Writers’ Night Out


It’s “Writers’ Night Out” at the Chesley Memorial Library on Thursday, March 24, 7:00-8:30 p.m.  Join acclaimed local authors Rebecca Rule (from Northwood) and James Patrick Kelly (from Nottingham) in an informal gathering to gain writing inspiration.  Discuss what you are working on, what you are reading, where you are submitting your work, or anything that captures you!  The program is co-sponsored by the Chesley Memorial Library and the Blaisdell Memorial Library.



Sit ‘N’ Sew


Learn paper-piecing the Carol Doak way!  Local resident Pam Williams and fellow seamstress from Lyndeborough, Carol Wright, will be at the Chesley Memorial Library on Thursday, March 24, from 12:00-3:00 p.m. to teach you how to paper-piece the easy way, using Carol Doak’s patented method.


Using this method, you can easily create quilt blocks which can then be joined together to create beautiful quilts or smaller projects such as wall hangings, trivets, tote bags, coasters, and more. The advantage to using Carol’s method is that points are more easily attained, a tricky undertaking in the more traditional way of piecing.


The library has some Carol Doak books available to check out and Pam will bring some of her other books for you to review. Pam and Carol will demonstrate with the “Introduction to Paper Piecing Pattern” which is available for free on Carol Doak’s website ( and is the only one allowed to use for teaching purposes.


If you own a Carol Doak book, please feel free to print your own foundations on newsprint (or other thin paper) and bring them in, along with your choice of fabrics if you would like to create another block with your own fabrics.


Two extra sewing machines will be available for people’s use and all materials will be provided. No fee. Ages 10 and up.



NACC Holds Special Services for Easter


The Northwood Advent Christian Church invites all to their Easter weekend programs to celebrate and reflect on the great significance of the events that took place on that first Easter weekend! The church is located at 113 School St, (rt. 107) Northwood.


The weekend starts with a Maundy Thursday service Thursday night at 7:00pm with a meditation and communion reflecting on the last night Jesus shared with his disciples before his crucifixion.


Easter day starts with a sunrise service at 6:45 outside, weather permitting, followed by breakfast and fellowship. At 10 o’clock, a special Easter worship service of hymns, special music, and message on the Hope of Easter! Plan now to come and hear the message of hope for our world today.



Letter To The Editor

Thought Experiment


Albert Einstein was known for his “thought experiments” where he used his imagination and intuition to gain insight into the nature of things. Let’s try one.


Imagine that you have two kids who are learning to play baseball. There is a summer camp that they can attend that has a morning session devoted to learning the rules of the game and what to do in situations that arise. For example, the pitcher covering first base on a ground ball to the left of first base. The afternoon session is spent on playing and practicing what’s been learned.


Unfortunately for your kids, you can only afford 1-1/2 sessions, so both go in the morning, but only one stays on for the afternoon. At the end of two weeks, who is the better ball player? And who likes the game better? And who has made more friends?


You don’t need to be genius to figure this out.


Interestingly, the town of Exeter has handled kindergarten in just this way for several years. Because of space constraints, they have had both half- and full-day programs. The benefits of the latter have led the voters this year to support a $5.4 million addition to their middle school to house full-day K for all.


Fortunately, Northwood School has the space available to accommodate a full-day program. And I hope our newly constituted School Board will move in that direction for 2017.


Next time, more on what’s been called “the best research yet on the effects of full-day kindergarten.” Imagine that!
