BARNSTEAD — The Barnstead-Alton-Gilmanton Republican Committee (BARC'G) has arranged to have Representative Peter Varney of Alton to be the guest speaker at their meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 12 at 6:30 pm at J.J. Goodwin's Restaurant in Center Barnstead.
Representative Varney, serving his first term in the legislature, will share his motivations for deciding to run for the Belknap County District 5 seat, his experiences since taking his seat in January, and how he's balancing his time vis-à-vis his recent reappointment as the New Durham Fire Chief. In addition, he will discuss his committee assignments, bills that he has worked on, and his stance on bills that the legislature is currently scrutinizing.
BARC'G meetings are open to Republicans and like-minded Independents from Alton, Barnstead, and Gilmanton, and any other towns in New Hampshire.

GILFORD — Patrick's Pub & Eatery, under the ownership of Jeff & Allan Beetle, is celebrating their 21st year of serving the Lakes Region community.
Patrick's was actually opened in 1987 and purchased by the Beetle's in 1994. "We like to think we inherited a pub rich in Irish tradition and infused some local spirit into it" explains chef and co-owner Jeff Beetle. "We've made a good thing even better."
Patrick's will be hosting their first ever "Anniversary Week" which begins this Monday, May 11th and runs through May 17th. They will be featuring special throwback menu and beverage specials, daily prizes, games and entertainment. In addition, they are giving away three Grand "Get-Out-of-Town" Prizes to customers who complete a Patrick's Party Pass. Prizes include 2 night stays at any InnSeason Resort, the Seaport Boston Hotel and the Woodstock Inn Station & Brewery.
"This is the first time we've ever done an anniversary special" explained Allan. "With our recent renovation mostly completed except for some exterior work, we thought this was a great time to put together a special week and celebrate 21 years of service to our customers and our community. We've tried to make it easy and fun for everyone to join us in this celebration".

LACONIA —With imagery that recalls Picasso and a palette that suggests Chagall, artist Steve Chase from Bradford, VT shows paintings of unflinching gaze and fearless color. His larger-than-life portraits and evocative landscapes are at The Studio, 50 Canal Street in downtown Laconia through May 31.
Chase has exhibited extensively in the Upper Valley, and has won Best of Show in exhibits at the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH. Using acrylics with heavy impasto he creates lush surfaces that are almost as engaging as his subject matter. A selection of his oil pastel drawings are also available to view, and each one is more engaging than the next.
The artist will be at a reception in his honor on Friday May 8th from 5-7 pm. Light refreshment will be provided, and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend. For more information, contact The Studio, 603-455-8008
