Historical Society Annual Meeting

Where- at Squire's Tavern (100 East River Road)
When-  at 12:00 noon, Saturday, September 6

The Barkhamsted Historical Society is having a pot luck picnic lunch on the grounds of the Tavern. Anyone attending is asked to bring a dish to share.  Beverages and dessert will be provided.  In the event of rain the lunch will be held inside. Celebrate the 235th anniversary of our fair town and see a very interesting slide show that  you will enjoy- you'll have to come to see what the topic is.  Maybe an element of mystery will encourage you to join us.  A very short business meeting will be held to elect Historical Society officers for the coming year.  Hope you can make it!

Paul Hart, Barkhamsted Historical Society
