Story Slam at Pitman’s Freight Room to benefit NH Humane Society

“Real Stories North Of Concord” presents a “story slam” on Thursday, July 13th at 7:00 pm at Pitman’s Freight Room in Laconia as a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Humane Society.

A “story slam” allows interested community members to share a real-life, personal story, 5-6 minutes in length, based on the theme for the evening. The theme for this Story Slam is: “It Seemed Like A Good Idea.”  Storytellers may register online or at the event, and twelve will be selected at random and have up to six minutes to tell their story. (Not all who have a story will be picked if more than 12 names are entered).

A panel of judges, some of whom may be selected from those in attendance, will judge the stories and prizes will be awarded. There will also be an audience favorite prize awarded.

Tickets are $15 and all proceeds will go to benefit the New Hampshire Humane Society.

More information can be found on “Real Stories North Of Concord” Facebook page. Those who are interested in telling a story can register in advance by sending their name to or register at the door the evening of the event (Registering does not guarantee that you will be picked.)  Seating is limited so call Pitman’s at 527-0043 for tickets.

The NH Humane Society is a privately funded 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to provide shelter for the lost, abandoned and unwanted animals; find responsible and caring forever homes for them, and; advocate and be the voice for the voiceless. The Society works hard to prevent cruelty to animals and offers education and outreach programs, pet therapy, and many community programs and initiatives to help responsible pet owners and their animals.
