November, 1973

Old newspaper clipping are a nearly endless fount of amusing and intriguing information.  The Historical Society is lucky to have a set of clipping from a variety of sources during the 1970’s.

So what was of interest, newsworthy, some forty years ago?

Baking competitions for several high-school girls

A Christmas Fair by the Eastern Star Organization, along with a Garden Club scholarship

The idea of an Inland Wetlands Commission, a new judicial town board, not yet approved

The Energy Crisis: and ways of minimizing fuel use for schools, home-owners, and a plea to send Christmas Cards early because of the fuel crisis.

New license plates for town vehicles: they would now be NHD-XX rather than random

And so forth!
