Old Business

Mary distributed the posters for the April 9th NHHC program, “19th Century American Popular Music” by Eric Bye. We arranged for refreshments for the evening.

We completed the time log for our Conservation Commission Inventory of Natural and Historical Resources to send to Jeff Littleton at Moosewood Ecological Services. We have logged many more than our promised forty hours.

New Business

The Hour Glass Readers presentation of “Oedipus Rex” will be held at Jones Hall on May 21 at 7:00 PM.

We agreed to check The Shopper News for information about a Memorial Day essay contest for the schools.

Loisanne has arranged with Phyllis Peterson to give a bus tour of historical locations in Marlow and a museum tour to the children of John D. Perkins Elementary School. The tenative date is May 5. The rain date is May 12. Ms. Peterson is excited to have us do this.

We need to know soon whether or not we will have The Chrsitmas Trees Inn as a venue for the Monadnock Music Dinner, so Mary will write to Pat Gallup to find out.

The first meeting of Marlow’s 250th Anniversary Committee is April 22. It will be an organizational meeting. The discussion will be on how to celebrate with an emphasis on including free activities. We discussed the possibility of having an exhibit of old photographs, an exhibit of Marlow artists (past and present) and making a Marlow calendar.

We need another program for August. We discussed choosing another NHHC program or having a local person speak. Mary suggested a local man who speaks on baseball.

The next meeting will be held at the Chapel on May 6 at 6:30 PM.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:40 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
Loisanne Foster
