Lord’s Hill Blueberry Festival and Concert
The Lord’s Hill Meeting House is pleased to announce our first Blueberry Festival, to be held on the Meeting House and Parade Ground (660 Province Lake Road, Effingham). Please join us on Sunday August 11 from 12-4pm – we plan to have blueberry related activities for one and all. Olivia Saunders, from the Carroll County office of UNH Cooperative Extension will be our featured speaker on blueberry cultivation from 1-2pm. Kids activities will be provided by local 4-H groups throughout the afternoon. Lunch will be available, as well as a smorgasbord style sampling of blueberry edibles, blueberry ice cream provided by Bobby Sue’s, and a pie eating contest. There will also be blueberry shrubs for sale – 5 varieties, in several sizes. To top off the day, a concert on the bandstand starts at 4PM with the Northwood. Northwood blends bluegrass, folk, country and Americana to create arrangements full of powerful harmonies and solid instrumentation. The band features Kirk Underwood on guitar, Ann Murray on accordion, Greg Bjork on mandolin, and Kate Driver on bass.
