Upcoming Events

2015 Annual Meeting

Please join us for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Association. It will be held at the Epsom Fire Station on Saturday, October 24th. Dust off your recipe books, because it’s a pot luck! Bring a tasty dish to share—entrees, side dishes, and desserts are all welcome.   Be sure to label your dish and bring an appropriate serving utensil (also labeled, of course).   Beverages will be provided.

Arrive between 5:00 and 5:30. We’ll begin with a business meeting from 5:30 to 6:30. The board is looking forward to bringing the membership up to speed on the events of the past year, our current status, and our future plans. We’ll begin our potluck dinner as close to 6:30 as we can, with rewards and recognitions at 7:30. We’ll conclude the evening with a guest speaker.

One of the benefits of membership in the NHSWGA is that your business cards can be displayed in our card rack at the Farm & Forest Exposition and the Sheep & Wool Festival. If you want your cards included this year, please bring a small stack of them with you to the meeting. There is no better place to have them get to a very targeted audience.

Our annual membership expires the last day of October, so don’t forget to fill out a membership form and bring it with your check for $15 to renew.

If you have any questions or would like to add an item to the business meeting agenda, please contact our President, Wayne Welch. You can reach Wayne at 603-895-4281 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . See you there!

2016 NH Sheep & Wool Festival

The 2015 festival was a success with a good crowd and fantastic lectures, workshops, vendors, and exhibits.   Needless to say, we’re already planning the 2016 festival. Mark your calendars for May 14 & 15 because you won’t want to miss the fun!

We are always looking for volunteers to join the festival committee. Just give one of the festival co-chairs a call and they can tell you about the many opportunities to help out. It’s a great way to get more involved with the association and meet some new friends.

Hope you’ll join us!
