Hundred Nights Homeless Shelter’s 5th Annual Masquerade Ball Happening March 19th!


Hundred Nights

For the fifth time, the Hundred Nights homeless shelter and resource center will be holding its annual Masquerade Ball fundraiser event and I’m excited to be able to sponsor it again on behalf of the Shire Free Church and Free Keene! The event is happening March 19th at the Best Western Ballroom from 7:30pm to Midnight and is always a good time.  Contact Hundred Nights for tickets.

Funds raised will continue to support Hundred Nights’ important operations for the least fortunate in our community, which include the Cold Weather Shelter that opened for the season on November 26, 2015. For the hundred coldest nights of the year, the shelter provides clean beds in a warm and safe space to the homeless in our area who have no place else to go. Between November 26 and December 31, 2015 801 bed-nights of shelter were provided to 76 unique individuals.

The Open Doors Resource and Drop-In Center is open year-round from 9am to 4pm on weekdays to anyone in need of a cup of coffee, lunch, access to a phone, fax or computer, laundry facilities and some friendly conversation. In the afternoons there are often classes or presentations on a variety of topics from bicycle repair to anger management. During 2015 there were 533 unique visitors to the Resource Center who came in a total of 11,751 times. In addition dinner is served there on weekends and holidays. During 2015 over 4,000 meals were provided.

Hundred Nights has a positive impact on people’s lives, and I’m glad to have the church support its operations. You can donate to Hundred Nights via their website. If you want to help sponsor the 2016 Masquerade Ball, take a look at this document for details.

  1. Does Hundred Nights accept Bitcoin?

  2. This is interesting. I called the place and they said you haven’t sponsored it this year as of yet. Also, I looked at their past events and I do not see your name anywhere.

  3. FlapJacks always complaining

  4. Ah, Jacks. You’ll never tell the truth when a lie will do.

    I’m curious, Jacks. When you made that phone call, was it from one of the six drug addiction clinics that you own? Or was it seven clinics? I can’t keep track.

  5. @Drac: You’re being unfair. Watching six episodes of “Intervention” on cable is exactly the same as owning six rehab centers.

    It’s still amusing that he let slip the source of his fantasy.

  6. Not yet, Todd.

  7. Hey look kids, it’s the draccc, and flinty show, supporting asshat libertards in your community!
    Brought to you in part by, who gives a shit.

  8. @Bsizzle: Homeless shelters are “asshat libertards,” in your sick world?

  9. Indeed, Flint. Quite deplorable. I shudder to think of the twisted thoughts Bsizzle’s had that he hasn’t chosen to share here.

  10. “Indeed, flint” so which one gives, and which one receives between the two of you? Wow, lol. If you look in the mirror, that is an asshat libertard, I never said homeless shelters are, stop trying to reach with my comment.

  11. You do understand, Bsizzle, this isn’t a dating site do you? Don’t you think it’s a tad undignified to be asking everyone who replies to you by name as to whether they’re gay or not? If you really need to find a boyfriend so badly, why don’t you direct your search to places that are specifically designed to cater to your specific sexual preferences? Surely there are bars in your neighborhood that offer whatever sexual gratification it is that you’re seeking? Don’t you think you’d have better luck propositioning men in those places than you’ve had here?

  12. What the fuck are you talking about, draccc? Wow, truly delusional.

  13. You frequently ask odd questions such as “which one gives, and which one receives”, and the like, Bsizzle. Most heterosexual men don’t like to imagine two men being together in that way and they certainly don’t like to write about it in the detailed way you clearly seem to find gratifying. These vivid descriptions of yours are giving me the impression that you are in fact a homosexual yourself, Bsizzle.

    This is not the sort of forum you should be using to seek out partners for your homosexual encounters, Bsizzle. There are plenty of other places where you can do that. Maybe you focus your search in those places instead of flaunting your proclivities in here. I think you’ll discover that you’ll have better luck elsewhere than you will in here.

  14. Ewwwww……what does that have to do with homeless shelters draccc? Truly delusional thinking.

  15. You’re obviously overcompensating here to avoid feeling ashamed of what you are. Do you think that it’s fooling anyone, Bsizzle?

  16. OMG shut the fuck up draccc, this blog is about the homeless not homosexuals draccc, it was a rhetorical question about you and flinty, yah fucking douche. Your fucking gross and off topic, yah fucking asshat, GOD!
    Sincerely, Mr. Who gives a shit what draccc says.. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  17. Since you’ve just admitted yourself that this subject is completely immaterial to the topic at hand, Bsizzle, then why did you decide to provide compelling evidence of your homosexual urges in the first place? Don’t you think that the consternation your expressing now is obviously completely unfounded?

