Sunapee, N.H. — The Sunapee Gardeners invites the public to a presentation by Tim Fenton about the history, sinking and restoration of the MV Kearsarge. The program will be held on Tuesday, June 10, at 7 p.m., at the Knowlton House, 63 Main Street, Sunapee Harbor.
The Fenton family operates both the MV Kearsarge, a restaurant boat, and its sister ship, the MV Mt. Sunapee II, a tour boat. The boats run out of Sunapee Harbor.
The Kearsarge partially sank while moored at the Sunapee Town Dock in January 2013. After a complete renovation— four months of work—the popular dinner boat was back in service cruising Lake Sunapee.

Sunapee, N. H. – The Sunapee Gardeners are off to a great start. Summer annuals are on order for planting the first week in June.
Now the local gardening group is looking for a few more volunteers: male, female, snowbirds or full-timers.
“The Gardeners are a fun, friendly group dedicated to making our town beautiful while maintaining gardens between Georges Mills and the harbor,” said the release. “Give us a few hours a month and we promise you camaraderie, a sense of accomplishment and the satisfaction of knowing you have contributed to the natural beauty of our area.”
“Lively monthly meetings, educational and social activities, and area garden tours round out the menu.”

Sunapee. N.H. – The Annual Sunapee Middle High School Art Show will be on display for a week with the opening reception on Thursday, May 22, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
The show, which will be in the school’s Common area, will include a wide array of artwork from students in grades 6-12, but will highlight the work of seniors.
Both two and three-dimensional pieces will be shown, with the work of underclassmen grouped together in the center and seniors encircling the room with individual sections.
The exhibit will feature not only conceptual development pieces but also the expressive output of individual ideas and imaginations, said Gail Baade, the SMHS art teacher. One will see references to the elements and principles of art, art history, whimsical art and nature.
Photos show a panel of mixed student work (above) and an acrylic by Savannah Borelli, title: “The Squeal” – a parody of “The Scream” by E. Munch.
During the show, a docent for the Harbor House Livery will be present to share information about the landmark building, its history and restoration plans. For more information, contact email@example.com.
