On Wednesday, April 5 from 5 to 7 p.m., up to 15 local camps will be on hand to offer information paired with some activities, prizes and a light dinner.

April 7: Moore film ‘Where to Invade Next’ screened

Doreen Fabiano and Carlene Lundgren, local advocates for the environment and other important issues facing the world today will screen Michael Moore’s award-winning film Where to Invade Next at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 7 at The Meeting Place at Neighborhood Connections.

This epic movie is unlike anything the political provocateur has ever done. It is an expansive, hilarious and subversive comedy/documentary in which Moore confronts the most pressing issues facing America today and finds solutions in the most unlikely places. Where to Invade Next is an eye-opening call to arms to recapture the American Dream and restore it to, of all places, America.

There is no charge to attend, but space is limited, so call 824-4343 to register. The Meeting Place is located in Londonderry’s Mountain Marketplace, next to the Post Office.

April 8: Chester-Andover Easter Egg Hunt

This event is open to all Chester and Andover children from preschool to sixth grade. Parents are advised to arrive with their children by 8:45 a.m. so the children will not miss the opportunity for participation.
For further information, please contact Bill Dakin at 802-875-3456.
