Not every young adult is interested in attending a 4-year college after high school, and this event promotes an array of options. A huge thank you to all who participated in the planning this event, the schools that bused students from miles away from all over New Hampshire, and all the exhibitors and sponsors.

We serve the community by designing safe travel ways, sturdy structures, means to drain the storm water from our roads and communities,, and maintaining all of these essential pieces to support society!
