Winter Holiday on Newbury Common Sat., Dec. 14, 2013 10:30AM- 9:00PM Outdoor & indoor events
Candlelight Service December 29th 7:00PM Newbury First Congregational UCC, Newbury VT
Throughout 2013 we have been celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the granting of charters (issued May 18, 1763) to the Town of Haverhill and the Town of Newbury by the Colonial Governor, Benning Wentworth. We have focused historical events that shaped the lives of people in the area, while reminiscing about farms, mills, stores, schools, churches and other elements that made us who we were, and who we are today.
We conclude this year-long celebration with the last of 12 monthly lectures on Sunday, December 8, a fun-for-all-ages Holiday on the Common in Newbury on Saturday, December 14, and a candlelight service at Newbury Congregationall UCC Church on Sunday, December 29th. (Details under the 'Events" tab.) We hope residents and friends will join together as we celebrate these communities.
The 250th anniversary - a chance to revel in our heritage!
