FRANKLIN — Mix 94.1fm, along with Northeast Communications Radio Stations 106.9 WSCY and 100.1 The Planet, presents its 27th annual Cash-and-Cans money and food drive for the holidays December 6-13.
The fundraiser, started by Mix 94.1fm's Fred Caruso in 1987, raises food and money for ten central New Hampshire charitable organizations, from food pantries to soup kitchens to toys-for-tots programs. Caruso, along with morning co-host Amy Bates, will be accepting monetary and non-perishable food donations with 100% of the proceeds from Cash-and-Cans staying right here in our central New Hampshire area.
"We live in a wonderful area, neighbors helping neighbors, friends helping friends, people helping folks they've never even met. That's what Cash-and-Cans is all about," said Caruso.

GILFORD — Gilford's Historical Society will once again have a table at the Gilford Middle High School Fair on December 7 at the usual place in the hallway near the food court in the Middle School. Members have made and will be selling many attractive evergreen swags in various sizes and with different colored bows.
There will also be the unique Gilford throws which include the gazebo, covered bridge and many other Gilford landmarks on it; they come in burgundy, forest green and slate blue.
"The History of Gunstock Parish", a book that tells the history of Gilford, will also be available.
The Candlelight Stroll Committee is trying to get more musical groups, either singers or musicians, to perform near the bonfire by the gazebo in the Village Field, or to stroll the candlelit street.
If interested in volunteering in any way, shape or manner, contact Kathy for the Historical Society or Dee at 527-4732 for the Candlelight Stroll Committee.
