The New Hampshire Road Agents Association hosted its 27th annual Mountain of Demonstrations on May 22, at Mount Sunapee Resort in New Hampshire. The event is known for its unique live demonstrations and one-stop shopping opportunity for municipal, public works and transportation department personnel. The event allows New Englanders to travel to one central location to meet with the manufacturers about the newest product lines, services and equipment for roads, bridges and other related maintenance projects.

This year the show generated a total of 80 vendors and more than 600 attendees. As part of its annual tradition, the Road Agents nominated Wayne Robinson, road agent from Brentwood, N.H., employee of the year for exhibiting excellent work ethic and going above the call of duty. Funds from the Mountain of Demonstration went toward the N.H. Road Agents Scholarship program, in which two students received $1,200 college scholarships.
