Line dancing class for beginners set for Saturday at Taylor Commmunity

LACONIA — Bonnie Deutch will hold a beginner's line dancing class on Saturday, May 17, at 2:30 p.m. at Taylor Community's Woodside Building.

Deutch has been dancing for several years and brings an enthusiastic approach to showing people just how fun and easy line dancing can be, as well as being great exercise! This activity is great for singles because a partner isn't necessary — so anyone can join in.

Line dancing isn't only country, but waltzes, Irish and old time music as well.

This event is free and open to the public. To RSVP, please call 524-5600, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Christian Science lecturer to speak in Laconia on Sunday

LACONIA — The Laconia Christian Science Church presents a talk entitled "The Healing Comforter" on Sunday, May 18, at 2 p.m. at the church located at 136 Pleasant St. The speaker will be Mary Alice Rose of Brookville, Md.

In her 20-year career in areas of applied physical science ranging from a meteorologist for the National Severe Storms Laboratory to co-managing a division of engineers and scientists in developing the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope, "prayer was her constant guiding and motivating force. Through those years, her love for God permeated every aspect of her daily work."

Rose's lecture focuses on Christian Science as the comforter Jesus promised. It addresses praying about extreme events such as terrorism, illness and "natural disasters." In her talk, Rose will draw parallels between how physical scientists approach the subjects they study and how individuals approach the study of Christian Science.
