Rise and shine! Join the SLA bright and early for a sunrise hike to the East Rattlesnake viewpoint, accessed via the Butterworth Trail. This program is open to anyone ages 12 and up who is comfortable hiking a total of 1.6 miles (keeping in mind half of that will be in the dark!). There will be an elevation gain of 695 feet over 0.8 miles to get to the East Rattlesnake summit at 1297’. Participants will meet at the Butterworth Trail trailhead off of Metcalf Road (0.5 miles from NH - 113) before beginning the hike. We will wait for the sunrise to break over the horizon at the viewpoint, overlooking Squam and Winnipesaukee in the distance (projected for 7:13 am). Plenty of warm layers, water, your favorite warm beverage, and snacks are recommended. We will then head back to the parking area via Butterworth Trail.

Therapeutic Dance Workshop January 25th
Saturday January 25th 3-5pm | Meredith Whole Living Center | 48 Main St, Meredith
"The body remembers what the mind forgets". Whether it's stress or trauma, happiness or sadness, all of our emotions live in the body. This workshop is designed to help participants connect more deeply to their emotions and learn how to express these feelings through movement. Using practices from both modern dance and dance movement therapy, individuals will explore movement through individual, partner, and group improvisational exercises. While some movement experience is helpful (dance, yoga, etc), those with no prior experience but who come with an open mind are welcome as well.
Preregistration required- Maximum of 15 spots available
Sign up by January 23rd to secure your spot!

Bagpipes with attitude. Drums with a Scottish accent. A blazing rock band and show so hot, it carries its own health warning!

It’s The Red Hot Chilli PIPERS – (NOT the Peppers!) -- a 9-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards, and drummers -- who have been rocking the world from New York to Beijing to Melbourne and everywhere in between with musicianship of the highest order and a passion for pipes that will leave you breathless. The band has four music degrees from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and all the pipers and drummers have played at the top level in bagpiping.
