Voices Of New Hampshire: Silver Linings During The Pandemic

Apr 5, 2021

Voices of New Hampshire is a new project designed to connect you with us - and with each other - in the time of coronavirus, and as we move forward toward better times.

For this project, we're collecting audio recordings of people from across the state, and incorporating them into NHPR's daily broadcast through short sonic IDs.

Want to add your voice? We invite you to email us at voices@nhpr.org, and let us know what has brought you joy this past year.  What lessons do you hope you'll bring forward as life slowly gets back to "normal?" Where's the first place you're going to visit?

Betsy Holmes of Deering, New Hampshire, decided the best way to keep herself busy this past winter was to get outside and paint. Every day. Even on cold, wet, dreary days.

Randi Johnson of Canterbury, New Hampshire, has found joy spending time with her son at home. "They say that you are representative of the people you spend the most time with... so I am definitely starting to find myself showing habits and hobbies of an 11 year old boy."

Bill Frantz of Peterborough, New Hampshire decided to map out all the trails behind the retirement community he lives in.  His neighbors/fellow hiking enthusiastists appreciate his efforts.
