Following the Friends of the Orford Libraies’ Soup Supper

The Orford Historical Society presents GROWING UP ON AN ORFORD FARM IN THE 1950’s – 1960’s
We’ll bring together a panel of Orford residents who grew up on a variety of working family farms in Orford during the 1950’s and 1960’s to share their memories of what their lives were like during those years.
What was it like to grow up as a member of an Orford farm family?  What was that life really like then?  What kind of daily chores and responsibilities did young people have to help keep those Orford family farms functioning?  How was all that balanced with school work and other activities?  And what special things did they do for fun?  Plus memories of other farm families, neighbors, unexpected events, and perhaps even getting into trouble.
Panelists Christine Bunten, Joy Jean Wilson Dyke, Debbie Tullar O’Brien, Harry Sanborn, and George Schwarz will be moderated by Art Pease.  Please do plan to join us for this special evening.
