St. Vincent de Paul Society blessed to be located in the Lakes Region

To The Daily Sun,

The Children's Foundation of the St. Vincent de Paul Society would like to thank the NH 1 Children's Auction and the many fine businesses and individuals in our community for their continued support. With this support, we are able to provide services "all year round" to thousands of children in the Lakes Regions whose families could use a "helping hand".

St. Vincent de Paul Society is a nonprofit organization, with an "all-volunteer staff" that provides valuable services, to the many families and individuals living in the Lakes Region. Some of the services provided include the SVDP Thrift Store which sells and donates new and gently used clothing, furniture, appliances and household items. All items are sold at an affordable price and/or donated to those who cannot pay. The SVDP Food Pantry provides free food to those in need once a month. Hours are Monday from 12 to 2 p.m. and Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m.. The SVDP Financial Assistance program works with families and individuals by supplementing existing programs by providing assistance with rent, medical, child care, transportation and utility payments. A wonderful team of volunteers work to help offer financial, social and spiritual comfort. The Prison Ministry and the Disaster Relief programs are some of the other programs which volunteer members work closely with other organizations such as the Red Cross, and Salvation Army.

St. Vincent de Paul Society is blessed to be located in the Lakes Region, where the people are generous, caring and willing to work together to truly make a difference in the lives of others.

If you would like more information about St. Vincent de Paul, its' programs, services or volunteering, please call 524-5470 or stop by the SVDP Thrift Store Tuesday thru Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Don't miss this opportunity to see acclaimed North Shore Acappella

To The Daily Sun,

What an opportunity ..... Residing here in the middle of New Hampshire has its benefits as well as shortcomings. No one could ask for a prettier and a friendlier place to live, but we don't often have the opportunity to see live performances from nationally known artists. Well, on May 2nd one of those rare opportunities will present itself. North Shore Acappella will perform at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. with homemade refreshments and soft drinks (a cash bar for beer and wine will also be available). The concert will begin at 7:45 p.m.. Ticket prices are $25 a piece and include the refreshments.
North Shore has won national acclaim after its appearance on NBC's The Sing Off television competition program. The group has been performing for 30 years (a period of time older than most of the TV show's contestants). They have opened for a number of great acts including Roberta Flack, The Temptations, and most recently, Jay Leno. Not only is there an opportunity to have a great evening out at the fabulous Winnipesaukee Playhouse, but all the net proceeds from this event will go to Genesis Behavioral Health — a local nonprofit organization providing mental health services to the Lakes Region.
Tickets are still available at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse box office by calling 603 279-0333. Don't delay. Seating is limited at the intimate theater; so act now.
You don't want to miss this opportunity. May 2nd, 7 p.m., $25/pp includes refreshments and world class entertainment at the new Winnipesaukee Playhouse.
