Black bears are active once again, so join us on June 6th at 6:00 PM at the Gilmanton Year-Round Library for a presentation on the habits of black bears. NH Fish and Game will share information about these local inhabitants. The library was awarded a grant from the NH Fish and Game for two free programs, one on black bears and a second discussion on bobcats in August.



The Gilmanton Education Association is pleased to donate $100.00 to the Gilmanton Supplemental Assistance, Inc. and 19 cans of food to the Gilmanton Food Pantry. The Association sponsored a Mother’s Night Out on May 10th from 5 to 9. A number of families took advantage of the babysitting provided by teachers to enjoy an evening out. Each family made a monetary donation and food items for the local food pantry.

Fairytales & Folktales At Gilmanton Corner Library In June


A fairytale is a kind of folktale or fable. In these stories we meet witches and queens, giants and elves, princes, dragons, talking animals, ogres and sometimes fairies. Marvelous and magical things happen to characters in fairytales. Objects can be enchanted - mirrors that talk, pumpkins becomes carriages and a lamp may be home to a genie.


When these stories were studied something amazing was discovered. In countries as distant as Africa, China, Russia and India similar fairytales were told. Reading a fairytale or folktale provides a glimpse into world cultures, allowing the reader to gain insight into the values and customs of a society who produced the particular oral tale.


In Laconia, Bhutanese immigrant Hari Tiwari shared his wonderful folktale “The Story of a Pumpkin” with the community. Please enjoy this book and other fairytales, folktales and DVDs at the Gilmanton Corner Library in June.


The library is also having “Broadway DVDs” month with; “Mamma Mia,” “Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Cats,” and “Chicago” also Academy Award film “Lincoln” with Daniel Day-Lewis.


Please phone to place a request or reserve a book or DVD at 267-6200, Mondays and Thursdays 2 - 8, Wednesdays and Fridays 2 - 6, and Tuesdays 2 - 4.

GCC Food Pantry And Thrift Shop News


We have begun our Memorial Day Sale which is 50% Off any item with a Blue or Red barb. The sale began on Wednesday, May 22nd and runs to Wednesday, June 5th. Come on in and check out our great selection of summer clothing for the entire family.  We are adding new items everyday and with 50% off Red and Blue barbs, you can’t beat the prices for some fabulous clothing. 


We want to remind everyone that the sales from the Thrift Shop help to support the Food Pantry and it programs. As you continue to clean out your clothing items and wearable accessories, we ask you to avoid those big yellow boxes (especially the one at the dump) and bring your unwanted and outgrown clothing to the GCC Thrift shop. If you are unable to bring your items to the shop in the Iron Works you can either leave it in the entryway of the Gilmanton Community Church in the corners or call Jane Sisti at 364-7437 for pick-up.  If you do leave clothing at the church, please mark the bags or boxes clearly for the Thrift Shop. We thank you for your donations.


Thank you to everyone who put out food items for the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive that the USPS held on May 11th. We received about 550 lbs. of food and household items from the offices in Gilmanton Iron Works and in Gilmanton.


The GCC Food Pantry committee is continuing to prepare the pantry gardens.  We are still in need of black mulch, cinder block for another bed, and cucumber and green pepper plants for the garden. We are also looking for volunteers to help do planting and to tend the gardens during the growing season. If you have items to donate or would like to volunteer please call Jane Sisti at 364-7437.


As always, if you wish to make a donation of food or clothing to the GCC Food Pantry and Thrift Shop, we ask that you bring it to the shop during our business hours. Food can also be left in one of the collection boxes located at the Academy Building, the Gilmanton School or the Year Round Library.  Checks can be mailed to us at PO Box 6, Gilmanton Iron Works, 03837. We are located on Route 140 in Gilmanton Iron Works, across from the Iron Works Market.  We are open on Monday 1pm – 5pm, Wednesday 3pm – 7pm, and Saturday 10am – 2pm.  Parking is located in the Gilmanton Community Church parking lot just west of the shop.


We thank you for your continued support of the Food Pantry and all of its programs.

The Lower Gilmanton First Baptist Church is having their Annual Work Bee on Saturday, June 8, 2013 starting at 9:00 AM.  Depending on the weather, general outside or inside work are the projects being considered such as scraping and painting the back of the church or painting pew trim or the church floor.

Please bring paint brushes and trays and work up an appetite.  Many hands will make light work.  Also bring a favorite dish to share at lunchtime with friends.


Our Annual Meeting will be reconvened during the day to discuss any issues needing to be considered, such as the summer church services’ schedule.
