During the ceremony, many colleagues, friends and family members recalled Smithís dedication to the legal profession and to his community.
Smithís daughter, Attorney Brenda Smith-Weiss, presented a biography of her fatherís long and distinguished career, from its beginning at the law firm Hamblett, Griffith and Moran through his retirement as a member of Smith Connor and Wilder. Smith has been involved in many charitable organizations over the years, including the Community Church of Hudson, Greater Nashua Boys and Girls Club Foundation, The United Way, and Odd Fellows.
In addition to Smith and his family, notable guests attending included: the Hon. Sherman Horton, retired NH Supreme Court justice; the Hon. William Groff and Hon.
