Then help join the fight and join in support of awareness for cancer. The Sunapee Police Department is growing beards and holding a fundraiser through the month of November to raise money and support their team "Sunapee Stubble" through us.movember.com. From that page anyone can make a donation, or send/drop off a donation at the Sunapee Police Department made payable to the Sunapee Police Benevolent Association (SPBA), put "Movember" in memo, and at the end of the month they will forward the money to a cancer fund of their team's choice.
Friday evenings at the Sunapee Community Coffeehouse. This Friday, October 18th, listen to the sounds of the double neck guitar played by Ian Ethan Chase. His strikingly-unconventional, self-invented approach to the double-neck guitar is both magical to hear and fascinating to watch. And while his performances are visually intriguing to say the least, it is not showmanship but rather the sincere desire to accurately communicate the harmonically rich, multi-layered music of his composing. Shows are held downstairs at the Sunapee Methodist Church, 17 Lower Main Street in Sunapee, NH. All Events start at 7PM. Pass the hat donations for the musician. For more information, visit their website www.sunapeecoffeehouse.org
The library is also holding a lock in read-a-thon fundraiser on Saturday, May 18, from 6-11pm. Students in grade 1-12 are encouraged to participate by collecting pledges for minutes read or a fixed amount. Come into the library and read during that time and enjoy breaks for snacks and activities. Wear your pajamas if you'd like. Permission forms and pledge sheets can be gotten at the library. Funds raised will benefit the new Abbot Library. A great way to read, have fun and support your local library!

"...one of the best ballad singers I've ever heard!" ~ Boston Globe.
Music begins at 7pm and the Coffeehouse is located downstairs at the Sunapee Methodist Church, 17 Lower Main Street in Sunapee, NH. A hat is passed for donations for the musicians.
