President’s Message

Plans are underway for the 250 year celebration of the Charter for Wallingford.  We have had one meeting so far.  The various community groups sent representatives with suggestions as to how they could contribute to the cause.  I believe we will try and meet briefly each month, the third Tuesday evening at 6:30 in the Town Hall.  If you would like to be a part of this effort and don’t belong to a specific community group fear not!  All help is welcome and we have several areas that are in need of extra hands.  Contact Joyce Barbieri at the Town Hall or any person you know who belongs to one of the Town groups, churches, library or business.   This celebration will be a two day affair.  On Saturday August 27th, we will do our annual town wide garage sale with a few added attractions.  On Sunday August 28th at 2:00 PM, people will gather at Elfin Lake’s Boys Camp area for food, games, music, exhibits, and a ceremony that will celebrate us as the town of Wallingford.  We hope to see as many folks there as possible.  . Good news for the Historical Society, we have a new treasurer.  Her name is Arlene Sntor.  She is a welcome addition to our group.  We thank Sandy Tyminski for all she has done over the past years and for sticking with us till we could find a replacement.  We still are in need of more board members and will be seeking new officers in the fall.  If you have an interest in your town’s history, some time to spare and enjoy working with others we can use you.  Contact me or any other board member if this sounds like something you could be a part of.   Enjoy the weather, Christine Bannerman, President WHS

    I am the great great granddaughter of Merrett Ives who resided in Wallingford in 1850. He had a brother (Abraham) and a sister (Esther). His death certificate reveals that he was born in Vermont but I cannot find any evidence of his parents. Would you have any information in my quest. Thank you for considering my request. BTW, I visited your town several years ago and found it to be a quaint, beautiful town – a wonderful place to raise a family. Lynn Hammond in Cleveland, Ohio.
