Children's Theater to perform 'Emperor New Clothes' at PSU


PLYMOUTH — IMPACT, the children's theater company of Jean's Playhouse in Lincoln, will present a stage adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tail "The Emperor's New Clothes" on Thursday, July 30, at the Silver Center for the Arts on the Plymouth State University campus.

"The Emperor's New Clothes" is the story of a terribly vain and foolish emperor who demands the finest clothes in the land for a Grande Parade. Swindlers convince him that they can make a suit from fabric that is invisible by people who are stupid or unfit for their jobs. No one can see the suit, but no one dares admit it until a child in the crowd blurts out that the emperor has no clothes. The emperor suspects the assertion is true, but continues the procession.

The audience will have a chance to meet the show's characters after the performance.

Other IMPACT performances remaining this summer are Aug. 6, "Snow White the the Seven Dwarves;" and Aug. 13, "Pinocchio."

Tickets, which can be purchased at the Silver Center box office, are $7 per seat (including babes in arms), with a group rate of $5 per seat for groups of 15 or more purchased at the same time. The box office can be reached at (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Tickets can be purchased online at silver.plymouth.edu. Convenience fees apply to online orders.

New Hampton Garden Club will prepare Old Home Day raffle baskets

NEW HAMPTON — The New Hampton Garden club held their monthly meeting on July 7 with discussion regarding the upcoming New Hampton Old Home Day on August 8 and and plans for once again offering several gift baskets for raffles. In the past these have been an enjoyable activity for those attending the event, as well as people purchasing advance tickets when they are unable to be at Old Home Day.

As usual these baskets will be loaded with surprise contents with the following categories: Made in N. H. products, wine basket, children's theme and a reader's delight tray w/books and treats. These baskets have several gift certificates tucked in with the plentiful contents. We will be selling raffle tickets at the New Hampton Fire House on August 7 at the Bloodmobile. Come one and all to buy tickets and donate blood.

Ellie Morrison passed out an information sheet on mulch. She then discussed the various gardens that the club maintains and what flowers are grown in them and where they are. She noted that the person in charge of each garden is listed in our book but encouraged all to help with the weeding and clean up of the gardens. The Korean/Vietnam garden has been mulched, weeded, and pruned. Priscilla shared that a veteran from Bristol has been helping out at the garden and we welcome any other veterans to join in and help us maintain this garden spot.

LACONIA — On Saturday July 25 and Saturday August 1, twenty-four communities will participate in one of the longest running and most successful household hazardous waste collection programs in New England. Four collection sites will be open each day from 8:30 a.m.  to noon (Belmont, Franklin, Gilford, and Meredith on July 25 and Bristol, Laconia, Moultonborough, and Ossipee on August 1).

Residents and property owners in the 24 participating communities may bring up to ten gallons or 50 pounds of household hazardous products in for safe disposal. The participating communities for the collection consist of: Alexandria, Andover, Belmont, Bridgewater, Bristol, Center Harbor, Effingham, Franklin, Freedom, Gilford, Gilmanton, Hebron, Hill, Holderness, Laconia, Meredith, Moultonborough, New Hampton, Northfield, Ossipee, Sanbornton, Sandwich, Tamworth, and Tilton.

Every year since 1986, the Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) has coordinated annual household hazardous waste collections for communities throughout the region interested in participating in the shared collection program. This program employs a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved waste transporter which collects and safely disposes of household hazardous waste.

Information on collection sites and accepted materials can be found at http://www.lakesrpc.org/services_hhw.asp or by calling LRPC at 279-8171.
