Andover July 22
Hello Andover friends. Olde Home Day is creeping upon us – hard to believe. The O.H.D. Committee has been hard at work for the past few months preparing for the “big” day. Let's hope the weather cooperates.
Andover Olde Home Days are Aug. 6, 7 and 8. This year's theme is “School Days.” It would be nice to see more floats this year; round up your family, friends, workers and throw one together! Don't forget, there are cash prizes for the first three winners of floats in the parade – $100, $50 and $25. New this year is the tractor pull, which will be held after the tractor obstacle race.
