News
  •  At the April 13 meeting Jason Smiley told us all about "The Eddy Family of Spirit Mediums".  The question remaining is "were they real or a hoax?"
  •  On March 9  Buzz Kuhns presented a slide show of an amazing Alaskan bike trip he took and also presented an amusing poem he wrote about "the cost of Maple Sugaring".  If you missed the maple sugaring poem you can find it on the Internet.
  • At the February meeting, Dr. Robert Sofferman showed us some amazing animal and nature photos from several of his trips in Vermont, the US and foreign countries.
  • In December the Colchester High School Chamber Choir presented a wonderful concert followed by enjoying lots of our favorite finger food and conversation with the choir members.
  • 2013 was a great year for Colchester as we celebrated the 250th anniversary of our chartering as a town. Join with the Historical Society in thanking all those who made this celebration possible.
