Email from Paul Hart w/Barkhamsted Historical Society to Me:
8/18/2011 – Hi Coni- I’m pretty sure you have heard about the Lighthouse Trail opening ceremony scheduled for Saturday, September 10. But I wanted to make sure you had a more formal invitation and all the details. We would very much like you to attend if at all possible. We will have our Historical Society annual meeting at 1:00 at the Tavern, which is not the most exciting event. We would be thrilled if you can attend this, but it is your option. The Trail ceremony will start about 2:00 and we hope to have a good crowd there. If you can make it we would like you to take part in the ceremony and perhaps say a few words. Ken will be our main speaker and we may have a couple of words from other dignitaries, then Ken will lead a tour of the trail and signs. It should be a fun day, and we have reached a big step in getting the trail and signs established (thanks mostly to Ken, Linne, Erik and FRCC). Having Lighthouse descendants present will make this day extra special, so I hope you can make it. Please post or forward this to all other Lighthouse descendants. Thanks so much for all your research and help! – Paul Hart/Barkhamsted Historical Society Note from Coni: I will be attending this event (flight is booked) – I have been asked to speak at this event along with doing the unveiling of the sign~ I will be in the Barkhamsted Ct. area from the 9th-11th – Looking forward to meeting some of you!
