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. Buy your tickets from FOHW committee members, at the transfer station, at kiosks about town, or here on the website. Enjoy viewing the race from the safety and comfort of your home on Facebook at noon. This race is a fundraiser to support the events of Old Home Week. May the fastest duck win!
The 2021 Freedom Old Home Week theme is “United in Freedom”. Our community has been supportive of each other during this pandemic and we believe this theme reflects this. This year’s t-shirt was designed by Abigail Jones. The design will also be available in hoodies. Show your Freedom spirit by purchasing one! Remember, the clothing is only available during this summer.
The 2021 tile is the design of Freedom’s own Barbara McAvoy. Collectors will want to add this commemorative tile to their collection. You don’t have a collection? Nothing like the present to start one!
Both the t-shirt and tile design will be revealed on June 26 here on our website.
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 Committee had to cancel Ducky Day and Old Home Week in 2020.
The FOHW committee is thrilled to announce that there will be a 2021 Old HOme Week! Without a doubt, this longstanding tradition will look a bit different than in past years. To safeguard our community’s health, we have established guiding principles for all FOHW-sponsored events. These include ensuring that events are Covid-conscious, safe, family friendly, and flexible.
SAVE THESE DATES!
Stay tuned. The full schedule of events will be revealed here on June 26.
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! For more details, please email FreedomFOHW@gmail.com.
