Local History Talk

Last night Max Petersen gave a great talk about local history at the library as a kick-off for our Vermont Reads program.

The event was a joint venture between the school library, the public library, and the historical society. Twenty-two people attended the talk. There were a lot of questions and discussion about how homes, roads, and town buildings have changed throughout the years. Some people lingered afterwards to enjoy conversation and refreshments. Barbara Andres' cookies disappeared very quickly!

A tape of Max's talk will be available soon at the library for those who were unable to attend.

Our next event will be October 16 at 6:30 in the library, when we'll be looking at town pictures and talking about family history with Barry Whitney, our town's genealogy expert.

Thanks to Max Petersen, Carol Clauss, Barry Whitney, and Fletcher Brush, who together made this series possible.
