Community Supports Benefit Dinner


A benefit dinner is being held on Saturday, November 19, 2016 to raise funds for a local family during a very difficult and financially draining time.  Local businesses, crafters and community members are offering significant support to help make the Benefit Dinner a huge success.  The dinner will be held at the Barnstead Parade Fire Station from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the 19th of November. 


Eric Robertson, a long-time resident of Barnstead, has been battling cancer for quite some time now and his medical bills have accumulated significantly.     Eric and his wife, Wendy, have raised their two children in the town of Barnstead and they have been active in community and school events with their children.  Eric has worked in area towns for many years as a juvenile probation/parole and law enforcement officer.


There has been a tremendous offering of support to help the Robertson family.  Duane Farms is donating all the apples to make the apple crisp dessert that will be served at the dinner.  A local family is donating the hot dogs and rolls  that will serve as the centerpiece of the buffet dinner.  Two local families will provide home-made beans for the dinner.


A silent auction is planned and area businesses and crafters are offering generous donations for the auction.  Fallon Photography has donated a $250.00 family photo session, OSG Paintball has donated ten admissions with rentals to their paintball course.  A local crafter has donated a beautiful hand-weaved woven basket.  More donations are being received daily for the silent auction.   


Please join us at the Parade Fire Station on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet to support raising funds for this worthy cause.  The cost is your generous donation. 



Oscar Foss Memorial Library News

Rally ‘Round the Flag!


The Oscar Foss Memorial Library and the Barnstead Historical Society have received a grant from New Hampshire Humanities to present “Rally ‘Round the Flag: The American Civil War Through Folk Song”. Woody Pringle and Marek Bennett present an overview of the American Civil War through the lens of period music. Audience members participate and sing along as the presenters explore lyrics, documents, and visual images from sources such as the Library of Congress. Through camp songs, parlor music, hymns, battlefield rallying cries, and fiddle tunes, Pringle and Bennett examine the folksong as a means to enact living history, share perspectives, influence public perceptions of events, and simultaneously fuse and conserve cultures in times of change. Showcasing numerous instruments, the presenters challenge participants to find new connections between song, art, and politics in American history. This event will be held at the Barnstead Town Hall on November 18th at 7pm and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Oscar Foss Memorial library.
