Renaissance Faire goes digital

The producers of The New Hampshire Renaissance Faire invite you to join us for a live online Renaissance faire telethon – we’re calling it a “Renathon” – as we raise funds to support Rockingham Nutrition & Meals on Wheels and the New Hampshire Food Bank. This family-friendly, educational, visual, theatrical, and fantastical event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 8, 9,15 and 16th. We’ll have a different schedule of performers each day, many of them LIVE, including music, comedy, bellydancers, storytellers, a magic show, and historical demonstrations. Go to www.NHRenFaire.org or facebook.com/nhrenfaire for more information about our event (that’s Faire with an “e”.) Donations can be made at: paypal.me/NHrenfaire. The annual NHRF was established in 2005 and was purchased by the Three Maples Renaissance Corporation in 2012 when it was designated a 501(c)(3) charity. The Faire has grown in leaps and bounds and has provided fun family entertainment to over 4000 people each year. “The N.H. Food Bank has been fortunate to be a beneficiary of the N.H. Renaissance Faire,” said Eileen Liponis, Executive Director, New Hampshire Food Bank. “Their generous support continues to make a positive impact on the lives of so many of our neighbors experiencing food insecurity, this year especially. The impact of COVID has brought a greater need than we’ve ever seen before. We’re grateful to the N.H. Renaissance Faire team for their commitment to support our mission despite the challenges we still face due to the pandemic.” Debra Perou, Executive Director of Rockingham Nutrition & Meals on Wheels said, “For every $10 we receive in donations, we can provide three ready to eat home delivered meals.” Over 1,200 people count on them each day for meals.

WarnerLearn about Mink Hills history

Rebecca Courser will present a program on the “Social History of the Mink Hills,” based on her years of research. The Mink Hills encompass over 15,000 acres in Warner, within its boundaries were ten distinct and independent school districts, thirteen burial grounds, and several small mills. Hardscrabble farms dotted the countryside. Originally growing enough food to subsist, farmers later sold or traded their surplus to merchants in Bradford, Warner, and Henniker. In 1849, Warner had 4,879 sheep and a population of only 2,038 hardy citizens. The introduction of the railroad in that same year would greatly expand the markets for all matter of farm and home production. In 1858, the Minks contained 140 farms and by 1892 fifty of those farms had been absorbed into surrounding farms or reverted to timber lots. The downward trend would continue over the following decades. Where did everyone go and why? Join the Warner Historical Society online on April 28 at 7 p.m. to learn more!

The Society has yearly exhibits, and programs in the Upton Chandler House Museum on Main Street and maintains the Lower Warner Meeting House which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
