Social Day Care Program in Bristol for Seniors with Alzheimers
The Social Day Care Program in Bristol is a wonderful program that provides a much needed day of rest for caregivers of a loved one with Alzheimer's or a related dementia. Our participants look forward to Thursdays when they return to Day Away for a day of socialization, games, crafts and visits from local artists and musicians. We currently have openings for qualified participants in the Lakes Region.

New Hampton School's Community Events
This concert supports NH Gleans-Belknap County, a program run by the Belknap County Conservation District (BCCD). NH Gleans-Belknap County is part of a larger network operated by The Sustainability Institute at the University of New Hampshire. The program coordinates harvest of surplus vegetables and fruit from farms and home gardeners and distributes it to senior centers, food pantries and soup kitchens.
The Hired Men are a rag-tag band of musicians brought together by Peter O'Halloran (from Boston music staple the Dogmatics) and usually includes O'Halloran brothers Jimmy and Dan, as well as friends Johnny Coe, Marie Kettenring and J. Young Band. Member and fiddler, Marie Kettenring grew up in New Hampton and invited the band north to support this cause. She collaborated with her father, Ken Kettenring, a BCCD Board member to organize this benefit concert. Marie has been playing the violin/fiddle since she was 4 and has been performing since she was 8.

The New Hampton Garden Club is reaching out to the community to get new members. The Garden Club meets the 1st Tuesday, April through December, at the Gordon-Nash Library. These meetings begin at 9:30 AM and start with coffee and refreshments before their business meeting and program. It is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and make new friends while learning more about all phases of gardening. Their biggest projects are civic beautification, garden therapy to the elderly at Golden Crest Retirement Community, and working with the 5th Grade Jr. Garden Club at the New Hampton Community School. The club also maintains a table at the library where members put weekly floral or hobby displays. The dues are $12.50 and you can pick up a membership flyer at the library or just send your name, address, and contact information with a check made out to the New Hampton Garden Club and mail it to PO Box 242, New Hampton, NH 03256.
