MEREDITH — Inter-Lakes High School will be hosting its Fifth Annual Empty Bowls Dinner on Thursday, November 13 in the Inter-Lakes JR/SR High School Cafeteria from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Empty Bowls is an international project which began in Michigan in the spring of 1991 to help fight hunger. After hearing of this organization, many of students at Inter-Lakes High School joined forces to make a difference and are now extending the offer to members of the community. Art teacher, Janet Sanguedolce's students and the National Honor Society have worked together to create beautiful ceramic bowls in which they will be serving a simple meal of rice or soup at an upcoming dinner. Guests choose a bowl to use that day and to keep as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. In exchange for the meal and bowl, guests give a suggested minimum donation of $10.
This money is donated to a hunger-fighting organization to directly impact those most affected by hunger. Over $600 was raised at Inter-Lakes last year which was donated to the Center Harbor Food Pantry, Meredith Food Pantry, Heifer International and the Inter-Lakes HS Family Food Fund. Donations for food came from Hart's, Mame's, Giuseppe's, George's Diner, Lago's, Canoe and Lavinia's Restaurant. Empty Bowls projects now occur throughout the country with thousands of participants raising millions of dollars to fight hunger.

LACONIA — The lower school students and parents of Laconia Christian Academy held their annual harvest party on Friday evening and a good time was had by all. The party, put together by the lower school staff and the PAC committee, was held in the newly roofed gymnasium at LCA.
Lower school families gathered at 6:30 for an evening of friendly competition and fellowship. Plenty of homemade refreshments were available as well as good old-fashioned cider.
The overall theme for the evening was "Farm Families". Each family came dressed in their best "farmer" outfits, with the Latours getting top honors for participation and originality.
Competitive games were held in stations around the gym. The pumpkin carving first place prize went to the Carignan family, with the McCarthys and Ratzlaffs taking second and third. There were some very creative pumpkin designs thanks to all the carvers.
Apple stacking champions, the Scott family topped the night with a 15 ½ inch high stack. The McCarthys and Latours managed to balance second and third places. Kudos to all families who found the task of apple stacking somewhat frustrating yet addictive. One dad said, "It was fun to see how the simple things become a challenge and engage both child and adult, stacking apples."
The harvest relay race took family teams around the gym in three legs; first a run with an apple under the chin, followed by a human wheelbarrow and finally to the finish line on a stick horse. The Mogees took top relay honors with 19.49 seconds. The McKinneys and the Tyrrells followed at second and third. A very grateful Mrs. Tyrrell wrote, "We had a wonderful time! The children enjoyed the relay race the most. We are so blessed to be a part of the LCA family. Thank you for hosting the Fall Harvest Festival."
