25th Anniversary – December Recap

December 2021 was the final month of our 25th anniversary, and it was an incredibly successful wrap-up month!  The theme for December was Historical Resources.  We participated in events and celebrations, as well as virtual programs.

Virtual Program

GSA held a virtual program that focused on history in NH: The History of Agriculture as Told by Barns.  This program was co-sponsored by NH Farm, Forest & Garden Expo, and presented by John Porter, author, former dairy specialist, and Farm, Forest, and Garden Expo Board Member.  It was an informative and engaging presentation, which can be accessed here.


In early December, our GSAs volunteered at the Made in New England Expo, welcoming guests to this fun holiday event at the Center of NH Expo in Manchester.  

Also in early December, our GSAs enjoyed a festive holiday party with the Social Committee at T-Bones Great American Eatery in Concord.

Our organization had the opportunity to take a picture with Governor Sununu on the steps of the State House as a celebration of our 25th anniversary.  Some GSAs were also given a tour of the State House by fellow GSAs.


Granite State Ambassadors as an organization was also recognized with a proclamation during an Executive Council meeting for service to the state for 25 years.  Kelly Bryer, Executive Director, and Emily McMaster, Communications Director, also received commendations for their dedication to the organization.  It was a special way to end a year of 25th anniversary celebrations.  Read more about the celebration here.


Our Conversations with Emily series continued with an interview with Moffatt-Ladd House & Garden, a historical property in Portsmouth where GSAs will be volunteering in Summer 2022.
