New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan has declared March to be “Music in our Schools Month” and Conway’s Kennett High School’s Drumline is celebrating with a series of three concerts starting Friday.
2014: A Drum Odyssey, will be presented at 7 p.m. at the school’s Loynd Auditorium March 7 and March 8 – and again on Saturday, March 15 2014. A $5 donation to support the music program is requested, and children under 5 years old will get in free.
Music Director Dr. Therese Davison says this year’s seniors have led the Drumline to a new level of proficiency in technique, arranging, composing, showmanship and creativity – and she hopes high school alumni will turn out in large numbers for Alumni Night March 15 and participate in the final number of the production.
The 2014 show is based on a theme of space, time and technology – and features 42 drummers.

THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE HAS GIVEN APPROVAL FOR NORTH CONWAY’S MEMORIAL HOSPITAL TO JOIN THE MAINE BASED HEALTHCARE SYSTEM MAINEHEALTH.
MEMORIAL HOSPITAL CEO SCOTT McKINNON SAYS IT’S THE LAST STEP IN A 2-YEAR EFFORT BY THE HOSPITAL TO MERGE WITH MAINEHEALTH – AND AFTER A LICENSE IS TRANSFERRED, MEMORIAL WILL OFFICIALLY BECOME A MEMBER OF MAINEHEALTH JAN. 1, 2014.
McKINNON SAYS MAINEHEALTH – INCLUDING ITS FLAGSHIP MAINE MEDICAL CENTER IN PORTLAND -IS RANKED AMONG THE TOP 100 INTEGRATED DELIVERY NETWORKS IN THE U.S. – MEMORIAL NOW BECOMES ITS 12TH MEMBER ORGANIZATION.
McKINNON SAYS HE FEELS VERY GOOD ABOUT IT BECAUSE OTHER HOSPITALS ARE JUST BEGINNING THE PROCESS AFTER RECOGNIZING THE NEED TO BECOME PART OF A STRONGER SYSTEM.
THERE WAS LIMITED OPPOSITION TO THE MERGER PLAN FROM THE VALLEY COMMUNITY, WITH MOST QUESTIONS COMING ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF LOSING LOCAL CONTROL.
FORMER MEMORIAL HOSPITAL BOARD MEMBER GEORGE EPSTEIN STRONGLY OPPOSED THE DEAL AND SPOKE AGAINST IT AT TWO PUBLIC MEETINGS AND IN PUBLISHED COMMENTS.
EPSTEIN ESSENTIALLY ARGUED MEMORIAL WOULD CEDE LOCAL CONTROL IF IT WENT THROUGH WITH THE DEAL AND WOULD NOT GAIN ANYTHING FROM THE ARRANGEMENT.
McKINNON SAYS MEMORIAL WILL REALIZE MANY BENEFITS BY BEING A MEMBER OF MAINEHEALTH, INCLUDING GETTING ASSISTANCE TO DEVELOP COMMUNITY HEALTH PROGRAMS – TO GREATER QUALITY INITIATIVES AND COST EFFICIENCIES.
