UNH Alum Jennifer (Gilbert) England ’94, and UNH staff member Martin England hosted their Fifth Annual Friends’ Thanksgiving in November at their two-story barn (affectionately known as the North Buick Lounge) in North Berwick, Maine. 75 friends attended this event. Each attendee donated a grocery gift card from a local supermarket and all proceeds were distributed to financially-challenged families in the Noble/S.A.D 60 school district, where Mrs. England teaches. This year, over $2,200 was raised.
In addition, The England’s also started a non-profit called Continuum Arts Collective (CAC), providing support-challenged, aspiring artists grades 8-12 at Noble High School with the acquisition of materials, mentors, and methodologies to help pursue their artistic goals.
