MOULTONBOROUGH — Moultonborough Historical Society's next evening historical program will be held on Monday, September 8 at 7 p.m. at the Lamprey House Museum on Route 25. The topic will be "The History of the Moultonborough Post Office."
Being a fairly large town geographically, Moultonborough once had five post offices-East Moultonboro, Red Hill, Winnipesaukee, Long Island, and just plain Moultonborough. The program will cover the history of the postal service, which dates back to at least 1832.
The Historical Society will also be hosting its fifth annual Monte Carlo Night Fundraiser on Saturday, October 4. There will be a buffet dinner at the Lions Club, followed by games of blackjack, roulette, craps, and Texas Hold-em, plus a 50/50 raffle starting at $500. Tickets are $25 per person and are available through the Historical Society website at MoultonboroughHistory.org, or by contacting Mary at 707-0206.

LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in downtown Laconia will host the Erik Ray One Man Blues Band on Friday, August 29, at 8 pm. Admission is $12 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Montana native Erik Ray has spent the past three decades purveying his brand of blues in the rough and tumble roadhouses and honky tonks of the Northwest. His unique One Man Band show has thrilled audiences and kept rowdy dance hall floors full. Steeped in the traditions of Delta and Chicago style blues, Traditional Country, Folk, Zydeco and Early Rock, Erik's pulsing slide guitar and harmonica, along with his intense vocals and syncopated foot rhythms, strive to keep the Blues spirit alive and moving forward.
Erik recently relocated to New Hampshire, shifting his cowboy lifestyle to pursue a new chapter of life in the Granite State and quickly earned the right to represent NH in the International Blues Challenge and make his way all the way to the finals in Memphis.
Catered dinner buffet available before the show. Call 494-3334 for reservations. www.pitmansfreightroom.com.
