Moment-um is an active senior adult program that meets regularly on Mondays. This program is open to residents of Gilford and the surrounding communities.
PLEASE RSVP to the Gilford Parks and Recreation Department at least by the Thursday prior to each event (unless otherwise specified) by calling the office at 527-4722.
**While it is important that everyone call to RSVP for each program, it is equally important that everyone call to cancel if you know you will be unable to make it. We plan and shop for all of our programs, and when individuals just fail to show up, it costs our Department money and impacts our budget. So we ask that everyone please try to cooperate when it comes to your RSVP and/or your cancellation. THANK YOU!
July 9 – Lunch at Walter’s Basin /Explore Squam Lake Boat Tour
Please come and join us for a day on Squam Lake! We will meet at the Gilford Town Hall at 10:45 AM to carpool to Holderness to enjoy an 11:30 AM lunch at Walter’s Basin Restaurant. This will be followed up with a 1:30 PM boat tour of Squam Lake. Learn about the history of the lake, the unique wildlife, and see locations from the movie “On Golden Pond.” We hope to view some loons, bald eagles, and enjoy the simple beauty of the lake from a covered pontoon boat. There will be binoculars available for anyone who wishes. The boat tour is 90 minutes long. The cost of the tour is $22.00 per person, and we will collect this ahead of time from everyone at the Town Hall. Participants will need to cover the cost of their own lunch as well (separate checks). Be sure to bring your cameras!!
**Please note that the trip is rain or shine, as the boat is covered.
PLEASE RSVP NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, JULY 5.
