Sunday, Dec. 11, at 4 pm (set-up and social hour), the Society will hold its annual pot-luck Christmas dinner at Thompson Hall, next to the Congregation-Christian Church. The turkeys, mashed potatoes, punch, and shrimp cocktail have already been promised, so whatever else members wish to create and/or bring (vegetable dishes, rolls and butter, desserts, etc.) will just add to the feast. Dinner will be served buffet-style at 5 pm.
Donations of non-perishable food for the less fortunate are also encouraged, in keeping with the spirit of the season and the established tradition of this event.
To get to the Franklin Historical Society in the Webster/Tay house from Route 3, turn at this sign onto Holy Cross Road.

Franklin Historical Society -- Franklin, New Hampshire
The Franklin Historical Society was incorporated in 1981 to study and preserve the history of Franklin.
Housed in the Historic Webster Tay/House, a part of Daniel Webster's "Elms Farm" from 1799-1855, later the New Hampshire Orphanage from 1871-1959, and now the Webster Place Recovery Center, the Society meets on the first Thursday of the month from April through November.
