Old Home Day Committee: OHD Committee would like to reinstate old time activities like the Bed Race, Musical Chairs, etc. prior to the parade and before the music. We need a town group or committee to sponsor the event and set it up. Most events will take less than an hour and only need a few people to organize them. There are lots of Clubs and Organizations in Town - perhaps one could step up to perform this vital and most missed fun at Old Home Day. This year is our 120th Anniversary. Contact Kathleen Walker at the Old Home Day Committee at or call 508-248- 2200 x 2408
