    Directions - Bunker Hill Avenue is off route 33 (Greenland Road)
    There are several roads you can come up to get to our house. coming from Portsmouth. (Winnicutt and straight on to Union Rd left at teh top) The easiest way though is to go past the traffic circle and Bunker Hill Avenue is on the left hand side just before the Police station. Go up Bunker Hill past The Meadows housing complex and we are next on the right. Jo Jo I can give you directions from Rte 3 when Andrew gets back in!

      Not sure where on rte 3 Mass you are, so you can either come up I-495 until it joins I-95, or up rte 128/I-95. Go to exit 2, the toll, head for rte 101 Manchester. Come off at exit 11 (Exeter/Stratham). Turn right, then immediately right at the Irving gas station. Drive up Stratham Heights Road to the top, T-junction. Turn left. This is bunker hill. 150 Bunker hill is on the left after about a half mile, just past Glenholm road, and before The Meadows.

  • Lynn H.

    Changed the RSVP.. Another time we can get together. Mia is just too tired to bring along and finding a sitter here has gotten awfully hard. I was looking forward to joining all of you...

  • Claudia O

    Sorry to hear that Lynn! Totally understand...hopefully we will catch you at the next one. Have a wonderful holiday! Please just change your RSVP.

  • Lynn H.

    I haven't been able to get a sitter. we have to get up at 5:30 to get to this swim meet in Exeter.. Mia has a warm up at 7:20. The meet begins at 8AM and lasts until 1PM or later...Mia will be too exhausted to go anywhere.. I doesn't look like I can find a sitter here so I will have to pass on this one. Sorry.

    November 28, 2012

  • Rachael S.

    Hope you can find a sitter Lynn, although with that schedule you too might be exhausted!

    November 28, 2012

  • Lynn H.

    I will try to get a babysitter since Mia will be much too tired to come with me. She has a swim meet in Exeter earlier in the day..We need to get up at 5AM, leave at 6AM to be in Exeter to warm up at 7:15AM.. The meet begins at 8AM and usually lasts until 1PM. She is so tired then.. I will let you know if I have a sitter..
