GILFORD — A VIP parking spot, Red Sox and Bruins tickets, golf foursomes, airtime on Binnie Media, restaurant certificates, gift baskets, and much, much, much more will be available at the annual Gunstock Ski Club Dinner Auction on Saturday, October 19 at the Gilford Youth Center in Gilford Village.
Sponsored by Bank of NH this year, the event will feature an elegant meal provided by Fratello's and entertainment by Phil 'n the Blanks. Jim St. Jean of JSJ Auctioneers will be in charge of the Live Auction. Auction items, large and small, have been donated by community partners as well as ski club members, and a wide array of items are up for grabs. Other valued sponsors include TripAdvisor, Belknap Landscape Company, Cantin Chevrolet, Melcher & Prescott Insurance, AutoServ Tilton, John Beinoras DDS, Patrick's Pub, LRGHealthcare, Meredith Village Savings Bank, NE Duplicator, Beacon Equity Partners, Belmont Self Storage, Advanced Orthopedic Specialists, and Amoskeag Beverages.
All proceeds from the auction will go to the GSC Clubhouse Repair and Renovation Fund. The GSC clubhouse was built in the 1980's with donations of building materials and work done by ski club members. This facility is unique in New Hampshire but is sorely in need of repairs to keep it safe and operational. The ski club operates it but is independent from the Gunstock Mountain Resort and so must constantly raise money to operate its programs.
The ski club runs alpine ski racing and training programs during the ski season on weekends and school vacations for youth aged 7 to 18. Racing is sanctioned by the NH Alpine Racing Association and the US Ski Association and many races attract racers from all over NH as well as New England and the Eastern Seaboard. Established in 1918, the Gunstock Ski Club is the oldest ski club in New Hampshire. The Gunstock Ski Club is a 501(c)3 non profit corporation and all donations are tax deductible.

MEREDITH — The last installment of Moulton Farm's Good Gardening Workshop series will feature Ask the Farmer on Saturday, October 19 at 10:30 a.m.
"Although many people think the gardening season is over, this is the perfect time for the workshop," explains John Moulton, owner of the farm. "We're still growing things and will be harvesting for a few more months, but we're also doing things to prepare for next year's garden season. Home gardeners should also be doing a number of things to help prevent problems in next year's garden and encourage good harvests. Plus, it's a great time to ask questions about things that happened in your garden this year, while they are fresh in your memory."
Moulton Farm is located at 18 Quarry Road off Route 25 in Meredith. The farm practices sustainable agriculture and is dedicated to providing the highest quality products while preserving its rich soil for future generations. More information is available at moultonfarm.com.
