This is Ciaran and Tara! They moved to the US from Ireland in 2012, and to Peterborough in November 2019. On their way to hike Mount Monadnock last August, they stumbled upon Parker and Sons Coffee Roasting, fell in love with the town and looked at property the same day! They were looking for involvement in a vibrant community and they definitely found it! Both musicians (Tara an accomplished classical violinist, Ciaran a founding member of the Three Irish Tenors) they perform together in their band Ishna.
This is Corinne! We are lucky to have her as the director of Peterborough Town Library which may I remind you is the first tax-supported – aka public – library in the world, founded 187 years ago TODAY! She has helped develop and expand the library’s rich programming, and is playing a vital role in the building of the new town library. In addition, she sits on a plethora of town boards and committees. Corinne and her family moved here a few years ago, and we couldn’t be more happy!
This is Ben! Longtime resident and local news stalwart, you’ve seen his spellbinding photography everywhere from the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript (where he serves as editor), to calendars at art fairs (he’ll be at the upcoming Broke art fair on 11/30), local business websites, band posters and more. He was awarded NH Press Association Photographer of the year for 2019!! He’s quite the ubiquitous presence in the local community. You’ll find him covering just about every local high school sports event there is, and he also advises the Conval student literary magazine/newspaper The Link throughout the school year.
Below are just a small selection of the many great social services in our town:
