This Saturday, September 16, is our 28th Annual Celebration. I'm especially excited about having Ernie Hebert, a Keene native and well-known local author, with us to share stories about who we are and how each of us have a stake in the land.
It'll be entertaining and thought-provoking. Come let his stories and characters reignite your passion for our region, for your neighbors, and for the land. I look forward to seeing you there!
