On Saturday, December 1, please join us for a Christmas Tea at 6pm at Center Barnstead Christian Church. This tea has been specially designed for adult ladies to refocus on the real Reason for the Season, Christ the Messiah being born, and reflect on what it means to each of us. The church is located next to the town hall at 116 S. Barnstead Rd.

Community Game Night December 1st


Itís been almost a month since we had our non-bonfire fall gathering.  The rain had kept everything wet enough, but regardless, the wind was blowing way too strong to light a big open fire.  The pile will still be there when we want to light it some other time.  Weíll let you know when that is.  Instead, everybody just hung out in the tree house with the wood stove roaring and the pot luck food so tantalizing.  We all just sort of hung out, snacked and played games.  It was fun.  There were all kinds of games.  There was a family jenga competition.  Everybody just loved playing the table top home rollin bowlin game.  And itís been years since Iíve played cribbage.  Well needless to say, we all wanted to do it again.  We thought, how about next month?  We picked Saturday December 1st because itís way early in the holiday season and hopefully folks may not have lots of other things going on yet.


It will be happening at Sticks & Stones Farm, which is located at 107 White Oak Road in Center Barnstead. which is located on the right side, not to far from the top of the hill when coming from Route 28. There will be hot chocolate and hot cider and other goodies Iím sure.  So please consider coming over.  Bring a friend, bring your family, and consider bringing some food to share and any beverages youíd like to drink.  Itíll be from 5 to 9PM, so we hope to see you there.  Brought to you by the Barnstead Agricultural Association.  For more information call: 603-776-8989.
