2012 Londonderry Old Home Day

The Morrison House Museum is open to the public
every Old Home Day in Londonderry

It was a beautiful day for Londonderry's 113th annual Old Home Day.  The rain held off, and so did the humidity and heat.  An estimated 15,000 people attended the foot race, parade, baby contest, games, contests, concerts and visited the booths on the town common.  I was too busy at the Morrison House Museum to see any of the other events, but I have a few photos of the re-enactors and craftspeople who were stationed there for Old Home Day.  And we had a special visitor when President Obama stopped at Mack's Apples for a bag of apples and to visit with some veterans and kids who had just marched in the parade.  He was on his way to events in Windham and Rochester, but took time out of his busy schedule to see Old Home Day!
