This year's 4th of July was a little quieter than past years do to covid. Around this time we would of been at our booth at the Fitchburg Civics Days Block Party. Guests would of been playing ring toss, hopefully becoming a member-owner of the co-op or maybe getting a souvenir. Though all of that is available on our website the in person connection isn't.

The stories of parents who met there and who are still together for 50 years. Or the roller skating shows, the performances at the ballroom or playhouse. Or the stories of it being people's first job and stayed for years later.

Though America's birthday may be quieter this year we still want to hear those stores from all of you. Please feel free to post your favorite moment with your family and or friends.

Happy Birthday America

From all of us at

The New Whalom Cooperative

Since the beginning of the co-op we've been hearing great stories of Whalom Park, the roller rink and most recent many stories about the fireworks on Lake Whalom. We'd like to hear about those stories. Your stories about your time watching the fireworks at Lake Whalom.

2020 has slowed to a crawl due to the recent pandemic. Local events have been cancelled or postponed to mid to late fall which makes it hard for us to travel with our pop-up Whalom Park museum.

We presented some video tours of our museum items online. Some of which have never before seen. This only makes us want to do more. We'd like to present online events but we would need your help to make that possible.

We are looking for individuals or companies that may want to become a sponsor of the co-op to offset the cost(s) it will take to continue our efforts. Any offer will be considered. Please DM your questions.

Stay Safe and Healthy!!

Throw Back Thursday of Whalom's Flivers antique car kiddieland ride. Though today we're all social distancing we can't help thinking back to a special time. When families came out to picnic, ride the Flyer Comet or the carousel (depending on your speed.), taking in a show or play a game or two. We want you to know that this is temporary and we will get through it! Stay safe and healthy everyone!!
