Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: Sing (even badly) for a truly great cause
One judge of an upcoming city karaoke competition agrees with me.
“Confidence is key,” said Pubali Campbell, owner of Bikram Yoga Manchester. “Talent has a time and place but it’s the willingness to challenge yourself that impresses me the most.”
“Do I have a good voice? Nope,” said Belouin, who has worked as a volunteer and staff member of the non-profit since 1992.
And confidence? She exudes it (at least over the phone) and even teaches a self-esteem class for The Way Home called “Finding the Winner Within.” Who can compete with that?
Belouin, who will probably sing something by Patsy Cline or Loretta Lynn, said she hopes the event will help raise money for some of The Way Home’s programs she works on, including the pick-up and delivery of donated furniture and apartment inspections.
The NH Community Seafood group will begin delivering fresh, New Hampshire-caught fish to Manchester every Thursday, beginning June 12.
This is the second year of the organization’s Community Supporter Fishery (CSF) program, which brings members healthy, local protein fish while supporting our state’s fishermen.
Garden party time
It is hard to miss The Moore Center’s annual Garden Party. This enticing springtime soiree takes place under a huge, white tent on the front lawn of Brady Sullivan tower, right where Elm Street and the Amoskeag Bridge meet.
Don’t miss the parade
Next Monday is Memorial Day, and the city’s annual parade will head down Elm Street on Monday, May 26, at 2 p.m.
Parade organizer Mike Lopez said all veterans will be honored at this year’s parade, with a specific focus on Vietnam veterans to commemorate the 50th anniversary of that war. Bill Whitmore, commander of Sweeney Post and a veteran, is expected to talk about Vietnam.
NH365.ORG event of the week
The New Hampshire Philharmonic has planned a powerful, live performance for Memorial Day weekend. Into the Light, starting at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Palace Theatre, will feature bold and beautiful music to honor our women and men in uniform and those who died in our nation’s service.
Tickets are $12 to $50. For more information on this, and other Memorial Day events visit www.NH365.org.
