Prepared for anything, NH Region Young Adult Patroller’s (YAP) eagerly arrived at Bolton Valley in Richmond, Vermont for the Eastern Division Young Adult Patroller’s Seminar on Friday, March 17.

We’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.

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.
Delicious food will be served for dinner and desert. We’ll have a door prize raffle with cool items for choosing. This always adds fun to the evening.
NSP Awards will be presented in recognition of Patrollers’ and Patrols’ contributions to the NSP organization. Continue reading
