Audubon Society Program on its First 100 Years


MOULTONBOROUGH — On Thursday, November 21 at 7 p.m. at the Loon Center in Moultonborough, the Lakes Region Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society will present a program about "New Hampshire Audubon — The First 100 Years — The Musical.''

Join popular speaker Bob Quinn for an entertaining evening to celebrate the amazing story of the return of native wildlife from the brink of disaster, and the remarkably courageous people who did it. Quinn will introduce NH Audubon's first Superstar, Manley Townsend, who will share his vision of this compelling story which covers the wanton slaughter of all wildlife, the ugliest hats you have ever seen, plus the turbulent early years in the fight to protect native animals. A sneak preview of this fun production was recently presented at the NH Audubon Annual Meeting and the critics and critters were unanimous in agreeing that the show is a surefire hit.

Come see how our 2013 world is more like 1913 than you could ever imagine. They even had political idiocy back then. Quinn will blend humor with hard-hitting contemporary issues from now versus 100 years ago, and you will be amazed at the similarities, not to mention the similes.

The Loon Center is located on Lee's Mill Road; follow the signs on Blake Road from Route 25 near the Moultonborough Central School, or from Route 109 turn on to Lee Road and turn past The Woodshed on Lee's Mill Road. Refreshments will be served.
