Monday night was the grand opening of the World War I display at the Lordly House Museum located at 133 Central Street. This show features artifacts and pictures of our local service men and women,war bonds,maps,post cards and all sorts of stuff. There were cadets and songs from the era and a dedication by veteran George Hilchie. It was fabulous. Get over to Lordy House this month to check it out and learn about the Lordly connection to WW1.

Last Thursday the Rope Loft hosted the "ABF" opening regatta of the season. It was a ton of fun and even Richard won a prize with his schooner "Endeavour" despite having no mast and therefore no sails. Go figure.
