The Celebration of Fall will be next Saturday, Oct. 6. The annual event is a benefit for Gardner Roberts Memorial Library and will be at the Library/Town Office complex on Ferry Road in Hanover. Featured will be craft items, books, food sale, hot foods (chili and hot dogs) and a large yard sale with a lot of new items. A very popular event is the raffling of theme baskets assembled and donated by individuals. A picture by Chris Howe has been donated and will be raffled. Stop by from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and take advantage of all the great deals or just visit for a while. Raffle tickets for a handmade quilt crafted by the Bees will be sold and the winner drawn on Nov. 6, Election Day.
