JULY 20: Ice Cream Social Special Event  
The annual ice cream social is usually a birthday party in memory of founder Mary P. Wells Smith. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the memory of the late Peter S. Miller. Please join us on the lawn at 43 Church Street for ice cream, music, and memories of our late local historian and see the new Research Room named in his honor.
