The Chocorua Community Association presents it's Third Annual Light the Night, on Sunday Jan 28th. The festivities begin at 4:00pm at The Farmstand with an open house, and hot beverages. We'll spark the bonfire next to the dam in the park across the way at 5:00pm, and then move on to Runnels Hall for a pot luck supper at 6:00pm. Donations to the Chocorua River Dam Park are encouraged, and the pot luck dinner is BYOB.
Also, it takes a village to light the night, so please help us out and give us your tired, bedraggled, shedding Christmas trees, yearning to burn free. You can drop them off on the rte 16 side of the park, we'll have a sign up. We can also use some hard wood pallets, if you have any.
Save the date! Tamworth Visitors Bureau will once again be transforming Tamworth;s historic community into an outdoor painting studio with a vision of becoming one of the East Coast’s most prestigious plein air art events, WET PAINT.

Since then he has earned a Summa Cum Laude Theater BA from USM (University of Southern Maine) and studied with Master Marcel Marceau. Mr. Rocha’s unique solo shows of stories and mime have been performed from Singapore to Hawaii and many places in between. Some of the venues include The Singapore Festival of the Arts, Wolf Trap, The National Storytelling Festival, The Kennedy Center, The Smithsonian Institution, The National Geographic, The Tales of Graz in Austria, Dunya Festival in Holland as well as many other Storytelling Festivals and educational institutions around the USA.

Arts Council of Tamworth presents
Beyond the Voice : The Art of Mime in Storytelling
with Antonio Rocha
Wednesday, November 15
Cook Memorial Library Tamworth
Please join us for this FREE community storytelling workshop with Antonio Rocha! Antonio is a dedicated teacher with 30 years of experience as a mime, actor and storyteller. Workshop participants will explore individual creativity with the use of body language and mime techniques to make the invisible visible.
Studies prove that body language accounts to more than 70% of how we communicate! Turns out what we say has very little to do with what we mean. Learn to create atmosphere, develop your character and craft seamless transitions. Antonio will guide you with care through these discoveries.
This is a participatory session, filled with fun and movement. Learn and explore in a fun and safe environment with Antonio and your neighbors. Your stories will never be the same!
This community workshop is free and open to the public. No experience necessary. Donations appreciated.
Mark your calendars also for Antonio's final performance, a riveting one-man show, on Friday, November 17th!
Gather at the Veterans Memorial to share with us in honoring our veterans. Please bring a photo of yourself or a loved one in Military uniform. A table will be set up to display them.
