The Ridgefield Historical Society is excited to announce the debut of the Ridgefield History Club on Tuesday, May 23, at 10 am in the historic 1714 David Scott House at 4 Sunset Lane.
The Ridgefield History Club, a program of the Historical Society, will meet regularly throughout the year to discuss the history of Ridgefield and all its villages including Branchville, Titicus, Farmingville, and Ridgebury. Everyone is invited to attend this fun and free gathering. Bring your love of history and your curiosity as we explore the interesting past of our community.
Jack Sanders, who has written 10 books on Ridgefield history, will be on hand. This is a great opportunity to connect with other history enthusiasts and learn something new. The club is an informal story-telling session (not a presentation or lecture) where everyone sits in a circle and shares their memories related to a specific topic in Ridgefield’s history. The discussion will be audio recorded and cataloged in the Historical Society’s archive to preserve the stories of all of Ridgefield’s people, places, and events for future generations. Attendees are encouraged to share their memories with the group or just come and listen to the conversation about our town’s past. Be sure to bring related photos and objects about Ridgefield’s history for show and tell!
The first gathering will be an “open session” without a predetermined topic. Share whatever is on your mind from Ridgefield’s past. What are your favorite memories of Ridgefield? Did you ever go to the soda foundation at Squash’s? Do you have any reminiscences from your schooldays? How about interesting Ridgefield happenings that you witnessed? Any memorable family traditions or activities? Do you have stories about interesting neighbors or characters in town?
Because parking at the Scott House is limited, registration is required to attend. Carpooling is highly encouraged. For more information, visit www.ridgefieldhistoricalsociety.org or contact the Historical Society at 203-438-5821 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
