FDR to Visit Wright Museum On Tuesday, May 22 at the Wright Museum of WWII in Wolfeboro, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the nation’s 32nd President, will recount the changes that occurred in the U.S. between 1941 and 1945. More correctly stated, actor Gary Stamm will impersonate FDR and describe what took place during WWII on the home front, which proved as important as any battle fought in Europe, Russia or the Pacific. “The men, women, and children on the home front supported the war effort in many ways,” noted Wright Museum Executive Director Mike Culver. “They volunteered, participated in government-mandated rationing and price controls, and purchased war bonds. The film industry in Hollywood

also churned out movies and cartoons to support the war effort.” Through impersonating FDR, Culver said Stamm will provide “a unique, lively look” inside an aspect of the war that is often overlooked. “The war also affected women and minorities, many of whom took over what had generally been seen as ‘men’s’ jobs,” he said. “There was a lot happening behind the scenes in World War II to support the war effort abroad.” Stamm’s career spans more than 40 years in theater, radio, television, and other media. He wrote, directed, and did voice-over work for HannaBarbara Productions in Hollywood. Wright Museum’s 2018 Lecture Series takes place from 7 to 8 pm every

Tuesday through October 9. Admission is $8.00 per person for non-members, and $3.00 for Wright Museum members unless otherwise noted. Due to limited seating, attendees are strongly encouraged to make reservations by calling 603-569-1212. The Museum’s doors open one hour before the program begins. To learn more about the Lecture Series, or the museum, visit www.wrightmuseum. org. The Wright Museum of World War II is located at 77 Center Street Wolfeboro, NH and open daily to the public for the 2018 season from May 1 through October 31. Museum hours are Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, and Sunday from noon to 4 pm.

Comedy and Great Music Coming Up at Flying Monkey As summer approaches, the The Flying Monkey Performance Center in downtown Plymouth welcomes acclaimed comedienne Paula Poundstone on Friday, May 25 at 7:30 pm. Appearing on stage with a stool, a microphone and a can of Diet Pepsi, Poundstone is famous for her razorsharp wit and spontaneity. The Boston Globe said, “Poundstone improvises with a crowd like a jazz musician... swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net.” The paper also noted that, “You know Poundstone’s a great comic the way you know any fine performer when you

see one; there’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong.” Poundstone’s off-kilter sensibility and impeccable timing made her a perfect fit for NPR’s “oddly informative,” weekly news quiz program, “Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me,” which she joined as a regular panelist seven years ago. The show is broadcast in 50 states and gives Poundstone a chance to match wits with some of today’s leading pundits - not to mention interact with some of the people at the forefront of our nation’s eyes, such

as Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer and former White House Press Secretary, the late Tony Snow. “NPR has a long history as a great source of information. They have made some of the funniest comedy shows, and they do the most compelling interviews. I hope to combine all of those things with a live audience, and without mucking it up. If I should succeed, I’m hoping they change their name to NPPR,” says Poundstone. No mucking it up here. Fans should be prepared to laugh themselves silly all night. The Flying Monkey welcomes Grammy Award-winning singersongwriter Marc Cohn to the Plymouth stage on Saturday, June 2 at 7:30 pm. Rising star Matt Nakoa will open the show. Marc Cohn is rightly proud of his Grammy Award but it’s not the most valuable thing in his house. The trophy sits in a heaving bookcase right above a copy of Bob Dylan’s “The Lyrics.” That thick volume was once owned by Dylan, who presented it to Cohn with a personal inscription when they toured together in 1992. As you might guess, it’s priceless to Cohn. “My kids all know, in case of a fire, I grab the kids, they grab the book,” says the singer-songwriter, laughing. “The Grammy is on its own.”

Lyrics have always been the fuel for Cohn, the singer-songwriter best known for “Walking in Memphis” from his self-titled debut album. When Cohn talks about the night in 1991 when he won the Grammy for best new artist, he reminisced on a shared connection with his musical influences. “It was very, very poignant and meaningful to be on that stage and accept an award that my heroes had won in the past,” he says. “The night itself was otherworldly. I felt like I was in a waking dream.” His connection with the Grammys endures: He co-wrote half the songs on William Bell’s album “This Is Where I Live,” which won the best Americana album Grammy in 2016. This year, a tune he co-wrote for the Blind Boys of Alabama is nominated for best American roots performance. For Cohn and his fans, though, it’s always been about experiencing a live performance. “I’ve got an audience that comes to see me when I come into town and I’m able to do what I love for a living,” he says. “As complicated as it is now, that to me is still an incredible blessing.” Tickets for upcoming shows are available by calling the box office at 603-536-2551 or visiting www. flyingmonkeyNH.com.

Chillin’ While Grillin’ Burgers, Burgers, Burgers! By Chef Kelly Ross One thing 99 percent of the population can agree on is that, of all the many choices of great foods we can cook on the grill, burgers are the most popular item. Part of the reason is because a burger is less expensive than a steak, but to me, it’s because of the flavor the grill gives the burger. We have all cooked a burger on the stove in a frying pan and it’s okay, but the flavor of a burger on the grill is 100fold better. Admittedly, ground beef

might not be the healthiest protein in the world, but it is the fat content combined with a hot flame that creates that outstanding flavor. The way I look at it, grilling season is not a time to be counting calories. But then again, I am a chef, and you know what they say, never trust a skinny chef! We all love our burgers and we all have our favorite toppings. The basic burger is an American staple with cheese and a couple of vegetables and a favorite condiment. I have a

tendency to mix it up when I eat a burger, especially with the condiment. Thousand Island dressing is my favorite burger condiment, but I also go with A-1 steak sauce, BBQ sauce, teriyaki, as well as mayo and ketchup. I also love to change up the cheeses. To me, the only bad burger I have ever had is a well-done, dry burger. The greatest thing about cooking a burger is branching out, being adventurous and keeping an open mind to new ideas. To many, a burger is a burger. I disagree. Be adventurous, try new toppings, and try stuffed burgers. Make your cookout be something fun and original and exciting. My job today is to give you fun ideas, some that are basically different, and some that are just off the wall. Your crowd may dictate how fun and crazy you want to get. One of the many crazes in the culinary world over the past few years is a stuffed burger. Bringing that trend to a whole new level is something that has been called a Beer Can Burger. The name of this had me sold immediately, even before I knew what it actually

consisted of. This is the ultimate stuffed burger, which is a meal in and of itself. The traditional stuffed burger is done with two 3-oz. burger patties with fun fixings in between, pressed together along the sides and grilled. The Beer Can Burger is much larger because the process with this beast is to make a bowl out of the seasoned ground beef. You take 8 oz. of burger and roll it into a ball. You then lightly grease the lower half of a beer or soda can and slowly push and twist it down so the burger hugs the can as you do so. You don’t want to push down too far: Leave maybe ½ to ¾ of an inch or so on the bottom, and the burger should ride up the sides of the can about an inch high or so. You are looking for a bowl-shaped burger. If you want a smaller version, you could probably use a slimmer Red Bull can. Here is the recipe and process. This recipe is for four Beer Can Burgers. Here is what I use, but you can obviously tweak the recipe to use other • Chillin Continued on page 10

