We are “Great for Eight!” We hope you will agree!


From our Press release:

Salem NH Democratic candidates for NH House — Carla Billingham, Sean Lewis and Bonnie Wright — hosted a Meet and Greet Ice Cream Social last Wednesday at Peach Tree Farm on Brady Avenue. Members of the community were invited to attend and get to know the candidates, and ask questions, while doing some good for the local community as well.

The candidates invited the Facebook community to suggest local nonprofits to be recipients of the proceeds, one of which was picked from a name in a bowl by Bob Williams, owner of Peach Tree Farm. The recipient has asked to have us meet with them in mid-September. Watch for details about when we will present them with the $150 we raised.
So special that Salem voters came out to meet us, ask questions and talk about the issues most important to them. Good fun, great ice cream and excellent conversations! It was very generous of Peach Tree Farms to allow us to have our event there,” said candidate Carla Billingham.

Carla Billingham passionately discussing the issues with friends.
Sean Lewis added that “it was a great opportunity to meet not just voters, but neighbors and friends from across Salem. As someone who is still relatively new to town, it was a real treat find so many people excited to engage in debate on the issues and even more satisfying to know that we all care deeply about many of the same things. I’m really looking forward to meeting voters where they are as we enter the next phase of our campaign.”

Bonnie Wright commented, “I’m so grateful to the team that help us plan this event, especially Bob Williams, who allowed us to use his facility, Dee who handled the ticket sales, those working in the Salem Democratic Town Office who helped us get people there, and Laurel Redden who holds our hands. I’m also grateful all of the community members who came to get to know us, or to show their love and support, and hear what is on folks’ mindsWe made some new friends, and exchanged some warm hugs. Everyone seemed to have a good time!
Caught in the act! Bonnie Wright at the end of a long, hot evening. What’s an ice cream social without ice cream?
