Penacook Village Association Directors
Farmers Market Committee Meeting
February 20, 2014

Word Version

Present: Kathy Bush, Ray Miner, Lynne Raleigh, Althea Todd, Mike Cotton, Terri Maxwell, Bill Smith,
Steve Shurtleff, Brent Todd and Paula Miner

The meeting opened with discussion on whether or not to have our regular March 8th monthly meeting In light of the fact that there is the Annual School District meeting on March 6, Sewells Falls Bridge discussion at City Council on March 10, and the Penacook Zoning meeting on March 13th. It was voted to not have our March 8th meeting. Possible topics for upcoming meetings were a Police Department talk on safety, a re-do of Matt”s Penacook History Program, Business Update, Project Notes (Utility work, etc.) and Tannery Clean-up update.

Brent spoke on the possibility of a joint meeting with the Historical Society regarding the Concord 250 Project. Mike spoke on the very nebulous response from the local farmers regarding this year’s Farmers Market. He mentioned that it was still a little early as responses typically come in at the end of April, in May and Some not until June! The question arose: Is the Farmers Market viable? Some ideas were a central location, a mini co-op, offering entertainment, and have rotating crafters.

The dates for this years Market are June 23rd to September 29th.

Ray Miner moved “ If you register for the Penacook Farmers Market by April 15th, and attend 10 of 14 Monday Markets during the 2014 season, this will result in the refunding of your application fee.” This motion was seconded by Paula. After much discussion, the motion passed. We can get 50 Farmers Market signs for Three hundred dollars ($300.00) Entertainment: we will see if we can alternate two or three at $100.00 per appearance. We will also see if we can schedule workers for the Market.

We also discussed applying for grants: the GROW Grant, a project grant, NH Charitable Foundation, an Express grant, New England Grassroots grant, a seed grant that is revolving, and a Lincoln Financial Grant promoting wellness.

Respectfully submitted
