After a dozen or so years or so on Bonnet Street, in Manchester, Vermont, Komen Vermont-New Hampshire has relocated its offices across town to 1009 Depot Street, above Women and Children’s Services of Southern Vermont, in Manchester Depot.
“The folks from the Northshire Bookstore, our former landlord, and the Counsell family before them, have been great to us from the start,” said Becky Burke, Komen VT-NH’s President. “More than generous.”
Carol Munson, the organization’s long-time Affiliate Coordinator, gave a rundown of past “offices.” “Our original office space, if you could call it that, was on the second-floor landing of the Zion Church’s Parish Hall stairway, where we shared a printer with Vermont Reading Partners,” said Munson.
“A few years later, thanks to the generosity of Merrick Counsell, we moved into the small apartment above his family business, Briggs Fowler Insurance, at 21 Bonnet Street. The building was eventually sold to the Northshire Bookstore, we stayed, Briggs Fowler moved out, Spiral Scoops moved in, and now we’re heading off to our first real office space.”
“The new location is a great fit for us,” said Terry Farkas, Komen VT-NH’s Executive Director. “Women and Children’s Services of Southern Vermont is a pediatrician, Dr. Donna Miller, and Dr. Glen MacKenzie, who’s an OB/GYN. Our missions dovetail nicely. Beyond that, our new space is beautiful, very sunny, and there’s lots of parking – we’d love for people to drop by to say hello!”
