Take a NH Staycation

STAYCATION: : a vacation spent at home or nearby*

Residents and visitors always have the same response when asked why they love New Hampshire “The four seasons are spectacular, and within a short drive you can reach a major city, climb beautiful mountains, or enjoy the ocean.” Why not make the most out of your summer vacation by exploring the adventures available in our backyard and have a NH staycation?

While you’re out there, “put your love for New Hampshire’s environment on the map.” The Department of Environmental Services wants to know “what you love about our environment, why you care about it, or what you’re doing to keep it clean.” Use #ThisIsNH and submit your photos at des.nh.gov to get your photo on the map!

The Immigrant/Refugee Experience

Tuesday – August 15, 2017
Town Hall, room 106

Q&A video thanks to GTV:

This documentary and discussion tackles the issues of belonging and citizenship.

“Uprooted: Heartache and Hope in New Hampshire” is a 30 minute documentary following the story of five refugees who were resettled in NH. Produced by the Center for the Humanities at the University of New Hampshire, the film explores what it means to be a refugee and how it feels to make a new life in a strange place. A Q&A session immediately follows the film.

Guest speaker Suraj Budathoki, recipient of the Union Leader’s 40 Under 40 Award, shares his experiences as a Bhutanese refugee who now make his home in this state. He was joined by Eva Castillo, 2017 MLK Award winner and executive director of NH Alliance for Immigrants and Refugees.
