They will be “Rockin’ ‘n’ Rollin’ in Guilford” this weekend, as the annual Community Fun Fest kicks off Saturday morning.
The family-friendly event, which will run from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, will recall not only the music of the 1950s and ‘60s, but the people, businesses and organizations of the Guilford past. Also taken into account will be each of the churches, and the fire department. The Historical Society, The Klee House and J’s Quickway are participating as well.
Most events will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Included in that time frame, crafters and vendors will line Main Street and set up in the Methodist Church. There will also be a quilt show there including a raffle. Participants may bring hand-crafted or antique quilt and description and/or history thereof and be eligible for a prize for the most favorite quilt.
Lawn sales will also be held throughout the village. Anyone who wants to have a sale and needs a table may call Elaine Pikul at 895-6325. The Oxford Village Band will play in the Village Park from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A cancellation stamp has been designed for the day, and will be available at the post office window between 8 a.m. and noon. The Guilford Carry-On 4-H Club will be selling popcorn and snow cones at the post office. School supply donations will be accepted at a school bus for the “Stuff a Bus.” These supplies will be donated to area schools.
The Guilford Historical Society tent will have a display of “Rocks and Rolling Hills of Guilford,” featuring Guilford homes, businesses and farming. The GHS is in the process of collecting farming and house photos. Those who have old and/or new photos can bring them to the tent for scanning.