In a large bowl, combine well the ground beef with the Worcestershire and the granulated garlic. Roll into four ½ lb. balls. Wash the beer can and then lightly grease the lower half of the can. Lightly insert the can gently into the beef to form a bowl. Press the beef up around the sides of the can and carefully pull the can out. Season well with salt and pepper. Wrap two slices of bacon around the upper part of the burger bowl. The bacon will usually stick to the burger, but if not, use a toothpick. Place the sliced onion and bell and jalapeno peppers into the bowl, then the cheddar and top with the slice of provolone. On a preheated medium heat grill, grill the burger for about 20-30 minutes to get a good medium cooked burger. Keep the grill cover closed with the exception of checking up on the burger from time to time. For obvious reasons, do not flip the burger. If you used toothpicks, pull them out after 5 to 10 minutes as the bacon starts to set. Once done to your likeness, pop onto a grilled roll and add the lettuce and tomato and your favorite condiment. This is not an every day burger, but it’s a fun specialty burger. If the Beer Can Burger is a little too much for you, here is a smaller take on a great stuffed burger. As I said earlier

and

and also have mentioned in some stuffed burger recipes in the past, the general rule of thumb is to take two 3-oz. patties and add some favorite extras to the top of one and press the second patty on top and squeeze the edges of the two burgers together. It is always important to refrigerate the stuffed burgers before grilling, because this helps keep all the fun stuff inside the burger. The usual stuffing items are sautéed onions, peppers, and mushrooms, bacon, salsa, cheeses, among many other goodies. I love a good dip. Whether a good beer and cheese dip or one of the many other cheese dips, a southwestern dip, or the usual onion or clam dip, I have never met a dip I didn’t like. My all-time favorite is a great Spinach and Artichoke Dip. It is so good and versatile. This is the theme and mentality of the Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Burger. It is an original and I guarantee it will truly “wow” your BBQ crowd. Here is what you will need. 4 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 cup of shredded mozzarella 1/4 cup of Parmesan, preferably fresh 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained 1/2 cup chopped artichoke hearts, also drained well 1 clove garlic, chopped a pinch of red pepper flakes juice of fresh lemon wedge salt and pepper 1 ½ pounds ground beef 4 burger rolls In a bowl, combine all ingredients other than the burger and rolls. Mix very well until thoroughly combined. With the 1½ lbs. of burger, break it down to eight 3-oz. balls and squish into thin patties. Make them into nice round circles.

Memorial Weekend Craft Fair at the North Conway Community Center on May 26 to 27 Get crafty over Memorial Day weekend! Don’t miss the Memorial Weekend Craft Fair at the North Conway Community Center, taking place on May 26 and 27, from 10 am to 5 pm both days. Located next to the Conway Scenic Railroad at 78 Norcross Circle, North Conway, the fair will feature over 80 fabulous exhibitors inside and outside the new building, rain or shine. Some of the exhibitor offerings will include beautiful alpaca products with a live alpaca exhibit on Saturday, soy candle demo, fine jewelry demo, feather art, wildlife/nature and African • Chillin Continued from page 10 middle of four of the patties. Don’t place so much on that when you top with the other patty the filling squishes out on the sides. Once you top with the second patty, press firmly around the edges and lightly push the patties together so everything is tight. It is very important that you refrigerate these for at least a few hours to let the filling stiffen up. If still soft when cooking, the filling is more likely to leak out of the burger. Before grilling, season the burgers with salt and pepper and then put on a preheated greased grill. Four minutes or so on each side is generally a good rule of thumb, but obviously adjust to your liking. These

photography, beautiful cedar night lights and furniture, primitive wood furniture, hand painted slates, NH maple syrups, hand-poured soaps/ lotions, kettle corn, homemade fudge and caramels, awesome pottery, metal garden decor, totes/quilts, doll clothes, inlaid ceramics, fairy photos, quilted teddy bears, and lots more. Also featured will be Tim Janis Music, food, and free admission and parking. Friendly pets are welcome. For information, call Joyce at 603-5284014, or visit www.joycescraftshows. com.

are so good. Pop them on a grilled roll. As for a condiment, if you have any extra cream cheese mixture, lightly microwave it and then lather it onto the roll. Mayonnaise would be my second choice. Regardless of the condiment, enjoy! Last but not least, this will likely sound like the weirdest burger you have ever heard of. After some research, I realized how popular it is with many burger gourmets. Believe it or not, welcome to the S’mores Burger. I know it sounds crazy, but as I tell everyone about trying something for the first time, try it before condemning it. Yes, it’s what you think. One thing I have known for many years is that chocolate actually

goes well with beef and pork if done right. Here is the low-down on this yummy, but eccentric, burger and what you will need for 4 burgers. 5 oz. of a thin, dark chocolate bar 1 lb. ground beef 4 graham crackers 8 marshmallows salt and pepper 4 burger rolls Heat the grill to high. Turn your 1 lb. of ground beef into four 4-oz. balls and squish flat. Break the chocolate into 4 equal pieces and put in the middle of each burger. Fold the burger in such a way that the chocolate is in the middle of the burger. They should ideally be as big in diameter as half a graham cracker. Season the burgers with a little

salt and pepper. The burgers should be grilled for 3-5 minutes on each side, or to your liking. While the burgers are cooking, roast the marshmallows on a skewer over the grill. Grill the burger rolls, then put ½ of a graham cracker on the bottom roll. Top with the burger, marshmallow, another graham cracker and the top of the roll. I know it may sound weird, but most will enjoy, especially the kids. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to live outside the box and give these crazy burgers a try. Happy grilling!

Lake Invaders - What You Need To Know By Mark Foynes They’re like unruly and uninvited houseguests that just won’t leave. They cramp the style of everyone around them and you feel like you’re getting eaten out of house and home. Invasive plants and other harmful exotic aquatic life have taken up residence in many of the state’s lakes, rivers, and ponds. A study published on the N.H. Lakes Association website documents 87 waterbodies impacted by invasives, mostly concentrated in the Lakes Region and the southern tier. Among the scores of affected lakes are Winnipesaukee, Winnisquam, Wentworth, and Squam. Of the 14 exotic plant species on the NHDES prohibited list, eight are currently found in the Granite State. These include various strains of milfoil, fanwort, and curly-leaf pondweed. Additionally, there are a number of nonnative mollusks that are now present in

states and pose an immediate threat. One of the leading pathways allowing invasives to jump from pond to pond are boaters who unwittingly allow invasives to hitchhike in the bilges and on the props of their watercraft. The Threat Invasives have the potential to degrade water quality and compromise the overall health of a lake or even an entire watershed. In plain English, they can transform a pristine waterbody into a deep, yucky puddle. How? It’s like the uninvited houseguest becomes a bully. Having arrived on the scene, they push out the native plant life, almost as though with a sense of entitlement. Over a relatively short time, the

invasive aquatic plants can reduce the diversity of native plant, animal, and insect species by crowding them out. Milfoil, for example, can form thick mats, and the plumes can grow to a height of 20 feet beneath the water’s surface. Their dense canopies on the water surface are considered unsightly and also prevent light from reaching other varieties of plants that starve, being unable to photosynthesize. Milfoil is like the bully of the aquatic playground that steals your lunch money. Variable milfoil has a competitive advantage over other plant species in that it reproduces rapidly, mostly by plant fragments reaching the lake bottom and taking root. Also, nothing native to the region eats it. So, it grows, reproduces, and spreads. Removing milfoil is difficult and laborious. Plant biologists strongly recommend against removing it by hand since pieces of the plant invariably snap off, leading to its spread. Once established, it is darned near impossible to eradicate and a tough slog just to mitigate. A 2018 N.H. Lakes Association advocacy survey of its membership revealed that 93 percent of people who are passionate about the state’s fresh water bodies believe that controlling non-native plants as a priority. Respondents identified “Preventing and managing the spread of aquatic invasive species” as “Very • Lake Invaders Continued on page 21

