The Springfield Art & Historical Society exists to promote an appreciation of Springfield’s history and historical art by identifying, collecting, preserving, and making available material that documents the story of the town’s people, industry, and culture.
Annual Meeting October 15th
Annual Meeting: Saturday, October 15th, 1 PM to 4 PM at the Society.
At 1:00 will be a short annual meeting to elect officers and approve the new budget. Only society members will be able to vote on these items.
Steve Perkins, President of the Vermont Historical Society, will then present the program, “Vermont Eats” which will speak to how we got through the depression and war when so many food products were rationed. Being born after the war in a house with five children, looking over depression recipes, I can see that some of our meals were a carry-over from that time period. We also plan to prepare some of the recipes from that era so we can all have a taste. The program will be held in the program room at the Society so space is somewhat limited.
Another opportunity to support SAHS
Shaw's has chosen us once again, to receive donations from the sale of their bags during the month of October 2022. We earned $103 in July and we were surprised to be chosen again so soon. If you need reusable bags buy them in October. We earn $1 for each $3 bag sold.

More important than ever in 2022!
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.”
The Springfield Art and Historical Society would like to hear about your personal experiences and perspectives during this unprecedented time so that we can preserve them in our archives for future research and education by generations to come. Responses mailed to SAHS, PO Box 336, North Springfield, VT 05150 or can be emailed to email@example.com. Please include your name only if you are comfortable in doing so.
Thank you to the people who submitted stories. It's so important to capture the stories of the pandemic for history.
