East Middlebury community picnic will honor lifers
EAST MIDDLEBURY — At its annual Community Picnic on Sunday, June 3, East Middlebury will honor its lifelong residents. In conjunction with the celebration, the East Middlebury Historical Society is conducting a project to record these citizens. Local resident and film professional Corey Hendrickson has offered to take individual pictures for a permanent record of those being honored.
Starting at noon, lifelong residents are invited to visit the parlor of the Sarah Partridge Community House to have a picture taken. They are asked to provide their name, the number of years of residence, and the street addresses of their homes. To be included in the project, residents’ parents should have lived in East Middlebury when he/she was born. It is possible that the youngest resident could be less than a month old.
Children through college age will make up the first category. The middle category will include people who might have left for college or employment, but who are now permanently settled in the community. The last category is for those who have spent long lives in East Middlebury — a number of whom are 80 years plus. Our oldest resident is over 100 years old and is included in the project based on the number of years spent living in the community.
The East Middlebury community is now composed of people in all age groups and from diversified populations. This project is designed to make a record of one these noteworthy groups.
