Kim’s Theme: “CHALLENGING THE NEEDS OF OUR VETERANS”
The entwined stems of the flowers are reminiscent of a caduceus (insignia modeled on Hermes’s staff in Greek mythology and used as the symbol of the medical profession) representing Kim’s Dad’s service as a Medic in the U.S. ArmyThe roses are reminiscent of Kim’s Mom’s favorite flower, a yellow rose.
The wings represent Kim’s Mom and Dad, who are now angels, watching over her .

IMPORTANT UPCOMING EVENTS
I hope this message finds you well!We understand that budgets are especially challenging today. Which is why we wanted to provide you with opportunities to partner with us in 2024, to help us serve those who have served us. A brief explanation about what we do:Liberty House serves two groups of Veterans. First, we walk alongside our resident Veterans as they progress through our action-oriented, sober, 4-Step transitional program and transition to independence.Since 2004, we have served over 400 resident Veterans. Unfortunately, the need continues to increase.Second, we serve community Veterans by providing basic necessities, such as:
- Bus Passes
- Gas Cards
- Information and Referrals
Each month we serve between 90 and 110 individual community Veterans and have over 400 Veterans registered with our pantry. Again, we have seen the need continue to increase. Our dedicated team hosts several events annually to raise funding in support of our mission.
Below are our 2024 events:
- Roaring 20’s, 20th Anniversary April 6th
- Touch-a-Truck May 18th
- Fore The Veterans Golf Tournament June 27th
- Veterans Day Breakfast November 9th
- Annual Christmas Tree Jubilee December 12th & 13th
If one or more of these opportunities excite you please connect with us and we can provide additional information. Thank you for your consideration!Best,Jeff NelsonExecutive Directorjeff@libertyhousenh.org

Subject: Volunteers Needed Thurs Aug 3rd 5pm – 8pm
Just FYI, we are still looking for Volunteer help here with Cruise Night on Thursday, August 3rd 5pm-8pm. Please sign-up via our volunteer web portal MyVolunteerPage – Login (betterimpact.com). Or simply send me an email with the names of the folks who want to help. More info:
The New Hampshire Veterans Home will host our annual car show, “Cruise Night” on Thursday, August 3rd in our outdoor back lot /pavilion. In addition to an amazing display of classic vehicles, this event will also include music, games and much more! Volunteers are needed for various event tasks such as selling raffle tickets, tallying votes, parking, etc. **But, we especially need volunteers to partner up with Residents to push them around the lot to see the cars, enjoy some food / music and cast their votes. A trip around with a Resident takes about 30 mins. Since it’s only a 2-hour show from 6pm-8pm, we need a very large number of extra hands to help get our Residents around. For more information contact Megan Row, firstname.lastname@example.org.
