Second, remember to mark your calendars for November 4-5 when Americans for Prosperity Foundation will host their 5th annual Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, D.C.! I strongly encourage you to consider attending this educational and exciting event which will feature addresses from some excellent speakers and give you the opportunity to interact with many of your fellow conservative activists. It truly is a can’t-miss event!
Third, as you may have seen on Friday night former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney became the first presidential candidate to sign AFP-NH Honorary Chairman Tom Thomson’s “My Pledge to the American People,” promising to cut taxes, fees, regulation and spending among other items to ensure economic prosperity.

Fourth, I hope you will join us for some end of summer fun by participating in our Tracking Oscar Contest. Earlier this week, we removed Oscar the “bull” moose from the Styles Bridge House in Concord where he has been on display since AFP-NH Honorary Chairman Tom Thomson loaned him to then Governor Merrill in 1995. While Oscar waits in an undisclosed location north of Concord for transport to his next residence, we thought it would be fun to solicit guesses as to his next home. Beginning next week, we will issue a weekly clue regarding Oscar’s destination that will help you to track him. The first person to correctly email Joy King with Oscar’s final destination will receive a prize!
Finally, be sure to check out our Granite State Gatherings section for additional information on many of the great events being hosted around the state.
