An annual event in Londonderry NH for the Memorial Day Weekend the Rotary Club Car Show.

Special post tonight with the Sandi Wilson Youth Homelessness Endowment Fund Event.

Sandi recently retired from her position at Enterprise Bank but her dream to eliminate youth homelessness within the Merrimack Valley will now become a reality.

View more photos at my Events Page on my website.

On a personal note I have been photographing Sandi since we first met in the early 1980’s.

We had a deal at events only one photo of her, but tonight it was all about her so the deal was off.
