Fireworks in Jackson Village


July 6

We will be shooting off our fireworks from a new location this year, therefore you may want to rethink your viewing spot.  The fireworks will be going off from the Jackson Village Park area.  The area coverage for viewing should be just about the same but the area where you will look for the fireworks will change.  Because the area where they shoot them off from requires pretty much the entire baseball field in the park - the park will be closed to the general public immediately following the Wildquack Duck River Festival at 3 PM.  You can get a spot on the top grassy area just south of the Snowflake Inn, along the river bank walk way of the Wildcat River behind the Snowflake Inn, at the Village Gazebo along the Wildcat River close to the Post Office and any area along Main Stree in Jackson Village.  Please remember that you can not go into the Jackson Village Park it will be closed to the public... this is for safety reasons and required by the law.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the office at 603-383-9356.  The fireworks normally go off at 9:15 PMish.

Attitash Mountainside Music Series:


July 13

July 13, 2013

Join us as we kickoff our Mountainside Music Series with bands performing at Attitash from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturdays during the months of July and August. This is a rain or shine event with the ability to move in doors to Ptarmigan's Pub if weather could affect play.

The Blue James Band is an American rock band founded and fronted by vocalist and guitar player Clifton Williams.  The Blue James Band was formed in Los Angeles, California, but are now based in Boston, MA.

"The evening's opening act, The Blue James Band, showcased its acoustic/electric jam-pop, never straying far from the formula that makes it successful - catchy hooks, reggae-tinged grooves and chops-laden solos. Frontman Clifton Williams and keyboardist Valerie Taylor's harmonies complement each other perfectly (as on "Believe") and an impeccably tight drums and bass combo allows them to trade solos with equal aplomb ("Full Circle"). It didn't take long – just two songs - before the Blue James Band had the first dancer of the night on her feet, swaying and flailing as the band chugged along happily and handily."

The Patriot Brass Ensemble is the first and only professional brass group dedicated to serving Veterans and Military Families. In 2004 the group first performed in a community in New Jersey, after local resident and founder Steven Behnke was unhappy with the music at the town's Memorial Day Ceremony. He spoke to the town and secured funding to construct a new ensemble, and the effect the music had far surpassed all expectations. "We had Veterans walking up to us telling us this was the best ceremony they had ever been to. That feeling was amazing", says Steven. Little did he know, this would become his life's work. The Patriot Brass has planned a good old-fashioned band concert featuring their 14-piece brass band with lots of favorites especially for this evening - a treat for the ears and feet!

Come in time for the early concert at 6 PM. Bring a picnic supper, spread your blanket or set up your lawn chairsand enjoy some of the valley's local musicians enriching lives through music! A great evening of family fun and live, world-class entertainment at an affordable price. Come enjoy great music in nature's wonderful outdoor setting at Cranmore Mountain - plenty of convenient parking, handicap accessible, and minutes from North Conway village.

U.S. CELLULAR TO SHARE “FIRST PHONE” TIPS AT FREE DEVICE WORKSHOP IN NORTH CONWAY


July 25

As more children begin getting their first mobile phones, parents are challenged with ensuring their kids are using their phones responsibly, courteously and safely. To make this milestone easier on both parents and kids, U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) is offering a free Device Workshop on Thursday, July 25 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at 1584 White Mountain Road in North Conway, focused on helping families make the decision of when to get children their first phone along with ways that mobile phones can help families stay connected and strengthen relationships.

The workshop is open to everyone and associates will offer families tips on setting phone guidelines, share suggestions to help with the decision of getting their child their first cell phone and discuss ways that devices and apps can benefit everyone in the family.

“Giving a child their first cell phone is a big step for any parent and we want to educate families and provide them with the tools they need to make the decision as smooth as possible,” said Matt Kasper, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in New England.  “Mobile devices help parents and children stay connected and can enhance time spent as a family. These Device Workshops offer great hands-on demonstrations that both parents and children will find useful.”

The workshops come on the heels of U.S. Cellular’s Better Moments online survey¹, which found that one in three parents say their mobile device has improved their relationships with their children. In addition, the survey revealed that while 91 percent of parents set mobile phone usage guidelines for their children, 63 percent indicated they would find it helpful to have a parent-child agreement to guide their ability to supervise children’s usage and behavior with mobile devices.

With this survey data in mind, U.S. Cellular created a Parent-Child Agreement that can guide the conversations parents and children can have when getting their first phone. The agreement is customizable so that families can make it work for their specific needs. The Parent-Child Agreement is available for download at www.ChildPhoneAgreement.com

Please call 603-356-7900 ext. 3 to RSVP.
