Annual Race Supports Scholarship Fund
CONCORD — For the 15th consecutive year, NHTI, Concord’s Community College and Northeast Delta Dental (NEDD) are prepping for their annual 5K road race. The NHTI/Northeast Delta Dental 5K is part of the Concord Area Race Series (CARS), and has become a Concord area “hallmark” event. The race is open to the public, and around 500 runners typically participate.
The New Hampshire Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer Committee held their annual Legislative Breakfast event at Pearl & Sons Farm in Loudon on Tuesday, March 26. Each spring, the group of agricultural enthusiasts between the ages of 16 and35 invites members of the NH House Environment & Agriculture Committee, federal lawmakers, and other movers and shakers in NH agriculture to join them for a hearty meal and an opportunity to hear concerns facing young farmers across the state.
Volunteer subjects needed for students’ clinical exams
CONCORD — NHTI’s dental hygiene students still need your help! The students are required to take a clinical board exam to obtain licensure, and are in desperate need of volunteer patients for this exam.
The dental hygiene students will hold another open clinic on Monday, April 1, 2019 from 5-8pm, for screenings to determine if volunteers meet the criteria to qualify as board patients. All screenings and any necessary x-rays will be free of charge, and x-rays will be forwarded to the patient’s dentist on request. Free toothbrushes and toothpaste will be given to all volunteers. You may call the dental clinic to register for this screening at (603) 230-4023.
Time for an update. A few issues from our March meeting that I voted on or spoke to. So here goes.
Golf Course Tent
I voted to spend an additional $30,200 for improvements related to a tent for hosting events at the golf course. Why, did I vote for this appropriation when in the past I have voted against using general fund revenues for the golf course and I voted against the purchase of the tent.
