Members and Visitors are Welcome
We’re looking forward to David Rashed’s presentation as well as greeting friends and neighbors. I imagine we’ll all have some “snow stories” to share – perhaps your story will fall into the category, “Can you top this!”. Every Stanhope Historical Society meeting includes a light dessert and social time following the talk.
Many thanks to all the equipment operators who have laboured mightily to clear highways, roads, and driveways following the blizzard earlier this week.
