On Thursday, April 11th at 7 PM, Heritage will have its own Antiques Roadshow, New Freedom style. If you would like to participate, please bring an antique to the meeting at the New Freedom Museum at 7:00 pm. It can be something related to New Freedom or a special family piece or a “mystery” or something just plain interesting. Your treasure can be a toy, pottery, photograph, art work, furniture, glass, a tool, clock, jewelry, linens, a book, rugs, quilts, etc... Since we don’t have our own staff of expert appraisers, please come prepared to tell us everything you know about your “piece”: what it is, where you got it, value, age. The host will guide you through your story. Maybe we will discover some hidden treasures! Whatever the case, it will be a fun evening!
For all the vendors at the New Freedom Fest, New Freedom Rail Trail Cafe will be open at 8 am for you to stop in and fuel up before the festivities start!
New Freedom Lion Club Annual Christmas Tree Lighting is Saturday, November 25 at the New Freedom Green Community Park at 5:45 PM. Santa will arrive at 6:30 PM.
