Warner Falls Foliage Festival

There are many areas in which we need assistance from volunteers leading up to, during and after the Festival.  

The Festival runs from the evening of Friday, October 5th through Sunday, October 7th.  We have additional days of pre-set up on Sunday, September 30th,  set up on October 5th and clean up on October 8th that have volunteer shifts as well.

We ask for a minimum of 2 hours and in return (aside from the glow of being altruistic) the volunteers each get a tee shirt and if in need a community service hours, a signature confirming that they performed some community service.

Students who are interested (or want to know more) can go on the Festival website ( There is a volunteer tab on the website that will describe some of the areas and how to sign up online.  Interested students (and others!) can contact me directly at

The Teen Court Program was started in 2001. In this Program, youth participate in a court process administered by their peer group under adult guidance. It utilizes both teen and adult volunteers from the community who may be able to earn community services hours for their participation. The hearings are overseen by a Judge and the courtroom is comprised of volunteer jury members, teen prosecuting and defense attorneys, bailiffs and adults mentors, often UNH School of Law students. The program meets at Merrimack County’s Probate Court typically two Tuesdays per month from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
