History of the Blackstone Volunteer Recognition Award

Jess Blackstone was a wood carver in the League for many, many years.  His birds are miniature sculptures that stand today as collector's items in the League’s Permanent Collection.  Jess's wife, Edie took the cause of the League of NH Craftsmen for her own.  She worked on staff, retired, and came back as a volunteer for a great number of years.  Edie worked to provide craft education and membership services.  Every year, she would be at the Fair serving the League in literally hundreds of ways.  We celebrate her selfless dedication with the Blackstone Volunteer Recognition Award.
