A few of us liberty lovers on the Seacoast — with the encouragement of many others like yourself as well as the assistance of SWELL — are building a welcoming, inclusive liberty clubhouse for all liberty lovers around the Seacoast region.

We now rent a small (1200 sqft) space in a historic mill building to serve as our center for community. If you look at the SWELL events calendar you can see many events happening at this new location in Rollinsford.

This is not our final location, but just a first step, a place where we can bring together all those who desire a welcoming Seacoast community, to explore everyone’s ideas of what such a space might look like and what it can provide to all of us, and to plan together our next step.

We have planted our flag to create “Seacoast Harbors Every Liberty Lover” (SHELL).

The desire is to keep the space open regular hours, for it to be filled with welcoming members, and for it to offer interesting, diverse activities each day. We’d love for members to regularly drop by, to bring guests, to organize events, and to enjoy both the various planned and serendipitous activities that members will create together. Some ideas that have excited us include philosophy movie night, popular movie night, open-house hang, theme dance, quiet co-working hours, game night, poker night, fight viewing night, speaker events, debate night, personal growth night, yoga practice, judo night, liberty discussion group, music playing night, New Mover’s potluck, regional night (e.g., mixer with Quill), beer connoisseur night, art night, a small play rehearsal and performance.

You may be the type of person who can help us create such a welcoming space for liberty lovers — a real community home on the seacoast for Free Staters to enjoy one another’s camaraderie and to share our love of liberty. Can you help us create that for yourselves and for others?

We invite you to join us in building this active and inclusive community for all Seacoast liberty lovers.

We have a skeleton organizational structure for the first three months with a management committee selected by members to coordinate Member activities in the various areas. Members vote on most important things. After the first three months, the Members will then vote for a more permanent structure that they have decided they want.

If you’re interested in becoming a member, please attend a Shell event and ask another member how to join. A list of events can be found on the Shell Calendar:
