Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  Entering its 6th year, this global movement is fueled by the power of social media. Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.  There’s certainly no shortage of causes to give to; hurricanes, floods and wildfires, just to name a few. But there are also many organizations right in our own communities in need of financial and volunteer support.  Giving Tuesday is a great time to consider giving back locally. Northern New Hampshire is blessed with a diverse group of organizations aimed at a variety of social causes such as housing, medical care, fuel assistance, child care and providing food. In NH, Granite United Way has developed a website to search specific services in different areas of the state, 211nh.org.

The Flume Gorge

The Flume is a natural gorge extending 800 feet at the base of Mount Liberty. The walls of Conway granite rise to a height of 70 to 90 feet and are 12 to 20 feet apart. A trip into the Flume begins and ends at the Flume Visitor's Center. Guests can choose to walk through just the Gorge or do a two-mile loop. The walk includes uphill walking and lots of stairs. The boardwalk allows you to look closely at the growth of flowers, ferns and mosses found here.

C. Randolph Trainor Interiors

As an interior designer, C. Randolph Trainor Interior’s mission is to help you create rooms that reflect your taste and that work for you, whether they are in your primary or second home, your clubhouse or your office. On your behalf, they collaborate with tradesmen, contractors and construction teams, and schedule the material. 

They also act as your advocate, so that the project runs smoothly, you use your funds wisely, and the outcome is absolutely stunning. Together, you will make timely, dollar-wise and strategic decisions for results that bring joy for years to come.

CRT-designed rooms are not fussy and overdesigned. They leave room for each client’s history, personality and input: they design for people and their living requirements, not for the pages of a magazine. When we complete a project, our clients can walk into a space and immediately feel a sense of comfort and ease. Lamps are at the right height for reading, artwork hung for the best effect, and furniture grouped so that it works well for the inhabitants. They also provide healthy and eco-friendly options to minimize toxicity levels and to create a more responsibly designed environment.
