Chamber Area News:
  • New Hampshire Telephone Museum's 2016 exhibit The ART of Conversation is seeking artists to display. The exhibit will be called The ART of Conversation and will showcase the many art forms inspired by communication. NHTM wants to invite all local artists and artists, far and wide, to consider displaying an art piece(s) for the May-October showing off the Main Gallery at the New Hampshire Telephone Museum. NHTM will be reaching out to our community artists and contacting artists from around the country, but NHTM won’t have time to contact everyone, so please share this information with all your talented friends and family. Here are a few details: The exhibit will open on May 1st. The deadline for art submission is March 15th Artists are responsible for their own work There will be a fundraising event at which time artist may sell their work More details and the proper paperwork will be issued in the coming months. If you wish to have more information now or you are ready now to add your name to the exhibit, please contact Graham Gifford at 603-456-2234. NHTM is inspired to create this 2016 exhibit because NHTM has been curating images for our Pinterest Board called The ART of Conversation and NHTM is continually blown away by the imagination and talent expressed online. After this exhibit ends it will be translated to an online gallery located on the NHTM website.

  • Warner 11/19/15: Another successful Business After Hours at Knoxland Equipment in Warner.


  • Member business YCN Now is in a struggle to have TDS carry their WYCU/YCN programming on the TDS new fiber TV service. YCN is currently carried on the TDS analog cable service. YCN has been run around in circles since June. With every passing day that new subscribers are added to their new system YCN looses viewership of YCN News, Game of the Week, Kearsarge Chronicle, Capital Connections and specials like the Kearsarge Chorale concert Thanksgiving week and parades from the New London Hospital Days and Warner Fall Foliage Festival. The problem is that should TDS decide to carry YCN in the first quarter of next year, it still takes another 60 to 90 days to get on the air because of subscriber notification requirements. Please contact TDS at http://info.tdstelecom.com/tdstv/channelrequestform and let them konw that you want YCN Now on their fiber TV service. Thank you for your help, Greg Uhrin, GM & COO, YCN ... Your Local View!
