GILFORD — If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a book coming out about Gilford should be priceless. With a little help from generous townspeople, the book surely will be.
Local resident Dee Chitty is looking for old photographs that might be used in ''Gilford, a pictorial history'' to be published by Arcadia Publishing in its images of America series.
The importance of family collections cannot be overemphasized. Vintage photographs become increasingly fragile and by scanning and reproducing them in a book, they become available for all to see.

MEREDITH — Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy, the much-loved March sisters of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, will be brought to life onstage by The Winnipesaukee Playhouse's Teen Ensemble on January 17-19.
Adapted by Marian de Forest, this production of Little Women features 12 local performers between the ages of 12-18. It is a "coming of age" drama set during the American Civil War for which the girls' father is away serving as a minister to the troops. The family, headed by their beloved mother, Marmee, must struggle to make ends meet, with the help of their kind and wealthy neighbor, Mr. Laurence, and his high spirited grandson Laurie.
Alcott's novel was loosely based on her own family. Written at the urging of her publisher, Little Women was a departure from the typical books for young people at the time. It was an immediate critical and popular success, selling out its first printing and inspiring a sequel. There have been several successful film adaptations of the novel and it is still popular reading material today.
The Playhouse's production is directed by Brett Billings with a set by Josh Jansen and period costumes by Lesley Pankhurst. It features live musicians, also teens, who will be performing period-appropriate music.
Tickets for Little Women cost $14 for the orchestra and $10 for the balcony. They can be reserved in advance by calling (603) 279-0333 or visiting www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org. Performances will be Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. and they take place at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse, 50 Reservoir Road in Meredith.
