Live music and dancing in the street at the Gazebo will begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 10 p.m. Half of all proceeds will be donated to the Center Harbor Fire Department towards their 100th anniversary, and the balance used to sponsor additional public events, such as Center Harbor's annual SkateFest in February. According to Bill Ricciardi, Chair of the event, "We've put this together to be an affordable, old fashioned, fun filled evening for the entire family. Friends, family, residents, and visitors are all welcome." He added, "All proceeds above our costs will go right back into similar community events and of course, to our hard-working Fire Department."
Tickets are $15 for the grilled chicken dinner and $20 for the Lobster dinner and are available at most businesses in Center Harbor. Tickets are also available at Town Hall, and a limited number of tickets will be available the night of the event.

MOULTONBOROUGH — An expert on gravel road maintenance will give workshop on Saturday, July 11, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Balmoral Improvement Association's Club House on Paradise Drive.
Russ Lanoie will talk about gravel road maintenance techniques that can improve performance and durability of gravel roads, reduce long-term maintenance costs, and most importantly, protect water quality by reducing stormwater runoff to nearby lakes and streams.
Organized by the Lake Winnipesaukee Association, Town of Moultonborough Public Works Department and Conservation Commission, the morning workshop will provide individuals and road associations with information on proper road construction techniques and the basic principles behind maintaining gravel/dirt roads that will provide excellent year-round service and present minimal pollution problems. The morning workshop will be followed by a site visit to assess a nearby road.
The workshop is based on Lanoie's gravel road maintenance manual, "A Ditch in Time," which will be available for purchase at the workshop. A sample of the manual is available on his website: www.ruralhometech.com. It is targeted at camp operators, road associations, private land owners who maintain long unpaved driveways, and more generally, to those who contract for dirt road maintenance.
The morning workshop will be followed by a site visit to assess a nearby road.
