CONCORD — The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) celebrates National Employ Older Workers Week September 22–28.
The NH State SCSEP is pleased to acknowledge this year's SCSEP host training sites who hired the SCSEP participants trained at their work sites. Their commitment to providing training, support and guidance allowed participants to successfully complete their training and achieve their employment goal.
Second Start-First Start Children's Center, the State of NH–Disability Determination Unit in Concord and The Upper Room, A Family Resource Center in Derry, recognized the SCSEP participants trained at their sites as reliable, qualified and skilled workers which resulted in their employment.
The Senior Community Service Employment Program is a community service and work based training program for older workers. The program provides subsidized, service-based training for eligible NH residents who are age 55 and older who are unemployed.
Participants are paid minimum wage and work 17 hours per week in a wide variety of community service activities at host training sites in non-profit or public facilities. It is intended that community service training serves as a bridge to unsubsidized employment opportunities which is the goal of the program.
Non-profit or public entities interested in providing training to SCSEP participants or want more information on the program, can contact 603-225-3295 or 1-800-856-5525.
SCSEP is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor. The NH State SCSEP is administered by the N.H. Department of Resources & Economic Development – Office of Workforce Opportunity and operated by Community Action Program, Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc.

WOLFEBORO — To celebrate its 5th anniversary in Wolfeboro, Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) will be hosting an Open House and Business After Hours on Wednesday, September 25. All members of the community are invited to attend. Refreshments will be served during business hours. From 5-7 p.m. the bank will be hosting a Business After Hours in conjunction with the Wolfeboro Area Chamber of Commerce.
MVSB's Wolfeboro office, located at 66 North Main Street, was designed by Tom Samyn of Samyn-D'Elia Architects and officially opened for business on September 26, 2008.
Built with extensive use of woods and warm tones, the building catches the eye while fitting in with its North Main Street neighbors and was an aesthetic improvement for a location formerly occupied by an abandoned gas station. The interior is warm and inviting and its decorations are representative of Wolfeboro and its surrounding lakefront area.
Located in such close proximity to Lake Winnipesaukee, environmental impact was a top priority in building design. Super insulation and a ground source heat pump are used to control the temperature throughout the branch. In the winter, heat is provided through radiant heat tubing embedded in the floors, including the sidewalk outside both entrances to reduce ice and snow build up. The parking lot's pervious pavement was also installed with the local environment in mind. By capturing storm water and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater and reducing potentially damaging storm water runoff.

No dog is too young, too small nortoo old to enter the Beginner Dog Obedience Class. Your dog will learn to walk beside you on the leash without pulling, come when called, sit, lie down, stand, and stay where you command it to stay. Owners will also learn how to communicate with their pets.
The Advanced Dog Obedience Class is designed for those dogs who are ready to begin training off a leash, learning verbal and hand signals. Your dog will learn to interact with other dogs, but pay attention to your instructions. This class also prepares pet handlers and their dogs to enter the obedience trials and show rings.
All dogs must be current with Rabies and Distempter Shots. Documentation must be provided prior to registration.To register for the Dog Obedience classes call the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712.
