We live in a 24/7 news cycle.  There is a lot going on in the world and the front page news isn’t always positive.  So it was thrilling to see Puddle Dock Pond above the fold on the cover of Saturday’s Portsmouth Herald.  Volunteers have committed countless hours to the Puddle Dock Pond effort over the last two years.  It was truly an honor to step onto the ice with Jeff Keefe on Friday morning to test the ice quality.

I enjoyed meeting Portsmouth Herald Photojournalist Rich Beauchesne and Reporter Jesse Scardina at the Friday morning Puddle Dock Pond Press Conference.  My sincerest thanks to Jesse, Rich, and the Portsmouth Herald for celebrating the opening of Puddle Dock Pond with a cover story.
