Virtual Ice Cream Social!
CHS is keeping up our tradition of an Ice Cream Social and Stories of Chatham with a twist this summer: to keep everyone safe - physically distant, but socially close - we will have a virtual Ice Cream Social on August 21.
The ice cream will be made and donated by Bob Benes. Pints of vanilla, red raspberry, blueberry, and maple walnut must be pre-ordered for curbside pickup at the CHS schoolhouse at 1061 Main Road, Chatham between 5:30 and 6:30 PM on the 21st. The maple syrup has been donated by Dale McClure and the berries donated by the Maloney-Hill family. The ice cream will sell for $4 per pint, with a limit of two pints per family, and can be ordered by calling 603-694-3388. Orders must be in by August 19. Payment is due at pickup.
The Society encourages everyone to snap a photo of themselves with their family or housemates that evening and post it on the Chatham NH Historical Society Facebook page, and include their connection to Chatham and a memory of Chatham. Those not on Facebook can email their photo and memory to the Society at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 603-694-3388 to share their memories.
President Jeanne Eastman says, “This will require community participation, and it has the potential to be a lovely time of sharing and learning about some of Chatham's past. People can participate whether they live locally or far away, eat ice cream or not. We are expecting an exciting and enjoyable evening.”
Call 603-694-3388 for more information.
We are excited to present memories of former days in Chatham, generously shared by community members.
