MOULTONBOROUGH — The Moultonborough Historical Society will hold its November meeting on Monday evening, November 18, at 6 p.m. at the Life Safety Building (fire/police station) on Route 25 in Moultonborough, and the program will be a potluck supper in honor of any and all veterans who wish to attend, followed by a short program to be determined.
The supper will be free to all veterans and their spouses; just bring your own place setting, and call Fran Vincent at 253-6250 or Kathy Garry at 476-2349 to make a reservation, so we can be sure and have enough "potluck" for all to enjoy. All others who wish to attend, please bring a dish to share, along with place setting.
Beverages including coffee, tea, and water will be provided. The usual meeting time, which is the second Monday evening of the month, would fall on Veteran's Day, so to avoid a conflict with the holiday, this month's meeting will be one week later than usual.
