Dunbarton Old Home Day celebration is Sept. 15
DUNBARTON - Entertainment, food and fireworks and more will be showcased in Dunbarton for the annual Old Home Day celebration Saturday, Sept. 15.
The Old Home Day Committee sponsors the event in cooperation with the Dunbarton Recreation Commission. Commission President Lara Routhier credits Mark Wamser, Lynn Marcou, Karen Harris, Heidi Wright, Jacques Belanger, Jeff Crosby and Carrie Letellier as being essential members of the team.
“We’ve all kind of taken bits and are responsible for different parts,” said Routhier, who has worked on the event for six years. “I personally ask people to join the committee. And people reach out to the committee because they want to be part of the day.”
Many organizations in the village also work hard to support the event. The Dunbarton Garden Club will sell garden crafts as well as daffodils. The Congregational Church will host a bake sale and coffee house. And the Historical Society will host its traditional ham and bean supper.
In addition, there will be children’s activities, a parade, a geocaching table, climbing wall, live music, bee exhibit and more.
“People just want to be involved. They want to be on the town common with everyone else, being together,” said Routhier.
Dunbarton police will also be on hand to offer assistance with traffic control.
“They certainly have a presence through out the day,” said Routhier. “They organize a K-9 demonstration taking place at 2:30 p.m., which is typically organized by Officer (Jacqueline) Pelletier.”
Routhier said the event is all volunteer.
“We set aside a small chunk of money, and then we have a very generous family in town who matches that, which is always so much appreciated.”
Dunbarton Telephone also donates time and money.
“It’s all part of the big puzzle of putting this event together for the people of Dunbarton,” she said.
