Fall Fun at Foliage Festival This Weekend

MEREDITH — Fun and food abound at Moulton Farm's Foliage Festival on Saturday and Sunday, October 4 & 5. The festival, which will run both days from 10 am to 3 pm , includes family fun activities including tractor rides to the farm's "pick your own" pumpkin patch, visits with farm animals, fun fall games, a bounce house for children and more. Food for lunches will be available. Both of the farm's corn mazes will be open as will Cider Bellies.

On Saturday, "doughnut on a string" eating contests provide laughs and great pictures at noon and 2 pm. Join in or watch as people attempt, without using their hands, to be the first to eat a Cider Bellies doughnut swinging on a string. The contests are back this year after making their debut at the farm's festival last year. "I'm not sure who had more fun last year – the people in the contest or the people watching," says Rob Stephens, the retail manager at the farm. "There was a lot of laughing and lots of pictures being taken."

On both Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting, visitors can go up in a helicopter and get an aerial view of the farm, corn mazes and the area. C-R Helicopters is offering these special rides for $30 per person. Riders can even test their aim from the air by participating in a pumpkin toss contest. "It'll be the height of your day if you try it," says Stephens with a smile. He speaks from experience as he took the pictures of the farm's corn maze during a ride with C-R several weeks ago.

The festival and most activities are free of charge, although there will be a charge for entry to the farm's corn maze and helicopter rides.

Moultonborough Lions dedicate gazebo in memory of Ed Dobson

MOULTONBOROUGH — Moultonborough Lions Club paid tribute to Lion Ed Dobson, who passed away in March, by dedicating the gazebo in his memory. The gazebo was one of Ed’s favorite projects and he took pride in helping to build it.

Lion Ed was a dedicated Lion with perfect attendance for 23 years. He served on almost every committee and chaired many of them. He was on the Roadside Clean-up gang for 14 years and the Building & Grounds Committee for 16 years.
He also served as Treasurer and President of the club and was part of the group of Moultonborough Lions who started the Annie Forts “UP” Syndrome Fund and was Treasurer of that fund for many years. He was Lion of the Year 3 times and was honored with the Melvin Jones Fellow Award, the highest award in Lionism. He was also a recipient of the Granite State Fellow Award. Lion Ed certainly epitomized the Lions motto “WE SERVE”.
To find out more about Lionism please call Lions Joe & Pat Keegan at 253-9916 or Lion John Menken at 207-7211.
