Driving Accountability in your Organization

Driving Accountability in your Organization
Accountability in an organization is just as important as anything else people do on the job. It means that every single team member has made a personal commitment to meet or exceed the company's goals. It's not a bullet point on a job description but rather a mentality embodied by all. In this environment, employees never stop asking themselves, "What else can I do to ensure that I am performing at optimal levels?" And it starts at the top… with the Leader.
In this workshop, you will learn:
· What a culture of accountability or non-accountability looks like
· How you build a culture of accountability
· What it takes to reset a company culture
The single event cost for this May 17th seminar is $20, and all of the proceeds will be donated to The Plymouth Recovery Center (a non-profit organization that will support post-recovery support and counseling for those who have walked the opioid addiction path.

Step Up and Stop Hunger


When:
Saturday, May 20, 2017 8:30 AM thru 04:30 PM
Where:

The Littleton Area Senior Center (LASC) is again hosting the Annual Walkathon to raise vital funds for Meals on Wheels.  The Step Up · Stop Hunger 2017 Meals on Wheels Walkathon will take place on Saturday, May 20th, 2017, at the Littleton Area Senior Center at 77 Riverglen Lane in Littleton, NH.  


Staff, volunteers, and friends from the Grafton County Senior Centers: Plymouth, Bristol, Lincoln, Canaan, North Haverhill, Lebanon, and Orford, as well as ServiceLink Resource Center of Grafton County and RSVP will congregate in Littleton to participate in the many activities planned for the day. Community members of all ages are welcome to join in on the fun!


Festivities will begin with a delicious pancake breakfast from 8-10 AM for a small fee.  Registration begins at 8:30 AM, with the walk commencing at 10 AM.  There are two routes from which to choose – a short one-mile walk and a three-mile walk through the quaint town of Littleton.  Water stations will be available for walkers along the way. Additionally, the senior buses will be making regular runs along the route to pick up any tired walkers.


The first 200 walkers and volunteers to register will receive a participation wristband, which will entitle them to a favor bag, a t-shirt, and a complimentary BBQ lunch after the walk.  Everyone is welcome to enjoy the meal for a nominal cost.


Activities for all ages have been planned throughout the day to celebrate the power of community, to support our elder neighbors as well as to raise awareness of the issues of isolation, and hunger among our elderly population. Smokey the Bear and McGruff the Crime Dog will be present for photos.  Additionally, there will be face painting, music, assorted raffles, area vendors, a bake sale, and other surprises.


Meals on Wheels provides a valuable service to area seniors.  Not only does this resource provide meals to frail older adults, but it also is a source of compassionate community brought to the homes of this vulnerable population.  In 2016, Grafton County Senior Citizens Council, Inc. (GCSCC) provided 130,000 meals through the Meals on Wheels program, serving over 8,500 older adults in every town in Grafton County.


The Step Up · Stop Hunger 2017 Meals on Wheels Walkathon raises vital and necessary funds, and is a great opportunity to celebrate community, to recognize and celebrate the dedication of home-delivered meal cooks, and hundreds of volunteer drivers and delivery folks, all of whom generously give of their time, energy, and resources to make the program affordable and personal.


Many people walk to honor a grandparent, an older friend, a relative who is unable to walk, or in memory of a loved one.  Others walk simply to support a great cause, and have fun in the process. It is a chance to get out on a spring day and enjoy the beautiful Littleton area. Sponsorships, volunteers, vendors and cheerleaders are welcome and needed. GCSCC greatly appreciates the generosity and involvement of the community.


Consider organizing a team of family members, co-workers or friends; get your service club involved; walk as an individual.  Away at college or not in the area that day, no problem!  This year we are encouraging virtual walkers as well. You can even walk on your treadmill and contribute the funds collected to the Meals on Wheels Program.


Please plan to join us on May 20th.  For more information, contact the Grafton County Senior Center nearest you, visit www.gcscc.org, call Alicia Connors at 603-484-4897, or call Carole Zangla at 603-444-6050.


This walkathon is one of several Step Up · Stop Hunger events hosted throughout the state by the New Hampshire Coalition of Aging Services on May 20th to support Meals on Wheels programs.