May 21, 2018 • Lake Invaders Continued from page 20 Important” (70 percent) or important (23 percent). The same survey revealed that 90 percent of the Associations’ members deemed “Protecting and improving water quality” as a priority. To a great degree, the two priorities are intertwined. A diverse aquatic ecosystem helps promote the water quality that draws folks to the region in the first place. Where do these invaders come from? Invasive milfoil, which is native to Asia and parts of Europe, was probably first introduced in the 1940s as a decorative plant for aquariums. There is speculation that some of these fish tanks may have been dumped into lakes and ponds, introducing the aggressive plant into the ecosystem. (As an aside, the root of milfoil’s scientific name, myriophyllum, is a Latinized version of the Greek myrio, meaning ten thousand - or just plain “too many to count;” it’s the same root word from which the contemporary English word myriad is derived). Aquariums were also one of the culprits with the introduction of the

Chinese mystery snail. Additionally, they were introduced into San Francisco food markets in the 1890s. Growing up to two inches, they are impressive. But these golf ball-sized mollusks displace native snails and secrete bacteria that can become parasitic to some other animals, perhaps even humans. (They also harbor a tiny flatworm that is believed to cause liver damage in people). What’s Being Done? There are public agencies at the town and state levels that have been active in combatting exotic species. Many municipalities in the Lakes Region have a town-based committee devoted to milfoil mitigation. Wolfeboro, Moultonborough, and Tuftonboro have such committees to combat the weed. Meredith went so far as to call their committee - formed over a decade ago - the Milfoil Crisis Committee to combat the invasive plant in Round and Fish coves. To assist their efforts, NHDES secures state and federal funding that’s regranted to towns and agencies for • Lake Invaders Continued on page 22

programs is the Lake Host program, which recruits and trains volunteers to inspect watercraft at several strategic boat launch sites around the state. According to the organization’s most recent newsletter, volunteers collected 22 different kinds of invasive species off boats and trailers and kept them out of our lakes. These species included the Chinese mystery snail, Eurasian milfoil, variable milfoil, water chestnut, and Zebra mussels. In addition, NH LAKES, as the Association is also known, participates in advocacy work at the legislative level to help enact measures that will protect N.H. waters. And through its Lake Host Program and ability to aggregate data from multiple sources, it seeks to educate residents and visitors about steps they can take on their own. According to NH LAKES, its Lake Host volunteers logged 48,000 hours conducting over 94,000 boat inspections in 2017 at 101 launch sites - the most ever in the program’s history. (Some years back, I encountered one of these Lake Host volunteers; she was affable, amiable, and knowledgeable. An ideal ambassador for the program, she explained that her role was not to wag any fingers, but to be a last line

of defense against invasives and to educate boaters about the risks they might be inadvertently presenting to the waters they cherish). On a more local scale, there are also a number of lake associations that often work in tandem with municipal officials. One such example is the Merrymeeting Lake Association (MMLA) in New Durham. As a nonprofit membership organization, it endeavors to maintain the “pristine” status of the lake. (Pristine is both an official and a subjective term to define water quality; Merrymeeting and Newfound Lakes are both considered “pristine”). Consequently, there is considerable overlap between MMLA and the town’s milfoil mitigation committee. The group is also endeavoring to acquire a 2,000acre parcel overlooking Merrymeeting Lake. Recently, a developer planned to build a 220-unit subdivision; the plan was scrapped and MMLA now has the opportunity to place the parcel into permanent conservation. They will need to raise $2 million during a compressed time frame, but campaign • Lake Invaders Continued on page 23

Summer 2018 Apprentice Company at Winnipesaukee Playhouse The Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith is excited to announce the return of The Apprentice Company for the summer of 2018! The program allows students to build unique experiences. Education Director Timothy L’Ecuyer says that, “Students who participate in this program gain a lot of experience very quickly from working in production departments, assisting at camp, seeing professional productions, and contributing to a special outdoor performance of a Shakespearean play. Because the program schedule is fully customizable, students are able to pick the options that fit best with them!”

The Apprentice Company is for high school theatre students, including 2018 graduates, interested in multiple disciplines of theatre who want to take the next step in their experience and training by learning directly from industry professionals. The program combines hands-on work with educational seminars and professional guidance. Students in the program may perform, teach, attend professional rehearsals, or assist in the construction of scenery and costumes. Participants make connections with industry professionals and with each other.

• Lake Invaders Continued from page 22 organizers have already received $200,000 in pledges. Alton is also being aggressive in maintaining its freshwater bodies. In an unusual development, Alton and New Durham officials have joined forces to assemble a bi-town committee investigating ways to safeguard the Merrymeeting River, which is part of the greater Winnipesaukee water system. In summary, a number of state, municipal, and nonprofit entities are endeavoring to maintain our lakes and sustain our quality of life. But they need your help. What You Can Do Following a few simple tips will help safeguard our lakes and ponds. Several local sources, corroborated with those from several similar entities in other Northeastern states, suggest the following:

• Boaters: Dry all watercraft and equipment for at least five days before entering a different body of water. • Boaters: If you must enter a new waterbody within five days, wash your boat, trailer, tackle, and other recreational gear with hot water (140 Fahrenheit is recommended), then dry. Flush your motor’s cooling system, live wells, etc. Consider alternate anchor ropes, nets, and equipment. • All: Learn to identify milfoil and other aquatic invaders. Report any sightings to NHDES - 603-271-3503 To learn more, check out these educational resources, some of which were consulted for this article: • www.des.nh.gov • NHDES also has an excellent 102-page plant ID guide that has a section on invasive plants on their website. The url is too long to print, so Google “aquatic plant ID NH” (without the quotes) or email pip@ des.state.nh.us for a PDF version • NH Lakes Association: www. nhlakes.org • The UNH Lay Lakes Monitoring Program: https://extension.unh. edu/programs/lakes-lay-monitoring-program

• Boaters: Drain live wells and bilge water from your boat before leaving a waterbody. • Anglers: Empty all water from bait buckets onto land and not into a body of water. • Anglers: Do not move any fish, including bait, from one lake to another.

