The Friends of Pisgah Annual Meeting was held in Winchester November 12, 2013 at the VFW hall. About 30 members and guests attended. Phil Bryce of the Director of the Division of Parks and Recreation in the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) was the speaker. Bryce’s talk covered the range of activities of the Parks and Recreation Department including numbers of parks, geographic distribution, number of employees and the mode of funding. At the conclusion of his talk, Mr. Bryce presented a digital slide show featuring many of the NH state parks. The photos were quite interesting and the slide show was much appreciated by those in attendance.

A short business meeting was held after Bryce’s talk and questions. Council members and officers of the Friends were elected for 2014. Officers elected were: Gary Montgomery, President; Matt Edson, Vice President; John Hudachek, Treasurer; Maeve Sabine, Secretary. Council Members elected were: John Knickerbocker, Matt Donachie, Bob Miller and Krister Raasoch.
