Dinner on the Cheap

Our old friend Paul DeAngelis stopped by last week - yes, that's right, we have old friends; the Insider began life nearly a year back - to ask that we spread the word about the 8th Annual Concord Boys & Girls Club Alumni Dinner.
It's going to be held at the club on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m., and it's open to anyone, whether you're an alum or not. (The club is at 55 Bradley St., as if you didn't know that already.)

Leaf peeping pays off

In an attempt to rope in out-of-state tourists, the New Hampshire Historical Society is offering free admission to the society's Museum of New Hampshire History for all those who visit the White Mountains this fall. All you need is a receipt from any area hotel, attraction, restaurant, gift shop or gas station.

What to do when being chased by wild animals

Remember the photo of the two bears from last week? That was from photographer Dirk van der Merwe, whose work is on display at N.H. Audubon's McLane Center, 3 Silk Farm Road.
We wanted to find out more about the man behind the camera, so we sent him some deep questions to ponder.

Do you have a favorite place to visit? Ihaha on the Chobe River in Botswana, Ibo Island in Mozambique, the Kuiseb River in the Namib Desert. (It might be time to brush up on our world geography. Was that answer in English?)

Smarty-pants dogs graduate with honors

The New Hampshire Department of Corrections recently held a graduation ceremony for two service dogs.
The dogs were trained by inmates at the New Hampshire State Prison as part of a partnership with Pathways to Hope of Casco, Maine.
A third dog participated in the 18-month program, but did not complete training. It was given an honorable discharge and permitted to attend the ceremony. That dog will be placed in a home in the Concord area.
The Insiders gave the graduates and almost-graduate caps to mark the occasion. So yes, the photo was tampered with. But only a little.
