Belmont Adventure Ride

On June 10 and 11, the Merrimack Valley Trail Riders will be hosting a two-day Adventure Ride to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! By participating, you can help people with cystic fibrosis move one step closer to a cure and get a chance to win a new 2023 Suzuki V-STROM 800DE! Each rider will receive one chance to win the new Suzuki Bike, and riders may fundraise to earn more chances. The MVTR Adventure Ride is a non-competition event for licensed motorcycle riders on fully street legal registered motorcycles. The route begins at Lakes Region Casino in Belmont and consists entirely of public roads, both paved and dirt. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs of nearly 40,000 people in the United States. For more information visit:

Concord Author event: Hiking with Kids

Want to get outside with the kiddos this summer? Have no hiking experience (or maybe a little experience, or a lot of experience but none with kids tagging along) and want someone to tell you where to start? Join Gibson’s Bookstore as they welcome NH author and hiker/parent Sarah Lamagna (rhymes with lasagna!) as she shares her new guidebook, “Hiking with Kids New England: 50 Great Hikes for Families,” and goes over the top things that she finds are the most useful to bring with you when hiking with kids. Kids are welcome at this event! Saturday, June 10, at 11 a.m. at Gibson’s Bookstore, 45 South Main Street, in Concord.

Concord Photo contest

The NH Association of Conservation Commissions is launching a state-wide amateur photo contest to celebrate “The Natural World of NH,” beginning June 1. The theme – Water, Wetlands and Wildlife – gives a wide variety of potential material for the public’s photos. Why a photo contest now? NHACC wants to encourage the public to get outdoors. There’s an added incentive of cash prizes; $250 for winners, and $50 for honorable mentions. Winners and honorable mentions will be awarded in three age groups; children under 12, teens 13-18 and adults. Contestants can submit up to three images on a digital platform; ArtCall . They’ll be able to edit or change their entry any time before midnight on Sept. 8. Winners will be awarded prizes and their photos will be on display at NHACC’s Annual Meeting and Conference on November 4. Visit for a full list of contest rules and entry instructions.

Pembroke Golf Outing

This Golf Outing Fund Raiser will be held June 8, 7:30, at the Pembroke Pines Country Club at 42 Whittemore Road in Pembroke, and lunch is being served. This is a fundraiser by the Smykil Family Foundation, a 501c3 organization that provides financial aid to high school seniors at the CRTC at Concord High School.
