Many local restaurants joining 10th annual Keep the Heat On fund raiser

PLYMOUTH — Every year, the committee for the annual Keep the Heat On fundraiser is overwhelmed by the generosity of local restaurants' menu contributions, and this year is no different. As preparations move forward for the 10th annual KTHO dinner and auction on Wednesday, January 14, owners and chefs are again stepping up to offer their delicious creations to make this event special and to help their community.

For the past nine years, KTHO has raised nearly $250,000 for fuel assistance to local communities, and hopes to hit the $300,000 mark this year. Loyal restaurants return to support this year's effort with promises of the same high culinary standards that KTHO supporters have come to expect over the years—or better.

Sodexo leads the list of long-term supporters, with Plymouth State University's Prospect Hall hosting KTHO for the second year. Students from the Plymouth Regional High School culinary program will be back for the fourth time with their scrumptious cupcakes for dessert.

New in 2015 will be two Rumney favorites--the Common Café and Rumney Rocks Bistro. The "Rocks" just opened in 2014 and is already stepping up to support the community.

Plymouth's Main Street will once again be represented by an all-star lineup that includes Biederman's Deli, Burrito Me, Cafe Monte Alto, Chase Street Market, the Lucky Dog, Mandarin Taste, Downtown Pizza, Six Burner Bistro, and Thai Smile. Other area restaurants joining the effort again include Annie's Overflow, the Country Cow, Fugaky, George's Seafood, Mad River Tavern, Remington's, the Sunset Grill, the Tree House, and Walter's Basin. The Common Man Family of restaurants will also join in once again with contributions from the Common Man Ashland, Fosters Boiler Room, The Flying Monkey, and The Italian Farm House. More restaurants in Plymouth and the surrounding area may also participate.

The 10th annual KTHO will begin with appetizers served during the 5 p.m. social hour and a silent auction with many high-quality contributed items and services. Look for the folks wearing "stove pipe" hats who will be selling raffle tickets for some very special items. This will be followed by the bountiful dinner buffet and a spirited live auction with auctioneers Lisa Lovett and Terri Daucher, a wonderful entertaining team. A cash bar will be open throughout the evening.

Tickets for KTHO are on sale at Chase Street Market for $35, and in limited quantities again this year. To reserve a table, call Veronica Barbadoro at 536-7207. KTHO is organized and sponsored by the Plymouth Area Democrats, partnered with the Plymouth Area Community Closet in their continued mission to provide assistance to our neighbors. KTHO—and the fuel assistance it helps provide—are entirely non-partisan.

Open house at Sanbornton Public Library on Dec. 10

SANBORNTON — The Sanbornton Public Library will hold an open house on Saturday, Dec. 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., hosted by the Library Board of Trustees.

Refreshments will be available in the café area.

Upstairs, children will find everything they need to make their own gingerbread house to take home. The ongoing book sale in the entry way will be fully stocked with donated, gently used books for sale.

Once again, the Library has hung a stocking with care in hopes of gifts of storytime supplies (glue sticks, washable markers, and stickers), puzzles and Legos, and gift cards for books and more. Last year's gifts were a great
addition to our children's program activities.

As winter approaches, two groups are trying to help our neighbors as winter approaches. Luke Morrison is collecting new socks and clean blankets for area homeless for his Eagle Scout project. And the local 4-H Club is collecting canned goods for the local food pantry. Collection boxes are in the library.
