Regular attendees of our annual Antiques Appraisal event will be pleased to know that Mrs. Josephine Thrasher has returned to her full schedule and would welcome hearing from well-wishers. Should you wish to contact her, please contact Board Member Sarah Jane Brady at 1SJBrady@gmail.com.
Visitors to the Town Green, located between Maple Avenue and the rear of the Freeman Store, are reminded that the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. When you run in to buy a soda or some candy, please take the time to appreciate that you are stepping back into another era, where an actual Storekeeper reaches into a glass display jar to pull out a candy stick or a jawbreaker, where you can explain to a child how a crank-operated, wall-mounted telephone works and where a family really did “live above the store.” Our “Roads To Rails To Trails:” exhibit continues through the summer months, as does a mini-exhibit on the War of 1812 and our Museum Rooms offer a look into the past with period decorations and displays.
The concert schedule for the Town Green offers something for everyone – blues, military bands and choruses, jazz, country, bluegrass, rock. Starting times are usually 6:30, music lovers are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets (but no alcohol and pets are discouraged). A full schedule of concerts is available on the Town website.
We have received a massive amount of fine quality books and we thank you so very much for your donations. Please do not drop off any more books at the Freeman Store as we have all that we need! If you have books that you would like to donate, we hope you’ll set them aside for when we begin collecting for the next sale. Thank you!
