Two great programs coming up soon!

Sunday, October 2 from 4:30 to 7:00 pm: Bluegrass music by WILD BRANCH on the Round Church Lawn. 

Wild Branch is a bluegrass band from Vermont. With a focus on instrumental bluegrass, fiddle tunes, and old-time music, the band also features traditional bluegrass rhythm and vocal harmony. The group currently includes Dan Johnson on guitar and lead vocals, Josh Halman (Queen City Cut Ups) on mandolin and tenor, Adam Frehm (Hot Pickin’ Party) on dobro, Joe Cleary (Modern Grass Quintet) on fiddle, and Eli Goldman (Lillian and the Muses, Queen City Cut Ups) on bass.

There will be parking available on site and overflow cars can park in the town’s designated lots. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at a very reasonable cost. Bring blankets or chairs, dancing shoes and smiling faces. We do ask for you to leave alcoholic drinks and furry friends at home.

This event is free and we encourage all ages to join us. If you can donate, a suggested donation of $10 per person to the Richmond Historical Society will be gladly accepted at the entrance gates and throughout the evening. Any proceeds from this evening will help in the upkeep of the Round Church so our community can enjoy it for generations to come.

Gates will open at 4:30 pm, music starts at 5, and we will be closing down around 7:30. In case of inclement weather, the concert may be moved inside the church or cancelled if the weather is severe. 

Hope to see you there!

Fire Brimstone and sacred Groves
Dr. Amy Howe on October 4th at the Huntington Town Hall.

Join us for “Fire, Brimstone and Sacred Groves: The Life and Legacy of Charles Bowles, Huntington’s Early 19th Century Black Preacher”. Learn about what we know of the life of an early Huntington Free Will Baptist minister and settler, Charles Bowles. Who was this African American itinerant Baptist minister, Revolutionary War veteran, and early landowner in Huntington? Families converted under Bowles’ ministry would build the town’s first church building, shared by both Free Will and Standing Baptist groups. Historical records describe how the life of this building began with the humble sourcing of neighboring timber and fundraising through the sale of goose eggs. As the thriving religious community eventually changed, the building served as the town of Huntington’s first town hall and then its first volunteer fire department. The “Old Firehouse” remains Huntington’s oldest town building today and speaks to a storied history of service to the town.

This lecture is supported by the Huntington Historical and Community Trust and Champlain College.

Great news!  Bolton Bone Builders is back!

Tuesday, September 27 at 10:30AM


Bolton Fire Station

MUST WEAR N95/KN95 MASKS:  Hydration should be outdoors.

Bone Builders is an exercise program designed to prevent (and even reverse) the negative effects of osteoporosis. The program is based on research conducted and published by Tufts University which shows that strength training just twice a week dramatically reduces the risk of fractures due to the disease. Study participants gained bone density, became stronger and improved their balance. These health gains significantly reduced the incidence of falling. Bone Builders classes fill a vital need for regular physical exercise as well as increased social interaction, both well-known components of healthy aging.  All are welcome, equipment is provided.  No charge.

Deb Shelby will be leading Bone Builders in Bolton at the Bolton Fire Station. Please let Deb  know if you might be interested or have questions.
