To: All Members of NHMPA
It is with Great regret that we inform you that our Treasurer Sue Folsom, after a long and heartfelt deliberation, has decided to step down from her position as Treasurer of the NHMPA. Sue has been the heart and core of the board since she took office, and her presence and guidance will be deeply missed. Sue has agreed to help in the interim and with the transition of the new Treasurer.
To the Membership: It is most pressing to find a new capable, willing, and qualified replacement as soon as possible!
Ask Yourselves, ask your family members, this may be your time to shine. The Treasurer is a most important Board position, and we cannot function without one. Please wrack your brains and email any one of the Executive Committee members with a suggestion.
David Kemp, President

The new campaign on Facebook and Instagram, features a short video and a link for further information and will run for the entire month, coinciding with NHMPA’s Maple Month celebration.
The maple ads have drawn a lot of attention showing over 115,000 video views, so far, with 80% “click-throughs” to the attached link for more information. The ad is linked to the NH Maple Producers Association website for the most comprehensive list of NH sugarhouses.
