Students at Inter-Lakes take advantage of the Greater Meredith's Career Partnership Program


MEREDITH — Three seniors at Inter-Lakes High School are starting their year off on the right foot, making sure that they know just exactly what they want to do when they graduate.

Anna Brown is interning at Booty Family Farm, a second generation family-owned certified organic farm in Center Sandwich, which is dedicated to producing the highest quality vegetables and maple syrup.

John Findlay is interning with both Kathleen Hill in the Inter-Lakes Middle Tier Drama Club and Emily Eynon, Inter-Lakes band and music. Findlay helps the drama club with play try-outs, acting and set-up. He also helps the music department with underclassmen who need extra help and often helps to teach the classes.

Lydia Swedberg is focused on Interior Design and perhaps Industrial Design in college. She is interning at Interiors by Randi in Moultonborough. Interiors by Randi is a private, full-service "mini design center" that services clients in the Lakes Region and has expanded throughout Massachusetts.

Each intern is gaining new knowledge of the industry that they chose. They are determining, from hands-on experience, if this is the correct career choice for them.

"I have to say that in visiting the business sites when the students are there and talking one-on-one with the students and supervisors, all three seniors have chosen internships that compliment their interests. What a great program we have to allow these students the opportunity to have this experience before they graduate", says Career Partnership Program Director, Rhonda Hanaway.

The Greater Meredith's Career Partnership Program is a resource in the guidance department and offers one day job shadows; internships; a guest speakers' bureau; volunteer and community service opportunities; and a one-day job fai.

Last year 30 students completed internships in various industries and 50 students took advantage of one-day job shadowing opportunities. The Greater Meredith Program (GMP), an award winning Main Street Program, is a community development organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors, seeking to enhance economic vitality, historical and cultural heritage, and town-wide beautification.

Castle in the Clouds to mark rebuilding of front portico Friday

MOULTONBOROUGH — As the Castle in the Clouds heads into its centennial year in 2014, a year of celebration and dedication, it is happily celebrating a great season in 2013.

With record attendance, weddings all season long, and important improvements to the buildings and additions to the staff this has been a busy and productive year.

The major restoration project this year, the faithful rebuilding of Lucknow's front portico, will be finished on October 18 and celebrated with a ribbon cutting attended by board members, and representatives from major funders--the Mcinish Foundation, LCHIP, and the Bank of New Hampshire.

With the completion of this work the Castle Preservation Society will have invested more than $2,000,000 into the Castle property in restoration, rebuilding and renovation.

The Castle Preservation Society also recently welcomed two new senior managers to the Castle family. Charles "Chuck" Clark is filling a newly created, and much needed position of Director of Operations. Chuck comes from COSI, the nationally recognized science center in Columbus, Ohio, where he was for ten years involved in various aspects of Guest Relations and most recently director of the department. He will oversee three crucial guest centered areas: food service, admissions and weddings, rentals, and programs. James Towle, newly hired as Castle Facility Director, comes from the Holderness School where he has been Assistant Facility Director for the past ten years.

Castle in the Clouds will close for the regular season at the end of the Day, October 27. That is also Moultonborough appreciation day, when Moultonborough residents tour the property and the Lucknow mansion for free

. Even after the regular season, there is lots of activity at the Castle. Murder Mystery Dinner Theater is back again the first weekend in November: the Saturday evening performance is sold out, but there is still good availability on Sunday November 3 at 1 p.m. This year's production, "Treason in the Court" invites guests to revel in a time of merry-making and celebration--but with treason and murder afoot. A buffet meal from Hart's caterers and the show, all for $55, will make for a merry memorable event..

And Christmas at the Castle will also be back, this year November 22-24 and November 29-December 1 with music, vintage decorations, and other seasonal treats.
