You may have seen Gilsum’s newest resident, Georgia Cassimatis, around town with “Milk,” her Black and White Staffordshire Terrier Mix. “You’ll probably see us walking/running up and down Gilsum Mine Road and Route 10 to get to the lovely Calhoun Forest. I love gardening, hiking, community, art, knitting, sewing, photography, rock climbing—and the list goes on!” she says.

Georgia bought her first home in Gilsum last November. She works at Badger and the City of Keene, and is the Public Art Coordinator for Friends of Public Art, a nonprofit. She holds a degree in business management from  Keene State College, and a masters degree in sustainable development and climate change from Antioch University. “I also have basic skills in dog training if anyone out there needs help,” she says.
