We are a major contributor to the Town’s annual 4th of July celebration at Meeting House Park behind the Town Offices.

Eagle Scout Brett Hamel updated the Veteran’s Monuments out in front of the town hall, since the most recent one had covered up until the Vietnam War. This will honor those who have joined the military while Hampstead residents since Vietnam up to and including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We are asking eligible service members to download the form we’ve developed in order to get their names put on the back of the monument. If there are any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603-329-4288
