NEW HAMPTON — The New Hampton Garden Club will meet at 9:30 a.m. on September 3 at the Gordon-Nash Library for a program presented by Michelle Nichols from Dockside Florist in Meredith who will conduct a workshop entitled, "Let's Get Real with Silks."
The club's Old Home Day sale raised over $800 for the club. Thanks to the hard work and generous contributions from members and local businesses the sale of plants, baked goods, nearly new items and of course the most popular items, the raffle baskets, was a great success.
The club is very grateful to the businesses that donated gift certificates or items for the raffle baskets: Guy Giunta and the N H Lilac Commission, Renaissance Florals, Petal Pushers, Winnisquam Agway, Parkhurst, The Common Man, Hart's Turkey Farm Restaurant, Gilly's, Gina's Place, Hermit Woods Winery, Squam Lakes Science Center, Funspot, Plum Crazy Pizza, the Homestead Restaurant, The Mill Fudge Factory, Annalee Dolls and Twin Designs of Bristol.
Proceeds from the sale will help to support the many on-going club projects such as the Youth Garden Club at the New Hampton Community School, the Garden Therapy program at Golden Crest in Franklin, as well as the eight garden sites in town that the club has established and continues to maintain.
The NHGC meets at 9:30 a.m. the first Tuesday of the month at the Gordon-Nash Library in New Hampton.

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education is offering Beginning and Intermediate free ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) Classes starting on Tuesday, September 10 and Thursday, September 12. These classes meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in Rooms # 216 and # 217 at Laconia High School.
The ESOL classes will enable new learners of the English language to speak, read, and write English. It is most important for foreigners making their home in the Lakes Region to be able to communicate in emergencies and in everyday living situations such as shopping, making doctor appointments, filling out job applications, talking with their child's school and teachers, and everyday expressions of common courtesy.

The inspirational message and music of Pastor Jennifer Worden Flagg and her husband, Bill Flagg, will conclude the 2013 summer season of the Union Church of Meredith Neck on August 25 at the 10 a.m. service. Pastor Flagg, who is also a current trustee, has a rich history with the church going back to the 1950's. Her grandfather was one of several who helped rebuild the present day structure, her father was a long time trustee, and her mother engaged the ministers for many summers. Bill Flagg, a songwriter, singer, and Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame member, enjoys playing guitar, singing gospel and bluegrass music, and incorporates his music with his wife's message during the service. Both are long time favorites at the church and an uplifting culmination of the summer. (Courtesy photo)
