MEREDITH — Starting on Sunday, May 31, Moulton Farm in Meredith kicks off their popular series of farm brunches. "It's a nice way to enjoy some great food while relaxing and enjoying the view of our fields and gardens," says John Moulton, owner of the Meredith farm that has been actively farmed since the 1890's.
The entire family will enjoy the farm's outdoor brunch buffet featuring seasonal fruit, baked goods, and egg and breakfast meat dishes prepared by the farm's talented kitchen and bakery staff. "We're very fortunate to have a talented baker who trained at Johnson & Wales University," says Moulton. "Trish's baked goods are wonderful and eating them in a beautiful farm setting makes them even better."
The farm brunch buffet opens at 9 am and closes at noon on select Sundays through September. The first brunch buffet is on Sunday, May 31. The other brunches are on June 14, June 21, July 12, August 9, August 30, September 13, and September 27. Seating is on a first come first seated basis.

LACONIA — The monthly Community Coffee House at Pitman's Freight Room will be held Tuesday, May 26 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Freight Room in Laconia. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
The event is an open mic concept where individuals from the community are welcome to perform live musical pieces, songs, poems, comedy skits, short stories, and more. In the past few months, the event has attracted live folk musicians, authors, singers from around the state, All-State musicians from local high schools, students from the University of New Hampshire, and many others. There is no sign-up sheet prior to the event, rather people are asked to share their interest in performing to the event's MC when they arrive.
Admission cost is $7 per person. All proceeds from this event will go toward local Laconia High School senior, Alana Persson, to help offset the cost of her tuition to travel with the international non-profit organization Up With People (UWP). Persson has been raising funds since the Fall of 2014 and although close to her goal she is still shy of the $15,000 that needs to be raised. She will be departing next month on June 28 for Denver, Colorado to begin her year of international travel, service, and performance with a cast of 100 other young individuals.
"It does not seem possible that my adventure is just one month away, and although I am excited I still need to stay focused on raising the rest of the funds needed," states Persson. "I truly appreciate all that everyone has done to support me in in this and I hope to see you at the Coffee House!"
