Brownie Troop Donates 30 Books to Gilford Children's Library

GILFORD — On Saturday, June 7 the Gilford Public Library was presented with 30 new books by Girl Scout Brownie Troop #12481.

Led by Scout Leaders Dina Albert and Michelle Rizzatano, the troop decided to use the money they earned selling 1,200 boxes of cookies this year to donate books to the Library's Children's Room collection. The troop decided to donate to the Library after lot of discussion about where the money should go, and where the most number of people could enjoy and benefit from a donation.

"I like to read books!" said Alison Liakas. The girls picked series they liked and researched new books online. Rylee Rizzatano said she picked books that she thought her younger sister might like some day. Lydia Stephan and Elizabeth Albert said that their favorite part of being a Girl Scout was that "we get to have fun" and "you get to help people".

After a trip to the Library, the Brownies were going Geo Caching and then having a Pizza Party. All of the girls have re-signed and will be Brownies together next year. All of the donated books have now been added to the Library collection and are on display in the Children's room.

Country Carriage Celebrates 30 Years at Mill Falls Marketplace

MEREDITH —  A well-known shop at Mill Falls, The Country Carriage opened its doors in the original mill building in June of 1984 as one of their first tenants. Initially located on the second floor in a much smaller space, the store now occupies the entire third floor of the mill. The old beams and creaky floors, as well as the store's vintage display fixtures, make the perfect backdrop for the wide variety of country gifts and decorative accessories offered.

On Saturday, June 28, The Country Carriage will celebrate 30 years at Mill Falls Marketplace in Meredith. From noon to 4 p.m., the store will serve refreshments and have drawings (every 30 minutes) for products from its favorite vendors.

The Country Carriage is the only original shop, with original owner, remaining in the Marketplace. Many other wonderful shops have come and gone during the past 30 years. Retail buildings have been added, as well as the four signature Inns that comprise Mill Falls at the Lake. The Inn at Mill Falls opened in 1985, followed by the Chase House, the Inn at Bay Point, and Church Landing.
