History calendar to be available
Pomfret Town Historian Todd Langworthy has announced he will have his new 2013 Fredonia-Pomfret History Calendar available for sale at his booth at the Fredonia Farm Festival next weekend.
The calendar features photographs of important people, places and events from the town's history over the last 200 years. The calendar is being printed in laser quality with help from Copy Boy Printing, with a cost of $10 each. The calendars will make great gifts and will only be available in limited quantities. Langworthy will also have all of his local history books available at his booth for sale, with everything able to be personally autographed by the author. In creating the new calendar Langworthy stated that "I heard many people say they would really like a calendar with some of the town's history included, so I thought it would make a nice item to have available at my Farm Festival booth this year. The topics are very interesting and I really think people will enjoy them for their own home or to send to friends and relatives as gifts for the holidays."
To reserve a copy of the calendar before the Farm Festival and guarantee having one available please call Langworthy at 679-9436.
