Country Fest Gillette Stadium Miss NH Fundraiser

Holy Cow! I got to see Lady Antebellum, Sugarland, and Kenny LIVE while volunteering at the Freeport Fryer! I had so much fun at the concert and was able to help raise money for the Miss New Hampshire Scholarship Program at the same time!

Littleton Food Drive and Variety Show

Friday August 14th was a whirlwind day full of excitement. I was invited to the Littleton Senior Center to perform in their Variety Show. The show raises money for the NH Food bank. Last year they collected one ton of food and they are well on their way to reaching that amount again this year. I was honored to be a part of such a great event and will cherish my memories of the caring people of Littleton NH. PS I was able to visit their famous penny candy store---it has been in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest penny candy counter!

I concluded my day by partaking in Life’s a Jungle Fashion Show Extravaganza which raised funds for the Seacoast Hospice Center. It was a blast! By pulling together and sharing our time and talent with others we made a difference.

GABS at the Lollipop Festival

Kelsay and I had a Great American Bake Sale at the Exeter Rec for the Lollipop Festival. There were about 160 kids and they all had a lot of fun!

Miss NH MB Tractor Golf Tourni 2009 Laconia Country Club

Monday August 10th was the Miss NH Golf Tournament! There were about 10 title holders there and we had so much fun. Last year the event raised over $20,000 and it is one of our biggest fund raisers. Marc really puts on a good tournament and all of the participants have a fun time. Erica and I were on the Vegas Hole where the golfers could double their money if they bet and got their ball on the green. We raised somewhere around $1,000 just on this hole!! We had so much fun with the golfers!

I haven't run competitively since High School. When Jamie Staton, the Sports Anchor for WMUR news 9 (
asked if I wanted to run in the race I was really excited. It was a good opportunity for the Miss NH Program to give back to WMUR. Jamie Staton is the Host for the Miss NH Scholarship Program and we have so much fun with him! We had a beautiful day to run and we all had a ton of fun! Our WMUR team even came in 7th for Co-Ed Teams! Lauryn Debaie, Jamie and I were in the top 5 for our team too!
