Veterans Day

After graduate school,  I was  finally drafted  into the United States Navy in 1968 and  subsequently  applied to submarine  school; It was not fun.  However,  it  became a part of me that I shall never forget. I wish all my shipmates well and smooth sailing on this important day of remembrance. And pray for our soldiers, sailors, marines, and  air forces fighting in foreign seas and lands.

Three cheers for the FVGLA

Shown above L to R are: Norma Hartley, Rita Johnson, Mike Gurski and Terry Roberts

The Farmington Village Green and Library, FVGLA, Association was founded in 1901. Its purpose is to serve the Farmington community through library and museum services in addition to maintaining Memento Mori and the Village Green at the intersection of Route 10 and four.  This year the FGLA leadership decided to consolidate all of our programs into one booth celebrating the work of the FVGLA at the Unionville Festival.  Everyone had a great time and the booths were magnificent.  Special congratulations to our fearless team leader, Norma Hartley, for a job well done along with the whole Festival Team.
