Rotary speaker explores why we keep returning to Alton

July 30, 2020
ALTON — The simple definition of a magnet is: an object with extraordinary power or ability to attract.

If you'd ask Rotary's guest speaker, Aimee Terravechia, who addressed the club at their Thursday, July

23 meeting, if her native town of Alton is a 'magnet', she'd agree.

On three separate occasions, Terravechia left New Hampshire to find work only to return because "My family's here, I love Alton, its people, lakes and mountains," she stated.

Her last out of state job was working for Microsoft which had her traveling to many large US cities. Now

back home, she and her husband, Jake Bemis, also an Alton native, started a new business, Catchpenney, 5 Monument Square, Alton. A retail shop selling gifts and home décor items.

Terravechia is both an artist and a writer, a graduate from Southern New Hampshire University and

studied graphics and fine arts at NH University of Fine Arts. With her strong background in business, social media and marketing, she's well qualified to operate and manage her business where

her talents and skills allow her to be creative. Among her other involvements, she is also the Media Director for the Alton Business Association (ABA), and for many NPO's as a volunteer. She's the mother of two, and lives in Alton with her husband, Jake.
