OLD LYME — On Thursday, Nov. 17, from 4 to 6 p.m., the Old Lyme Historical Society, Inc., (OLHSI) will be celebrating the release of its new 2023 ‘Then’ & Now’ Old Lyme Community Calendar at a free After Hours Launch Event at the OLHS building at 55 Lyme St. in Old Lyme. All are welcome.
Wine, beer and soft drinks, along with light refreshments, will be offered. A raffle will also be held to benefit the OLHSI.
Calendars will be available for sale at $12 each.
All are welcome to attend.
This is the 11th year that the OLHSI has published this popular calendar, which incorporates a different set of photographs from the organization’s archives juxtaposing the historical images with contemporary ones of the same scene.
The images included in the calendar are a small sampling of the many interesting, archived photographs of Old Lyme establishments, landscapes, and scenes dating back to the beginning of the 20th century.
Each calendar month is sponsored by a different community organization and includes the dates of their events throughout the year. The intent is to highlight and assist in marketing activities occurring in Old Lyme in 2022 as well as remembering the past.
The 2023 ‘Then’ & Now ‘ Old Lyme Community Calendar was designed by James Meehan and edited by Alison Mitchell. Michaelle Pearson served as copy editor.
The mission of the OLHSI is to “collect, preserve, interpret and promote the rich history” of Old Lyme.
