LACONIA — Bank of New Hampshire is proud to support New Beginnings of Belknap County by hosting an employee jeans day. By donating $5 to New Beginnings, each donating employee could wear jeans to work on the designated Friday.
A total of $900 was raised by employees and the bank's match. These funds will be used to provide free and confidential services to people whose lives have been affected by domestic and sexual violence and stalking as well to present educational programs to help break the cycle of violence.
New Beginnings provides direct services in Belknap County, including short-term refuge and a supportive place for sexual assault survivors, battered women and their children. In addition, they educate survivors about the choices they have and to educate the community about the history, causes, and methods of confronting violence against women, including physical, emotional and sexual assault, thereby promoting change.

LACONIA — The Jeremy Wallace Trio will perform Saturday, November 23 at 8 p.m. at Pitman's Freight House.
Jeremy Wallace is a blues/rock singer/songwriter from New Jersey. He has performed at various venues on the East Coast, and has opened for artists such as Dave Van Ronk, John Hammond, and Freedy Johnston. Wallace took guitar lessons from Van Ronk, who sang a duet with Wallace on the song "Samson and Delilah" on Wallace's second album, She Used to Call Me Honey.
Jeremy has a gritty, graveled voice that sounds as though he's been gargling with gasoline. A bushel-full of song upon song about love-gone-oh-so-wrong, the romance of hanging out in deadbeat bars, the salvation of whiskey and making lots of bad choices. A minimalistic blues-based sound soaked in days long gone by – all drums with brushes and stand-up bass.
Admission is $12. Pitman's is a BYOB venue. For more information check www.pitmansfreightroom.com