Cali Morris, who was an Apprentice Company member in 2014 and 2015 says “AppCo is honestly one of the greatest ways to immerse yourself in theatre, and the whole experience is fantastic. There’s a bit of everything to try, and it is well worth doing so! Best summers of my life.” Those interested in participating in the program may visit winnipesaukee-

playhouse.org or call 603-279-0333 to register for an audition or interview on June 1 or 2. The Winnipesaukee Playhouse, a year-round theatre, is a 501(c)3 organization.

Love a lake? Attend the 25th Annual Lake Congress! Celebrate the history of lake culture in New Hampshire and find out what needs to be done during the next 25 years to keep our lakes clean and healthy. On Friday, June 1, Dr. Ken Wagner, past president of the North American Lake Management Society, will present “Climate Change and Lakes: What You Really Need to Know” as the keynote address at the New Hampshire Lakes Association’s (NH LAKES) 2018 Lakes Congress. The effects of changing weather patterns on New Hampshire’s 1,000 lakes will be highly variable and will impact the health of these treasured resources in various ways. Dr. Wagner will discuss what it is we really need to know about climate change and our lakes and will highlight ways we can respond. The 2018 Lakes Congress, presented by the Grappone Automotive Group and hosted by NH LAKES, will be held on the evening of Thursday, May 31, and all-day on Friday, June 1, at Church Landing at Mill Falls in Meredith near Lake Winnipesaukee. Approximately 200 lake enthusiasts, natural resource professionals, and state agency staff, legislative representatives, municipal officials, and business leaders are expected to gather together at this 25th annual education, training, and networking event. The event will kick off on the evening of Thursday, May 31, with a fascinating presentation called “Summer Camps: The White Mountains (and Lakes!) Roots of an Iconic American Experience” given by Cynthia Robinson, Director of the

Museum of the White Mountains. Attendees will learn how experiencing nature in New Hampshire’s lakes and mountains has been life-changing for generations of children. This session is co-hosted by the Lake Winnipesaukee Association and NH LAKES. Interested individuals may attend just Thursday evening’s presentation ($5 per person and pre-registration is required). On Friday after the keynote address, Lakes Congress attendees will have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshop sessions addressing topics including do-it-yourself lake-friendly landscaping practices; preventing and managing the spread of aquatic invasive species; the use of drones in natural resource management; the ecology, management, and human health impacts of toxic bacteria

blooms in lakes; fishing and fisheries management, and much more.

“At this year’s Lakes Congress, while we will celebrate all that NH LAKES and our partners have accomplished over the past 25 years, we will also look forward and consider what must be done during the next 25 years to keep our lakes clean and healthy,” commented Andrea LaMoreaux, NH LAKES Vice President. “We’re especially excited this year as we will be unveiling a new brand and logo for our organization at Lakes Congress!” This event is open to the public. To learn more about the 2018 Lakes Congress and to register, visit www. nhlakes.org/lakes-congress. NH LAKES is the only statewide, membersupported nonprofit organization working to inspire the responsible care and use of all New Hampshire’s lakes to keep them healthy for the benefit of current and future generations.

A Gem of an Exhibit - the World War II Paintings of Private Charles J. Miller By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper He was somewhat modest. He never bragged or sought the spotlight. Yet, Charles J. Miller found and created something beautiful out of one of history’s worst chapters. Charles Miller was a true artist; he loved to draw and paint, and he was a masterful storyteller through his artwork. Like all truly gifted artists, he didn’t do it for fame or the possibility of making a lot of money. Charles most likely created art because it was a part of him and a way of seeing the world. And for Charles, it was just plain fun to draw and paint. An exhibit at the Wright Museum of World War II, on Center Street in Wolfeboro, is a must-see for everyone, whether you are an art lover or a history buff, a veteran, or all or none of the above. Why? Because the exhibit, titled “Private Charles J. Miller: WWII

big city, saw and experienced when serving during wartime. It is a highly unique exhibit—on view until June 17—and there is still time to visit the museum to see the wonderful collection of watercolors. Everything about the images in the exhibit make them very viable works of art: spot-on perspective, shading, light, views as a soldier would have actually seen them, and an ability to make you feel you are right there in the action, whether you wanted to be or not. I visited the Wright Museum on a Friday afternoon on a sunny day in midMay leading into a balmy weekend. The museum was starting to get busy at that time of year, and as always, preparing for a bustling summer. As I started my annual tour (I try

to visit at least once a summer) of the Wright Museum, I was impressed, as I always am, by the grand size of the museum rooms, and the care taken with the vast collection of exhibit pieces. As any good museum does, a lot stays the same, but just as much changes to offer new things to view, mixed with displays I have seen in the past. I wanted to take the time to tour the entire museum, even though I know it well, before visiting the two exhibits I had particularly come to see: the Charles Miller artwork and another exhibit that also will be on view until June 17: Memories of World War II Photographs from the Associated Press Archives. When you take a tour of the museum rooms, plan to be there a while, because there is a lot to see. This is our national history, and you want to have time to see every part of it as interpreted by the Wright Museum. During the season, you might be able to speak with museum volunteers who lived through the war years, and/or are veterans. I always think the opportunity to talk to a veteran is a privilege, because these are the people who can tell us about those years. Also, they are kind enough to volunteer at the museum, and they aren’t just filling in time during their retirement years. They too are national treasures; if you happen to learn someone at the museum is a veteran, stop and thank them for their service. It is surely appreciated and the least we • Wright Museum Continued on page 27

May 21, 2018 • Wright Museum Continued from page 26 can do. In the lobby, a little area displays photos and is titled American Families on the Home Front - 1939-1945. According to information, the Wright Museum is asking individuals to share their families’ home front WWII photographs. (Call 603-569-1212 for information on how to present photos to the museum.) It is a charming way to start a visit to the museum, and already there are a number of black-and-white photos of families during WWII. I was particularly touched by a little portrait photo of a small boy dressed up for his photo session. He gazes at the camera, with a sweet look on his face. He is holding tight to a photo of his Dad dressed in soldier’s uniform. If the wonderful photo of two generations, both touched by war, doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, nothing will. In the Home Front gallery space, you will be treated to a unique experience and allowed to step into the war years as lived by those in the United States. We see toys children would have played with, musical instruments that entertained, vignettes depicting a garage area, a kitchen from the war years and a living room. My favorite vignette was a re-creation of a 5 and dime store called Gould’s 5 cent and 10 cent Store. We can peek in the large picture windows and see a re-creation of a store with lots of items from the time period on display. Just about every aspect of life on the home front is interpreted, from black outs to gas rationing to what foods people ate and much more. The time tunnel area is always a treat and a unique way to take visitors through the years from the start of World War II to the end of the war. We walk through a series of rooms, each offering the news of that time, what was popular for movies and culture, and a glimpse at experiences of loved ones fighting far away in the war. I was happy to see all those who served are included in the time tunnel exhibit, including a display dedicated to Doris Miller, a steward on the USS West Virginia. He distinguished himself by courageous conduct and devotion to duty during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He was the first African-American awarded the Navy Cross, the service’s highest award, for his actions during the attack. I won’t

