GILFORD — The Gilford Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a six-week pick-up curling program for adults on Thursday evenings. The program will be held at the Arthur A. Tilton Ice Rink from 6:30–7:30 p.m. beginning on January 23 and running through February 27.
Curling is the sport of “sliding stones” down the ice in an attempt to get your “stones” closer to the target than your opponent. Although this activity is held on the ice, participants do not wear ice skates. Participants should dress to be outside and should wear sneakers or boots.
Cost for this program is $2 per evening and participants can register at the start of the program. For more information please contact the Gilford Parks and Recreation Dept. at 527-4722.

LACONIA — Laura Brusseau and Ashley May Halsey are back at it again.
These two local young women founded Dancing with the Lakes Region Stars Charity Event in 2010 as a way to pay for Inter-Lakes High School students to travel to Denver, CO to participate in a Habitat for Humanity trip.

Now, four years later,it is a staple event in the Lakes Region that residents look forward to each and every year.
Brusseau and Halsey explain themselves as just two young women wanting to make a difference in the community.
This year seven local professionals were chosen and paired up with a professional dancer. Each pair will be dancing for a Lakes Region Charity that is near and dear to their hearts. The winner of the event will receive 50% of the shows proceeds to his/her charity. The other six dancers will divvy up the remaining 50% for their charities.
