A bench has been erected and positioned on the grounds of the Pillsbury building in Concord in honor of Richard Edmunds, a twenty year New Hampshire Public Radio volunteer, and fellow NHPR volunteers.
Edmunds was one of the gracious volunteers who whole-heartedly dedicated his time to NHPR. Edmunds volunteered in the Underwriting department for 20 years and logged 3,490 hours of service to NHPR. He began volunteering in 1991 after retiring from his banking position and was a NHPR member since 1980.
