DUMMERSTON -- The Dummerston Historical Society’s annual membership meeting and program is Thursday, Jan. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Dummerston Center Schoolhouse. There will be a short business meeting with election of officers, budget adoption and review of past year’s activities followed by a program on "Old Time Sayings" a.k.a. colloquialisms.

Jog your memories to recall any of those odd or old-fashioned phrases you used to hear from generations ahead of you when you were a child, such as gulley-washer, pop, raining cats and dogs, etc. How did they sound and what did they mean? Come share them with others on Jan. 17.

Free, handicapped accessible, refreshments. All are welcome. Information: Gail at 802-254-9311.
