MEREDITH — A Greater Meredith Program logo was unveiled at the organization's annual meeting on Feb. 21 at Church Landing.

The Career Partnership Program, The Courtyard on Main and the Meredith Roundabout were all recipients of awards in 2012.
Following a talk by Dennis Delay, an economist from the NH Center for Public Policy, Kelly acknowledged all the GMP volunteers and board members for their in kind donations of time and talents as the "backbone of our organization".

The 2012 GMP Board Member of the Year Award was presented to Rusty McLear for his continuous support of the GMP.
