Gilmanton Planning for 115th Annual Old Home Day (184)

GILMANTON — Plans are under way for the 115th Gilmanton Old Home Day which is scheduled for Saturday August 10. There will be an official opening at 10 a.m. by the American Legion Ellis-Geddes-Levitt Post 102 and the event runs until 3 p.m.
The Parker Hill Road Band will provide musical entertainment, and there will be children's games and other activities. The Old Home Day will host a craft fair and local organizations are asked to consider a display and explanation of their activities. This year there will also be animals on the lower slope for the enjoyment and education of all who attend. An antique auto show is being organized.
After cooking for eleven hours, the  famous bean hole beans will be lifted from the wells and the first setting will be at 11:30 a.m. This full course, all-you-can-eat dinner includes home made pies and our famous kidney, pea and spicy beans with all the fixings.
To raise funds for the Old Home Day festivities, ads are being sold in the annual booklet to promote products and services within the region. Call Barbara Angevine at 603-527-3414 before July 1 to purchase an ad.
