BELMONT — On September 19 at 7 p.m., Paul Wainwright will discuss “New England’s Colonial Meeting Houses and Their Impact on American Society” at the Corner Meeting House (CMH) in Belmont.
New England’s colonial meetinghouses embody an important yet little-known chapter in American history. Built mostly with tax money, they served as both places of worship and places for town meetings, and were the centers of life in colonial New England communities. Using photographs of the few surviving “mint condition” meetinghouses as illustrations, Paul Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture.
In colonial New England, there was little distinction between faith and community. Meetinghouses were built by the communities, usually but not always through taxation, and these were used for both religious worship and town business. They were the central focus of the community, and were an important point of contact for all. While most colonial meetinghouses that are still standing have been extensively renovated to meet the needs of their owners and the styles of the times, a few have not been substantially changed at all.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. The Corner Meeting House is located at the intersection of Fuller and Sargent Streets in the Village of Belmont. For additional information or directions call Chris at 524-8268.

FRANKLIN — Franklin Savings Bank works with the Friends Youth Mentoring Program, especially through the Fund for Community Advancement. Through this program volunteer mentors are matched with children, ages 6-18.
Each year, volunteer mentors devote over 13,000 hours to Merrimack County youth in mutually-rewarding, one-to-one relationships. Mentors serve as positive role models to enhance self-esteem and strengthen behavior at home, in school, and in the community. There are, however, 75 children waiting to be matched with a volunteer mentor. Support from Franklin Savings Bank will help the Friends Program connect these youth with mentors in the communities served by the organizations.
“Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders,” said Franklin Savings Bank President and CEO, Jeff Savage. “Franklin Savings Bank is pleased to assist The Friends Program with this $2,500 grant as they connect the youth of Boscawen, Penacook, Salisbury and surrounding communities with a positive force in their lives.”
“The Friends Program is an important Merrimack County resource who currently assists over 100 youth,” said Nancy Watson, Boscawen Office Manager. “Franklin Savings Bank looks forward to assisting Friends with their community outreach to someday reach the point when every child hoping for a mentor is no longer waiting. To assist these important efforts, FSB’s Boscawen Office is proud to partner by getting the word out through our office’s distribution of informational materials, Facebook postings, and community networking.”
The Friends Program was one of six organizations to receive funds this month through the competitive grant process. Over $792,000 has been awarded through 34 grant periods since the FSB Fund for Community Advancement was created in 1997.
The Fund provides support for substantial projects that enhance the lives of people in Central New Hampshire. For a recipient list and application information, visit www.fsbnh.com. Connect with FSB on Facebook at facebook.com/franklinsavingsbank for news and community updates.
