year, at this time, for the number of businesses who have reserved booth space for this year's Home Show" reports Alton Centennial Rotary Club President David Bloser. "But we still have room for a few more."

There will be a number of Rotary raffles to win prizes such as a digital camera, Netbook computer, DVD player, 10.1 tablet, and a flat screen TV. All proceeds are donated by Rotary back into the community to charities and for special needs. Public admission is free and the Prospect Mountain School junior class will be selling lunches to help them raise money for their 2016 class trip.

Workshop on executive functioning in students

LACONIA — A workshop to provide a clearer understanding of certain procedures that apply to students with learning and attention issues will be held Tuesday, April 21, from 5:50 to 7 p.m. at Lakes Region Community Services, 719 North Main St.

The free workshop, say organizers, will cover what are technically called Executive Functions -- skills that people use every day to plan ahead, stay organized, solve problems and focus. Children who have deficits in these areas struggle at home and in school.

This workshop will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of how executive functioning impacts children educationally, and how a Section 504 Plan and / or an Individualized Education Plan (I.E.P.) can address these needs in order to support their learning.

Pre-Registration is required and can be done through Lakes Region Community Services by contacting Karen McDowell at 603-524-8811, est. 1544, or emailing her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
