Josiah Bartlett Center - Carl Cameron Confirmed for JBC Dinner!

Carl Cameron Confirmed for JBC Dinner!
July 23, 2014
Hi everyone. Great news: Carl Cameron has confirmed as speaker for our annual Libertas Dinner. We’re very excited. Those of you who know “Campaign Carl” – Fox News chief political correspondent and former political director of WMUR-TV – know how great it will be to have him helping Gov. Steve Merrill honor Joe McQuaid for us.

I can’t tell you how excited we are about this event which may be our biggest dinner ever. It is one heck of a program to have and I’m pleased at how it has come together. I knew it would be great when we decided to honor Joe but it’s turned out even better. I would be remiss, though, if I didn’t try and coax you into attending.

We have room and you will enjoy it greatly. Attached to this email is the information on the dinner and you can click here to reserve a seat. I hope to see Wednesday

AFP - These guys will be there -- will you?

Josiah Bartlett Center - Save the Date! 4th Annual Libertas Dinner, July 23 

Save the Date!  Fourth Annual Libertas Dinner 
July 23, 2014
Dear Friends,

I know you’re probably one of the folks who told me that our Libertas Dinner is the best networking they event they go to all year and a fun evening to boot.  Well, I have good news! Not only are we having another dinner, but this year it is being held even earlier in the year, in July, so less waiting, more schmoozing. What's more, we are extending everyone's favorite part - the predinner reception - so you'll have more time to mingle and chat before our always enthralling main event. 

Speaking of the main event, we’ve got a humdinger planned for you. On July 23 we are honoring Joseph McQuaid, esteemed publisher, in a celebration of his noteworthy career, the New Hampshire Union Leader, and indeed, the newspaper industry itself. I’m sure you know by now that I have a special soft spot for the newspaper industry and its extraordinary value to informed decision making. You won't want to miss it, so be sure to note July 23 on your calendar, phone, or tablet now!

Studio 550 - New Hampshire High Schools compete for the title of Clay Champion, May 17th 

Studio 550 hosts the first ever “Clay Challenge” in NH

Manchester, NH – On the morning of May 17th, five teams, from four New Hampshire high schools, will compete for the title of “Clay Champions” at Studio 550. The competition will be composed of a series of feats of clay, such as centering on the potter's wheel without using your hands, throwing the tallest or smallest pot in a set time or with a set amount of clay, and other such challenges. Some events will be individual competitions and others will be team challenges; others will be strategy based, and other will be skill based. The event runs from 9am-12pm.

The participating schools will be from Manchester’s own Memorial and Central High Schools, as well as traveling teams from Goffstown and ConVal in Peterborough. ConVal is sending two teams. Each team is composed of 3-5 students, and the judges for the event will be NH potters.

Lori Sweeney of Memorial High School says, “This event has really made the students excited about pottery. The students have been coming in after school to practice, and some have stepped up to the plate to organize and rally the team. It’s really nice to see”

Community members are invited to visit and view the event, but viewing space is limited. There is no cost to view, but donations will be accepted to keep the event growing. There will be light refreshments and tea available for sale for visitors.

“The idea of a Clay Challenge really fits the mission behind Studio 550, ‘Build a dynamic arts-centered community by enriching lives with unique art experiences and giving people an excuse to play.’ The Clay Challenge is a community building event that is all about playing. We’re looking forward to see how this event grows in the future.” says event organizer, Monica Leap.
