OUR ENVIRONMENT NEEDS MORE LOCAL REPORTING

The Concord Monitor is launching its Environmental Reporting Lab, a long-term effort to better inform the community about the New Hampshire environment. To launch phase 1 of this effort, we need your help. The money raised will go toward hiring a full-time environmental reporter.

Please consider donating to this effort.

Recently, Dr. Margaret Laneri, Lt. Col., U.S. Army (ret.) and doctoral student intern Sarah Somogie presented Camp Resilience Program Coordinator Olivia Kimmel with an original wood carving for the New Hampshire-based veterans nonprofit group.

Laneri is the Director of the Worcester, Mass., Veterans Center where Somogie is doing her internship.

The artwork was created by John Fleming, a veteran at the Worcester Center and a previous Camp Resilience attendee.

“John just wanted to express his appreciation to the staff at Camp Resilience for the opportunity to attend one of their sessions and for the life skills he learned while at the Camp” said Laneri.

Veterans who attend Camp Resilience sessions come from all over New England and once they arrive in Gilford, Camp Resilience, through generous donors, pays for all the veteran’s expenses; lodging, meals and recreational fees while here for the three- to four-day retreat.

For more information about the services provided by Camp Resilience and how you can help veterans with a tax deductible donation, please visit prli.us.
