Dinner Gala on Thurs. Feb. 15

On Thursday evening, Feb. 15th the Corner House Inn hosts a Storytelling Dinner Gala. Marking the half way point in the 30th season of the popular Storytelling Dinner series, five different storytellers will be on hand spinning yarns after dinner. The mid-season gala storytellers include both Corner House favorites and program newcomers. Gala evenings are extremely popular, and advance reservations are highly recommended!

Featured at the mid-season gala program will be Corner House "regulars" Lauretta Phillips and Roxie Zwicker, and storyteller/entertainer Cindy Duchin. They will be joined by tellers Vicky Dworkin and Quinn Golden, who will both be making their inaugural Corner House storytelling appearance.

Colorful storyteller and author Lauretta Phillips' sense of humor and her delight in the story always makes for a fun and exciting evening. A storyteller since 1987, she writes most of the stories she tells and her repertoire includes folk takes, fairy tales, legends, urban tales, tall tales, small tales, cat tales, rat tales and just plain tales.

Roxie Zwicker, called "New England's Scary Godmother" by the Boston Herald and featured in The New York Times, is the published author of 7 books on New England's hidden history and mysterious tales. Some of Roxie's stories include haunted lighthouses, ghost ships, strange encounters with the unknown and haunted cemeteries. Her television appearances include New Hampshire Chronicle, The History Channel and the Travel Channel.

Cindy Duchin is a wonderfully gifted North Sandwich singer and songwriter, appearing regularly throughout the Lakes Region and beyond. Cindy incorporates music into her stories and also performs frequently on Friday evenings in the Corner House Pub.

Sandwich storyteller Vicky Dworkin shares her eclectic tales with the Corner House audience after years of cultivating her storytelling skills while living in Hawaii as well as New England. A member of the NH Storytelling Alliance, Vicky will be making her first appearance at the Corner House Inn's Storytelling Dinner program.

Lifelong NH resident Quinn Golden began public speaking nearly thirty years ago, learning along the way the value of weaving stories and fables into speaking engagements. Gradually the stories became more important than the topics. Quinn is also making his inaugural appearance at the Corner House's storytelling program.

Don’t miss this entertaining winter’s smorgasbord of storytellers and tales on Thursday, February 15th! The Storytelling Dinner begins at 6:30 PM, and includes salad, entree, dessert, coffee, and complimentary glass of wine. The cost is only $22.95 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Space is limited, so make your reservation now! For more information and reservations contact the Corner House in Center Sandwich at 284-6219, or online at info@cornerhouseinn.com.

Robert-Hill)Berlin, NH – December 21, 2017 - Bobby Hill recently joined the Mortgage Lending team at Northway Bank.  Bobby brings all that is needed in an effective team environment - passion, creativity, innovation, enthusiasm and forward-thinking leadership.

“We’re very excited to have Bobby join our mortgage lending team,” says Wendy Olson, Northway’s Mortgage Manager.  “Having lived in the North Country for over 14 years, Bobby has a deep connection and knows the people who live here. His passion and knowledge is invaluable.”

Bobby was most recently the General Sales Manager for Berlin City Chevrolet and has over 20 years of solid sales and marketing experience in the retail industry, including invaluable time as a loan officer while living in his native state of Vermont. He graduated from Nichols College with a four-year MBA in Marketing. He is an active member of the North Country Board of Realtors.

Being a well-known retail professional in the Berlin and Gorham area, Bobby shares “Having grown some very deep roots in the community, I am really looking forward to helping people make their new homes a reality.”
