Blue Berry Picnic sponsored by the Historical Society - 2009

Town Activities | Blue Berry Picnic - 2008

The parking lot is full, indicating a good turnout, as is the community room at the refurbished library in West Hartland.

Paul and Irene fire up the grill for hot dogs and hamburgers.   All of the sweets for this occasion contain blueberries.
Mandy and Al set up and test the microphone and audio system for the afternoon’s speakers.

As usual we have for sale all the mini buildings and other memorabilia.   Townspeople peruse both old and new hooked items that were on display.

It’s time for everyone to line up for something hot off the grill.   After people finished eating, Joan introduced the speaker whose talk you can listen to below.
