Fair Haven Retrospective– 6/30 – 7/8 The goal of this event is to capture the image of what Fair Haven was like in yesteryear. There were many good and also difficult aspects of life back then -- the architecture of the buildings, the characters that lived here, the simplicity of life before cell phones and autos (and yes, no indoor plumbing or refrigeration), the hardiness of the people who were able to thrive in difficult times, the resourcefulness of children who created their own games outside rather than sitting at the computer.. In today's complex world we may do well to remember the simple things that can make life meaningful and bring people together. And so, while we still have people in our midst that remember the stories and have access to photographs of the past we would like to pull them together into an artist's rendition of "Fair Haven Retrospective". We would like to make this an annual event, starting out this year with limited material and building on it each year. We would like younger people to be involved - perhaps interviewing some of the older generation and drawing or writing down their stories or even filming them. So, if you're interested in participating in this event please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
