Bolton 300th Events

The Bolton 300th Anniversary Committee has scheduled events for every month of 2020. Although some will appeal primarily to residents of Bolton there are quite a few that will be of interest to Vernon residents too.

Events that might be of interest to Vernon are listed below. Descriptions will be added as they become available, but you might want to mark your calendars.

We'll promote those that might be of interest in the Tankerhoosen Newsletter, on our MeetUp and on Facebook. For notification join our MeetUp Group or Facebook page. To receive the next newsletter Join our Mailing List.

Hope you will take advantage of them and explore what our neighbor has to offer.

Past Bolton 300th Events

The following events attended by some from Vernon have already taken place as part the Tricentennial. Click on images for full size.

January 15 - Bolton Street Names

Ever wonder where our street names came from?

Most names weren't assigned until the 1900's for mail delivery. Some were named for local farmers, others for businesses or features of the landscape.

Bolton Historian JOHN TOOMEY packed the Bentley Library for this fascinating talk. Maybe we can do one for Vernon.

The Bolton Historical Society is involved in many of the events through this Tricentennial year.

January 1- Bolton Land Trust New Year's Day Hike

On January 1, New Year's Day, the Bolton Land Trust held a walk through their new property, the Bobcat Wood Community Forest, led by their president GWEN MARRION. Over 50 people took part on a beautiful crisp day.

In Vernon we often join hikes led by the Northern CT Land Trust or the Manchester Land Conservation Trust without realizing our neighbor has 10 properties with about 250 acres, 300 members and regular hikes.
