Fiona attends North Hampton School and was delighted for the opportunity to meet other students her age from Hampton, Hampton Falls and Seabrook she will again meet in Winnacunnet High School. We know it is thanks to the admirable generous grants from the NH Council for the Arts and the National Endowment for the arts. Thank You!”
