Don't miss this chance to mix and mingle with Chamber members, partners, and friends as they relax and enjoy refreshments, conversation, and door prizes, and enjoy the best networking in the region.
Partnering with the community that supports their store is vitally important to them. They do that in a variety of ways including direct financial support for many local organizations and events, in-store fundraisers, and associate participation in local activities. They sponsor several local activities like Bristol's Summer Concert Series and Bristol Old Home Day. In addition, they donate food to our local shelter, Bristol Community Services, support our local Fire Departments and many other events and programs.
This business-networking event, conducted by the Plymouth Regional Chamber, is part of their active support of the regional businesses and is possible through the generous support of key area businesses and professionals.

MEREDITH — The First Baptist Church in Meredith will be hosting GriefShare on Tuesday evenings from 7-9 p.m., running through December 16. Participants are encouraged to attend each consecutive week, but each week is independent of the others in content so one can join at anytime along the way.
GriefShare is a Bible-based support group for anyone who is suffering the loss of someone close to them, no matter how recent or long ago the loss is. It's a place where those suffering can come to recieve hope and support along their journey of Grief. Even though the teaching is based out of the Christian Bible, the group recognizes and appreciates that not everyone has that viewpoint.
All are welcome. Each session consists of a video, workbook and group discussion. The videos feature respected ounselors and teachers who have faced their own grief and who share insights on how to walk through grief in a healthy manner.
