Fort Adams Trust received the Social Responsibility Award. In 2016, Fort Adams opened its doors to Y summer camp programs to give local youth access to the waterfront for sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and swimming.

Healthy Living Award went to Common Fence Point Zumba┬«. The partnership extends the Y’s reach to the Portsmouth area with free classes for Y members.

Sharon Discuillo was presented the Volunteer of the Year Award. She is the gymnastics team Booster Club President and is invaluable to the team’s success.
