‘Tis the Season for Celebrating the NH Economy

‘Tis the season to be jolly and we were this week as we marked the 18th year we’ve hosted the Division of Economic Development annual meeting (with generous sponsorship from our friends at Public Service of New Hampshire.
We had a capacity crowd at the Inn at Church Landing in Meredith, we had great speakers … in all it was a great day.
Part of the fun was the awards presentation, recognizing all the good people, the great cooperation and the terrific work accomplished in the New Hampshire economy.

So without further ado:
