The Glenbow Museum’s extensive collection of militaria and European decorative art was assembled by Lucie and Joachim Schuller. The Schullers used their personal collection of family heirlooms, augmented by auction and private purchases, to build a first-rate collection during the first half of the 20th century. In the early 1950’s, their collecting culminated in the opening of the Schuller Museum of Art and Chivalry, first near Belmont, and later near Laconia, New Hampshire. The Schullers marketed the collection as “The Million Dollar Show”, and advertised “The Largest Collection of Japanese Armour on Exhibition in the World”. Wishing to preserve their life’s work of collecting, they sold the collection to the Riveredge Foundation in 1973 and the museum was moved to Calgary.
Since the museum closed down it has been serving as a warehouse and the selectman thought it might soon be up for sale. It makes me wonder if it wouldn’t be the perfect home for the Church of the Sword.
It’s a brand new section of trail in Belmont which runs from Osborn’s Agway to the Route 3 By-pass. There is an Opening Celebration on September 17, which happens to be the day of our meeting. Come join us at 10:00 for the opening and meet some of the dedicated locals who have been working on getting the trail built.
We (me and anyone who wants to join in) have offered to extend our litter pickup to make a pass along the trail. Look for an opportunity to go through prior to opening day. Drop a comment if there is a convenient date for you.
This will be our second annual fellowship cookout in the heart of New Hampshire’s most beautiful region. Join the Lakes Region Porcupines and enjoy a day of fun at Ahern State Park in Laconia. There are plenty of hiking trails, two sandy beaches and plenty of space for your little ones and your doggies. There are no fees for the park or parking.
This event is our annual charity fund-raiser for the Center Harbor Food Pantry. For a $20 donation, you are giving the food pantry a way of feeding needy families from all over the lakes region. With that donation you’ll get yourself a fat burger, hotdog, chips and a drink. You’ll also get to taste Representative Glen Aldrich’s World Famous Potato Salad, which is worth the price of admission in itself. If you have kids no worries, they’re eating for free. We welcome dietary changes, and can work to accommodate you, just contact us. If you prefer to bring your own food, we simply ask that you provide the suggested donation of $10 so we can help out the Center Harbor Food Pantry.
We know the PorcFest hangover takes about a month. LRP Beach Day is just in time to reunite with those awesome people you met in June and have a day of swimming and hiking with new friends as well.
Tickets are $20, when you sign up through Eventbrite, for a donation and food, $10 for admission and donation or if you can’t make it and want to help anyways there’s an option for that too. We accept Paypal and Bitcoin as well, just get in touch with Tony at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you purchase at the door, we bump it up to $25. Save yourself $5 and commit now to a great day of liberty fellowship!

Spring is here (for real) and it’s time to hit the street. We’ll be doing our second litter pickup, on Sunday the 15th of May. We will start with breakfast at Shooter’s Tavern at 8:00 then hit the road. This will be a pretty quick clean up as we got things looking good last month.
On Monday May 16 at 8:30 a few of us will be at the Belknap Superior Court to hand out information to jurors. Real crimes have real victims. Unfortunately we have many statutes on the books which prohibit people from mutually consensual activities. In these cases jurors should know they are within their rights to vote their conscience.
Remember that the following Saturday, May 21, is our monthly meeting. As always, if you’re looking for all things liberty related in New Hampshire check out this calendar.
