Country Carriage hosting Bead trunk Show

MEREDITH — The Country Carriage at Mill Falls Marketplace will host a Trunk Show on Saturday, December 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. featuring the American Bead Collection. The first bead in this "bedrock to beads" collection was crafted from Fine Grey Granite mined from the Sunapee Graniteworks' quarry in Sunapee.

Owner and craftsman Bill Stocker of Sunapee Graniteworks will demonstrate how he fashions each bead, one by one, from bedrock found throughout New England and beyond. He and his wife Pamela's goal is to produce beads from bedrock found in all 50 states.

Black Pearl, Palermo Ice, Scorzalite, and the 603 "Code of Arms", as well as Lepidolite and Red Beach from Maine, are among the many beads that will be available for sale at the Trunk Show.

New Hampton woman is lucky winner of Moultonborough Lions raffle

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Moultonborough Lions Club held its raffle drawing for $5,000 on Saturday at the Holiday Fair at the Central School. Katherine Velie was excited to draw the winning ticket.  And the lucky winner was Bonnie Batchelder from New Hampton.

President John Menken called her and found out she was just getting off work from E.M. Heath's. This was an extra bonus for the Lions because Heath's has been a strong supporter of the Lions over the years donating thousands of dollars in food, merchandise, and gift certificates along with letting the Lions sell the tickets in front of their store.

Bonnie was asked to sit tight and the check would be delivered to her. Treasurer Joe Keegan wrote out the check after getting some information from Bonnie and President John made the presentation. Bonnie has two girls and a boy whose birthday is on Christmas Eve. No doubt about it. This will be a Merry Christmas for the Batchelder family.

On another happy note, the Moultonborough Lions Club displayed their true Christmas Spirit as members voted to give almost $6,500 in donations back to the community during the last two business meetings.

Each of the four communities the club serves, (Moultonborough, Center Harbor, Sandwich and Tuftenboro) received a donation of $500 towards food baskets. Other organizations that received donations include the following: Lakes Region Food Pantry, Central New Hampshire and Lakes Region Visiting Nurse Associations, Community Caregivers, Mayhew Program, Make- a- Wish, "UP" Fund, Loon Conservation Committee, Lions Camp Pride, Vision 2015, and ILMA Interlakes Hockey.

Since the sale of the club to the town in 2007 the Lions have donated $187,437 back to the community and awarded $61,700 in scholarships. Additionally the club has paid $212,296 for inside maintenance of the building which serves so many organizations including Meals-on-Wheels, Women's club, Scouts, Weight Watchers to name a few.

The Moultonborough Lions hold a business meeting on the first Monday of every month at 7 p.m. Those who would like to find out more about Lionism can contact Pat and Joe Keegan at 253-9916 or John Menken at 707-7211.
