Congratulations to the new Miss Monadnock Region Samantha Massahos. Welcome to Miss New Hampshire! This was the first Miss Monadnock Region program ever, Mrs. Barker did a wonderful job with the show.


Miss University and Miss Strafford County October 3,2008

Congratulations to Kristen Ruggieri the new Miss University and Jennifer Clements the new Miss Strafford County. The first title I had ever held was Miss University. Above I am being interviewed by Mark Erickson from the Morning Waking Crew on WOKQ (The best country radio station ever) Mark Erickson has hosted Miss University for four years now. WOKQ is a huge supporter of the Miss New Hampshire Program. I have been featured on their station twice with Sam Adams on the Reporters File. I was able to have 30 minutes of air time both shows! It was such a great experience.

The Great American Dine Out at the Inn At Danbury September 27-28, 2008

The Great American Dine out is part of my platform and is a new event of Share Our Strength. The Great American Dine Out rallies the nation’s restaurant industry and millions of consumers to dine out for one week to raise critical funds to help end childhood hunger.

My director Wayne and his wife Debbie are shown below.

I was able to talk with customers while serving water to thank them for helping the fight to end childhood hunger in America. The great thing about the Dine Out program is that the customer gets to enjoy a great meal while helping contribute to Share Our Strength which helps provide food to children where they live, learn, and play.

I was invited to help host the Great American Dine out at the Inn At Danbury! I am standing here with the owners. They have been collecting non perishable food items to donate to the New Hampshire Food Bank.

My First Appearance- Miss Deerfield Fair September 26, 2008

Congratulations to Chantel McCabe the new Miss Deerfield Fair 2008! We both had a wonderful time at Miss New Hampshire last year, she is the former Miss Seacoast and I am the former Miss Kingston. We were crowned on the same night last year. I am delighted to compete with Chantel again. She has two wonderful directors Candace and Lea Glickman. They are both very helpful and I know Chantel will have a great year with them. Best of luck!

And the new Miss Lakes Region is...Alicia Rossman! September 6, 2008

Erika Leighman Miss Lakes Region 2007 crowned Alicia Rossman as the new Miss Lakes Region 2008 on September 6, 2008!
Hello Everyone! I just got back from studying abroad in Italy and what a way to start my senior year and my time back in America! I am so proud to represent the Lakes Region and to have Wayne and Debbie by my side to help me prepare to be the next Miss New Hampshire.
Thank you to my friends who have supported my quest to become Miss New Hampshire! My friends from the left: Lauren, Whitney, Mel, Jill, and Garrett. They are my suite mates at school. I also want to thank my best friend Thais who couldn't make it because she had to work (she is one of the hardest workers I know). She was there in my heart and I am happy to have such wonderful friends.
Thank you to my Mom and Dad for always supporting me as well! I could not have come as far as I have with out you.
This is my 4th local title and I can't wait to compete for Miss New Hampshire April 30th-May 2nd 2009.
