For the last couple of weeks, following an article I wrote about Rye Elementary School kids in New Hampshire leaving "Thank You" cards on the windshields of doctors, nurses, and other frontline workers at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, I've dedicated part of the "Power Hour of Positivity" that I kick off every weekday morning at 9a to showing love to the Frontliners in our lives.

So, every weekday morning at 9:30a, I've been doing a segment called "Frontline Love," which is simply a shoutout from a New Englander like you to a Frontliner in their lives. And they literally have had to do ZERO leg work to make it happen -- just send a message with the chat feature on our FREE 94.9 HOM app, or by messaging us on our Facebook page. That's it! That easy!

And just by doing that, here are our local Frontliners that have gotten some love so far, which I feel like is extra important these days (and honestly should've started way earlier):


Ariana Morse - a family nurse practioner at ConvenientMD Urgent Care in Portsmouth, from her husband, Dan.

SERVPRO of Portland - The entire staff was shown some love for all the work they've been doing to get offices ready to be returned to, and even cleaning local police dpeartment cars, from their co-worker Katrina Millett.

Riverview Psychiatric Recovery Center - The nurses, mental health workers, and acuity specialists at this Augusta business received love from their co-worker, Michael.


Berlin NH School District - From the crossing guards and bus drivers that ensure kids arrive safely to school, to the teachers that educate them on the daily, Krystal wanted to show love to all school district members who have stayed the course during the crazy times.

VA Maine Healthcare System - Deril, who is one of the culinary specialists at the VA, sent love to his team members in the kitchen at the VA, as well as his co-worker Shannon, who he says has overcome a lot of challenges as a returning veteran, but with a smile.

Tuckaway Tavern - Owner Bobby Marcotte, manager Sean Miller, and the Tuckaway staff in Raymond were shown love for feeding the displaced residents of an apartment building near the Tuckaway that was the victim of a three-alarm fire, from Raymond community member Rachel.

Teresa Bowers - A Navy Vet who has worked all over, including at the Harry Alfond Cancer Care Center in Augusta, but now works at Maine State Prison - from her sister, Jan.

NH CVS COVID Vaccine Team - This entire team was shown some love by their teammate, Trillian, for the tireless work they've been doing day-in and day-out for over the last 2 months.

Community Policing Officers of PPD - Officers Matt Rider, Dan Knight, David Argitis, Alissa Poisson, and Rob Lauterbach of the Portland Police Department were shown love for the nonstop work they do building and maintaining community partnerships and assisting the public.

As shown by this list, a frontliner doesn't necessarily have to be somebody who wears powder blue, scrubs, or runs into buildings on fire -- it's just anyone that's stayed the course and helped contribute to make all of us better.

Want to add the frontliner or frontliners in your life to the above list? Again, a simple message with their name, what they do, and where to our FREE 94.9 HOM app or our Facebook page is all you need to do!

THANK YOU to all the frontliners that were mentioned above, and the ones that have yet to be mentioned, but will be soon!
