SANBORNTON — The Sanbornton Public Library in conjunction with the Sanbornton Recreation Department hosted its Winterfest event on February 26. The activities were organized as an option for local children during February School Vacation Week.
Participants involved in the event had the opportunity to tackle a snowshoe obstacle course, with snowshoes provided by Sanbornton Central School. After completing the course many enjoyed fresh s’mores grilled outside.
For those who preferred to not brave the cold, the library featured a number of indoor options. A game room boasted a variety of puzzles, games and chess sets. Upstairs the Sanbornton Recreation Department also led a “create your own bookmark” craft. In the library café area, anyone could stop by a snack table that featured a variety of cookies, hot cocoa and apples for a healthy option.

LACONIA — The family of the late Jennifer Cotton Grad, BSN, MS, is accepting applications for the eighth annual Jennifer Cotton Grad Memorial Nursing Scholarship.
From 1987 to 2000 Grad performed many roles and was connected to several departments at LRGHealthcare, including floor nursing, Intensive Care, the Community Wellness Center, and Clinical Education Services. Whether it was direct patient care or teaching, her enthusiasm was evident and countless people benefited from her commitment. She was known for always having a positive attitude and outlook. Grad loved life and had great relationships with her co-workers at LRGHealthcare. Nursing and education were her passions.
Members of Grad's family have established two $500 scholarships for 2014, and they are searching for individuals who have the qualities and attributes that Grad possessed. Special consideration will be given to students who demonstrate financial need, and to graduates of Inter-Lakes High School who have been accepted into a nursing program or to LRGHealthcare nurses who are planning to continue their education.
