Patrollers’ Banquet – Saturday April 22, 2017 – Now Open for Registration

Uploaded 06-24-2011 229We’re bringing back the NH Region Patrollers Banquet… This year on April 22, 2017 Ragged Mountain Resort in Danbury NH will be hosting our Patrollers Banquet.

This is a great opportunity to get together with fellow patrollers and friends from other patrols and share some stories, laughs and camaraderie.

Cocktail hour is the perfect venue to do some networking with some of our Region officers, program advisors and Instructors and get in the loop of information for next season. It is also a good chance to embellish comical incidents of unique happenings you may have been part of.

NSP Awards will be presented in recognition of Patrollers’ and Patrols’ contributions to the NSP organization. Continue reading
