ConcordRotary names new president

Timothy Britain, partner and shareholder at Cleveland, Waters and Bass, has assumed the role of president, effective July 1, for the Rotary Club of Concord. Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on Feb. 23, 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Over time, Rotary’s reach and vision gradually extended to humanitarian service. Members have a long track record of addressing challenges in their communities and around the world.

HennikerActressess wanted

Alchemists’ Workshop is shooting a short film later this month and needs two actresses, about 18 to 22-years-old, for a short film about love during a quarantine.“Distance” is the story of two female lovers who, when a pandemic strikes the nation, become separated by a quarantine that confines them to their homes. Over the course of the coming weeks they struggle to stay entertained, growing more and more restless as their anniversary grows closer. When things seem at their bleakest, the main character finds a way to celebrate their anniversary and share their love with their partner despite the distance that keeps them separated during such difficult times, and come the morning of their anniversary they realize how made for each other they truly are. One actress will play the lead character: an outgoing and loving person who thrives on human contact and their social life. This is the kind of person who struggles most with the monotony of quarantine. The supporting actress is supportive, kind, and maintains a more level-head during these trying times. They both find a way to remind each other of their shared love in very similar ways come the morning of their anniversary. The three-to-five-day shoot will take place between Aug. 16 and 26, allocating extra time to pre-production and reshoots/ADR if necessary. Location TBD; will be in central New Hampshire area. Talent will be paid. If you are interested in more information, please contact Director Matt Quinney at

FranklinBuy a bag

The ban on reusable grocery bags has been lifted by Gov. Sununu. If you disinfect the bags after each use, reusable bags may once again be used in place of the ubiquitous store-supplied plastic bags. Customers may also opt to bag their own purchases. Any effort to reduce the number of plastic bags being twirled by the wind into tree branches or littering our streets, sidewalks, public and private properties, or fouling our waterways, can only be construed as positive. For the month of August, the Franklin Historical Society will receive a $1 donation from each purchase of the $2.50 reusable Community Bag at the Hannaford at 952 Central St., Franklin. Hannaford’s Community Reusable Bag Program has helped contribute to several local non-profit organizations over the years, and Hannaford Market’s outreach is greatly appreciated.
