Wildlife and Magic at Gilmanton Year-Round Library

Squam Lakes Natural Science Center comes to the Library on Thursday, June 26 at 6 p.m. with a program on New Hampshire wildlife. Join us as we learn all about some non-human New Hampshire natives. Not only are we all going to learn new things, but we will be visited by a very special four-legged guest whose identity is top secret. Stop by early to get your front row seat and discover who the mystery guest is.

Magician Peter Boie, with his presentation on Magic for Nonbelievers will amaze children of all ages on Tuesday, July1 at 6 p.m. Peter first became fascinated with magic at the age of eleven when he stumbled across a magic book at his local library. He now travels around the country performing his award winning magic. Peter's show is about two things, astonishing magic, and having a good time; and he doesn't skimp on either.

Both programs are free and open to the public. All are welcome. For more information about the Library and its programs check the website, www.gyrla.org.

Plymouth Dems holding garden tour fundraiser

PLYMOUTH — Summer is the time for one of those great New England traditions—the annual garden tour! Those who love gardening, or just love to see beautiful gardens, join the Plymouth Area Garden Tour on Saturday, July 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The tour will provide an opportunity to enjoy private home gardens in the picturesque towns of Holderness, Plymouth, Campton, and Rumney. Experience the beauty of nine gardens alive with the sights, smells, and sounds of blooming nature. The chosen gardens represent up to three decades of dedicated plantings and landscaping, and the result is stunning.

Some of our local gardeners have negotiated hilly terrain containing ledge and countless rocks. Others have chosen land with sandy soil and giant white pines. Each gardener has to constantly battle the encroaching forest and harsh winters. These gardens show the creativity of their owners, working under challenging conditions.

It is always inspiring to see what other people do with their outdoor space, and those who would like to learn how to create outdoor "rooms", what to plant in shade or sun, and what grows well in our specific climate, this tour offers a lot. Meet many of the talented and resourceful gardeners during the tour.

The tour is sponsored by the Plymouth Area Democrats to help fund the campaigns for local and state candidates. Tickets are available in advance for $18 by calling 236-1122 or 536-1920. On the day of the tour starting at 9:30, tickets will be $20 and can be purchased at the Plymouth Senior Center, Railroad Square, Plymouth.
