July 4 celebration and bell ringing

While not specifically something regarding the Wallingford Fireworks Fund itself or the Independence Day Fireworks display I did want to publicize this additional 4th of July event that is taking place in town.

The Wallingford Historical Society will celebrate July 4 at the Samuel Parsons house, 180 South Main St. At 1:30 p.m.

Guests will gather around the bells to hear the Governor’s Proclamation being read, talk about what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and sing the Star Spangled Banner.

At 2 p.m. the Old Town Hall bell and 3 other school bells will be rung. Guests may bring a picnic lunch and chairs any time after 12 p.m. and gather in the backyard.

Contact Ray Chappell at (203) 265-0313 for information.
