An enjoyable afternoon for Monadnock at Home members. 

This is an annual event of the Jaffrey Village Improvement Society.  Please consider yourself cordially invited.  The celebration licks off at 12:00 with a reading of the U.S. Declaration of Independence in the Meeting House, followed by a rousing rendition of Yankee Doodle Dandy.  Next, stay for the Ice Cream Social on the lawn in front of the Horse Sheds behind the Meetinghouse.   Then, visit the Melville Academy; a historic museum featuring an academy of the early 1800’s that provided a classical education for young people. Finally, you may like to stop at the Little Red Schoolhouse on the Common, where a docent will talk about early education for children in the good old days.  Location: Jaffrey Center- 1 ½ mi. West of downtown Jaffrey. Call the MaH office at 603-371-0809 with any questions. No R.S.V.P. needed.
