MEREDITH — A few of the Inter Lakes Senior class officers assisted Mrs. Jamie Edge, School Outreach Counselor, in drawing the winners of the "Best Raffle Ever". The raffle was sponsored by the I-L After Prom Parents Committee to raise funds for the upcoming chem-free event, which will follow the Senior prom in May.
The lucky recipients are: Nancy Sapack winner of the stay at Mill Falls, Susan Lirakis will receive the Apple ipad, and Mary Mailand was the lucky winner of the $750 Best Buy gift card.
"The chem-free after prom was started years ago as a way to keep our kids safe. There tends to be a lot of fatal accidents around this time due to prom parties with alcohol and other drugs. We wanted to allow our kids to have fun in a safe environment and have a memorable time with their friends. This is a great way for parents and kids to come together senior year and have fun. We are always looking for positive experiences for our kids where there is no alcohol and/or drugs present", said Mrs. Edge.
Parents of the I-L Class of 2014, are planning a full night of fun, friends, food, festivities, prizes and memories! Proceeds from the raffle along with many donations received from area businesses, will help to make this event a success.
Those interested in making a donation or providing a prize for this event can contact 279-9912 or donations can be mailed to ILHS After-Prom, 1 Laker Lane, Meredith, NH 03253.

GILFORD — The start of the eight week Pub Mania Shuffle Spring Series, a 2 1/2 mile fun run/walk every Wednesday will begin on April 23 at 6 p.m. The course begins at Patrick’s parking lot in Gilford and meanders over and through the Meadowbrook property before looping back to Patrick’s.
Created as a fundraising event for the Patrick’s Pub Mania event and the WLNH Children’s Auction, the Shuffle has similar intentions as the Pub Mania event itself.
“This is about participating, having fun and making an impact in our community” explains Patrick’s co-owner Allan Beetle and Pub Mania Head Referee. “It’s a unique way to be part of this great event while getting outside for some exercise and fun”.
Organizers stress that the Mania Shuffle is not designed to be a competitive event. The $10 entry fee will be donated to the Pub Mania team of your choice and includes a complimentary beverage and chance to win in a post-shuffle raffle. Participants are encouraged to arrive 20 minutes before the walk begins to register. All of the proceeds of the Mania Shuffle will pass through to the WLNH Children’s Auction and on to children, families and programs here in the Lakes Region.

MEREDITH — Sacred Waters Yoga at Mill Falls in Meredith is offering a new workshop called Yoga Tap on Saturday, April 26 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. All are invited to join presenters Jennifer Whitcher and Catherine Turgeon to take part in this unique experience.
Jennifer Whitcher, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and certified yoga instructor, and Catherine Turgeon, certified EFT practitioner and Life Optimization Coach, have collaborated to combine yoga and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or "Tapping") to identify and promote the release of emotions stored in the body. While moving through a complete yoga practice with Jen, participants will pause in select poses and be led by Catherine using EFT techniques to address emotions that naturally surface while in each pose. This unique approach to personal discovery and healing will be beneficial for everyone, but especially those who are feeling "stuck".
The two-hour workshop will include a segment to introduce EFT, an hour of yoga instruction and tapping, finishing with a wrap-up session for participants to share their experiences and for answering questions.
Cost for the two-hour workshop is $20. For more information or to register, visit www.sacredwatersyoga.com or call the studio at 279-3243.
