Barnstead Town Hall Indian Summer Concert
Don’t miss the performance of Don Smith and
the Smith Brothers this coming weekend at the September 24th “Barnstead
Town Hall Indian Summer Concert.”
Don and his brothers have been on the music scene in the New England
area since the early 60’s and bring a blend of great songs with them and
unique connection as a band of performing bothers. Don will begin
the evening with an intimate one-hour session playing his guitar solo
and singing an eclectic mix of folk, rock, and country music from the
60’s, 70’s and 80’s and a few original tunes. His music is touching,
humorous, thoughtful and fun.
His son Donnie Smith and brothers Dave and
Tony will join him on guitar drums and bass after an intermission of
coffee and desserts to finish off the night.
Doors will open at 6:00 for a full “SOB”
dinner – Stew on a Biscuit – of chicken, ham and beef stew and along
with Scottish meat and potato dish. If you would like to attend, but
cannot drive in the dark or need transportation, arrangements for a pick
up and drop off can be made by calling Chris Bonoli at 603-340-1468.

To the Residents of Barnstead:
I am sure that most of you are not aware that
on the New Hampshire Fallen Firefighter Memorial at 98 Smokey Bear Blvd.
in Concord, NH, there are the names of three Barnstead firefighters.
My family and I have attended the annual Memorial Service nearly every
year since the memorial was finished in 2006. Family members from
as far away as North Carolina and England have assisted in laying a
carnation on the names of Barnstead’s fallen during the ceremony.
My husband is on duty at the fire station on September 24, so he will
not be able to serve at the Academy this year. It would be nice to
see Barnstead residents or Fire Department members there at the service
at noon to remember the sacrifice of: Stephen Jones, Kenneth Smith and
