Community Conversations: Turning Neighbors in to Neighborhoods

February 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Sometime in the last few decades, we stopped talking with our neighbors. Now, as more people work from home or have retired, neighborhoods are reviving as communities. A few people who have begun and want to begin neighborhood community-building start our conversation.

Our speakers will provide short overviews of community / neighborhood building projects that they have been involved with. What has proven effective, what are the challenges? Where are their new opportunities? Then the floor is open to anyone who wishes to talk about their own ideas, experiences, and observations.


Bill Kennedy ~ started the Pine Streeter’s in Peterborough
Melanie McDonald ~ Executive Director, Team Jaffrey
Owen Houghton ~ Monadnock at Home
Howard Mansfield ~  author, Dwelling in Possibility and other books about the Monadnock region.

Community Conversations is a series that explores many of the issues impacting our communities. A partnership between the Monadnock Center for History and Culture and the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript, each Conversation features local experts talking about challenges faced by our communities. Some issues are global in nature, but each conversation is designed to examine the topic from a local perspective. The program provides residents with the opportunity to learn more about key issues impacting their communities, to engage in a civil dialog with speakers and with each other, and to come away with a sense that there are things that individuals and communities can do to foster change and improvement. 

Community Conversations are held in Bass Hall at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture, 19 Grove St., in Peterborough.  The program is free and open to all.

Community Conversations are proudly sponsored by:
