NH Field Hockey Umpires Association

Playing for a Purpose 2018

Welcome to the NHFHUA Website

Thank you Paula Anania for your service to NHFHUA!

Paula oversaw her last annual meeting as President on Thursday, August 16. We would like to thank her for her years of dedication to the board and to the game of field hockey. She has always given unselfishly of herself to help in many areas to promote the game. Paula will continue to serve as Past President and we will still see her blowing her whistle on the fields to keep the game going!

Linda Osborne will be stepping up as our new President. We welcome new Members at Large Kevin Torre and Kati Jopek to the Executive Board. Also re-elected as Members at Large were Penny Fazsewski and Kathleen Smith.
