Oh, To Be a Kid Again!

The Friends of the Fiske Free Library and the Claremont Historical Society will present their 2010 series of monthly programs from April to June. The "Oh, To Be a Kid Again” series will feature familiar childhood activities, from organized groups such as the Boy and Girl Scouts to classic toys such as dolls and model trains.

To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Boys Scouts of America, the series will begin on Wednesday, April 28 with a program featuring the founders of both Boy and Girl Scouting. Kate Carney, Newton, Massachusetts, will present "Juliette Low, 1920: Founder of America‘s Girl Scouts.” Dick Sullivan, Natick, Massachusetts, will speak briefly as Lord Baden Powell, founder of the scouting movement.

On Wednesday May 19, Steve Dalessio, model train enthusiast from Claremont, will speak about what has been called the “world’s greatest hobby.”

The final program will take place on Tuesday, June 29 when Lydia Brooks Raymond, doll doctor from Kennebunkport, Maine, will speak about doll history and restoration.

All programs will be held at 7:00 PM in the Trinity Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 120 Broad Street.

Additional support for this series is being provided by the Sullivan Lodge, No. 12, I.O.O.F., LaValley Building Supply, Inc. and Common Man Inn.
