Montville Town News

By Fran Gonzalez | Aug 03, 2014

My apologies for missing last week's column.  Between work and being away on the weekend, I submitted my column late. :(  At least the online version was available.

Montville Field Day is Saturday, August 9. Mark your calendars! Organizers would still greatly appreciate potluck donations and auction items. If you would like to bring a potluck item or have something to donate to the auction, send Karen York an email at Any item would be greatly appreciated!

The Montville Historical Society's 10th Anniversary Cake Off! will be happening at the Field this year. Contestants must have been first, second or third place winners in previous Cake Offs. Prizes include fabulous stuff, cash and notiety of course! For more information contact Hannah at 323-5612. What a year to be a judge!

Story Slam – Saturday, August 9th, 7:00pm at the Library. The theme this year is "Oops!" Come tell your story and listen to friends and neighbors tell theirs. They have to be true stories and they have to be short stories. After that, it is up to you. Everyone who tells a story gets a free, original Story Slam t-shirt, donated by Liberty Graphics.
