Remembering Lorraine Meyer Of #FarmingtonNH

Lorraine Meyer 2015 (Center)

Many in the Society will be greatly saddened by the passing of Lorraine Meyer. She was a deliriously fun loving individual, enterprisingly intelligent, and was one of the best storytellers I've ever met. She constantly contributed to the Society's success and the loss of her talents and energy will be far felt by our community.
