The Vernon Historians’ Quarterly Meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 12, downstairs in the Town Office Building. The Business Meeting will start at 6:30 pm followed by a short program at 7:30 pm, presented by Paul Miller, on the history of the Miller Farm, including pictures, stories, etc. (The Miller family will host an open house on July 17 to celebrate the farm’s 100th anniversary.)
Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public and the building is handicapped accessible.
The Vernon Historical Museum, located at 4201 Fort Bridgman Road, is open for the season. The Museum is open each year from June through September on Sunday afternoons from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and also by appointment. We greatly appreciate all who help and support our work in preserving and presenting local history.
The Vernon Historians will host a “Mums & More Sale” on Sunday, August 21, from 2:00 until 4:00 pm (or maybe 5:00 pm). It will be held outside at the Museum building on Fort Bridgman Road. We have space for two Vernon artisans/crafters. We will do all advertising. Vendors will have to supply their own tables, chairs, and pop-up tents (for shade). The fee is 10% of the vendors’ sales for the day. If interested in taking part, please contact Peg Frost at 254-2263 or firstname.lastname@example.org. for information.
