We have many changes happening in the month of May:

Pittsfield Listens Announces New Coordinator

Submitted By Molly Messenger

Pittsfield Molly.jpg

What words would you use to describe the Pittsfield community today? ‘Supportive,’ ‘small,’ ‘struggling, ’‘caring.’  What words would you want to use to describe Pittsfield community in 5 years? ‘Active,’ ‘growing,’ ‘proud,’ ‘friendly.’  So are some of the words shared by the over 113 community members in the 2011 summer community conversations, and so was my introduction to the Pittsfield Community’s incredible spirit.


My name is Molly Messenger, and it’s a pleasure to be brought on board as the new Community Outreach Coordinator with Pittsfield Listens. The Pittsfield community left a lasting impression on me ever since my initial opportunity to work with The Pittsfield Youth Workshop and NH Listens in the summer of 2011. During that time, I assisted in organizing and leading youth facilitator trainings and facilitating small group dialogues. This collaboration inspired my appreciation for Pittsfield’s strong community of dedicated, caring residents working together across many barriers in the process to make positive change.


Throughout my experiences as a Community Organizer, Facilitator, and Social Justice Educator, I have led dynamic programs involving youth and adults from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. These experiences reinforced my belief in the capacity of young people to contribute to their communities. They also deepened my understanding of the important role that re-empowering individuals with leadership skills can play in building community that work better for more people.


My professional experience includes Youth Organizer with American Friends Service Committee-NH; Youth Mentor and Project Coordinator with Appalachian Mountain Teen Project; Program Coordinator with Jifundishe in Tanzania, East Africa; and Research Manager of a study looking at refugee well-being in NH.  In addition, I have served on several boards in leadership roles, including the Waysmeet Center in Durham and Global Awareness Local Action of Greater Carroll County. More recently I have worked with NH Listens as a Facilitator, and joined in managing efforts to revitalize the former Ossipee Mt. Grange hall into a community center for arts, education and advocacy. I hold a B.A. in Anthropology and International Affairs from the University of New Hampshire.


I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the Pittsfield community, bringing my deep passion and commitment to creating inclusive spaces for everyone’s unique skills and perspectives to lend in the process of creating a more just, fair, and sustainable community for all. Please feel free to stop by or drop a note to say hello! I look forward to getting to know and working with more of you throughout the Pittsfield Community.


Pittsfield Listens invites you to join for the next Community Connection Series to welcome Molly and participate in a brainstorming session to help determine next steps for Pittsfield Listens. This will take place on Thursday, May 16 from 6:30 - 7:30 pm at The Pittsfield Youth Workshop (5 Park Street). Light dinner will be served, and childcare available by request. Please RSVP to [email protected].  All are welcome!


What can all of us do to make Pittsfield a better place for everyone to live, learn and play?


Pittsfield Listens began in 2011 with a mission to facilitate and encourage open dialogue and collaboration between all members of the community. For more information or to get involved, contact: [email protected], (603) 435-8272,, or Pittsfield Listens, 5 Park Street, PO Box 206, Pittsfield NH 03263.

A Big Thank You


I want to thank everyone who came to my surprise Birthday Party, and what a surprise it was.  I had not a clue. It was so nice to see all my friends from South Pittsfield, from town, from TOPS, from church, and all my other friends and family. It is a day I will never forget. I thank everyone for all the flowers and gifts, but especially for just being there.  You all really made my day.


Thanks Again,

Helen Schoppmeyer
