Loon Center Lewis and Clark presentation held Feb 20

MOULTONBOROUGH — On Thursday, February 20 the Lakes Region Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society will present a program about "The Lewis and Clark Trail – 200 Years of Changes" at 7 p.m. at the Loon Center.

Most people know the basics of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and most birders know that Lewis's Woodpecker and Clark's Nutcracker are named after the explorers. This program combines history and birding all in one place.

N.H. Audubon Senior Biologist Dr. Pam Hunt has traveled the Lewis and Clark Trail twice, and this presentation stems from her most recent effort in the spring of 2013. See the places that the Corps of Discovery saw in 1804-06 and hear how the landscape and wildlife along their route have changed over the last 200 years.

The Loon Center is located on Lee's Mill Road; follow the signs on Blake Road from Route 25 near the Moultonborough Central School, or from Rte. 109 turn on to Lee Road and turn left on Lee's Mill Road. Refreshments will be served.

Folklorist Rebecca Rule wows MWC


MOULTONBOROUGH — With sixty four in attendance on Monday, February 3, the Moultonborough Women's Club rang with peals of laughter during the performance of Becky Rule, a well known humorist and folklorist. Becky, with an effervescent sense of humor, shared quite a few New England stories and had enthusiastic audience participation. Believing these New Hampshire stories should be preserved and shared, she began collecting them 20 years ago and has over 100 performances each year. A recent highlight in her remarkable achievements was when she was awarded an honorary doctorate from New England College for storytelling and her contributions to New Hampshire. Her performance exceeded expectations and was given a standing ovation. This engagement was made possible by Harriet Bicksler applying and obtaining a NH Humanities Council grant and the public was invited to attend free of charge.

Candidate Mike Cryans speakes at the Plymouth Area Democrats on March 11

PLYMOUTH — To assist our members and all interested voters in deciding how to cast their votes in the March 11, 2014, election, the Plymouth Area Democrats are pleased to announce that District 1 Democratic Executive Council Candidate Mike Cryans will be the featured speaker at the regular monthly meeting of the Plymouth Area Democrats on Wednesday, February 19 at the Plymouth Regional Senior Center on Depot Road in Plymouth. Cryans' presentation will begin at 7 p.m. and there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience at its conclusion.

For 18 years as a Grafton County Commissioner, Cyrans has served the people of Grafton County. His focus has been growing the economy, protecting taxpayers, and strengthening the Middle Class. These same priorities he will take with him to the Executive Council. Like his good friend and colleague Ray Burton, Cryans understands that public service is about being honest, hardworking, and delivering real solutions for his constituents.

Among the accomplishments of the Grafton County Commission during Cryans' years of service include building a major addition to the Nursing Home, a new House of Correction, Water Tower, Maintenance Building, and Biomass Plant - all projects that invested in the local economy and created jobs. Most recently he helped plan the demolition of the old County jail and construct Ray Burton Park, a wonderful tribute to Ray, in its place.

As a District 1 Executive Council candidate, Cryans has won the joint endorsement of the three siblings of the late Republican Councilor Raymond Burton, each of them highlighting the importance of constituent services that Burton was known for providing.

District 1 is made up of dozens of diverse communities, towns, villages, unincorporated places, and cities in northern New Hampshire. It includes all the towns that make up the Plymouth Area Democrats organization: Alexandria, Ashland, Bridgewater, Bristol, Campton, Dorchester, Ellsworth, Groton, Hebron, Holderness, Lincoln, Plymouth, Rumney, Thornton, Warren, Waterville Valley, Wentworth, and Woodstock.

The Plymouth Area Democrats welcome the public to attend any of their meetings, which start at 5:30 with a potluck supper, followed by a brief business meeting and featured event. For further information, please call 968-7105.
