Sunday Series: "Kent Back Then"
The award-winning curator of the Kent Historical Society (as well as the Sharon Historical Society), Marge Smith will take a nostalgic look at Kent life in the mid-20th century, including farming, the village, moving to Kent, and the role that three private schools have played in the town's life. The depth and breadth of Ms. Smith's knowledge of Kent is the backbone of the Kent Historical Society, and in this interactive discussion with the audience, she will link the past with today using a series of images and old advertisements from Kent's iconic local newspaper - The Kent Good Times Dispatch, known fondly as the GTD. In its heyday, the GTD had its finger firmly on the pulse of the town, with reporters submitting stories from every corner of town. So, search your memory banks and plan to join us for a fun afternoon.
Kent Back Then will be presented by the Kent Historical Society as part of its Sunday Series lectures in the Kent Town Hall Sunday, January 21, at 2 p.m.
