    The Kearsarge Area Chamber of Commerce has reached a crossroad. It has become increasingly difficult to find people who are willing and able to serve on the Chamber Board. Without board members the Chamber will cease to exist.

    A Little History.

    Several years ago the board of the Warner Business Association discussed becoming a regional chamber. The general consensus was that there is strength in numbers and, as such, expanding the Association to include surrounding towns would provide a vehicle through which to promote the Kearsarge area and also provide a larger pool of volunteers to serve on the board and its various committees.

    Like any endeavor of this magnitude, it took time and there were some growing pains along the way. Over the years we struggled with the issue of dues - trying to keep them low enough to be affordable, yet high enough to enable the Chamber to operate efficiently. This year we reached a point where we were able to hire a person for a few hours per month to help better promote the Chamber through social media and other means. While this has made a significant difference, it is still difficult for an all-volunteer organization to function effectively, especially given the dwindling number of volunteers.

    As a member, your input and ideas are extremely important to us. A special meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 17 at 5:00 p.m. at the New Hampshire Telephone Museum, One Depot Street, Warner to discuss the future of the Chamber. Please plan to attend and share your ideas. If you are unable to attend but have some input, please contact Graham Gifford at 603-456-2234.

Several weeks ago, Command Master Chief David Randall reached out to the Kearsarge Area Chamber with this message and request:

My name is David Randall and I am the Command Master Chief of the USS KEARSARGE (LHD-3).

We in the Navy, take pride in our heritage. USS KEARSARGE (LHD 3) is the fourth ship named after the mountain. Just as we take pride in being named after the first USS KEARSARGE, I am sure the sloop KEARSARGE took pride in her original namesake as well, "Mount KEARSARGE". I would like to reacquaint USS KEARSARGE with the mountain.

Each year in September, we have a ceremony where the best of our junior enlisted Sailors in the Navy move up in rank to Chief Petty Officer. This year I would like to bring them up to the mountain and connect them with the ship's past.

We have a date planned to visit Mt KEARSARGE on 3-4 September. I hope to spend a day visiting the mountain, but would also like to spend the other day with the surrounding community doing something to connect us together. My hope is that this event will be a journey every year that the ship is in homeport and we can establish a timeless relationship with your community.

Very Respectfully
David Randall


The Chamber quickly began planning the two-day event. With the help of many in the Warner community, the sailors enjoyed a hike to the top of Mt. Kearsarge and provided community service; they enjoyed a community pot luck dinner and a presentation about the mountain's history; the crew visited Warner's local shops and had a luncheon at the Jim Mitchell Community Park. The crew ended their visit with a spaghetti dinner prepared by the American Legion. This was a wonderful opportunity for the Town of Warner and the Town shined!
