2006 Shoreham Festival

April 21, 2006

Plans for this year's Festival (September 2) are well underway. Here's an update:

“The meeting March 11 went great. A lot of ideas were started and are the in process of being accomplished. One thing we did find we need is volunteers to help in the evening, cleaning up after the meal and putting tables away. We also are looking for some donations for the raffle we are having during the day. We have also decided to do a Bingo during the day (and maybe night), and the flea market will make its way back to the Shoreham Festival (donations will be welcome starting in August). There will also be a few 50/50 raffles throughout the day.

“Please, if you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know. The day should be complete and successful for everyone. Just come and walk in the parade or dress up and ride something. Come and enjoy. Find your town spirit. Shoreham is a fun place with great people.” [from Heidi Lanpher]


Townwide Lawn Sales—June 17 & 18

April 21, 2006

Get your closets cleaned out and your treasures ready to sell because this is the year for the Shoreham Townwide!

You can either participate and get on the map for a fee of just $10 (both days or just Saturday), or you can help benefit one of our local organizations—Shoreham Festival, Newton Academy, or the School Transportion Committee— by donating your items to be sold at the lawn sale at the firehouse (location #1).

We hope that everyone gets a chance to participate since we will not have another townwide until 2008. June 18th is an optional day and will be advertised on the map if the you specify it.

I will need to know if you want to be on the map for the Townwide Lawn Sale by June 1st so I can get the maps made. I can't work on this June 9–15, so please do not wait or I can not make it happen. Sale tags will be delivered to you. Advertising for the sale will start the first two weeks of June. [post from Heidi Lanpher]

May 6: Green up Day & Scrap Metal Drop

April 21, 2006

The scrap metal drop is from 8am to noon. Fence wire, aluminum… call Heidi Lanpher if not sure what’s allowed.

There will be an ice cream party and flowers donated by Golden Russett Farm as rewards for bringing in your green bags of roadside garbage. Bags should be available mid April at the Town Clerk's office, library, school, and of course through me. I hope that everyone will participate. If you see garbage too big for an individual to pick up, just let me know where it is. Remember only local town roads. I hope adults are with their children at all times on any roads during Green up. Contact me to signup for a road section to clean.

Also on May 6th is the Grade 6 Car Wash to benefit their trip to Boston. Come on out! It is at the Firehouse from 9am to 2pm. [post from Heidi Lanpher]
