Old Home Week

Old Home Week is a practice that originated in the New England region of the United States, similar to a holiday or festival.  In its beginning, in the 19th - 20th century, it involved a municipal effort to invite former residents of a village, town, or city - usually individuals who grew up in the municipality as children and moved elsewhere in adulthood - to visit the Old Home, the parental household and home town.

Our idea is to have events around one week each summer so our former residents and guests can be as busy as they please while checking out what's new in town.
