Joining KTHO for the first time are the well-known Coyote Grill in Waterville Valley and Remington's, open since last summer and already a landmark on the Plymouth - Rumney line on Route 25.
This memorable evening will take place at Plymouth State University's Prospect Hall for the first time this year, and the KTHO Decorating Committee is already hard at work planning the décor to set the mood.

The January 15 event opens with for tasty appetizers at the 5 p.m. "Social Hour," followed by a Silent Auction with many high-quality contributed items and services, as well as the popular "Energy Room" featuring displays, discussions, and information about alternative energy.
