Enter the 2017 FOHW T-Shirt Design Contest
As you sit watching the falling snow, put your mind in gear and think of the warmth of the summer and the 119th Old Home Week (July 28 – August 6). The Old Home Week Committee is pleased to announce the 2017 theme for our parade and t-shirt is “Rooted and Growing in Freedom”. Can you visualize what this theme means to you? We would love to feature your image on this year’s t-shirt! Entries can be sent to FOHW@yahoo.com or FOHW, PO Box 359, Freedom NH 03836. Receipt of your submission must be dated or postmarked no later than April 15, 2017. Call, text or email Nancy Griffin (603-730 4814, FOHW@yahoo.com) with any questions. The 2017 Freedom Old Home Week t-shirts will be unveiled and available for purchase on Ducky Day, Saturday, June 24.
Volunteer to Serve in a Specific Role or Event
Current volunteer openings include:
- Committee Secretary: The Secretary takes notes of the discussion during the monthly meetings, and provides the meeting minutes to the committee chairperson for review. (The chairperson distributes the minutes to the rest of the committee.) A laptop computer is available for use during the meetings.
- Tent and Table Assemblers: We need people to help with the moderately physical job of assembling and disassembling event tents and folding tables. The work goes very fast (usually under an hour) when we have at least 8 helpers. Specific opportunities include:
- Ducky Day setup on Friday, June 23 at the Mill Pond in the village, time TBD.
- Ducky Day take-down on Saturday, June 24, approximately 12:30 pm.
- More to come!
