Don’t miss this! E.K. Beer Event April 26th

Tickets to taste great BEER at the Neighborhood Beer Company are going fast!

The Friends of the East Kingston Public Library will host a special evening at Exeter’s newest (and only) craft beer brewery on Tuesday, April 26 from 7:00 to 10:00 pm at the Neighborhood Beer Company tasting room, featuring a special presentation by Horst Dornbusch, internationally-recognized beer industry consultant, and Neighborhood’s own braumeister.

The event will begin with a welcome, followed by Horst’s entertaining and informative presentation, tours of the brewery with a question-and-answer session. Of course, there will be a sampler of four of the beers currently on offer, and once you’ve picked a favorite, an opportunity to purchase a pint at the cash bar, or a growler to take home.

Horst Dornbusch is an internationally-known authority on beer, an award-winning beer author and brewer, and as he boasts, a “multilingual beer raconteur.” He is fluently bilingual in English and German and knows enough French and Spanish, he says, “to get himself into trouble.” A frequent contributor to many international beer publications, he was honored in 2002 with the Golden Quill and Tankard Award by the North American Guild of Beer Writers for best feature on brewing. He has been a guest on national and local radio shows and podcasts. His book titles include: the two Classic Beer Style volumes, Altbier and Bavarian Helles; Prost! The Story of German Beer; and most recently Beer Styles from Around the World.
Early on in the development of Neighborhood Beer Company, the three founders – Joe Berwanger, President; Mike O’Donnell, Chief Marketing Officer; and, Tim Diaz, Chief Operating Officer – seized on an opportunity to have Horst come on board as VP and Creative Director.
The tasting room opened it’s doors last September, offering “Classic German Beers with an American Twist!” After 7 months, it continues to fulfill that promise with Horst’s interpretations of a Kölsch from Cologne, an Altbier from Dusseldorf, an “imperialized” Bavarian Forest Dampfbier, a German Imperial Oatmeal Schwarzbier, a Bavarian Dunkel and a Rhineland Dopplesticke recently rated 95 points on BeerAdvocate! Neighborhood’s beers are available in nearly 50 locations around the Seacoast, and are quickly developing a solid reputation in local craft beer circles. Check them out at http://nhbeerco.com, or on https://www.facebook.com/neighborhoodbeer.
The evening promises to be highly entertaining and informative for everyone from beer aficionados and those new to the craft beer scene. The Neighborhood Beer Company tasting room is located at 156 Epping Road (Route 27) in Exeter. We will start promptly at 7:00 pm, so get there early. Tickets are available only at the East Kingston Public Library, and will be limited to the first 40 persons to register and pay. The cost will be $15 per person ($10 for Friends members), including the presentation, tour, a sampler flight of four beers, and a souvenir from the brewery.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the East Kingston Public Library as part of our mission to provide quality entertaining and informative programs for the people of East Kingston.

Learn the Secrets to a Healthy Back!

Join back specialist and physical therapist, Dr. Carrie Jose to learn how you can reduce or eliminate back pain in your life on Wednesday, April 13, 2016, 6:30 pm at the East Kingston Public Library, 47 Maplevale Rd, East Kingston, NH.

Sadly, ten percent of primary care visits and $86 billion in annual healthcare costs are due to back pain. Back pain is also one of the leading causes of disability and lost work. Does an aching back keep you up at night? Does back pain keep you from doing things you love? Are you afraid to exercise? Do time-consuming doctor visits only give you temporary relief? Then this talk is for you! Carrie will teach you how you can reduce or eliminate back pain in your life.

You will learn the common reasons for everyday back pain and how to prevent it; the truth about sitting and how it affects your back, the importance of having a strong core and balanced pelvis and how they both help you reduce the risk of back injury, and the one simple exercise that will improve your flexibility and help you prevent back pain.

While four out of five people will experience back pain at some point in their lives, there is good news – rarely is back pain serious, and in most cases it is completely preventable!

To find out more about Dr. Carrie Jose visit her website at www.Cjphysicaltherapy.com.

This talk is brought to you by the Friends of the East Kingston Public Library and is free of charge.

Help Wanted: Friends Needing Friends

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution to “give back” or to “get more involved”? The Friends of the East Kingston Public Library needs you!
We have immediate openings for volunteers in several positions:

The Pound School Used Book shop is open two shifts on Fridays (10:00 am to 1:30 pm and 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm) and one on Saturdays (10:00 am to 1:00 pm). The shop is staffed by volunteers who typically work only one shift each month. We need a few more names to add to our schedule list.

Our Programs Committee is in need of new members. If you’ve ever enjoyed one of the great programs put on by the Friends at the Library, here’s a good opportunity to get more involved. The committee meets one morning a month for 2 hours at the Library.

Also, the Programs Committee is currently without a leader, a must-have for us to continue offering the quality programming at the Library for which we are known. If you have managerial skills, this is a super opportunity for you to give back. In addition to the monthly committee meetings, the chair participates in the quarterly Friends board meetings.

Finally, the Friends Board of Management urgently needs a Secretary. Major responsibilities include taking and publishing meeting minutes (we meet once a quarter in the evening at the Pound School), as well as organizing and maintaining our Corporate Record Book. If you have some secretarial skills, this is a great opportunity for you to get more involved.

If one of these openings is of interest, please contact President Ted Lloyd for more information. He can be reached by email (ted@onepinewoods.us) or by phone at (603) 479-7073 If you’re not currently a Friends member, no problem! We can quickly sign you up. Our annual dues are only $15 — the best donation deal in town!
