The One Hundred Club graciously welcomed us for our annual Ask Event on May 9th. The event was sponsored by mad*pow and approximately 50 people attended and were able to enjoy the beautiful view from the rooftop terrace. Our goal for the event was to raise $40,000 for specific project completions in Southeast New Hampshire. We raised an amazing $23,000! We still need to raise the remaining funds to complete the houses in Farmington on Reservoir Road & on Berry Court. Thank you to The One Hundred Club and mad*pow for helping to make our fundraiser a success!

On July 4th, SENH HFH Administrative Assistant Anne Phipps and volunteers Dale Delory and Jess Phillips participated in the annual Rotary Club of Durham-Great Bay July 4th celebration held at Cowell Stadium. Anne, Dale and Jess provided several activities for the kids - decorating birdhouses, building bird feeders and building bulletin boards. Other activities from other organizations included:
- Granite State Zoo’s educational wild and exotic animal exhibit.
- McGregor Ambulance Corps exhibit and tours of an ambulance.
- An inflatable bouncy house and 22′ slide.
- Face decals, fireworks painting on paper plates, hula hoops, and other games.
- Carnival food including pizza, fried dough, sno-cones, hot dogs, etc.
- Newmarket Militia
- And, of course, spectacular fireworks!
The fireworks were presented by Pyrotecnico, America’s most innovative and creative designer of fireworks displays. A voluntary donation was requested at the gate to defray the cost. Proceeds assist in high school scholarships, food bank contributions, Christmas turkey distributions, support to high school and UNH Rotary Clubs, an international program to eradicate polio, providing boots and shoes to needy children in local schools, and supporting local charitable organizations including Womenade, Bobcat Bolt, and On-Belay.
The Rotary Club of Durham-Great Bay wants to thank all of its sponsors and in particular the Town of Durham for providing police, fire and public works support and UNH for providing police support and their spectacular venue.

Each year, about 30 young adults dipped their bicycles in the Piscataqua River at Prescott Park. At the end of August, this same group will dip these same bikes into the ocean in Vancouver, B.C. From now until then, they will ride their bikes across the country, while helping to build homes and raise money for Habitat for Humanity, and raise awareness for the need for affordable housing. This amazing team is from a non-profit organization called Bike and Build, and they are prepared to give all they’ve got for two months to address the nation’s affordable housing crisis.
This year, the Bike and Build team helped out at our ReStore.
