Letter from Uncle Josh

Well, once again old man winter has been mighty tough up here at "The Old Homestead". Why we had so much snow 'round here that you had to be longer than a shootin' match to get over the snow banks! It has been one of them good ole New England winters for sure.

Well Tildy and I were thinking that we would change things up a bit this year. Ya know we ain't gitting any younger. So we decided to welcome you all to the Potash Bowl for two performances this year. Friday and Saturday, July 17th and 18th, will be the nights of the performance. And if we git any of that pesky wet weather we will have Sunday, July 19th to make it up. Along with that we are doin' away with the admission price and instead we will be just passin' the hat, so to speak, during the performance. This year is the 74th revival of the play right here in Swanzey and we are thinking that next year, the 2016 season, will be our last so don't be shy, stop in and say hello.

Your President and Uncle Josh,

Lee Dunham