1934 and 1945. The exhibit is set up in chronological order from the stirrings of war until the end of fighting and signing of peace treaties. I will warn you, it is an emotional look at World War II. Not grisly or stomach-wrenching, but instead showing the emotions of the people from all walks of life that endured the conflict. We see such images as Mussolini leading a goose-step march rehearsal of troops in 1938; Nazis marching on Nuremberg; their victorious march on the Champs-Elysees in 1940; Londoners sheltering underground in a subway area in 1940; a determined, yet grim-faced Jimmy Stewart being inducted in 1941; an explosion in Pearl Harbor; a Harlem YMCA dance that offered relaxation for soldiers; what Japanese Americans faced; and as the war wound down, photos of the discovery by our troops of concentration camps, and then, surrendered German soldiers being jeered at as they are marched through • Wright Museum Continued on page 28

spoil the story because you will read about it during a tour of the time tunnel, but Miller’s brave and amazing actions saved lives. His story is compelling and shows what true heroism is about. After the time tunnel, a Life in the Barracks area is a real-life display of what living quarters for soldiers were like, and right next to it, we are treated to an amazing, huge area full of World War II vehicles, and even a plane suspended from the ceiling. You can view this exhibit from ground level or move to the secondfloor display area that overlooks the vehicles for an even more spectacular view. The exhibits lining the second-floor area are full of stories, images and more of our nation’s history during the war years. And finally, the visitor enters the gallery space where you will find the Associated Press photo exhibit and next door, the Charles Miller display. I started with the AP photo exhibit, since it was the first gallery I came to. It did not disappoint. The exhibit contains about 50 black-and-white photographs from the Associated Press Archives, including some of the most iconic, stirring images taken between

sense of injustice swelled. The war was a long time ago, and I was surprised that viewing these images brought so many feelings out in me, but the strongest thing I felt was the unfairness and injustice that so many people died or were wounded physically and mentally, all for the beliefs of mad men such as Hitler. Between the AP photo exhibit and the Charles Miller watercolor exhibit

there is a small chapel, a permanent part of the Wright Museum. I thought how fitting it is that the chapel, a place of reflection and rest, was sandwiched between two very powerful exhibits. The Miller exhibit is equally as stirring. A bit of background on Mr. Miller tells us his interesting story. He lived in Nashua, NH and always wanted to be an artist. Times were tough for most folks in the years before World War II, and Charles, like many young people, left school early (in his case, he quit school after the sixth grade) to help support the family. I find it very touching that although he worked in the Nashua cotton mills, he never lost his interest in art. His parents were not in support of him being an artist (who can blame them for trying to steer their son away from the financially uncertain life of an artist?). He quietly took art books out of the public library so he could study drawing and painting on his own. After working long hours

in the mills, he snuck his art books to the attic, where he studied the works of master artists and practiced his own techniques. Charles twice served his country: from 1925 to 1935 he was in the Army, and in 1942, when he was drafted into the Army and sent to the Pacific Theatre to fight. According to Michael Culver, executive director of the Wright Museum, who joined me to talk about the exhibit, Charles wasn’t a younger man when he fought in World War II. While many of his fellow soldiers were in their early 20s, Charles was in his 30s when he served in the Pacific. Each image is the work of a master draftsman; Michael Culver pointed out the perfect perspective in one watercolor, adding that such skill isn’t easy to master. However, Charles, untaught in art methods, handles • Wright Museum Continued on page 29

May 21, 2018 • Wright Museum Continued from page 28 perspective brilliantly. The colors in each image are vivid: we see the military green of the soldiers’ uniforms, the blue water that looks painterly, even in artwork that shows battle, and always there is Charles’s unique view of what he saw and experienced. It is utterly amazing to me that this soldier never put down his paintbrush, even with war raging around him. While one would assume he did many of the most intense battle scenes from memory after the fighting ended, Michael says Miller’s family told him that Charles was often sketching right during battle. (That is not to say that Charles was a bystander soldier; it is certain he did his part during skirmishes.) When Charles’s niece and her husband contacted the Wright Museum to say they had over 700 works of art done by their uncle, Culver was very excited. When he saw the work, he fell in love with the collection. “These works of art were stored under Charles’s bed for years. He eventually gave them to his sister for safekeeping, and thus, they have stayed in the family,” comments Culver. “His niece has kept the work in great condition. We have matted and framed around 200 pieces so far, and our goal is to get

funding to frame the entire collection.” He goes on to say, “This artwork by Mr. Miller is a national treasure. It is a unique view on war, and he gives you a sense of the soldier’s everyday life. You feel like you are right there with him; indeed, he puts himself in the pictures.” Charles was a quiet, modest man, and never saw himself as an artist, but rather said it was his hobby. Charles went back to the barracks after the soldiers’ evening meal, while the younger soldiers went into town for socializing. What did he do? He worked on his paintings. Most of the artwork has a written narrative within the image, explaining what was happening at the time, further adding to the artist’s first-hand view of the experiences in World War II. After returning from the war, Charles lived in Nashua and continued to work locally. He never married and lived a quiet life, as he had always done. He would show his family members his drawings and paintings, but he never pushed himself forward or bragged about his talents. I was stunned to learn of Charles’ personal story. I had assumed he was a talented illustrator with a big ad agency or a fine artist who exhibited all over the country. To learn his true story, that he never had an art exhibit or a big, splashy life, but rather stayed close to his roots and his family, is amazing.

No Ticks.

Somehow the two exhibits - the AP photos and the Miller work complement one another perfectly. Both take the viewer through the war years and you glimpse what people actually experienced. And both are intimate views of war and the fact that sometimes, if one looks hard enough, there are moments of beauty amid the rubble and conflict. I, for one, hope the Miller exhibit will go on to tour large museums all over the country and maybe other countries. I can only image what quiet, modest, yet very talented Private Charles Miller would say if he knew how many people were enjoying his artwork today. Probably, he would be surprised and shyly pleased that others could enjoy his work.

It is the plan to offer the exhibit to display at other museums. To learn about exhibit fees and to get further information, call the Wright Museum at 603-569-1212. Culver says the next exhibit at the Wright Museum will be called The Forgotten War: Korea 1950, Photographs by Max Desfor. The exhibit will be on view from June 24 to August 12. For a schedule of upcoming programs and happenings at the Wright Museum of World War II, visit www. wrightmuseum.org. The museum is located at 77 Center Street in Wolfeboro and is open May 1 to October 31, Mondays through Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm and Sundays from noon to 4 pm.

