HOLDERNESS — Squam Lakes Natural Science Center has been selected by the readers of Parenting New Hampshire magazine as a "Family Favorite" award recipient for Favorite Environmental and Education Center.
The Family Favorite awards, now in its third year, is an award program that recognizes family-friendly businesses, services and places in almost 60 categories - as chosen by the readers of Parenting New Hampshire magazine. Categories included Out & About, Baby Stuff, Birthday Fun, Shopping, Activities & Learning, Family Services, and Restaurants.
"The Family Favorites' award program recognizes those places, people and things that make New Hampshire a great place to raise a family," said Melanie Hitchcock, editor of Parenting New Hampshire. "Whether it is at child care center, the library or the playground, parents give each other advice on what and who is the best. The Family Favorites contest gives them the opportunity to share that information with the wider public."
