We meet on the last Saturday of the month at 1 pm at our Museum, located at 572 Main St., Plymouth.
Our next meeting would have been August 25, but that is the weekend of the Terryville Fair, where we will have exhibits at our building at the Fairgrounds. In addition to the farming-themed items, there will be displays about World War I, including a restored WWI ambulance, courtesy of George King. We are also restoring a motorized cordwood saw which we hope to have ready for the Fair.
See you at the Fair!
The next meeting at the Museum will be September 29 at 1pm.
The Museum is open during our meetings. You are more than welcome to come to our meetings and/or tour the Museum.
