So if you are like me you love networking it’s also an important part of running any business. It’s one of the reasons you will often find me at The Falls Chamber After or Before hours events. These events give local business owners a chance to show off their businesses and often they involve other partners.

The Tri City Networking group takes the networking concept to a whole new level. Unlike many networking groups that collect dues, the Tri City Networking Group takes their dues and puts them back into the local community.

As the name suggests this is not just a Somersworth business networking group and includes other business owners from Rochester and Dover.

Talking Tombstones Tour, Forest Glade Cemetery, Somersworth

Talking Tombstones A Trip Through Somersworth History

Talking Tombstones Tour, Forest Glade Cemetery, SomersworthSaturday 29th September turned out to be beautiful Fall day with perfect weather for a walk though the Forest Glade Cemetery which is located on Maple Street here in the city.

Now I know many of you already walk the cemetery each and every day, which is exactly what it was designed for when it was created in 1852. If you had the pleasure of walking through on Saturday though you were in for a treat thanks to the Summersworth Historical Society.

A Walk Through History

You see the Summersworth Historical Society held it’s second ever guided tour of this historic cemetery and brought some of Somersworth’s most famous and sometimes infamous characters to life. This was possible through the support of volunteers who acted the part of those long since departed but have like each and every soul in the cemetery a story to tell.

School starts this week! For many Somersworth parents that brings the headache of making sure their student has completed their class suggested list of supplies.

While these lists offer just suggestions, if you are like many area parents you already have the backpack stuffed full of goodies and ready to go.

For some though the financial burden of even purchasing a back pack can be hard.
