Here is a special date to save as we all prepare for Thanksgiving next week.

Tuesday, December 3rd is GIVING TUESDAY, a global event that shines a light on all nonprofit causes around the world. Consider the organizations that mean something to you and give to as many as you can. We also ask you to consider The Park Theatre as well. Thank you and we will remind everyone again as we draw closer to "the most special Tuesday of the year."

OH WHAT A NIGHT! The rain was mostly absent last evening... just a slight drizzle now and then. It did not stop the hundreds of children and parents (and grandparents) that came dowtown for their treats. Another wonderful Halloween in Jaffrey. Thanks again to TEAM Jaffrey for pullling it all together. Also, a big thanks for Scott Weaver & RiteAid for their many contributions to the event.

FROM THE ARCHIVES OF THE PARK...
We have saved many items from the original Park Theatre and will be restoring and incorporating them into the new Park Theatre. Here is one of two sconces that were on the side walls of the theatre. You could adjust the colors for different effects. Some of the art deco design elements of the sconce were incorporated into the architecture of the new theatre. We are beginning the restoration process by rewiring them to today's code standards. Don't worry that you don't see the glass. It is intact and stored safely away. These sconces will go back to their original positions in the theatre.
