The Montville Historical Society announces that the Kingdom Schoolhouse will be open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. during Field Day events on Saturday, located on Center Road next to the Town Office. We hope visitors will stop by to browse the collections and chat with members.

Liberty Fire Department needs your help. They currently have 10 active members on their roster who are able to respond, which puts a lot of work onto few members. They are looking for people willing to learn the firefighting business. We need everyone from traffic control and pump operators to interior and exterior firefighters; everyone has something that they can contribute. If interested, please call Chief Gillespie at 542-3794 for more information.

We will also be hosting a fine crafts sale. Several local crafters have purchased table space and will be selling their artwork at the library:

Betsy Levine – Handmade silver and gemstone earrings and a few other handcrafted jewelry items.

Joan Martis – Tote bags made from recycled sailboat sails as well as a variety of small notebooks, journals and cards made primarily from repurposed paper.

Kerry Black – Table runners, potholders with heat resistant batting, and a number of other quilted items

Maya Critchfield – Art and tools for the maker and mender: sewing kits, pincushions, artist smocks, prints, and more.

Brian Hurt – Wooden ware.

Barb Rehmeyer – An assortment of handmade crafts made by volunteers.

Sett Balise – Also for sale at Barb’s table will be pottery made by Sett Balise – locally made, handcrafted ceramics made with durability and functionality in mind.

Buy a special gift for someone. Or buy a little something for yourself. Whichever, please stop by and support these local artisans.
