To The Daily Sun,
The Gilford Historical Society would like to thank all those who visited the three historical buildings/museums during the very cold Candlelight Stroll on Dec. 10. We also want to thank the many volunteers who helped to make it possible to have the three buildings open to welcome visitors.
We thank Carmel Lancia who decorated the three mantels at the historical 1838 Rowe House with fresh greens and the Ladies of Lakeport Lake Village Apartments who created the cranberry and popcorn garlands that were on the tree in the Rowe House: Carleen Cornelison, Diane DuFault, Doris Milo, Elaine Dapergolas, and Ginny Brake. Thanks go to Bill and Sally Bickford for decorating the outside of the Meetinghouse.
We thank those who donated an hour of their time so the buildings could be open: Pete and Sue Allen, Terry Bobseine, Alexandra Breed, Carolyn Brown, Nancy Carsen, Jim Colby, Rusty Davis, Kathy Dahll, Namome Eldbridge, Nan Fay, Diane Godbout, Doug Hill, Loretta and Lauren Isikoski, Karin Landry, Pat Martin, Diane Mitton, Ann Montminy, Mark and Alex Richardson, Ed Rushbrook, Rosemary Shannon, and Walt and Shirley Stockwell.
The aroma of gingerbread cookies was enticing to many at the Grange, thanks to Patti Herrick (who lives in Meredith) and Kathy Dahll for making the dough.
For providing music at the Meetinghouse, we thank the members of the First United Methodist Church of Gilford for their Hallelujah ringers for playing their chimes and for Dan Carter (the Muzic Man) for playing and singing holiday music there. We thank Jerry Murphy for playing his guitar and leading us in holiday singing at the Rowe House.
We scheduled our volunteers so they are able to volunteer for an hour and have an hour to enjoy the Stroll. We are thankful to all who were willing to work and volunteered their time to help make the Candlelight Stroll so enjoyable.
