The Peterborough Plus Chapter of the LWV of NH normally meets the third Thursday of the month, but that is subject to change depending on the venue. The League meetings will rotate thru most of the towns in the area, to be accessible to the majority of the members. Members come from many towns: the ConVal SAU (Peterborough, Hancock, Dublin, Sharon, Temple, Bennington, Francestown, Greenfield, and Antrim) plus Jaffrey and Harrisville.

All current League members, their friends and prospective members are invited to League meetings to continue activities of this newest regional unit covering the areas listed above. Do join us if you are interested (men are also welcome to become members).

At the January 17 meeting, we'll discuss our upcoming initiatives and projects, including our spring voter registration drives for young people at ConVal HS and Franklin Pierce University.

Note: Our meeting location will vary so we are equally accessible to all our member towns. We are looking for free public meeting spaces in the Peterborough area if anyone has any suggestions (the Peterborough library meeting room is $30 each time).
