A message from the Board Chairman

Spring 2017
 
What a difference a year makes.  Last year at this time many of us were already enjoying our first rounds of golf of the season at our local golf course and some of us may have to wait until May before we are able to enjoy our first round this year.  What has not changed from last year is the momentum we have as we embark on the 2017 programming season.  We have good news to share in this edition with the addition of another program location and we are in full sign up mode for the upcoming programs.  Please consider joining us for this year's benefit golf tournament or becoming a tournament sponsor.  Enjoy Spring...when it arrives!

By Jeff Walla, Board Chair

Welcome Beaver Meadow Golf Course to The First Tee of NH family!


We are very excited to announce our newest Program Location site for 2017, Beaver Meadow Golf Course in Concord, NH.

The First Tee of New Hampshire
Educational and Leadership Opportunities Scholarship Program
 
Many participants and supporters of The First Tee of New Hampshire (TFTNH) are aware of the numerous programs that we offer during the year at sites throughout the state, at golf courses, schools and recreation centers but they are not aware of a significant program we have initiated and need support with.  TFTNH, through initial seed funding from David and Karen Della Penta, established a fund to support educational and leadership opportunities for boys and girls who have been actively involved in programs of TFTNH.  Our goal for this program is to raise $100,000 in order to provide scholarships to qualified candidates throughout the state.  Many of our fundraising initiatives going forward will be for this program starting with our Annual Golf Tournament at Lake Winnipesaukee Golf Club on June 27th with a portion of the proceeds designated for the Scholarship Fund.
 
Once we reach our goal these scholarships will be provided for qualified TFTNH participants for educational and leadership opportunities which include, but not limited to, two-year community college degree, four-year college degree, as well as those offered by The First Tee that are focused on developing leadership and life skills.
 
Any TFTNH program participant, regardless of program location, who has participated in such program for a minimum of two years at the time of application, will be eligible for this two or four year college grant opportunity. Candidates should demonstrate promise of academic and/or success, as well as require financial assistance.
 
For questions regarding this program or to donate to this fund please contact
Leslie at 603-964-3033 or leslie@thefirstteenh.org.
