NH Charitable Foundation Supports Belknap Mill's Summer Concert Series

LACONIA — With funding from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and other local partners, the Belknap Mill is well on its way to planning the largest summer concert series ever in Rotary Park.
The Mill will produce two concert series to run from June 4 through the end of August. The first series will continue the Music in the Park concerts on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., featuring local artists and five NH Arts Roster artists recommended by the NH State Council on the Arts. The Mill has scheduled 12 groups, ranging from Franco-American artist Lucie Therrien to the Crunchy Western Boys, from children's funny man Michael Zerphy to World Music artist Randy Armstrong.
Then, on Fridays from noon to 1:30 p.m., local workers can come to Rotary Park and enjoy energetic music, healthy lunches, a bit of Zumba, and raffle prizes to get them through the work day. The Belknap Mill will play host to a variety of upbeat musicians to get everyone moving. Order ahead and have a healthy lunch waiting for you at the park. (To pre-order, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .) Spend time in the sun enjoying music and lunch while you plan your weekend get-away. Don't worry about messy weather: The concerts will not be cancelled. During inclement weather, the concerts will move to the Belknap Mill's third floor where there will be comfortable seats, healthy lunches, and a brand new Friday experience.

Alaskan Wilderness Hiking Program, February 6 from 6:30–7:30 p.m.

GILFORD — The Gilford Public Library will host a special presentation by wilderness hiker Kristin Gates on Thursday, February 6 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

This past summer, at only 26 years old, Gates became the first woman to traverse Alaska's Arctic Brooks Range solo. Kristin's trip took her 1,000 miles across this isolated mountain range. Since there are no roads, let alone hiking trails, north of the Yukon River, she bushwacked and packrafted the entire distance.

Kristin will share stories and pictures of her wild river crossings and daily grizzly bear sightings, and what it was like to travel through one of the last pieces of true wilderness in North America. Kristin will also talk about her next expedition, following the route of the old gold miners up in Alaska. She estimates that this trip should take 2.5 months and will cover over 3,000 miles. This presentation is free and open to the public.
