The Freedom Community Historical Society held an event called the Winter Festival with outdoor events, pot luck supper and Freedom Follies consisting of local talent!  It was a very exciting fun filled day.  We had snow, it was cold, and the Freedom Rec. Comm. provided a warm shelter at the Town Office together with hot food, drinks, snacks and the meeting of friends and neighbors.  Pot Luck was delish and the Grange was filled.  Follies were fantastic!  Prentice Grassi was the MC and did a fine job.  The talent was unbelievable!  One never realized how much wonderful talent we have in our town.  Hoping that for those that didn’t attend, you will try to attend next year.  I guarantee you will certainly enjoy yourself.
