MANCHESTER – What better way to kick off spring than with Court Appointed Special Advocates of New Hampshire’s 11th annual Spring Fashion Show and Auction at the Castleton on Cobbett’s Pond in Windham. Presented by CruCon Cruise Outlet, the event will be Friday, April 10, with doors opening at 11 a.m.
