20th Annual Ice Carving Competition held at The Wentworth

This past Monday January 5th, the whole of Mount Washington Valley surely felt the chill in the air. Mother Nature was gracing us with her presence of fresh snow and cold temperatures which aided to the snow-making at local New England ski areas. Here in the quaint village of Jackson we featured an annual tradition to help combat the cold.  

The 20th Annual Great Ice Carvers Invitational Ice Carving Competition began at 10:00 am on that sun filled Monday morning. Seven extremely talented gentleman, Dennis Hickey, Stephen Kesheb, Shawn Grenier, David Soho, Murray Long, John Shew, and Wayne Miller, were given a large block of ice and asked to create their masterpiece.

As passerby’s stopped to admire the men at work with their chainsaws, flat chisels, ice knifes and various bits and grinding tools, one could see that these blocks of ice were being transformed into beautiful works of art.

Once the judges met to tally the votes, a signature Wentworth Luncheon was offered and the competitors could finally sit back and enjoy the view. It was a spectacular day to be in Jackson Village, New Hampshire.

First Place: Shawn Grenier
Second Place: Murray Long
Third Place: John Shew

We hope to see you all next year at the 21st Annual Ice Carving Competition!

Christmas Can Cure: A Memorable Event

“The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier
who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war”
 – Douglas MacArthur

Christmas Can Cure Logo

On Monday, December 15th, the Wentworth had the honor of participating
in an evening event: Christmas Can Cure. This spectacular event was the closing gathering for chosen Veterans and their families, and individuals who volunteered to help make their Christmas memorable. The gift of uplifting the human spirit continues on daily for the rest of our lives. The lowering of the flag Tuesday morning was a memorable ending for the Christmas Can Cure event. This organization has a complex
mission, one that with enough assistance from community members, can continue
to strengthen our heroes. Originally formed by Jackson New Hampshire native,
Dr. Gerald Carrier and his family, it has grown into something magical for the families who participate and for those volunteering their time.

Christmas Can Cure sets out to provide safe and healthy environments for the chosen Veterans and their families to experience the magic of the perfect Christmas. Through the partnership with The Wounded Warriors Project, this year’s mission focused on
two families, which consisted of three Veterans. The recipe for healing began with elegant accommodations for the two families at our Inn, The Wentworth. Once settled in, a delicious buffet was served for supper and the Veteran’s and their families had the chance to unwind and begin to ease into the new surroundings. A flag raising ceremony followed the next morning, and then the mission truly took flight. Over the next few days, activities and experiences that the Veterans thought would never be possible again, were made reality. Activities included ice skating, spa treatments, alpine skiing, casually strolling the downtown North Conway shopping district, Polar Express rides to meet Santa Clause, winter tubing, barber shop visits, and even date night. The goal was to create a place where mental and physical strain took a back seat and it was successful.

Veterans all over the world have suffered, witnessed, and experienced severe difficulties. The Wounded Warrior Project and Christmas Can Cure offer a helping hand for those Veterans.

They deserve to be honored, cherished and helped through their healing process, and this is exactly what these organizations offer. More information about The Wounded Warrior Project can be found at http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/#  , and for the Christmas Can Cure at http://www.christmascancure.org/aboutthemission/ .

“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the
present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow
with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace”
 - Agnes M. Pharo

The entire Wentworth Staff would like to thank all Veterans and current members serving in the military. Their unwavering service to our precious country and the protection that they give, deserves a sincere thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
