Home Sweet Home NH

I was able to make it to Concord today for the hearing on Senate bill SB 132. Joe Marquette, Amy and her husband were also able to make it. It was my first time being present for a discussion regarding a study bill or any local government sort of proposal. It was interesting to see how the process worked and to hear the constituents proposals (primarily) against SB 132.

Joe also was able to speak and voice his opinion to "kill the bill". His speech was followed with a wonderful applause. Way to go, Joe! We need to continue writing, e-mailing and calling our legislators voicing our concern over merging the Department of Agriculture with other NH agencies. To find out who you should contact check Who's My Legislator? for contact information. Remember, a phone call is always best, but any means of contact is appreciated.

On another note of "home," I wanted to alert you to two home shows happening this coming weekend. It sure sounds like a nice weekend to be outside.

The 2nd Annual Home, Garden, and Recreation Show will be happening at the Prospect Mountain High School in Alton, NH. Show date is April 25th from 9 AM - 4 PM.

There's also another home show happening in Dover, NH. The Dover Home Show is $5 per adult with under 18 free with adult. The show is taking place April 25th as well from 9 AM to 8 PM and also on Sunday April 26th from 10 AM to 4 PM.
