Rock & Roll Barn Dance

Friday, August 5, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:30pm

Friday, August 5, 2016, the White Oak Pond Watershed Association, in collaboration with the Squam Lakes Association and the Squam Lakes Conservation Society, is sponsoring a classic rock concert and dance at the beautiful Fisher Family Activity Barn in Holderness! This event raises funds for the Marry H. Perry Conservation fund which helps preserve open land in the White Oak Pond Watershed, for future generations to enjoy. IT's about dancing to help save the natural environment. What could be more fun and wholesome than that?

The live rock band is now infamous (and local) Postage Due which features Larry Mowbray, former Postmaster of the Town of Holderness on lead guitar, and other local musicians include: Rich Cocciaro (lead vocals), Galen Beach (keyboard), Lisa Lovett (vocals), Rod Sandy (bass guitar), Bill Joyner from Laconia (Postage Dues' new drummer), and Elaine Powell from Chicago (vocals). Postage Due has for many years, been a feature at the summer Holderness Gazebo concert series, local parties and celebrations. It will be a great classic rock and roll evening. 

Doors wil be open at 6:45 PM and the evening entertainment begins at 7 PM and ends at 9:30 PM. The Fisher Family Barn has ample room to dance, tap your foot, or just sit and remember the glorious days of classic rock and roll sung by the local folks you know. No alcohol is permitted in the barn, but bring any non-alcoholic refreshments you might want to have. 

Suggested donation $10 per person. All donations qualify as charitable gifts for tax purposes and checks can be made out to MHP Fund/Squam Lakes Conservation Society. 

White Oak Pond Watershed Association (WOPWA) and the Mary H Perry Conservation Fund

In 1973 Mary Perry (late of Franks Ln, Holderness) proposed to her neighbors that White OAk Pond needed its own watershed association, like SLA, but with a more specific focus on the issues of the Pond. The organization was incorporated that year. Over the years, the White Oak Pond Watershed Association has been involved with matters of subdivision/development, wetlands, horsepower limit, dam ownership, wildlife monitoring, water quality monitoring, and most recently the creation of the Mary H Perry Conservation Fund that raises money to reimburse landowners for expenses associated with land conservation in the watershed. The Squam Lakes Conservation Society works closely with WOPWA in its mission to protect wild land in the watershed.
