HOLDERNESS — Police chiefs from the towns of Holderness and Ashland will be presenting a program on the hot topic of "being scammed." The public is invited to attend on Wednesday morning, March 12 at 11:30 at the Holderness Fire Department. Also available to answer questions on the related topic "Fraud and You," will be a representative from Meredith Village Savings Bank. Immediately following the program,
the Holderness Park and Rec Department will provide popcorn and a movie, which is open to all who would like to attend.
Both chiefs brought it to the attention of the newly formed group, Concerned Christian Community (CCC) that its senior citizens, especially, are in need of this program that is being presented..
The CCC is made up of representatives from several local churches. Members from St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Holderness Community Church, Ashland Baptist Church, Ashland Methodist Church, and St. Agnes Church, are collectively working together toward the common goal of presenting topics that have been determined will strengthen their townspeople.
The CCC was started by St Mark's Church earlier this winter. Their mission is to reach out and explore the needs of their communities, and work with other churches to meet those needs. It was determined that the focus should be on senior citizens, young parents, and the already established "Got Lunch" and "Community Pantry" programs.
The next CCC meeting will be held in Sherrill Hall, St. Mark's Church on Thursday, March 13 at noon. All who are interested in making this group a success, are encouraged to bring a bag lunch, and some fresh ideas. Drinks will be provided.
For further information regarding CCC, contact Deb Holland at 603-968-2303.

PLYMOUTH — Mezzo-soprano Emily Jaworski, with Professor Dan Perkins on piano, will present The Deepest Desire at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 9, in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center for the Arts. There is no charge for admission.
Hailed by Classical Voice of New England as "thoroughly delightful and a consummate storyteller, musician and artist," Emily Jaworski is earning a reputation for excellence and constantly surprising audiences with her versatility. From Bach oratorios to the art songs of Brahms and Copland, to jazz and musical theatre, Jaworski is committed to forging a deep emotional connection with every piece she sings.
The Deepest Desire is a recital program featuring forgotten works of Wolf, Debussy and Barber, as well as Jake Heggie's song cycle "The Deepest Desire: Four Meditations on Love," based on texts by social activist Sister Helen Prejean.
Perkins says the texts are Prejean's response to Heggie's question about her own sense of spirituality and its meaning. They describe the process of examining the "deepest waters of her being to find the core of her spirituality: the deepest desire of her heart."
Perkins is professor of music and director of choral activities at Plymouth State University where he was awarded the first Stevens-Bristow Distinguished Professorship. He is founder and music director of the New Hampshire Master Chorale, music director of the Manchester Choral Society, and was principal guest conductor of the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet. He will return to Vietnam in November 2014 as conductor of the Asia Pacific Activities Conference (APAC) Orchestra.
Guest artist Donna Shin will perform the flute part for the Heggie song cycle.

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education will be offering an SAT (College Board) Preparation Class beginning on Wednesday, March 12 for seven weeks. The SAT Preparation Classes are scheduled to end on Wednesday, April 30 in time for the SAT Exam that is scheduled to be given on Saturday, May 3.
The SAT Preparation Classes are designed to help students score better on the mathematics, reading comprehension and written essay sections of the SAT Exam. The SAT Exam will test subject areas that students have learned throughout four years of high school. Emphasis will be placed on three segments: reading, writing and arithmetic. A perfect score on the SAT Exam is 2400.
The writing section will be divided between multiple choice questions on grammar and style and an essay students must write on an assigned topic. In the past, the SAT Exam had been strictly multiple choices. The SAT Exam now is becoming a test of critical reading, comprehensive writing and higher mathematics in addition to a test of learned skills that you use to reason. Students will improve problem solving skills involving basic math, Algebra, Algebra II and Geometry. Emphasis will also be placed on helping the student score better on the written essay portion of the exam. The SAT Preparation classes will also better prepare the students for the different types of questions asked, when to guess at a question, and how to pace oneself so as to not run out of time. Test taking tips will also be given. The skills required by the new SAT are those same skills needed by all high school students today.
The SAT Preparation Classes are scheduled to end on Wednesday, April 30. The SAT Exam is scheduled to be given on Saturday, May 3. The Preparation Classes enable the student to become more familiar with the types of questions asked and how to successfully take a standardized exam and improve their SAT scores.
For more information or to enroll in the SAT Preparation Class, the student should contact Peggy Selig, Director, Laconia Adult Education at 524-5712.
