Curious about Geocaching and want to know more about it so you can give it a try?
During this Zoom session we will cover:
Following this online session, Patty Evans will be hosting an official Geocaching event nearby, with social distancing and masks, of course, where we can meet up and practice our newly learned skills! There are two geocaches hidden in this location… one of them is Patty's! Once you find them, you will be able to sign the logs to show you found them and then enter your finds on your very own cache page online!

We enjoyed a virtual piano bar via Zoom on August 6th with Bob Mackasek, professional musician and recent newcomer to the Seacoast.
The Program and Events team has held several other video get-togethers via Zoom. So far we have met for a virtual happy hour, shared our travel experiences with a virtual show and tell, and shared some of our favorite books. Stay tuned and join in the fun!
We have been working behind the scenes to make sure that we will be able to offer face-to-face activities and services once it is safe to do so.
A small group of volunteers has been conducting phone check-ins to members. Sometimes a friendly voice on the other end of the line can be reassuring.
Seacoast Village Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered in the State of New Hampshire
SVP PANDEMIC RESPONSE
Like so many non-profit organizations, we are quickly pivoting, making adjustments to meet changing needs and constraints. During this time of social isolation, SVP is offering a limited “Community Support Membership” to residents over 50 in the NH Seacoast communities (Portsmouth, Exeter and surrounding towns). This introductory service package includes regular phone check-ins and local errands (non-contact delivery). SVP volunteers are available to run errands so that members do not need to leave their homes. In order to preserve social distancing requirements, our trusted SVP volunteers will not enter people’s homes.
We are pleased to announce that we will be offering free community community support memberships through the end of 2020. If you are interested in receiving services or in volunteering, we’d love to connect. Just click on the link above to fill out our interest form and someone will get back to you. You can also connect by sending us an email at Info@SeacoastVillageProject.org or by calling (603) 610-8430.
