To The Daily Sun,
Our participating Eagle Scout candidate this year at Sanbornton's July 23 Old Home Day is Logan Morrison, who will be collecting donations of non-perishables for food pantry distribution, or money toward that goal. He'll be at Life-Safety Building.
We'll have vendors in the library field, and demonstrators in Currier Field. Candidates for office under the "Sanbornton Votes" banner. Any filed candidates looking to meet Sanbornton voters, please come along and give us some time and literature. Walk in the parade.
The day starts with Sanbornton Historical Society's 8 a.m.-plus pancake breakfast in Lane Tavern. Lunches will be at our new "food court" between the church and Old Town Hall.
As last year, we'll have free cake slices served out with Rock Salt Creamery's delicious cashew-based ice cream. Sorbet for those who can't do nuts.
Thanks ahead of time to our many volunteer cake bakers. Parade-time (3 p.m.) will follow on the heels of cake and ice cream. Line up is at the top of Tower Hill, and our theme this year is "Celebrate Sports and Recreation." We hope some family groups will discover a way with that theme to walk in the parade too.
This year we hear that our selectmen will be participants in the Balloon Burst Booth loaned to us by Franklin Savings Bank! Fun for all, right there, at Life Safety Building. Same location — Brad Crosby will hold a cribbage tournament if players will call him ahead of time so he can set up a schedule. Call Brad at 286-8605. A Market Basket-donated $50 money card will be the top prize.
Thank you to the more than 40 T-shirt sponsors who've given us the wherewithal to pay the bills. We appreciate each and every one of you. Public can buy T-shirts at $5 each that day.
Co-chairs Dave Witham (286-9590) and Lynn Chong (934-6486) will answer any questions.
Lynn R. Chong
