Volunteers needed

N.H. Senior Companion volunteers are providing friendly check-in calls to older adults who are isolated and would benefit from regular connection to our friendly volunteers. Senior Companions call program participants once a week to check on their well-being and to report any concerns to program staff, who then make referrals to family members, other resources, or agencies. Socialization, peace of mind and a friendly voice are all part of the experience for the Senior Companion Program Telephone Reassurance participants. The calls serve as a “wellness check” plus provide an opportunity to socialize. This aspect of the program was initiated in March due to COVID-19 and the inability to provide actual home visits. If you would like to volunteer, call 225-3295.

Bow Head to drive-in

FieldHouse Sports, located at 12 Tallwood Drive, in Bow has turned their parking lot into an entertainment venue this summer called FieldHouse Drive-In Entertainment. The intent is to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to get outside and spend time together, while still social distancing. The summer schedule will offer drive-in movies and live music events. This Friday, July 3 at 7:30 p.m., listen to The Jordan TW Trio, with New Hampshire natives Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki on fiddle, Matt Jensen on guitar and Chris Noyes on upright bass. Together they put a fresh, dynamic spin on Celtic Music. Next Friday, July 10, at 7 p.m. see Trade live. Trade is a soul and funk powerhouse with deep New Hampshire roots. In an effort to comply with social distancing requirements, guests will arrive in their vehicles and have two options for watching and listening to the entertainment. Guests can watch or listen from inside their cars via the outdoor sound system or they can sit outside next to their vehicles in their lawn chairs. The movies will also be broadcast on an FM frequency. An outdoor concession stand will be available to purchase beverages and snacks at all events. Tickets, event schedule additions and more information can be found at fieldhousesports.com/drive-in or by calling 226-4646.

Boscawen Gallery open

Twiggs Gallery has reopened their doors with a new exhibit, the COVID Art Mask Pop-Up Show. The art speaks to our current experience during the coronavirus pandemic.
