For anyone planning to attend the BHS Art Sale on Friday, Sept. 13th, please be aware that due to setup activities for Tavern Day, there will be limited parking available in the Elton Tavern lot. Feel free to park across the street at the Congregational Church, People’s Bank or on Savarese Lane for our event.
At the 8th annual members and volunteers picnic, Ian McCusker possibly our youngest volunteer was recognized for his help with the 2019 2nd grade passbook program, Jim Bernetich was recognized for organizing the boy scouts to help with tavern day and other BHS needs over the past many years. Barbara Flaherty-Carchedi was recognized as the chief BHS docent ensuring that all visitors to the Tavern are met hospitably and provided with the best knowledge of the Elton Tavern and history of Burlington. A thank you to Carl Salsedo and our house band the the Yankee Blue Grass Jammers. Thank you to Nat Walker for making this event happen.
