082313EatLocalMonth (290): 3X Local Eatery

LACONIA — Each year the month of August is designated as Eat Local Month, which encourages members of the community to celebrate New Hampshire farmers and food producers. The month was chosen because harvest is reaching its peak, and there are fresh tasting healthy foods available all around the area. 

A great place to start is Local Eatery in Laconia. Chef Kevin Halligan, owner of the Laconia Village Bakery, invites the community to the Lakes Region's new dinner venue, the Local Eatery, situated in the historic Laconia train station on Veterans Square. Halligan goal was to provide top quality meals made from local, organic produce and grass-fed, naturally raised meats and poultry. He began offering a daily "local" special lunch at the bakery, which proved to be the most popular menu item. The Local Eatery features a year-round menu using as much local food as Halligan can find.

Halligan is also happy to exploit Gilford – Bean's and Greens as one of his top partnering local farms. Farmers love to talk about what they do and what they grow and they truly appreciate folks who enjoy their products. In these times when massively subsidized industrial farms use chemicals, hormones and pesticides and raise animals in inhumane factories, it is comforting to know the farmer who grows your food and to know that it is safely and humanely raised. Beans and Greens is a nearby source providing fresh, healthy and local food and fun.

Reservations are recommended for the Local Eatery, but not required. Check out the Local Eatery's Facebook page  for local specials, local events, and a local menu.

083113 Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering 7-week Bereavement Support Groups (149)

LACONIA — Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering free 7-week Bereavement Support Groups in two locations beginning in mid – late September.

One group will meet in Laconia on Wednesdays and the other group will meet in Wolfeboro on Thursdays, specific times to be determined. Each group consists of a series of 1 ½ hour meetings held each week for 7 weeks.

Support Groups give people the opportunity to discuss and learn ways of coping with their loss, to gain the support of others in safe and caring ways, and to learn about the grief process. Although grief is a unique experience through which each person finds his or her own way, there are common threads we all share when going through grief.

Pre-registration is required. To register for the group or for more information, call or email James Miller, Hospice Bereavement Coordinator to schedule an appointment. Phone: 603-524-8444 x 2390 / 603-569-2729 x 256 email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
