Our General Membership Meetings and our programs are held on the second Wednesday of the month at the Newmarket Town Hall. However, the October program on Polish Immigration will be held upstairs at the Polish Club on Central Street, in keeping with their anniversary year special events.
The next meeting of the 300th Steering Committee will be held downstairs at the Newmarket Town Hall auditorium 6pm Wednesday, May 17th.
Newmarket 300 wants your suggestions of who/where/what best represents Newmarket — past or present. To do this, you’ll need to complete a survey oddly called SURVEY MONKEY.
To reach the survey you can either go to this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6BZ6Q7G
or use this QR Code on your mobile phone:
The survey asks 4 questions:
1 Which person, place or thing should be included in this book?
2.What is the significance?
3.What do you think would be a good image of this topic?
4.What is the most important thing about Newmarket’s history to you?
You can complete the survey as many times as you like. The more suggestions we receive, the better!
Newmarket’s celebration for the 250th was held in August 1977 - a ten-day event that was jam packed with events, dinners, breakfasts, parties, lectures, performances, and parades. This time around the plan is to create a year-long celebration whereby town organizations, businesses, and social groups present events throughout the year.
We wish to acknowledge of business partners:
We wish to thank Proulx Oil and Propane, and Chinburg Builders who generously donated funds
for our efforts to acquire new artifacts and preserve those manuscripts, diaries, letters, and articles already in our collection.
