Third Grade Program a Success!

Every year we host a bevy of 3rd graders on a field trip to historical sites in Portsmouth as a finale to our Education Department’s year-long history program in local classrooms. Despite the challenge of being entirely outdoors this year, our program was a great success! Many thanks to everyone who worked hard to give these kids a fun day!

NH Gave!

Thank you to the donors, sponsors, and partners of the NH Gives event, especially the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation for organizing! Nearly $4 million was raised by over 14,000 donors for 584 different non-profits in the state of New Hampshire!
