This thread is #1 result when you follow Ridley's advice and Google "Grafton welcome wagon".

And I'm sure Google is happy about all the free advertising it is getting.

Now go make a real Web-site.  Sheesh.  Need any help?  ::)

We don't necessarily need a website. People can find us if they know the name.
You want to put up a website for me?

reminder that the Grafton Welcome Wagon will be available from 10-6 today

we might do some stuph outside before the rain, but later we can discuss if the Hoyt Farm is the best place in NH to watch it rain.

Tours of the brook running over its banks might begin at 5pm ;D

Russell, we don't currently have a contact for Grafton County for the FSP Welcome Wagon.  It might be a good way to let new movers know about Welcome Wagon Saturdays and to help them get to know their new neighbors.  Let me know if you're interested.

The Grafton Welcome Wagon is similar to the NH Welcome Wagon and other regional welcome wagons, in that it is a group of people who help supply info about their area for incoming porcupines. Kat and I used to be the Monadnock Welcome Wagon, but we passed it on to Ian about 2 years ago. I just created the Grafton version for our small area, since there is so much interest.

The Grafton Welcome Wagon holds official parties every once in a while, which I post on this forum. We have held most of our parties here at the Hoyt Farm also called the Porcupine Recreation Area. Grafton porcupines and other friends from in town stop by on a daily basis to visit, garden, or join in on impromptu potlucks. There is always someone here, so it is a great place to talk with other porcupines.

If you would like to visit other porcs in Grafton, drop us a line somehow and we will make sure we are here and maybe even plan a party to greet you.

the volleyball net here at the farm was broken in at Kira's birthday ... it worked great. We had a great party.

Some of the locals are asking what all is happening here and the volleyball net and garden is starting to be a landmark for those passing by. Maybe we have more fun and more parties at our place than anyone else. These porcupines are playful.
