Celebrate Durham has been invited by Riverwoods to attend their upcoming Activities Expo that will be held June 26 at The Oaks in Somersworth. We will be reaching to other community groups to let them know about this opportunity. Businesses are also encouraged to come and meet the new residents. The group feels it would be great to concentrate on electronic avenues of communication. This will be a great opportunity to meet many of the new residents and to promote the site Celebrate Durham NH
They will be hosting fireworks this year. They have started fundraising and have an online page for donation. We offered to help with promoting their page. Celebrate can do a write up( Rotary will write it ) and get the link to Friday Updates.
It was discussed that Celebrate should have a presence at the fireworks . We will ponder how best to do that. We can use this opportunity to push the website.
