To The Daily Sun,
We had our successful and tasty fundraiser for David Swain (having an 80th birthday too!). Old Town Hall hasn’t looked so pretty in a long time — Rachel Swain has a way with flowers and hay bales!
Now it’s on to Old Home Day in Sanbornton Town Square. Saturday we start with the historical society’s pancake breakfast from 8 – 10:30 at Lane Tavern. The three sites: library-church-Old Town Hall, Life-Safety Building / Town Office, Lane Tavern / Currier building and field will all be busy with family-satisfying fun and programs, vendors, raffles, demos. Town website has the day’s activities to preview. Information booth in front of the library, with $5 commemorative T-shirts. Parking in school lot with bus service to the sites by First Student-Tilton and Sant Bani School. Many thanks to them! Early breakfasters can park at the end of Currier field — providing it is dry enough. We’ll know by then.
Lunch for sale both by Old Town Hall and in Currier Field. BB’s Scoops ice cream at Lane Tavern / Currier Field. Rock Salt Creamery ice cream in library parking lot.
Cribbage tourney at the fire station has a firm 9:00 start — ends with prizes. Touch-a-truck there, and plastic fire hats for the kids.
Last of all is cake slices with ice cream, free, at Old Town Hall from 1 to 2 p.m., leading up to the 2 p.m. parade, and end of our once again celebrating Sanbornton. Hear band music and eat cake and ice cream! Visit with friends. Bring folding chairs.
The parade (line-up at corner with Huckins Pond Road / school lot) will have color guard of local veterans, thanks to Bill North organizing it. Walkers, groups, floats, animals, custom cars, tractors welcome and needed in the parade. Theme: the Four Seasons.
