SCDC May 2017 Caucus Written Recap & Photos

On Saturday the SCDC had their caucus for electing officers to the county committee for the upcoming cycle. It was well attended and was conducted very efficiently. It was wonderful to connect with so many local, progressive activists. Several members including myself, were not interested in running for another term. I've served several times over the years and though I think it is a very important time to be on the SCDC, I don't have the time to put toward this year's very ambitious response to the challenges we face in Strafford County. We need people who can make that commitment and pull everything together.

NH Progressive Summit-Embracing The New Wave-Sat June 17th

This annual event provides space for new and existing activists to come together and hear from inspiring keynote speakers, as we collectively learn, train, and mobilize for the many issue and electoral challenges and opportunities we face together.

Last year’s NH Progressive Summit theme was “Standing on the Brink.” This year’s theme is “Embracing the New Wave.” It's time for a new, bold, progressive vision and community. We'll learn from past experiences and embrace the new opportunities in front of us to build a stronger, more united, more articulate progressive community and world. Whether it’s advancing pro-active legislation at the state and federal level, guarding against conservative rhetoric, or challenging corporate political corruption of our legislative and electoral process – the 2017 NH Progressive Summit will provide context and action to move forward together.

 Adopt-A-Spot Clean-Up-New Merry Meeting Daylilies

We are ready for spring and have started to pull together the Adopt-A-Spot. Many of the early bloomers are already out showing off and the tulip bulbs we put in last year have started to bloom. We are also very excited to have some new Daylily additions this year. Merry Meeting Daylilies donated six new plants for us! We are so excited to see what they look like when they bloom. Les Turner has 350 varieties at his garden business in New Durham. Quite a sight to see. You can visit him online at the link. Our mulch should be in next week. We'll post some broader shots when things are looking more pulled together. A giant thank you to everyone who have stopped and said wonderful things about the spot while we are tending it. We are happy that the spot makes you happy and are eager to make Farmington look a little better from Route 11!
