Inter Lakes Active Seniors to learn about acupuncture and Tai Chi on July 16


MEREDITH -- The Inter Lakes Collaborative for Active Seniors will be sponsoring a demonstration on acupuncture with Heidi Eberhardt and Tai Chi with instructor Russ Jones on Wednesday, July 16, at 11 a.m. in the Senior Room of the Meredith Community Center.

The collaborative -- or ICAS -- had its inception several weeks ago when the Community Action Program renounced its affiliation in Meredith. Now the tri-town seniors of Meredith, Center Harbor and New Hampton have come together. These active elders are creating new programs specific to their specific needs.

The acupuncture and Tai Chi demonstrations are being offered under the auspices of Meredith Parks and Recreation.

As ICAS focuses on health, wellness and living life to its fullest, these medical alternatives alleviate pain and assist with balance, movement and agility. We hope to see you take advantage of these opportunities to better health.

Belknap County Extension looking for master gardeners

LACONIA — Belknap County Extension is looking for volunteers to share their gardening knowledge and experience with Belknap County residents in the Extension's Master Gardener program.

Current Master Gardener projects include working with schools to create gardens, developing a demonstration garden to share with the public, providing garden workshops in the winter and spring months, and working with local municipalities in identifying invasive plants. Volunteers who are interested in public speaking are especially needed this year to provide educational workshops to libraries, garden clubs, and other community groups.

Prerequisites for becoming a Master Gardener are a demonstrated personal commitment to volunteerism, a passion for gardening, and an enthusiasm for sharing knowledge with others. Volunteers will be required to undergo 13 weeks of training in a combination of classroom and outdoor activities. Instructors provide an overview of major horticulture subjects, environmentally sound gardening practices, food safety, and issues affecting New Hampshire residents and homeowners.

Students are also introduced to the practical aspects of becoming a volunteer Extension Educator: risk management, project management, public speaking, communications, team dynamics, computer skills and problem solving. The cost of this training is $250, and class size is limited. Training will begin Tuesday, Sept. 9, in Concord. Scholarships are available. Classes are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each Tuesday through Dec. 9.

Graduates of the training will then be required to complete 55 hours of volunteer service in their communities, and with other Belknap County Master Gardeners in order to attain Master Gardener status.

Application must be submitted by July 15. For more information and an application, go to www.extension.unh.edu/master-gardeners.
