N.H. Humane Society hosting rabies clinic Sat.

LACONIA —New Hampshire Humane Society will host the second of two annual Spring Rabies & Microchip Clinic on Saturday, April 26, at the shelter on Meredith Center Road, Laconia.

State law requires all cats and dogs require rabies vaccination and periodic boosters to ensure protection. While this zoonotic disease is generally contained within the wild kingdom by predators, the very real possibility of jumping that natural barrier via the family dog, or cat exists, especially in rural areas where the chances of a domestic animal encountering a wild animal area greater.

The NHHS rabies clinic will be open to anyone with a kitten or puppy older than 12 weeks of age, or adult cat or dog needing the vaccine. Cats must be in a carrier, and dogs on a leash to ensure safety. The cost per animal will be $12 per vaccine.

Micro-chipping service will so be offered at the clinic for a per animal fee of just $25. Vaccines will be given on a first come, first served basis, no appointment necessary, but plan ahead if you intend to bring multiple pets — allow extra time for check-in and certificate information to be gathered.

Moulton Farm Holding Annual Open House May 3

MEREDITH — After months of white, celebrate the colors of spring at Moulton Farm's annual open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 3. "The colors in the greenhouses are always a beautiful sight," says John Moulton, the owner of the farm that's been in operation since the 1890's. "This year they are especially welcome."

Color from the thousands of flowers available at the farm is just one of the experiences to delight the senses at the open house. Taste will be celebrated as well. The farm's chef, Jonathan Diola, will be sampling some of the many dishes available from the farm's popular kitchen as well as items that can be made with the delicious seafood available from Sal's Fresh Seafood. Tricia Lutkus, the farm's head baker, will be offering samples of some of the baked goods available from the farm, as well as showing examples of the custom cakes that she creates for customers. Cider Bellies will be offering samples of their newest variations on their popular cider doughnuts.

The farm is an avid supporter of local businesses and small food producers, so there will also be samples of many different products available at the farm including locally raised meat and dairy products.

For those who delight in the feel of soil between their fingers, there will be plenty happening. Sue Dail, creator of many of the beautiful planters available from the farm, will be offering a free container gardening workshop. Kelly McAdam, from the University of New Hampshire's Cooperative Extension, will answer gardening questions from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition to the samples and free workshops, with the first 100 purchases of the day the farm will give out $5 in "bonus bucks" good towards a purchase during a future visit.
