The Freedom Old Home Week Committee has been meeting to discuss ways they can have COVID conscious, family-focused, safe and flexible events. Ducky Day will be a virtual event this year. The date is Saturday, June 26 and more details will follow on how people can participate. Old Home Week will kick off on Friday, July 30 and will end on Sunday, August 8. More details on what events will take place will be provided later on.
Thanks to the help of the community taking the theme survey, the theme this year is “United in Freedom, 2021”. It has been a long year with many challenges. Our community has been supportive of each other during this time, and we believe this theme reflects this.
Can you visualize what this theme means to you? The FOHW Committee would love to feature your image on our annual t-shirt! Entries can be sent via email to FreedomFOHW@gmail.com or may be mailed to FOHW, PO Box 359, Freedom, NH 03836. Receipt of your submission needs to be dated or postmarked no later than April 15, 2021.
We are also looking for submissions for our annual FOHW tile. If you are interested, please email or mail as mentioned above. Submissions are also due by April 15.
For more than 120 years, Freedom Old Home Week has been a cherished and celebrated tradition in the Freedom community. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and concern for the community’s health and safety, the Freedom Old Home Week Association (FOHW) had to cancel Ducky Day and Old Home Week in 2020.
Now that a vaccine is becoming more widely available, our Association is cautiously optimistic and has begun laying the groundwork for a safe and Covid-conscious 2021 celebration of this long-standing tradition.
SAVE THESE DATES!
We can’t wait to share more details with you as our planning progresses!
Without a doubt, 2021 Old Home Week will look a bit different than in past years. To safeguard our community’s health despite being unable to predict what the pandemic will look like by summer, we have established guiding principles for all FOHW-sponsored events. These include ensuring that events are Covid-conscious, safe, family friendly, and flexible.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Freedom Old Home Week. We welcome all – whether you are a year-rounder, seasonal resident, or a friend of our community. Please consider getting involved with any of the following:
