Theme of Nov. 17 Zoom Presentation
Have you heard of Kearsarge Neighborhood Partners (KNP), and wondered what it's all about?
Put simply, it's a new non-profit serving the Kearsarge-Sunapee region, including Andover, and dedicated to "building a broad community in which neighbors help one another flourish."
On Tuesday, Nov. 17, beginning at 7 p.m., you can learn more by participating in a "virtual" presentation and conversation, from the comfort of your own home. The event will be led by New London's Steve Allenby, KNP president, who will be accompanied by Andover residents and KNP partners Cindy Benson and Paul Currier. Sponsor of the event is The Andover Community Hub.
Describing the nature of the event, Currier, a founding member of both The Hub and KNP, observed:
"We're on a two-way street here. On the one hand (side?), our community has very specific needs. On the other hand (side), our community also has resources -- that is, volunteers -- that can help address those needs. KNP -- together with The Hub -- can be the catalyst that brings needs and volunteers together."
Because of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, the event will be delivered "live" over the internet to local residents via an easy-to-use videoconferencing technology called Zoom. There it can be viewed interactively and at no cost via home computers and hand-held devices. Information and a link to join the session can be gained by sending an e-mail request to TheAndoverHub@gmail.com.
The event will be the first in what is hoped will be a series of public Hub-sponsored offerings aimed at increasing awareness of the wide variety of services offered by area organizations and agencies and available to residents of Andover.
For more information about the partnering organizations, both newly created, go to www.kpnh.org and andoverhub.org, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com. KNP came into existence earlier this year, while The Hub was formed when two other local organizations joined forces in January 2019.
