Celebrating 200 Years in August 2020

The Strafford Historical Society has already started planning our town's 200th anniversary week of activities in August 2020. We are looking for volunteers to help out with all aspects of planning, so if you would like to help, please get in touch. Watch for information on our upcoming photography contests and poster design contests to help us promote what should be a very fun week for all Strafford residents. Send us your best photos and artwork that represent our great town!