Great Waters Music Festival’s 2018 Season Begins! By Sarah Wright The 2018 concert series of the Great Waters Music Festival has officially launched, this year sponsored by Fidelity Investments, with new shows scheduled, as well as returning favorites. Founded in 1995, by Dr. Gerald Mack, GWMF is a non-profit organization dedicated to culturally enriching New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. We’re lucky to have such a resource in our area with varied performances by so many talented artists. Shows take place at the Kingswood Arts Center at 21 McManus Road in Wolfeboro, unless otherwise specified. Include the festival in your summer fun this year in the Lakes Region! On June 7, join Bill Staines for an intimate concert at the Barn at the Inn on Main, in Wolfeboro. Singing mostly his own songs, he has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today, performing nearly 200 concerts a year. Bill’s music is a slice of Americana, and many of his songs have appeared in grade school music books, church hymnals, and scouting campfire songbooks. It’s sure to be a magical night. Farewell Angelina will perform at the Barn at the Inn on Main, in Wolfeboro, on June 14. Named after a Bob Dylan song, Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group with four vocalists, dynamic songwriters, and multi-instrumentalists. Their blend of heart-stopping harmonies over double violins and guitars has earned soaring praise across the board. Farewell Angelina’s chemistry lives in watching each other shine, and most of all, creating moments every night with the Country Music fans they love so much. This is the band’s first performance in the area, so don’t miss it! Come as you are and enjoy light refreshments and a cash bar both before and during the show.

• Great Waters Continued from page 31 singing on July 24 at the Saint Katherine Drexel Parish in Alton. Chanticleer is known around the world as an “orchestra of voices” for its seamless blend of 12 male voices ranging from countertenor to bass, and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to new music. Purchase your ticket today to catch them on tour this summer.

Great Waters Music Festival will hold their annual fundraiser concert this year at 6:30 pm on July 26 at the Barn at the Inn on Main in Wolfeboro. Enjoy a summer evening garden party and musical entertainment by Broadway singer and actress Rebecca Robbins, accompanied by Dr. Chris Shepard. All of this, plus an exclusive dinner and cash bar await you at the event. In addition, Directors Emeritae Barbara Olcott and Barbara Lob-

dell will receive a special recognition! Come dressed for a casual evening out, and join friends, neighbors, and family in this exceptional annual event. The Doo Wop Project is back by popular demand on August 10! This group traces the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sounds of five guys singing on a street corner to the biggest hits of today. Former and current stars of Broadway’s Jersey Boys and Motown the Musical perform some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history. You’ll be dancing in your seat! Strains of “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” will fill the air on August 17 when Adrienne Danrich makes a return to Wolfeboro with her eclectic recital, My Favorite Things. All of the songs contained in the program mean a great deal to her. She will share personal anecdotes about how the songs have come to be a part of her repertoire as she performs some familiar and maybe not-so-familiar songs with her beautiful soprano voice. Included will be songs from the American Songbook, Broadway, Opera, and traditional spirituals. She will be accompanied by pianist Djordje Nesic. Come and enjoy Danrich’s beautiful

voice and delightful stories. On August 24, The Capital Steps will bring their humor to Wolfeboro. After the last election season, we could all use some laughs; listen to current and former Congressional staffers as they set political satire to music, performing creative song parodies and skits. In business since 1981, they have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS. They will certainly put the “mock” in democracy! Tickets and season passes are now available.

A Celebration of Traditional Crafts at Canterbury Shaker Village June 2 & 3 Canterbury woodworkers David Emerson, David Lamb, and David Ford share more than a first name. All three are traditional woodworkers with close ties to Canterbury Shaker Village. They’ve helped Shaker Village plan a new event, Traditional Craft Days, which will showcase the talents and sell the work of over 50 traditional craftspeople and musicians. The event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3, from 10 am to 4 pm each day. Admission is free with Village admission. Guided tours of the Village will be offered at 11 am and 2 pm each day, and other buildings are open on a self-guided basis. Watch a blacksmith at his forge, a sawyer milling logs into boards, and a driver moving loads with an ox team. See demonstrations of horse pulling, stone wall building, timber-framing, furniture making, and leather work. The textile arts will be represented with live llamas to illustrate fiber origins and demonstrations of how to spin and weave fibers into cloth. Shaker Village artisans will also be making oval boxes and booms and operating a historic letterpress printing press. For a complete list of participants, see www. shakers.org. Wood from one of the Village’s oldest maples, which split in a recent storm, will be milled at Traditional Craft Days and then offered for sale for projects at home. “Beyond just demonstrating a craft, one of the goals of this weekend is to encourage people to learn these crafts.

We want our demonstrators to share their knowledge and help people find a way to learn that works for them,” said David Emerson. He offers classes at his Old Ways Traditions studio just north of the Village. David Lamb stresses the importance of apprenticeships and mentoring in learning a craft, noting how through the mentoring system, many Shaker Villages developed and perpetuated certain stylistic features of woodwork and furniture that were unique to each village. David Ford, a member of the Timber Framers Guild, is the facilities manager

at Canterbury Shaker Village and helps preserve the 25 original Shaker buildings there. He says, “The value of saving historic structures and artifacts is, in part, for the evidence they provide about how things were constructed or made.” Local musicians will play throughout the weekend. On Saturday the line-up includes Badger’s Drift, Doug Hazard, and New Found Grass. On Sunday, The Fiddling Thomsons and Entangled Strings will perform. Village demonstrator Dick Bennett leads a “Shaker Chair in a Box” workshop on Saturday that teaches

participants to make their own Shaker chair, and Kevin Fife of Twin Elms Landscape will offer “Dry Laid Stone Wall Building” on both Saturday and Sunday. There is an extra fee for these programs. Fife has years of experience repairing and building stonewalls, including many walls at the Village. For more information and to register for these workshops, visit: http://www. shakers.org/workshops-events/shaker-inspired-workshops/. Food will be offered throughout the weekend. Local vendors Somerset Grille will bring their food truck, and Arnie’s will be on hand to sell ice cream. The Village’s own Café is stocked with sandwiches and soups from the Concord Food Co-op and pastries from Crust & Crumb bakery. This event is generously sponsored by Enterprise Car Rentals. Canterbury Shaker Village is a 501©3 non-profit dedicated to preserving the 200-year Shaker legacy and providing a place for learning, reflection, and renewal of the human spirit. A National Historic Landmark, the site includes 25 restored and four reconstructed Shaker buildings, and 694 acres under permanent conservation easement. The Museum Store features unique gifts and wares handmade by regional artisans. Canterbury Shaker Village is located at 288 Shaker Road in Canterbury, New Hampshire.

