The Guilford 5K Race & Freedom Fest will be held Saturday, July 11 at Broad Brook Grange.

The event will begin with a 5K race and continue with two hours of family fun, food, and music.  Events are an hour earlier this year, so that the race can be run in cooler temperatures. 

Registration for Guilford’s 4th annual 5K run takes place from 8 to 9 am, with the registration fee of $15 benefitting the Grange Building Fund.  The race starts at 9 am beginning at the Grange, and takes a circuit past the Town Office and School, through woodlands and up Barney Hill, through farmland, and back through historic Guilford Center to the Grange. There will be a number of prizes for runners.  John Majonen will again manage this event, and may be contacted for more information at <majonen@gmail.com> or 802-257-4067.

Sonnet Reading in Guilford Wednesday

SONNET READING IN GUILFORD MAY 13

I am pleased to be collaborating with Tom Ragle, also of Guilford,  on a public reading of Sonnets on Wednesday, May 13.  The 7:00 pm program will take place at Guilford Community Church, and is admission-free with donations welcome.

Tom is well-known as past president of Marlboro College, where he also taught literature.  He is a recently-published poet, has given many readings of classic English poetry on WVEW, and is a longtime member of Write Action.

I have been reading aloud, both poetry and especially Christmas stories, since I arrived in Guilford in 1968.
