On the Island

Senators Visit Star Island

Shannon Roecklein, Star Island Assistant Conference Center Director, had the unique pleasure of leading a guided tour of the island for Senators Judd Gregg, Trent Lott, and Lamar Alexander and their wives on Saturday, June 20. The group was brought to the island by Sue Reynolds aboard her boat, the Uncle Oscar, and by all reports the trip was a great pleasure for everyone.

“Senator and Mrs. Gregg often go to the Isles of Shoals, and have done so for many years, to visit the various UNH marine initiatives, Celia Thaxter’s Garden, and to support the White Island Lighthouse for which they helped to secure over $250,000 for restoration efforts. Last month, the Greggs enjoyed the opportunity to bring Senator and Mrs. Trent Lott and Senator and Mrs. Lamar Alexander to Star Island, and especially appreciated touring the Island which is such an important landmark and historic area in New Hampshire,” stated Laena Fallon, Press Secretary to Senator Gregg.

Members of the Board of Trustees met with the esteemed visitors and were happy to see that Senator Gregg came back to Star Island (we all do come back) and that he brought such a distinguished group of friends.
