Northfield, NH – Spaulding Youth Center recently held its annual Employee Appreciation Day in the community center of its Northfield, New Hampshire campus. All Spaulding employees were invited to attend the fun‐filled afternoon and the appreciation event was extended to provide an opportunity for all departments to attend.
