LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) - An organization that helps build businesses and jobs in northern New Hampshire and northeastern Vermont is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

The Northern Community Investment Corporation is inviting people to receptions it’s holding with Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin on Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its office in St. Johnsbury, and with New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan on Feb. 18 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at its Lancaster office.

Each event will include remarks from the attending governor, NCIC’s president, Jon Freeman, and a sampling of businesses and community leaders assisted by the organization.

The nonprofit group lists at least 20 success stories on its website, such as a grant to help strengthen online ordering to have more customers reach the North Country Farmers Co-op, comprised of at least 20 farms, bakers and a maple sugar producer.

Last year, the NCIC assisted in a $300,000 grant to help Tillotson Performance Polymers in Colebrook produce medical gloves and create 16 jobs.
