Poetic Obituaries: People in the community know [Nancy] Hill

best for her community involvement and achievements, notably as the force behind the Portsmouth Poet Laureate Program. Hill started the program in 1997 with the help of volunteers--people she never failed to mention. She was a co-chairwoman with Paula Rais for 10 years before choosing to hand the position over to [Leslie] Kimball.

The PPLP was a result of Hill's involvement with The Music Hall's "Shipyard Project" in 1996.
