on Saturday, August 9, from 6–8 PM,

It's Old Home Weekend in Newmarket!
And on Saturday, in between the "Lobsta Feed" and music by
7th Son going
on behind the High School at Leo Landroche field, come on downtown and
join "We Dig Newmarket" for a Downtown Walking Tour (6–8
pm) and discover what's new and what's planned for the downtown.
Learn and ask questions with
four stops on a stroll through town, covering downtown revitalization
(at the Elm St. parking lot), downtown construction status (across
from the post office, at Arbor Park), mill development (at the
lower millyard), and community space in the mills (mills
courtyard). New info sessions will begin every 15 minutes or so. There will also be free ice cream being served up along
the waterfront down at Schanda Park, with live music performed by The
Ray Demarco Trio. The event is sponsored by "We Dig Newmarket."
And, of course, don't forget
to stop in at the gallery here at Ampers&, to view a special collection
of large-format images of Newmarket's mills, from the archives of
the Newmarket Historical Society.
