To reserve a table, contact Bonnie Brooks-Burroughs at (603) 452-4725. Freedom’s Schoolhouse (currently the Freedom Town Offices) at 33 Old Portland Road is 125 years old. Built in 1895, the building was a schoolhouse until June 1983. The new Freedom Elementary School was opened on Loon Lake Road in September 1983. Who do you know who may have attended the schoolhouse?
Brooks-Burroughs is currently working on a reunion for students who attended the 1895 schoolhouse in the village. So far, she has put together a list of students who started first grade in 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970 and 1971. Eventually, she hopes to have lists of the other years. Contact Brooks-Burroughs at email@example.com if you have information to add to the list. The reunion will be held at the 1895 schoolhouse on parade day, Saturday, Aug. 1, from 1 to 3 p.m. during Old Home Week. That Bonnie is a busy girl, isn’t she?
A reminder for all Freedom residents from the First Christian Church regarding transportation needs to medical appointments, food shopping, etc., to call Patty Dumas, church secretary at (603) 539-7791. There is a group of volunteers willing to help fill the need.
