Social Committee Event Details

Journey to the North Pole
12/13/2019

We will again celebrate our inner elves and volunteer for the Journey to the North Pole. This event is run by the Believe in Books Literacy Foundation and supports a great cause. It is a wonderful way to really get the holiday season off to a wonderful start.

It’s a bit of a departure from our usually social activity but a great way to get together, get into the holiday spirit, have a lot of fun and for NHGSA to give back to a great cause. The money Believe in Books raises goes toward funding their Literacy Programs. You will get GSA volunteer hours for your time and may bring a friend or family member.

The details…
Date: 12/13/2019
Location: Lincoln NH
Time: ~3:30pm – 9pm
Level: There is a lot of walking and standing. We will have a break between the 2 shows with pizza provided. We have to walk up and down a path to the train.

Dress: They will supply us with full costumes that go over your clothes. Dress for the weather (layers are good) knowing you will have an extra fleece jacket and pants on top. Also big heavy boots are not recommended as they give us covers to go over your shoes.
Volunteer Hours: You will get GSA volunteer hours for your time
Names: Please pick your Elf name.
Directions: Will be sent prior to the event.
Signup will be in the GSA Online Calendar System (like other GSA signups) and will open soon. If you are bringing a guest, please send us an email at socialcommittee@nhgsa.com with their name so we can adjust the count.

Some of us plan to stay at the Indian Head Resort (Lakeview side) in Lincoln (not far from the north pole!). www.indianheadresort.com
Indian Head has always been extremely supportive to the Granite State Ambassadors and this is a great way to give back. They are also one of the sponsors of the event. It is nice not having to drive back after, instead we can unwind at the hotel. Please make your own reservation but let us know your plans. There are also other hotels in the area and I know there are some folks who will probably return home after the event.

If you have any questions, please let us know socialcommittee@nhgsa.com.
