KEENE, N.H.—Maple season is under way in New Hampshire, and Gov. John Lynch is getting in on the action.

Joined by his wife and local school children, Lynch will tap a tree in Keene on Monday to officially mark the start of the season.

In the last few years, New Hampshire has produced between 90,000-100,000 gallons of syrup a year, which adds up to nearly $5 million in annual revenue through the sale of maple products.
