. April 23: New Hampshire Towns and the Civil War, Keene, NH. This lecture focuses on the home front, not the fighting. Professor Daniell will describe both formal town actions and non-governmental community responses. Specific topics include rewarding men who enlisted; helping citizens avoid military service; ostracizing war opponents; organizing aid societies; celebrating military victories; and post war memorialization. Whenever possible Professor Daniell will illustrate his general observations with examples drawn from the history of the town in which he’s speaking. 7 p.m. Historical Society of Cheshire County, 246 Main St. (603) 352-1895. April 25: Overboard: A True Bluewater Odyssey of a New Hampshire Man’s Survival, Brentwood, NH. In May of 2005 Captain Tom Tighe and first mate Loch Reidy of the sailboat Almeisan welcomed three new crewmembers for a five-day voyage from Connecticut to Bermuda. One
of the new members was Ron Burd of NH. Four days into their voyage a massive storm struck and Captain Tighe and Reidy were swept from the boat carried away by huge seas. The three new crew members somehow remained on the vessel as it was torn apart by the seas. Using slides, Michael J. Tougias brings this story to life, following the desperate struggles of both the crew on the boat and the Captain and first mate in the sea. Tougias met Ron Burd at a Humanities Council-sponsored presentation of one of Tougias’ other HTG programs. Burd shared his amazing story of survival with Tougias, who wrote a book about Burd’s experiences and created this new HTG program as well. 7 p.m. Mary E. Bartlett Library, 22 Dalton Rd. (603) 642-3355. April 27-29: Daffodil Festival Weekend, Nantucket, MA. More than 3 million blooms awaken across the island in spring, and the residents celebrate with an antique car parade, tailgate picnic, daffodil show, dog parade, and more. (508) 228-1700;nantucketchamber. org.
April 28: AVRA Model Railroad Spring Show, North Haverhill, NH. This year the show features more operating layouts than last, including a 4 foot by 8 foot winter-themed HO railroad; Pete Hess’s On30 operating display (with sound); John Gould’s “Thomas” HO operating layout, and several other modular displays. Models of different types of trains will also be on display, including the Southern Pacific’s “Daylight” passenger train in O scale (some 20 feet long), and several milk trains as well. Additionally, the host organization’s HO scale layout will again feature the “virtual engineer,” which allows show attendees to experience the thrill of riding in a locomotive cab through the magic of a miniature color television camera mounted inside the lead engine of an operating model train. The video images are shown on a color TV monitor that is part of the layout. Besides the various operating layouts, the show will include several dozen dealers
with a broad selection of model railroad locomotives, cars, and accessories for sale. Admission fee. 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Haverhill Cooperative Middle School, Morrill Drive. (603) 989-5543, (603) 747-3492. May 3: Grail Mania: 12th Century Heresy, 21st Century Obsession, Portsmouth, NH. The Troubadours sang of it; courtly knights quested for it; Monty Python laughed at it. The Chalice beckons through the mists of pre-history to bind us in its intrigue still. Our fascination with this symbol is alive and well in New Hampshire. Presented by Diana Durham. 7 p.m. Portsmouth Public Library, 175 Parrott Ave. (603) 427-1540. May 6: Fishing Derby, Londonderry, NH. The event is open to children ages 14 and under accompanied by adults for supervision. Both the Londonderry Fish and Game and the state of NH stock the pond just before the fishing derby with various types of fish making it relatively easy to catch them. Prizes in various categories are provided. The event is always a lot of fun for those who love the outdoors. It is a great opportunity for your young ones to reel in a fish and for you to catch it all with your camera! Food and Drink will be available to purchase. Bring your own worms and tackle. Registration required. Free. 8 a.m.-12 p.m. (rain or shine). Londonderry Fish and Game Club (access is off of 5 Lund Street, Litchfield). www. londonderryfishandgameclub. com. May 7: Dissent among the Puritans, Amherst, NH. The year is 1637. Ann Vassall, wife of William Vassall of Essex, England, one of the founders of the Massachusetts Bay Company, welcomes you to your new home in the bay. Her words of advice and narration of events going on in town might make you wish you had stayed in England or look toward New Hampshire or Connecticut as a place of settlement. The living history portion of the program is followed by a colorful PowerPoint presentation, chronicling the dissent among fellow puritans after they reached Massachusetts,
focusing on the anger directed at William Vassall, Ann’s husband, who was despised by minister and magistrate alike for his liberal ideas about civil liberty and religion. Presented by Linda Palmer. 2 p.m. Amherst Town Library, 14 Main St. (603) 672-1952 . May 17: Who Won the War of 1812? New Hampshire’s Forgotten Patriot Pirates, Rye, NH. When was the War of 1812? That’s a trick question, but if you don’t recall America’s “Forgotten War” with England - you’re not alone. Two hundred years ago, with only 17 armed ships, a youthful United States declared war on the world’s largest navy (wit 700 ships). Then we invaded Canada. In retaliation the British burned Washington, DC to the ground. So how come we think we won? History writer J. Dennis Robinson offers an upbeat, often irreverent, bicentennial look at New Hampshire’s reluctant role in “Mr. Madison’s War” with special emphasis on the privateers who swarmed out of the state’s only seaport. 7 p.m. Webster at Rye Assisted Living Community, 795 Washington Rd. (603) 964-8144, ext. 258. May 20: Annual Chocolate Lovers Fantasy, Manchester, NH. So much Chocolate … so little time! The CareGivers Inc. invites you to an indulgent afternoon of chocolate sampling. Vendors ranging from local bakeries, local winery’s, restaurants and candy shops to national brands are on hand to provide samples of their favorite chocolate creations and pairing products. Some vendors will be taking advantage of the option to sell their chocolate creations and products. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a unique - silent auction experience and enjoy the musical ambiance of extraordinary local musicians all while supporting a great cause. Proceeds help support the programs and services of The CareGivers, Inc. Admission fee. 12-3 p.m. Radisson Hotel Manchester. www. caregiversnh.org
