ampers& gallery past events: ONE DAY SPECIAL EVENT


HISTORIC MILL PHOTOS | a glimpse into Newmarket's historic past
august 9, 2008

Join us for a special viewing on Saturday, August 9, from 6–8 PM,
brought to you by the Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance (LACA)

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.


We Dig Newmarket members include: the Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance, the Newmarket Business Association, the Newmarket Community Development Corporation, and the Newmarket Main Street Corporation; in partnership with the Town of Newmarket. The group's main purpose is to help promote the revitalization of the downtown, and support local businesses during construction.