Getting Ready for Summer Golfing and the Benefits of the Sport By Rosalie Triolo Did you know the game of golf originated in Scotland? Before going into the preparation of getting ready for the summer golf season, here is a tiny bit of history about the origin of the game. Golf has been around for many centuries. Its ancient origins, although a little hazy, were traced back to the Roman game of Paganica. Considered the forerunner to the modern-day game of golf, it was played with a bent stick used to hit a ball stuffed with feathers. Thought by some to be a theory, the modern game of golf, originated in the 15th century, the High Middle Ages, in Scotland. The first golf course and clubs were established in Scotland, as well as the first written rules, and the 18-hole course. (Paganica is a small hillside town in the southern region of Italy. Interestingly, Paganica is also the name of a golf course in Oconomowac, Wisconsin.) Golf is a sport which provides the golfer, whether beginner or skilled player, with a block of uninterrupted time outdoors. Health, social and professional benefits are enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. In addition to having fun, golf is considered a low impact “holistic” sport offering a wide range of health

benefits. To name just a few of those benefits: physical fitness, weight loss, mental well-being, exercise and stress and anxiety reduction. The social benefits derived from this sport are equally as important. It allows you the time to spend interacting with people of all ages. Take the family golfing; it will help bridge the gap between generations and spark an interest in your child to play golf for his or her own enjoyment. Golf is a great way to get together with old friends, to meet new friends, and to network

professionally. According to an article in Golf Digest, Get Your Game Ready for the Season, there are several things you can do to get yourself ready for the new season. Among them are: Regain your touch (chipping and pitching); Focus on the fundamentals; Don’t fear the sand; Practice; Track your stats (recording your strengths and weaknesses); Buy a new pair of shoes or replace the cleats on your current pair; Restock your bag, and make sure the grips on your clubs are clean. Most important: Exercise. (Did you know taking 10,000 steps a day is the equivalent of 18 holes or walking five miles?) One of retired dental hygienist Laura Spellman’s favorite hobbies is golf. Laura has enjoyed playing golf for many years and has a regimen she follows throughout the year, whether it be here in New Hampshire or in Florida during the winter months. “Very important to exercise regularly,” advises Laura. She walks outdoors as much as possible when not golfing. She says, “Clothes are a big part of my golf experience. Each year I buy new tops, skirts and socks, and

make sure I have a large supply of golf balls and tees.” Because they wear out quickly, Laura buys a new golf glove each year. She checks her golf shoes to make sure they are in good shape and most importantly are still comfortable. Laura is emphatic about going to the driving range as much as possible to practice swinging and hitting golf balls. Making sure her golf clubs are in good condition, she determines if any need to be regripped. If so, she will schedule to have them done at the golf club pro-shop. You glean from talking with her about golf that Laura thoroughly enjoys the game. Especially when she remarks, “Getting out on the golf course with my friends is so much fun. I love playing golf with them before the leagues I belong to begin, which I also enjoy.” Bill Regan, formerly of Wolfeboro, now living in Naples, Florida has his own regimen. “For a player, it is straight forward. Make sure your equipment and shoes are in good condition. Generally, this is all done when you store your equipment in the fall, but you will want to do a re-check in spring. As soon as weather permits, go to a range and hit some balls. A lot of players will go to the southern part of New Hampshire or along the coast where spring arrives a bit sooner than in the Wolfeboro area. Other than that, just get out as soon as you can.” What does PGA Golf Professional, Paul Tessier, Manager of the Golf Program at Bald Peak Colony Club, in Melvin Village do to get ready for the golf season? Quite a lot! For the proshop, he prepares a buying plan. Looks at the numbers from last year using a point-of-sale system. What are the trends based on what has been sold?

May 21, 2018 • Golf Continued from page 34 Paul has a busy and an intensive four days, 8:30 am to 6 pm, viewing what the many companies have to offer in golf shoes, balls, clubs, gifts and clothing. At night, he makes appointments with the various companies to determine who has the best products, prices, terms and service. A very important part of planning for the season also involves the hiring of employees. Applicants are interviewed in Florida and determinations are made based on experience and to see how well they will fit into the program. Applicants are then made an offer. If accepted, the newly hired employees begin work on May 20 and are on staff until October. Many applicants are hired from Ireland and England on an H-2b Visa. (According to the United States Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division (WHD), “The H-2b Visa nonimmigrant program permits employers to temporarily hire nonimmigrants to perform nonagricultural labor or services in the United States. The employment must be of a temporary nature for a limited period of time such as a one-time occurrence, seasonal need, peak load need or intermittent need.”) Housing at Bald Peak is a huge benefit for both the employee and employer. Also in preparation for the season, Paul attends PGA Continuing Education Courses all winter both in Florida and in New England. Planning for golf tournaments throughout the year, Paul reviews

with the Golf Chairman the Member Tournaments which are five-a-week, and club member events – Lady’s Days on Wednesdays and Twilight Fridays from 9 to 18 Holes. Working with the administrative staff, he plans a calendar of events which he reviews with the Golf Committee. If approved by the committee, the administrative staff then sends out membership invitations. In his own words, Paul said, “I want this to be a great memory for the members. So, I try not to make mistakes.” On a daily basis during the golfing season, Paul works closely with the Superintendent of Grounds Maintenance. He goes out to look at the course, determining what areas need work and explains that to the grounds crew. Paul and the Superintendent, Todd Pollini, must have an open line of communication to assure the members’ needs are met. Paul remarked that “Bald Peak is always in outstanding condition and that is a tribute to the incredible grounds crew.” Paul and his wife, Phyllis, have three sons. Their second son played golf in high school and throughout college. On their free time, the family gets together for some entertaining golf competition. According to an article on PGA.com published March 24, 2017, written by Brandi Jackson on Youth Golf, there are 12 habits of successful junior golfers: Be coachable; Set goals; Learn from others; Use your resources; Plan and prepare; Stay positive; Take ownership; Take initiative; Don’t make excuses; Be appreciative; Ask questions; and Ask for help.

Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants and Fungi Workshop The Quincy Bog Natural Area in Rumney has scheduled a program titled Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants and Fungi Workshop, presented by Rick Van der Poll, on Sunday, June 3 from 9 am to 1 pm at Quincy Bog Natural Area Nature Center. Sign up for this short seminar, which is back by popular demand, focusing on what is readily available for food and herbal medicine in the central New Hampshire area. A colorful slide show will introduce participants to the common plants and mushrooms that have been used for centuries by Europeans and Natives alike. Reference works will be reviewed and a special soup for the day will be prepared for optional sampling. This will be followed by a short, easy hike around Quincy Bog in search of what is “out” and identifiable. Workshop participants may find some early mushrooms to pick and prepare. In past years, Rick has led the popular Fabulous Fungi Workshop at the Bog. Three years ago, when “Fab Fungi” participants expressed interest in exploring the world of edible and medicinal plants, it was decided to offer this workshop as part of Quincy Bog’s program series. Dr. Rick Van de Poll is the principal of Ecosystem Management Consultants (EMC) of Sandwich, NH. Beginning in the mid-1980s, his company was one of the first to perform natural resource inventories for the public and private sector of New England. With an

emphasis on biodiversity conservation, Dr. Van de Poll has included inventories of all species of flora and fauna on over 300,000 acres of land in every corner of the state. He has recorded over 1,500 fungi and 2,100 species of plants in New Hampshire, and has eaten and/ or used hundreds of species for food or medicine. As a lecturer, Dr. Van de Poll has presented at dozens of seminars and conferences as an invited guest and keynote speaker. He serves on the NH Rare Plant Task Force, and is responsible for a number of rare plant records in northern New England. He co-founded the Monadnock Mushroom Club in 1988, and founded the local Sandwich Area Mushroom (SAM) Club in 2001. The workshop is limited to 20 people. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring drinking water and bug spray. Baskets and 10x handlenses are encouraged. Please bring your favorite reference guides as well. Pre-registration required, confirmed upon payment of a $20.00 per person fee. Contact Betty Jo Taffe at bjtaffe@ gmail.com or call 603-786-2553. Checks are payable to Quincy Bog Natural Area – Workshop, and mailed to Quincy Bog Natural Area, PO Box 90, Rumney, NH 03266. Please include your email address to confirm your registration upon receipt of your check.

