Pitmans Hosting Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks Saturday


LACONIA — It will be Dance Night with Mr Nick and the Dirty Tricks on Saturday, April 26 at 8 p.m. Admission is $12.

The band unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), "Lonely" Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of the region's most formidable live outfits in any genre. But their hearts belong to Blues. They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics like Little Walter's "Mellow Down Easy," Howlin' Wolf's "300 Pounds of Joy" and Wynonie Harris' "Good Morning Judge." Their bag of originals is a mix of rhumbas, jump blues, and boogies they're developing for a debut album and currently taking to legions of fans in New England on their way to stages throughout the US and abroad.
Catered dinner available before the show. Call for information and reservations. www.pitmansfreightroom.com

Donations sought for auction to benefit Lakes Region Food Pantry

MOULTONBOROUGH — Donated items are needed for the silent and live auctions scheduled for Saturday, May 31, to benefit the Lakes Region Food Pantry. Every dollar taken in will be used to support the food pantry and purchase food items to keep the food pantry shelves, refrigerators and freezers stocked.

Local residents and businesses can support this effort by donating items to be auctioned, such as gift certificates, new merchandise, handmade crafts or art work, used furniture or household items in very good condition, antiques, and any other items that are valuable enough to be included in a silent or live auction.

There will not be a flea market associated with the auctions. In addition, we cannot accept used mattresses, appliances (small or large), computer or stereo equipment, exercise equipment, televisions, or television entertainment centers. A good rule of thumb when donating to a charity auction is to ask, "Is this something I would give to a friend? If not, please don't donate it to charity."

Businesses and individuals are also encouraged to be creative by donating services (e.g. cleaning time, landscaping hours, baked goods), dinner for 2 or 4 at their home, boat rides or motorcycle rides, or any other type of exciting recreational items.

The live auction at the Moultonborough Lions Club will begin at 6 p.m. sharp. The doors will be opened at 4:30 p.m. for preview and food will be available. More than 250 items will be auctioned in the balloon, silent and live auctions.

Businesses or individuals who have one or more items they are willing to donate to this very worthwhile cause are asked to call Kate and Mike Lancor (476-8409) or (204-8409). Arrangements can be made to pick up donated items in advance.

The Lakes Region Food Pantry (LRFP) opened its doors in January 2013 and is located on Whittier Highway in Moultonborough. LRFP serves individuals and families from throughout the Lakes Region including Moultonborough, Center Harbor, Meredith, Sandwich, Tuftonboro and Laconia.

This year's annual Food Pantries Auction is the ninth auction being conducted by HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) Auctions. HOPE Auctions was formed for the sole purpose of raising funds for charity organizations. Everyone associated with HOPE Auctions volunteers their time and efforts and every item to be auctioned must be donated.

Little Twig Libraries Are Stocked For Summer

MOULTONBOROUGH — It may barely be spring yet according to the weather forecast, but the little "twig" free book swap boxes located at the Moultonborough Playground and the Long Island Town Beach have been stocked for the summer season. (We call them our "twig" libraries because they are too small to be a branch library.)

For the convenience of those who are spending time at the beach or playground, or just passing by, a supply of free donated books has been placed for reading pleasure, including paperbacks and hardcovers, for the use of adults or children. Those who use the books are welcome to take them home to read, and they are also invited to bring donations of books to re-stock the boxes.

Please don't leave excess donations outside the boxes where they would be damaged by the weather, as the boxes are not checked daily, although they will be refilled as needed. The playground box is attached to the side of the red recreation office building near the gate, and the one at the beach is attached to the lifeguard shack near the parking area. The "twigs" were put in place last summer and were very popular with beach-going readers.
