2017 “Laconia Multicultural Festival” Is On Saturday, September 9 — BUT With A Very Limited Program.
2017 Laconia Multicultural Festival Program
Wow. Wow. Wow!
I was planning to go — given that I have only missed two of the 16 Laconia Multicultural Festivals. Hence why I went looking for the program. Yikes.
Wonder what happened? This is WAY SCALED back. I will have to talk to some folks to get the story.
FREE Christmas Trees For 4th Graders Through The Wonderful U.S. Government “Every Kid In A Park” Program.
Available in New Hampshire too!
The “Every Kid In A Park” is a wonderful program — a worthwhile use of OUR tax dollars.
We lucked out last year, 2015 – 2016 School Year to be precise. Teischan was a 4th grader. I printed out the forms online.
So, I am an avid supporter of this program.
This free Christmas tree deal is another winner. A great promotion. I am delightedPass this information along.
All 4th Grade teachers should make a point of explaining this to their kids.
[Some, for reasons that escape me, are reluctant. I tried to get Teischan’s teacher to tell the other kids about this program BEFORE the Summer vacation. She never did!]

I, as a regular patron (and a huge supporter), got a very colorful postcard from the HOP about this concert last week. Today I got an e-mail about it. It looks mouthwateringly tempting. And I got a tabla set for Christmas (in 2015)! So this would be good. Yes, the kids would like it — and they love going to the HOP. The only problem is that it is a school night and we will not get home earlier than 11pm. Yes, it is still doable.
But irrespective of whether we are going I wanted to make sure that YOU knew about it. We have over the years, and I am talking 19 years at least, have enjoyed some marvelous concerts, many ethnic, at the HOP. So please do check it out. You will not regret it.
Sandeep Das as his own tabla-infused Website. It is neat. Check that out too.
That they are targeting this specifically at girls … is … Hhhmmm. Yes, I fully understand. The goal is to get more girls interested in coding. Yes, I get that, yes, I know that. But boys would like too — I think. But, I could be wrong on that.
I was taken back and delighted when I saw this, in the form of an e-mail, this morning. Kids in the Northeast, particularly in NH, could do with ALL the EXPOSURE they can to the wide world beyond the borders of their state (or in some cases their town). This is why I am such a big advocate of the Laconia ‘Multicultural Day‘.
Learning about the ‘Silk Road‘ could sure inspire kids to explore their wonderlust. The ‘Silk Road’ has it all: adventure, history, culture, art, music, romance. Yes, I have a soft spot in my heart of the ‘Silk Road’ — other than the fact that the ‘Silk Road’ also traversed through Ceylon, by birthplace. In 1983 when UNESCO started its grand ‘Silk Road’ program, my adoptive father, by then a 15 year old and Director-level official with UNESCO, was part of the team. As it happened the Ceylon (by then Sri Lanka) part of the UNESCO kick-off was scheduled for August 1983. I happened to be in Sri Lanka at the time. So given that my adoptive father and mother were also there, from Paris, as was the Director General (who I had met many times in Paris), we attended many of the events. Somewhere in this house there is also a lavishly produced UNESCO book, published in 1983, for the ‘Silk Road’. So ..
This GRAND. I am happy. Bravo.
