Barkhamsted Historical Society's Annual Meeting
Saturday September 10th we will meet at the Tavern for a pot luck lunch at NOON followed by a SHORT business meeting and a program about the recently donated glass negatives which we received from the Glastonbury Historical Society. The pictures were mostly around Riverton and dated 1900-1901 apparently taken by a member of the Ward family As usual we will have the anniversary cake for the Town. Please try to attend for the food and fellowship as well as the program.