  18. Draccc, you can stop it with the homosexual urges comments, it was a rhetorical comment. You really are that stupid with libertard rage. You can’t help yourself, so get back in your hole, draccc.
    This latest rant made my wife and children laugh, along with my crew at work, their also getting a chuckle out of this.
    Sincerely, who cares…

  19. Don’t you think it’s odd to be asking those sorts of rhetorical questions to people you don’t know, Bsizzle? I’d like to believe you, but since you frequently ask these sorts of questions it really makes me doubt your word on this. The fact that you keep clicking that “Reply” button to deny it isn’t helping your case either. Also, looking back, I can’t help but think that your insistence that you “always go for the jugular” might actually have been some sort of homosexual euphemism instead. No Bsizzle, I really don’t believe your explanation at all. You’re going to have to present to me a some more compelling evidence. Claiming you have a wife and kids just isn’t enough to sway me into believing you. After all, it’s not uncommon for closeted homosexuals to marry and have kids. I’ll need something more convincing. I’ll await your evidence in your next reply.

  20. What does have to do with homeless people? Looks like I got in draccc’s head again. Notice no one else is posting here. It’s a big waste of time, eh draccc? Looks like you can’t take a joke, eh draccc?
    Where is the detective jabs that you like to swing at me, draccc? Can you keep it up here, with the questions, draccc? No pun intended! Lmao….

  21. I’m starting to think that you don’t have any evidence that your comment was “just a joke”, Bsizzle, other than your own word of course. But your word has no weight with me, so that’s not very convincing.

    The problem is that you’re just not choosing the right sort of outlet with which to gratify your sexual frustrations. For some reason you think it’s appropriate to seek those gratifications here where your advances unlikely to be reciprocated, possibly because your embarrassed about what you are. I don’t know how to help you this, Bsizzle. Perhaps it’s time you sought some psychiatric counseling?

  22. Again draccc is not answering any of my questioning. I’m not surprised. Draccc can’t help himself, it’s kind of pathetic really.

  23. Which questions are those, Bsizzle? Those involving your sexual identity? I can’t answer those questions, Bsizzle, only you can.

  24. My questions from the 29th? Scroll up and take a look. Nothing to do with sexual ethnicity, that was rhetorical question that draccc can’t handle, and is projecting it as far as he can. What a waste of time.

  25. You’re sporting a few new terms today, Bsizzle. While I’m familiar with the concept of psychological projection, your other one is baffling to me. What exactly is “sexual ethnicity”, Bsizzle. Is there a nation populated entirely of homosexuals out there somewhere? Might I suggest you look up the word “malapropism”, Bsizzle? I think you might find the meaning of that word to be quite interesting.

    It’s also very telling that you use an accusation of psychological projection to defend your behavior, Bsizzle. Since this thread was concerned about the subject of the Hundred Nights homeless shelter, your question asking “which one gives, and which one receives” was very out of place. I don’t believe that comment was meant to be rhetorical either, Bsizzle. If you weren’t asking that question for the purposes of stimulating some sort of sexual rendezvous, than I must conclude that you were instead attributing your own homosexual urges to others as a way of dealing with the shame you feel about your own homosexual proclivities.

  26. Draccc, what the fuck are you talking about? What does this have to do with homeless shelters? Keep on topic here. Have you looked in the mirror lately? What do you see? Lmao

  27. You’re funny, Bsizzle. You reveal the fact that you have homosexual tendencies by attempting to proposition some of the bloggers here, and then you complain that the topic has changed?

  28. Right, draccc, right. So I guess it’s not a rhetorical question? So I guess I’ll ask it again seeing that I’m a “homosexual” in your warped little mind. So between you and flinty, which one gives and which one receives? Do you give to the hundred nights homeless shelter, or do you receive goods and services from them? Like how I did that you loopy libertard?
    What a waste of time. ……

  29. Wait for it, wait for it…..

  30. Ah Bsizzle. You’re such a delight. You’re just like a ukulele… so easy to play…

  31. ??????? No response! Pathetic! You’ve got nothing. …

  32. On the contrary, Bsizzle, I’ve gotten more confirmation from you that I’m all it is that you ever think about.

  33. Like shooting fish in a barrel! “On the contrary ” lmao. Get a glue.

  34. Glue? That wasn’t another a Freudian slip, was it Bsizzle? You don’t huff glue, do you? I surely hope not, but I guess that would explain the obvious indications of brain damage you frequently display here. Well, I’ll leave you to your huffing then. Don’t forget to take a break for lunch! Oh, and when you come down from your high, feel free to post some different idioms from the early 1900s. That particular idiom of yours is getting a little worse for wear. You’ll have to start mixing things up a little more if you want to keep going for the jugular, Bsizzle.

  35. ????? Lmao, you draccc are truly delusional. I’m hoping other rational people see this.

  36. What happened to draccc? I hope his 90 year old Romanian heart didn’t give out? Aw, poor little entitled Romanian!
