The special cake shown in the photo above was baked for the festive occasion to mark the 40th year since our Association was formally organized. The celebration took place during our annual meeting held at Weeks State Park’s summit house on August 24, 2023.
A large crowd was in attendance to enjoy the refreshments, presentations and informative talks by State Officials: Brian Wilson - Director, NH State Parks, Matt Flanders - Bureau Chief, NH Historic Sites, Elizabeth Jurgilewicz - Program Specialist, WSPA President - Sally Pratt and Weeks State Park Manager, Rachel Bruce. NH Executive Council counselor, John Kenney also offered his valuable insight from both an historical and current perspective concerning his efforts in enhancing awareness and support of Weeks State Park for the legislature and other government groups.
