The 2021 calendar is here!
Our calendar is a full-size wall calendar, black and white on beige paper. It includes 13 historical photographs, this year ranging from 1946 to 1967 because it is a tribute to Bernie Lashua and his photographs. It includes pictures like the A&W, a Memorial Day parade, Union Street ski tow, and a soap box derby on Main Street. It is one of two primary fundraisers for the Historical Society.
Due to hardships associated with the coronavirsus we have decided to sell the calendars for half price this year--$5 each plus $2 if you want it mailed. For mailed calendars make check payable to SAHS and mail to above address. They will be available at Bibens, Cota & Cota, Images, Tina’s Hallmark, Woodbury’s and at the Society. They make great Christmas gifts for people away so be sure to get yours early.

Can you help?
The Covid-19 pandemic has presented all of us with challenges we never envisioned. We all have shared in the lockdowns, mask wearing, food shortages, and some of us have been on the front lines of the “battle.”
