A Village Green

This fall THS will raise, level and re-grass the big front lawn at the Hall-Dyer House,
bordering Main Street and Great Hill Road in Tamworth Village. We are very grateful to
have received a $10,000, 50-50 matching grant from the Gibson-Woodbury Charitable
Foundation in North Conway for our ‘Lawn-Raising’. Several local contractors have
kindly offered to do the work at reduced rates. This project will make the lawn safer, more attractive, and more useful to the community. In addition to using the space for THS events, we’d like to make this central location available to other groups. We’ll need to ask for event insurance, with THS as an added insured, and we’ll develop a set of simple rules for use. Think yard sales, cookouts, parties, craft demos, band concerts, auctions, and croquet matches! Maybe some of the celebrations for Tamworth’s 250th, in 2016, could take place on this new Village Green!
