This evening Steve Hal will give a presentation about his recent trip to the Holy Land. Participants will view Nazareth, Bethlehem and Jerusalem as well as the Jordan River plus beautiful pictures of native flowers. I’ve seen this program and it is excellent. The time is 6 p.m. at the Christian Education Building of the First Congregational Church.
This Saturday, Sept. 21, the Andover Historical Society will be holding an open house at both of their locations, the main building on Elm Street in the village and at the East Andover School House from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The school house is set up as a one-room school much as it was when students from East Andover attended there. At the main building the program will be farming and farm implements. If you have something to share, please bring it or if you have something you want to identify, the society will help you hone in on the original use of the item.
