Current Events

The source of power and the delivery process are two different things, as is explained in this preview of what a Community Power program could mean for Nelson residents.

Meet the Committee and see what they’re up to so far in the early stages of this project .  .  . 

Wattle We Do Now?

Val Van Meier writes about the upcoming project of making a new wattle fence for the Colonial Garden (behind the Library). But there’s a side story involving rabbits, who are also coming to enjoy life in the Village. In fact, if this problem continues, we might need to change the name of our town to Haresville!

See what’s at stake .  .  .  

Easter Egg Hunt

Could this have anything to do with the aforementioned rabbit problem? We’ll leave that for you to ponder, but kids will be delighted to know that there will be an Easter Egg hunt sponsored by the Nelson Congregational Church, on the Church lawn starting at 10:45 on Easter Sunday. All kids are welcome! Please bring your own basket or bag to collect your eggs.

Old Home Day Update

Things are shaping up for Old Home Day, making a revitalized comeback after a two-year hiatus. More updates will be provided as we move closer to the event, but so far, folks can look forward to an amazing double-billed concert in the Town Hall on Friday night (Aug. 19), featuring Monadnock Music director Raphael Popper-Keizer on cello, followed by Paul Klemperer on saxophone. Both musicians have strong ties to Nelson, and the music promises to be innovative and entertaining. Read more about each of them. Read more about these musicians and the concert .  .  .  

ALERT – After this article was originally published we discovered a conflict that requires us to move the date of Old Home day to Saturday, August 6th. The concert on August 19 remains unchanged. More details in the next update. 

For Old Home Day: We’ll be seeing a lot of the usual activities, but some new ingredients as well, including music behind the Library / Town Hall in the proximity of the picnic tables, and, after the chicken barbecue and Nelson Town Band Concert, a sheep dog demonstration from Dave Kennard of  Wellscroft Farm.  More details about Old Home Day here . . .
