It has been quite a trying year for the greater Newburyport Community during the Covid pandemic.  Many in our community have faced financial hardship and social isolation.  It is against this backdrop that our citizens have stepped up to address these issues and find solutions.  They have done this by volunteering their time and efforts with local community organizations and non-profit groups.

The Covid crisis has brought forth the best of the human spirit to truly make a difference in the quality of life in greater Newburyport.  The 2021 Yankee Homecoming (YHC), theme is “Reimagined”.  This theme reflects the effort individuals have made in our towns, this past year.

To recognize these efforts of our citizenry, YHC is again soliciting nominations for senior men and women, (age 60+) and teen young men and women, who have made a difference in the lives of the residents of Newburyport and surrounding towns, by unselfishly giving of themselves, donating their time, efforts, and energy.

Please complete and return the appropriate application, (senior or teen), and return to YHC using the email address at the top of each form.  You will need to save your application and then attach as a file to the email. In the application, tell us why you are nominating this person.  Include where they have volunteered, for how long and how you think they have made a difference.

For more information on the process or the mechanics of submitting an application, please contact:  Paul Bushey, Chairperson, at
