MEREDITH — Join the League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery on Friday, June 13 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. for a Shaker Broom Making demonstration with League of New Hampshire Craftsmen artist, Everett Bailey.

During this demonstration Everett will show how he hand crafts his Shaker brooms from sorting the corn to sewing the broom. During the week Everett volunteers at Shaker Village in Canterbury and makes the brooms that are sold in the Shaker Village Store.

Everett loves his craft so much that he tries to make his brooms as authentic to the Shaker style as possible. Throughout the years he has tracked down machinery, tacks, broom corn, wire, and string, all to make his brooms authentic to the style. Also, almost everything he uses is local to New England with very few exceptions.For more infrmation call the Gallery at 603.279.7920 or visit us at 279 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith.

Moulton Farm Offering Series of Breakfast and Dinner Events

MEREDITH — Usually people experience "farm to table" dining while at a restaurant. This summer at Moulton Farm that experience will actually be at the farm. The Meredith farm has just announced a series of breakfasts and dinners that will feature produce grown at the farm as well as the work of the talented team in the farm's kitchen and bakery.

'These breakfasts and dinners will include great food," says John Moulton, owner of the Meredith farm that has been farmed since the 1890's. "Some of them also will include the chance venture into the fields where the food was growing earlier in the day. It's a true field to table experience."

Moulton Farm will offer breakfast buffets on several Sundays during the summer. Each breakfast buffet will feature dishes that include seasonal fruit as well as baked goods prepared by the bakery at the farm. "We're very fortunate to have a talented baker who trained at Johnson & Wales University," says Moulton. "Trish's baked goods are wonderful and eating them in a beautiful farm setting makes them even better." The breakfast buffets will be held on June 15, June 29, July 27, August 24 and September 14.

Dinners at the farm will range from informal country style dining to the farm's more elegant "Taste of the Farm Dinner". For the past few years the farm's annual multiple course dinner has received raved reviews and sold out. This year the event will occur on July 15 with tickets going on sale in late June. "It's quite an undertaking and happens only once a year because of that," explains Moulton.

New this year at the farm are dinner buffets which will feature dishes created by the farm's talented chef, Jonathan Diola. "These dinners are more informal than our 'Taste of the Farm Dinner'. The menus won't be announced until about a week or so before the dinner. This is because food we are currently harvesting will be the focus. Nature can be fickle," says Moulton with a smile. "In addition to the wonderful food, those attending will have the opportunity to interact with the people who grew the food and visit the fields where the food was grown." The dinner buffets will be on June 17, July 22, and August 16.
More information about the events is available at moultonfarm.com and at the farm's market which is open seven days a week.

Moulton Farm is located at 18 Quarry Road off Route 25 in Meredith. The farm practices sustainable agriculture and is dedicated to providing the highest quality fruits and vegetables while preserving its rich soil for future generations. In addition to growing its own produce, the farm offers plants, garden supplies, baked goods and a quality selection of seafood, meats, dairy products and other items from northern New England producers.

Meredith Legion Post hosting meat bingo event to help ‘Send an old marine back to Iwo Jima’

MEREDITH — The American Legion Post 33 in Meredith is hosting a Meat Bingo event on Saturday June 14, at 3 p.m. at the Post at 6 Plymouth Street in Meredith. The event is sponsored by the American Legion.
The purpose for this benefit is to send Jack back to Iwo Jima. Jack is a 90 year old Marine veteran who made five amphibious landings on the Japanese held Pacific islands during WWII. Jack came through it all alive against great odds. He put the war behind him, married, built a home, raised a family, but he always wanted to go back and pay tribute to the many brothers in arms he left in the Far East.

Jack cannot afford the trip himself, being on a pension with his wife in in constant care facility. The trip is planned for August 2015 and since Jack is in fine health he should have no trouble making it. Lee Marvin's widow will be on the same trip. We need to raise approximately $8,000 more of the $10,000 total for the trip. You can also go to www.gofundme.com and search for "Send an old marine back to Iwo Jima".