Pine Fest—A Pine Barrens Multicultural Celebration

Pine Fest—A Pine Barrens Multicultural Celebration
Pine Fest, the multicultural celebration of the magical woods around us, will be celebrating its fourth year Saturday, May 20, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Charge Pond in Myles Standish State Forest.

A day full of entertainment! Big Ryan’s Tall Tales—a favorite of young children—starts at 11 a.m., followed at noon by the first of two small animal shows by the South Shore Natural Science Center. Marla’s Raptors are un-hooded at 12:45, and the small animal show repeats at 2 p.m.

The people of the Aquinnah Wampanoag will be setting up a fish camp along the shore of Charge Pond again this year, building it from pine boughs in the morning, starting fires and smoking fish. If you are still around at the end of the day head down to the pond and have a taste of smoked striper or bluefish (or fresh smoked herring).

Also cooking, though not edible at the end, will be a 19th century charcoal pit—designed to imitate the hundreds of similar pits that, 200 years ago, darkened the skies outside of Plymouth. Charcoal was once an important ‘crop’, filling the purses of Pilgrim descendants with coin and filling the dozens of local forges with a product that allowed them to produce iron objects including cannonball and shot for a growing country.

This year you can add the squeals of Barnabas and his sister Lucille to the music of Pine Fest; two rescued pot bellied pigs that now call the Black Feather Horse Rescue farm their home. Darlene Nickerson, Black Feather’s founder, will be bringing the two gregarious pot-bellied pigs and a pair of miniature horses as well, joining a menagerie of wild things that you will find at this year’s Pine Fest.

Nemasket Kayak Center will offer free kayaking lessons in the pond. Buckley Family Archery will teach you how to use a bow and arrow. Over 40 activity stations will provide hours of fun, hands-on activities for children and adults! For the more serious, Meet the Scientist (this year, famed restoration ecologist Tim Simmons) and much more. Ethnic foods by Tasteful Adventures and Ice Cream treats from Perry’s Last Stand will make your day complete. Beachhouse Baking and the Plymouth Woodchucks toy makers will join a host of other vendors of natural and homemade products.

Pine Fest is meant to be a regional exploration of the forested ecosystem that stretches from Southeastern Massachusetts to Cape Cod and the Islands. Bring your bike if you like, park at Fearing Pond (about a mile away) and pedal to Pine Fest on a paved path through the woods. There are also a number of wonderful hikes in the area, many passing by the ecosystems’ unique coastal plain ponds and vernal pools.

Pine Fest is free for the public, and takes place in one of the most beautiful spots in the area. If the sun is out you can swim in Charge Pond. Though it’s deep in the woods, and part of the Myles Standish State Forest, Charge Pond has a variety of amenities including bathrooms, which make it perfect for a family outing. Pine Fest is fully accessible.

Southeastern Massachusetts Pine Barrens Alliance is proud to have the financial support of eleven local cultural councils, the Massachusetts Cultural Council Festivals Program, the Town of Plymouth Promotions Fund, Badger Wilderness Guides and the Friends of Myles Standish State Forest. Thanks to all!

Saturday, May 20, 2017 10:00 AM thru 04:00 PM

Pirate's Ashore in Plymouth

A unique event unlike any others in downtown Plymouth, Pirates Ashore in Plymouth is an exciting, educational, all-day reenactment of the visit of three pirate ships to Plymouth in May of 1646 as described in Governor William Bradford’s “Of Plimoth Plantation”.

The “pirates” were English privateers, just back from capturing a number of Spanish ships in the Caribbean, flush with cargo and cash. The ships were welcomed to Plymouth and stayed for about a month spending money freely, drinking, and fighting. One particular fight resulted in the death of a sailor and the trial of the privateer Captain for murder!

Joining the New Plimmoth Gard as English privateers will be local maritime reenactor groups The Crew of the MermaydeThe Crew of the Raven and the Free Men of the Sea

The day starts with Old Colony Club members firing their cannon to signal the arrival of the privateers. Visitors are welcomed to The Mayflower Society grounds 10 AM to 4 PM to meet the pirates causing trouble in Plymouth Colony. The house will be open for tours. A detailed schedule of the days events will be available soon.
