PLYMOUTH — Under a new membership structure, Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce's members are realizing new benefits.
''Historically, chamber membership costs has been determined by the number of employees,'' said Scott Stephens Plymouth's Executive Director. ''Following a new national model, the Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce is now offering a tiered membership investment program that is based on the values the Chamber offers the company and not by the number of employees.''
Chamber members can now select from five investment packages based on how the chamber can best serve their membership needs, or continue to choose a la carte from the many benefits provided. Becky Parks, Banking Office Manager of Bank of NH in Plymouth, selected the Premium Membership Level. ''The Premium Level offers my company the best assortment of services including a continuous appearance on the Chamber's web site, advertising in the Chamber's Map & Guide Business Directory as well as strategic sponsorships of area events that offers us extra exposure to our customers and prospects.''

BRISTOL — On May 4 Barbara Stokoe of the Bristol United Church of Christ was honored for 14 years of service as the coordinator for the Newfound Area Churches Crop Walk held annually on the first Sunday in May.
Amy Porter of Church World Services attended morning worship at the Bristol United Church of Christ and presented Barbara with a plaque and spoke of her long service and dedication to this annual walk to help combat hunger throughout the world.
Barbara passed on her role as coordinator to Donna Worthen and Lucille Keegan in 2013. For many years the walk was held at the Bridgewater Hebron School but for the past two years walkers have enjoyed the scenic walk and bike path along the Newfound River. Water, apples and lollipops were available to sustain participants. A water stop at the Marion Center at the foot of the lake allowed for refreshments before returning to the parking lot. Walkers solicited sponsors both in person and via the internet.
Crop Walk is a program of Church World Service. Walks are held all over the country at various times of the year. Twenty five percent of the money raised stays right in the local community with NAC's going to the Bristol Community Services food pantry. In 2013 over $2,000 was donated to the BCS.
The Newfound Area Churches group is made up of the Bristol Baptist Church, New Hampton Community Church, Alexandria Methodist Church, Our Lady of Grace, Hebron Union Church, Danbury United Church of Christ and the Bristol United Church of Christ.
