BRIDGEWATER — Opponents to Windfarms near Newfound Lake and Cardigan Mountain are holding a silent auction fundraising event on Saturday, August 24 at 6 p.m. at the Inn on Newfound Lake.
The proposal for windfarms on mountain ridges near Newfound Lake and Cardigan Mountain are being opposed, as many feel that they will ruin the natural beauty of the area. The Wild Meadows Legal Fund was founded in December, 2012 and now includes associations and individuals from around the area. Proceeds from the silent auction will go towards successfully advancing a legal opposition to the proposed Wild Meadows wind farm facility if and when its developer, Iberdrola Renewables submits a site permit application to the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee.
In addition to a silent auction, members of the Wild Meadow Legal Fund committee will share their strategy for winning the legal battle.

FRANKLIN — The musical group the Bel Airs will bring their rhythm and blues "doo wop" music to Franklin Opera House on Friday, August 23 at 7:30 pm.
Doo-wop music is a product of "city music" from the east and mid-west. It was originally sang a cappella on the street corners because the musicians didn’t have instruments. The genre took off from there, giving rise to stars such as The Del Vikings, the Five Satins, and the Drifters.
Now the Bel Airs bring their special brand of doo-wop to Franklin Opera House. Tickets for this reserved seat show are $19 for adults and $17 for seniors. For more information or to purchase tickets call 934-1901 or visit www.franklinoperahouse.org.
