Season of Hope. Community.


Each of us does not exist as an island. It takes a community. Working together towards common goals.

Portsmouth is a pretty great place to live, to raise a family and to own a business in. I am a big believer in supporting local businesses year round. There are so many wonderful businesses out there.

In the past I have done a scavenger hunt with my businesses. Encouraging my employees to go out and visit local businesses. To realize that “we are all in this together”.

This year I am taking part in the SECOND ANNUAL PORTSMOUTH BUSINESS SECRET SANTA. What a great Idea! Not only is someone going to give my business a present- I get to find out about other businesses! I want to go in, look around, get to know them so that I can secretly leave meaningful gift.

YESTERDAY, a hat with all of the participating names was sent to the box office at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre.  I went down at lunch at drew a name.

Obviously I am not going to tell you who I picked until AFTER Christmas.

Price Range for gifts – $25 – $40

I am excited to get to know more people and businesses in the community.