Savor the sweet harmonies of Crosby, Stills, and Nash as well as the raging guitar duels between Stills and Young. Feel the high voltage snap of Crazy Horse, as well as the plaintive beauty of “Heart of Gold.” Based in the Boston area, Rust Never Sleeps pays tribute to Neil Young and his music the best way they know how... with integrity.

Ken Gibson, has an amazing guitar tone on his vintage Fender Amplifiers and both Gretsch and Gibson guitars. The other five members of the band are tip-top pros as well: Chuck Nemitz on guitar, Mike Garron on bass, Jeremy Esposito on drums, Rob Hamilton on pedal steel guitar and keyboards, and vocalist Reena Valley. While some groups in the tributeband genre are content with a notefor-note replication of the original recordings, a Rust Never Sleeps show is infused with the passion and truth that comes from musicians using their own unique, creative energy to present great songs. The Franklin Opera House is located within Franklin City Hall at 316 Central Street, with plenty of free parking. For more information on the event, reservations and tickets, visit www.

Castle in the CloudsNamed an Editor’s Pick by Yankee Magazine Yankee Magazine has named Castle in the Clouds a 2018 Editor’s Pick for Lake Winnipesaukee Places to Play. This is the fourth time the Castle has been singled out by the magazine. The historic New Hampshire landmark has been open weekends only since May 12; beginning on Memorial Day, the Castle will be open daily through October 21. In addition to the Castle tours, visitors can take advantage of all there is to do throughout the estate, including enjoying the lake and mountain views, having lunch in the Carriage House Restaurant, and embarking

on a hike or horseback ride through the mountains. Restoration efforts at the historic estate continue, and the extensive

process that the Castle Preservation Society has been engaged in since taking over management of the estate in 2006 takes center stage for visitors this season. A new exhibit featuring some of the stories of the restoration has been installed in the Carriage House Gallery. “Lucknow Revealed: Research, Restoration & Mystery at Castle in the Clouds” invites guests to learn how the Castle in the Clouds restoration team is peeling back the layers of the past to reveal the secrets of the Castle’s design and construction, and how the special place is being preserved for generations to come. The interactive exhibit features objects documenting architectural and interior design at the Castle, historic photographs of the building’s construction, restoration project

highlights, and also invites visitors to help solve some of the Castle’s research mysteries. The exhibit may be viewed without purchasing a tour ticket; however, exhibit curator Michelle Landry says she hopes the exhibit inspires people to want to take a tour and see the restoration work first-hand. In addition to the exhibit, visitors to the Castle will have a second opportunity to engage with the restoration process and results this summer. Beginning in July, guided tours of the Castle basement will be offered daily. Guests who want to learn more about how the Castle was constructed and details of the state-of-the-art mechanical systems that were installed in 1914 can join a Castle docent for small group tours. Stories of the hard-working domestic staff that kept the estate running during the 1910s and 1920s will also be featured. More details about basement tours will be shared publicly as the summer progresses. Castle in the Clouds is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, whose mission is to preserve, restore, and share the historic Lucknow Estate. Each visit supports the mission and helps to ensure the enjoyment and enrichment of generations to come. For more information call 603-4765900 or visit castleintheclouds.org.

Wright Museum presents “Propaganda Posters of the First World War” To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, one of the most important events of the 20th century, the Wright Museum is hosting a special exhibition of World War I propaganda posters. “The exhibit features 17 original WWI posters that are in remarkable condition, especially considering they are all at least 100 years old,” said the museum’s assistant curator, Justin Gamache. The exhibit also features some unique artifacts from both the home front and war front that help portray what life was like during the period. As but one example, Gamache cited a soldier in a WWI uniform wearing a typical gas mask synonymous with World War I that “greets” visitors at the start of the exhibit. Some other artifacts of note include a trench periscope used for scouting enemy positions across no-man’s land

and some fascinating trench-art shell casings. “These casings were engraved by soldiers in the trenches to pass time and serve as a remembrance of their service,” Gamache said. While the Wright Museum’s permanent collection focuses exclusively on WWII, its mission includes educating visitors about other seminal events that shaped American history. The exhibit, “Propaganda Posters of the First World War,” will be on display throughout the season, ending on October 31. The posters are on loan from the Collection of Brewster Ely with additional various artifacts on loan from the Collection of Randy Cook. “We are so grateful for these loans,” added Gamache. “This exhibit really is very exciting and shows a part of war that is often not thought about.” The Wright Museum of World War II is located at 77 Center Street in

It’s DIPJAR Time -25th anniversary celebration During the month of May, Trustworthy Hardware on Union Avenue in Laconia is hosting the DIPJAR, which is traveling around the area in 2018 as part of the 25th anniversary celebration of Lakes Region Community Developers (LRCD).  

The DIPJAR accepts $1 credit card donations to support LRCD’s work to provide healthy homes for working families. LRCD offers 365 affordable apartments that are safe, with good air quality, and are energy-efficient. “Kids who live in healthy homes do

better in school because they don’t get sick as often. Parents who live in healthy homes don’t have to take as much time off from work to care for a sick child. Families who live in healthy homes don’t spend 35 percent of their monthly income on high utility bills, so they have enough money for food and transportation. Healthy homes are the foundation of a healthy community,” said Carmen Lorentz, LRCD Executive Director. Trustworthy is participating in LRCD’s 25th anniversary celebration by hosting the DIPJAR. Trustworthy started 2018 off with a campaign called

“GO A BIT FURTHER” to remind people to take that extra step to help someone else in your community. Hosting the DIPJAR is one way Trustworthy can GO A BIT FURTHER; they hope customers will respond by making a donation to help LRCD provide healthy homes for the region’s workforce. Last year, LRCD residents worked for 125 different local businesses. Trustworthy is located at 1084 Union Avenue in Laconia. For more information about LRCD’s 25th anniversary, visit LRCommunityDevelopers.org.

“INSIDE / OUT: The Elusiveness of Dreams” Sandwich Artist CC White will open the season at the Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery on Saturday, June 2 with an exhibit that explores her dreams. Dreams are universal. Does there exist a person who has never had a dream? How many of us can make sense of our dreams? White’s exhibit touches all of us as we remember flying without a plane, frantically packing bags to catch a train, or realizing that we are only half dressed in the supermarket!

Stop by for the opening reception from 5 to 7 pm on June 2. White will talk about her dreams and her drawings at 6 pm. For over 30 years, White has been recording her dreams and images in a notebook she keeps beside her bed. Much of the work in the exhibit is taken directly from these books and reflects her immediate reaction to the specific dream. While the meanings remain elusive, White hopes viewers
