2008 is coming to an end and NH UPA has had an amazing first year as
an official UPA chapter. As a thank you to all our members who have
supported us by attending meetings, volunteering and presenting we
want to invite you to the annual NH UPA Holiday Party!
We have a terrific night planned with good food, drinks and surprises!
This will be a great opportunity to combine celebrating the holiday
season with getting to know your fellow NH UPA members better.
This year's Holiday Party will be held at the beautifully renovated
Beaux Arts Lobby in The Music Hall in Portsmouth. If you haven't seen
the striking new design of the Music Hall Lobby, trust me, you're in
for a real treat! We've worked hard to get sponsors for this event to
secure this wonderful venue and provide a great spread as well as a
free round of drinks for everyone!
Space is limited for this event so don't delay in sending your RSVP to info at nhupa.org
