Gilmanton Old Home Association holding annual Meeting

GILMANTON — The Annual Meeting of the Gilmanton Old Home Day Association will be held on Thursday, September 19  at 7 p.m. at the Smith Meeting House on Meeting House Road. There will be an election of officers.

The association just completed a very successful 115th year which included the favorite Parker Hill Road Bluegrass Band from Bath, an enthusiastic puppeteer and the first annual Tug Of War contest. Many local organizations had exhibits and explanations of their community activity as well as craftsmen and retail vendors.

The antique car parade continues to have a strong showing and this year the parade included a prize winning goat as well as the oxen owned by Kathy Salanitro of Ox-K Farm Discovery Center. The full course dinner including beans baked in the ground, ham and vegetables was well attended and other foods were sold on the grounds.

Old Home Day meetings are limited to one hour and are used to plan and to discuss organizational details.
