'Tasty Tidbits' to Benefit I-L Community Caregivers

MEREDITH — Can sampling cheeses and other delicious foods help your neighbors? It can at the "Tasty Tidbits" event at Moulton Farm on Saturday, October 19 from 3 to 5 p.m. One hundred percent of the proceeds from ticket sales for the event will go to Interlakes Community Caregivers, a local non-profit that provides assistance to residents of Center Harbor, Meredith, Moultonborough, and Sandwich who need help doing the things many of us take for granted.

The sampling event will feature cheeses from New Hampshire and Vermont cheese makers, food prepared by Moulton Farm's chef, Jonathan Diola, bakery treats prepared by the farm's talented baker, Trish Lutkus, and other products, such as sparkling cider, from northern New England producers.

"Neighbors helping neighbors is something we believe in," says John Moulton, owner of the Meredith Farm. "Interlakes Community Caregivers provides a great service for so many people. We're happy to help by providing a fun and tasty event that also raises funds for this important organization."

"We are truly lucky to have Moulton Farm in our community, not only for their great local produce, but for their support of nonprofits such as ours," indicated Ann Sprague, ICCI Executive Director. "I encourage everyone to come to the event, enjoy some great food, and support ICCI's efforts to help our neighbors."

Tickets for the event are $10 and can be purchased either at Moulton Farm or by calling Interlakes Community Caregivers at 603-253-9275, ext. 3.

Masonic Lodges across state holding open houses Saturday

TILTON — The Doric-Centre Lodge in Tilton will be one of 65 Masonic Lodges  holding a special open house on Saturday, Oct 19, to give the people of their communities an unrestricted look at who Masons are and what they do.

The lodge will have displays and tours and will also have a grill going from 12:30 to 3 p.m.

The purpose of the special Open House, involving 65 Masonic Lodges from Portsmouth to Colebrook, is to demonstrate to people how Freemasonry relates to local communities and attempts through its members to promote social well being.

"The people hosting this event are the very people of our own local communities," said Stewart Aronson, Grand Master of New Hampshire's 6,400 Masons. "We live, work and play like everyone else, share the same concerns for our kids, like everyone else and work to make our communities better places to live, just like everyone else.

The times, Aronson added, demand that people have a chance to see for themselves what's "behind our closed doors and to have a sense of the genuine passion we Masons share for the social and spiritual values we embrace."
In keeping with the Grand Master's objectives, doors to local Masonic Lodges will open promptly at 9 a.m. and remain open until 3 p.m. Member Masons from their own communities will be on hand to answer questions and give guided tours to explain the significance of Lodge furniture, ornaments, jewels and working tools used in private Masonic ceremonies. Lodge members will also address how these symbols of the fraternity apply to its charitable work and the community service work of its members.

Franklin hosting Lights On Afterschool event on Wednesday afternoon

FRANKLIN — The 14th annual Lights On Afterschool will be the largest nationwide rally for afterschool ever held, and will take place on Wednesday, October 23, from 4-6 p.m. at the Bessie Rowell Community Center, located at 12 Rowell Drive in Franklin.

"We are delighted to join these rallies, which are sending a powerful message about the urgent need for more afterschool programs," said Krystal Alpers. "Afterschool programs do so much for our children, our families and our communities. They help keep kids physically fit, offer mentoring from local community leaders and help improve student attendance and work habits during the regular school day. With Lights On Afterschool, Americans are saying they want the lights on after school for our kids."

Afterschool Alliance Executive Director Jodi Grant welcomed the City of Franklin's Parks and Recreation Department's support. "We're grateful for all our Lights On Afterschool partners, and for the work they do on behalf of afterschool programs and the kids who attend them, Their support makes the message of Lights On Afterschool all the more compelling. We share their conviction that afterschool programs are essential because they inspire children to learn, keep them safe, and help working families."

Funding for afterschool programs has not kept up with demand, and more than 15 million children are alone and unsupervised after the school days ends. Lights On Afterschool was launched in October 2000 with celebrations in more than 1,200 communities nationwide. The event grew in 2001 to more than 3,600 events, and more than 7,500 in 2008.
