Guest speaker, January 14, about West Road

On Sunday, January 14,  there will be a brief Vernon Historians meeting at 1 p.m., followed at 1:30 p.m., by guest speaker Cynthia Martin from Henniker, New Hampshire.

Cynthia will share some of her extensive research about families in Vernon who lived on, or in the vicinity of the West Road, going back to pre-Revolutionary War times.  She has traced many of her ancestors to the area and is excited about sharing some pictures and telling stories based on her research and her own family memories.  Her primary focus will be on the Fairman Farm and Addison Brooks Farm. Cynthia looks forward to meeting people who share her interest and excitement about Vernon people, places, and things from the past.

The public is invited, so bring a friend or neighbor who might be interested to spend an afternoon with us! As usual, delicious refreshments will be served.

The Trustees will meet on Tuesday, January 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Office building, lower level.
