Wine’ing Butcher opening at former Meat House locations in Bedford, Pembroke

GILFORD — The Wine’ing Butcher will soon open its doors in former Meat House locations in Pembroke and Bedford.

No stranger to the Granite State, the Wine’ing Butcher has two locations in the Lakes Region and has become well known to both New Hampshire residents and those traveling through the area ever since Andrew and Gretchen Arguin opened the first location in Gilford on the fourth of July, 2006.  Three years later they opened their second location in Meredith.   
Though The Wine’ing Butcher is expanding, the quality and uniqueness of this small town market will remain the same.  The Wine’ing Butcher will continue to offer hand select quality products and provide dedicated, knowledgeable customer service. The Wine’ing Butcher will offer a full service meat market stocked with top grade meat and fresh, never frozen seafood, along with a selection of fresh produce, a Boar's Head Deli, local breads, and a selection of sophisticated select wines, craft beers, and artisan cheeses. It will also offer an extensive selection of imported specialty items and custom made gift baskets.

“You’ll taste the difference, experience the texture you want and get the tenderness you deserve at the Wine’ing Butcher” saysRobert (B ob) Smith, who is a resident of Gilford and has frequented The Wine’ing Butcher since the beginning, and has now partnered with Andrew and Gretchen.  Also joining the partnership is Bob’s son, Rob Smith, and as a resident of Bedford, Rob is excited to bring a local market to his community.  
Social media is already a “buzz” celebrating the return of the neighborhood market to Pembroke and Bedford. Former employees of The Meat Market have come knocking on the doors not just for employment opportunities, but also rejoicing that they will soon see their old customers again.  Though The Wine’ing Butcher is opening in the same location as The Meat House there is no association
between the two companies.   
To stay on top of all events visit the current locations in Gilford and Meredith or on the web at  www.TheWineingButcher.com   Those interested in employment opportunities can email a resume to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

PSU’s Distinguished Graduate Teaching Award goes to Pamela Clark

PLYMOUTH — "It's absolutely all about the students. To be a part of the journey in helping people get to where they want to go – it doesn't get any better than that." That's the philosophy of Plymouth State University faculty member Pamela Clark, who is this year's recipient of PSU's Distinguished Graduate Teaching Award.

Clark has worked in education in New Hampshire for more than 30 years, first as a teacher and principal and currently as a faculty member in PSU's College of Graduate Studies. A member of the Plymouth State community since 2003, Clark's passion and life work is facilitating individual and organizational growth and transformation. PSU Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Julie Bernier, believes Dr. Clark's experiences as a teacher and principal bring a richness to the classroom.

"Our graduate students benefit from her expertise in leadership development and change management," Bernier said. She is highly effective in the classroom, and I'm pleased to see her recognized in this way."

Students and colleagues alike speak highly of Clark's skill in the classroom, where she uses a variety of innovative teaching methods, and constantly looks for creative ways to engage her students. Clark credits her mentor, the late Dennise Maslakowski, PSU's former Associate Vice President for the College of Graduate Studies, with guiding her career path.

"Dennise saw in me something that I didn't even know I had and encouraged me to begin teaching here; it was her energy, her passion and belief that I could do it," Clark said.

Clark teaches graduate and doctorate level courses in leadership development, group dynamics, adult development, and change process. During her tenure in the classroom, she believes education has taken an ever-widening perspective.

"I hope that my students would say that I really helped them to find themselves; that I helped them to develop the courage to step into who they truly are and helped them to move forward with their dreams and to make their contributions to the world," said Clark. Emphasizing the globalization aspect, Clark continues stating, "We're pulling in students from around the world, and our students are traveling around the world, striving to have an impact in places beyond our country. That's a really exciting and significant change. We're waking up to how interwoven the world is, and I don't think anything but good can come from the growing understanding, the relationships we're developing, and our ability to work together and across the whole globe."

Clark also expressed thanks to those who nominated her for the Teaching Award. "I hope it's because of the passion and love for the work that I do, and I hope it's because I've made a significant contribution to the University and even more so to our students," Clark said. "One of the things I truly love about Plymouth is the incredible quality of people this campus draws -- outstanding, stunning people full of heart and energy."
