New Hampshire Red hen

New Hampshire designates official poultry

Hmmm…we think this is cool (yay, Canaan kids!)…but also maybe slightly embarrassing? (It was picked up by a site in San Francisco!) But, in any case, now you know.

With birds named 'Peachy' and 'Rusty' looking on, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill bestowing top honors on the New Hampshire Red, touted by supporters for its hardiness, intelligence and other qualities they said match the state's residents. Students from Canaan Elementary School who proposed the legislation joined Sununu for the signing.

As N.H. Ages, Littleton’s Getting Younger and Hipper…But How?

It’s no secret the state of New Hampshire is in search of talented, young professionals. Gov. Chris Sununu now has a “millennial council,” there are local advocacy groups devoted to making the state more attractive to twenty and thirty somethings, and southern New Hampshire towns are trying to build new, Main Street-inspired developments from scratch.

In many towns - especially in rural areas - the aging population is growing rapidly and the number of school-aged kids is declining. Littleton is one of those places, but lately, it seems to have figured out a way to attract new people that could help turn the tide.
