Kligerman will be Sponsored by North American Power for Upcoming NHMS Nationwide Race  

Concord, N.H. (July 9, 2013) - NASCAR Nationwide series driver Parker Kligerman will be racing for a worthy cause at the upcoming NASCAR Nationwide Series CNBC Prime’s “The Profit” 200 taking place at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 13.  Kligerman’s sponsor, North American Power, will donate $1,000 for every lap lead - up to ten laps - to the Speedway Children's Charities with the funding directed toward CHaD, Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth and David’s House

“I recently had the opportunity to tour CHaD’s incredible facility and meet some of the families benefitting from their great work,” said Kligerman.  “I will be doing my best behind the wheel of the #77 North American Power Toyota on Saturday to raise as much money as possible to support their mission.”  

“Parker is a great driver and we’re excited to sponsor him, as well as support the local community,” said Greg Breitbart, Chief Marketing Officer at North American Power.  “Our company was founded on the belief of giving back to the communities we serve.  Partnering with Parker is allowing us to increase giving in New Hampshire while we enjoy the sport of racing with fans and customers.”  

This Friday, July 12, Speedway Children’s Charities have selected a special family to participate in “Hot Laps,” at NHMS, where Parker will take them around the track in the “Pace Car,” and give them a taste of what it’s like to be a real NASCAR driver.  “We are thrilled to be able to provide this “Once in a Lifetime” experience to a family.  We hope to put big smiles on their faces and help them forget about their day-to-day struggles,” said Cheryl LaPrade of Speedway Children’s Charities.

For those who want to meet Parker in person, he will be at NHMS signing autographs at North American Power’s booth on Friday from 4:30-5:00 and Sunday from 10:00-12:00.

Last Winter Farmers' Market of the Season!

Last Winter Farmers' Market of the Season!

You are invited to the final winter farmers' market of the season on Saturday, April 13th at Exeter High School, Exeter, NH from 10am-2pm. As another season of winter farmers' markets wraps up, it’s a good time to reflect on the importance of eating local; as the O Magazine once said, “If you want to change the world, change what you eat.” Choose any of the delicious locally grown and produced foods below for a springtime treat!

Spring dug parsnips have been underground all winter turning their starches into sugars, and are dug as soon as the soil thaws in the spring. During the winter freeze, their starches turn to sugars as a means of the plant protecting itself. The result is tender, sweet parsnips that are a unique treat to this time of year. Try these recipes.

Eggs are in abundance, with chickens laying very productively during the spring. Fresh eggs last for five weeks in the refrigerator, so it’s time to stock up! Eggs are nutritious and switching to local eggs makes a positive impact on our environment. Here are some great recipe ideas for eggs for dinner.

Greens are flourishing in the increasing day length. From familiar greens like salad mix, spinach, Swiss chard, kale, and beet greens to interesting varieties of Asian greens, these delicious greens are always a highlight of the markets.

SNAP/EBT benefits are welcomed at the market, and customers can also use Debit cards. 

Consumers can continue to participate in the local food economy by attending the summer farmers’ markets. There are markets everywhere from Atkinson to York, every day of the week, and many start in May! Check the Seacoast Eat Local website for a complete calendar listing.

The April 13th market is generously underwritten by Exeter Hospital, and supported by Valicenti Organico, Chappell Tractor, and Farm Credit East. Seacoast Eat Local connects people with sources of locally grown foods and advocates eating locally for the health of our environment, community, culture and economy.  Through advocacy, organizing and education, they work toward a sustainable local food system that meets the needs of both producers and consumers.  They organize winter farmers’ markets, produce Seacoast Harvest, sponsor workshops and events, and provide information through their email newsletter, blog, and website, www.seacoasteatlocal.org.
