Her generous family has continued this tradition since the mid 1970's.
Hart's Turkey Farm Restaurant has partnered with the Meredith Parks and Recreation Department to provide this wonderful meal which will be served at the Meredith Community Center at 12 noon. Doors open at 11:30 a.m..
Anyone wishing to volunteer to help serve the meal should contact volunteer coordinator Kristen Eldgidge at 279-5568.

LACONIA — On the evening of Tuesday, November 18 starting at 5 p.m. Irwin Ford Lincoln will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang. This will be a night filled with fun, food and prizes.
The guest of honor will be long time Laconia resident Walter Ayer, Jr. with his original Mustang purchased for $3,322.35 at Irwin Ford back in 1964. Dave Clark, the sales manager at that time, will also be at this very special event.
From the moment the Ford Mustang was introduced 50 years ago, it was destined to be the classic and much-loved American muscle car. Within a year of its introduction, nearly half a million Mustangs were driven off of Ford dealership lots Just like Walter Ayer, Jr. did 50 years ago at Irwin Ford Lincoln
All are welcomed to join Irwin Ford Lincoln as they look back to over 50 years and celebrate the all-new 2015 Mustang modernized once again. Since its debut at auto shows around the world, excitement has been building for the all-new 2015 Mustang. The all-new sophisticated design clearly inspired by 50 years of Mustang heritage has evolved to attract a wider array of customers. Mustang is now available with three engines, offering a broader power of choice – a more powerful 5.0-liter V8, a 3.7-liter V6 and an all-new fuel-efficient 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. Mustang sets new performance and dynamics benchmarks for the brand with world-class handling, more precise steering control and enhanced ride comfort.

GILFORD — On Tuesday, November 18 at 6:30 pm, the Gilford Public Library will host musician Dudley Laufman for a special presentation on the history and culture of contra dancing in New Hampshire.
Since the late 1600's, the lively tradition of contra dancing has kept people of all ages swinging and sashaying in barns, town halls and schools around the state.

Presenter Dudley Laufman brings this tradition to life with stories, poems, and recordings of callers, musicians, and dancers – past and present.
Live music, always integral to this dance form, will be played on the fiddle and melodeon. Willing audience members may be invited to dance the Virginia Reel. This New Hampshire Humanities Program is co-sponsored with the Thompson-Ames Historical Society and is free and open to the public. All are invited to attend.
