History day

WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Historical Society held its annual History Day on Aug. 7 with modest attendance. The event was organized by Vicki May.

Annella Burnham and Mary Billings had charge of the food sale with a good variety supplied by the members. Curator Larry Billings gave tours. He also provided roses for decoration and some handouts.

In the parking lot the following craftspeople set up tables: Madeline Hunt, Diane Hunt, Elena Noyes, Joyce Howe, Jerry Shimamura, Elizabeth Whitman, Vicki May, Alma Merrill and Florence Merrill. There was everything from homemade jams to watercolor paintings. Earlier in the year the society had a successful flea market and some of those who set up tables there returned.

Election of officers will be Sept. 11. The museum is open Saturdays 1 to 4 p.m. until the end of August.
