What's Going On In Farmington? Puddledock Press Calendar

We noticed that many new people move to Farmington during this time of year and are looking for easy ways to find out what is happening in our town or in the surrounding area. The Puddledock Press Around the Town Calendar is put together, via submission, by the Puddledock Press, the local town "good news,' non-profit, newspaper. It has an agenda view, month view or week view, depending on how you'd like to view the info. It lists local and regional events, nothing broader than that. It is a great way to find out what is going on. The Goodwin Library has a calendar and has a great number of events monthly for children, teens and for adults. There events are free and open to the public. The Town of Farmington has a site with tons of general and specific information, and a calendar as well, with all municipal events, board meetings, etc included. The town also provides an option to be notified for various municipal happenings via e-mail and text message.  It is best to find any Farmington school information on the SAU 61 site. As you can imagine there is always something going on at one of the schools, their after school activities, or summer programs. Farmington also has two Facebook groups the Farmington Community News and the Farmington Community Forum. The main difference between the two, beyond the number of members, is that the News is for, just that news and information.The forum is the place for broader discussion or controversy. Many of non-profits in town have their own websites and social media pages and the town website has a page, created by the Economic Development Committee, devoted to a listing of businesses & services in town. We hope this will help you find some of the things you need. Welcome to Farmington, NH!

Transgender Equality Rally 7/29

Rights & Democracy is excited to officially announce our Transgender* Equality Rally! On Saturday 7/29, our allies and LGBT+ community is coming together to celebrate the beautiful diversity of our the Granite State. We're meeting at Victory Park in Manchester to blow bubbles, play lawn games, dance to music and build a sense of collective identity.

More than ever before, transgender nondiscrimination protections in New Hampshire are vital to the health and well being of our communities statewide. In early 2017, we came really close to winning these protections and passing a comprehensive state law that would legally protect our transgender family and friends from discrimination.

We think that all of our hardwork and the incredible momentum that we're building together is worth celebrating. Join us on Saturday 7/29 to celebrate, socialize and strategize our next steps.

2017 SCDC Picnic Photos & Recap

We had a wonderful day at the 2017 Strafford County Democratic Committee picnic. Good food and even better company. It was at Miller Farm, in New Durham, again this year; a perfect setting, and a we were lucky to have the most beautiful summer weather, with a slight breeze all day. Highlights for the speakers were Executive Councilor Andru Volinsky and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter. The grande finale was getting to meet and listen to Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a person known for being outspoken and not one to shy away from unpopular themes. She connected with many in attendance by not towing tired party lines and long failed party ideology and rhetoric. Mirroring some of the same principles, examinations, and reflections that many successful local progressive politicians in NH have adopted, she presented some much needed perspective and outlined a few, focused action items for local activist to pursue. We are already looking forward to next year's picnic!
