WOLFEBORO — Over dessert at Brewster Head of School Mike Cooper and wife Andrea's residence recently, James C. Curvey, vice chairman of Fidelity Investments, and his wife, Shirley ,met the three youngest Curvey Scholars. They offered advice to all the scholars as they move into the new school year at Brewster Academy, and Curvey fielded questions from some of the students.
Each year, three incoming local freshmen are awarded Curvey Scholarships, thanks to the generosity of the Curvey family who reside in Alton. This year's freshman scholars are Roy Gardiner of Gilford and Tara Fitzpatrick and Catriona Lennon of Wolfeboro.
Recalling Jim Curvey's commencement speech to the Class of 2013 and his focus on the importance of relationships, one student asked Curvey how his own relationships have shaped him. Curvey talked about the importance of building relationships and making connections in the workplace. ''Find the people that will provide you with the best management that you can learn from, and when you are asked to do three things – do four, ''he said.
Another question for Curvey: does he think technology, such a big part of students' lives today, is positive or negative. He sees both the positives and negatives. ''It changes so fast – while we sleep – and it is filled with opportunity to be creative and entrepreneurial."Take advantage of that, but keep a balance in your lives. Don't forget about the importance of personal relationships." he said.

TILTON — The Doric-Centre Lodge in Tilton will be one of 65 Masonic Lodges holding a special open house on Saturday, Oct 19, to give the people of their communities an unrestricted look at who Masons are and what they do.
The lodge will have displays and tours and will also have a grill going from 12:30 to 3 p.m.
The purpose of the special Open House, involving 65 Masonic Lodges from Portsmouth to Colebrook, is to demonstrate to people how Freemasonry relates to local communities and attempts through its members to promote social well being.
"The people hosting this event are the very people of our own local communities," said Stewart Aronson, Grand Master of New Hampshire's 6,400 Masons. "We live, work and play like everyone else, share the same concerns for our kids, like everyone else and work to make our communities better places to live, just like everyone else.
The times, Aronson added, demand that people have a chance to see for themselves what's "behind our closed doors and to have a sense of the genuine passion we Masons share for the social and spiritual values we embrace."
In keeping with the Grand Master's objectives, doors to local Masonic Lodges will open promptly at 9 a.m. and remain open until 3 p.m. Member Masons from their own communities will be on hand to answer questions and give guided tours to explain the significance of Lodge furniture, ornaments, jewels and working tools used in private Masonic ceremonies. Lodge members will also address how these symbols of the fraternity apply to its charitable work and the community service work of its members.
