The Aspinock Historical Society is enjoying their membership with the Putnam Business Association and participating in the theme-based First Fridays events each month. June’s celebration focuses on music, which strikes a harmonious chord in all of us.
In addition to AHS’s First Fridays booth set up on the Congregational Church lawn on June 7th, showing off all sorts of great Putnam musicians, bands and choirs, AHS welcomes you to attend their upcoming event “Putnam's Music History through the Ages.”
“Putnam's Music History through the Ages” will be in fine tune on Thursday, June 13, 2019, starting at 6:30 pm - sharp.
Al Smat, a local musician who knew and worked with many musicians in our area will strike up the memories, then AHS’s Fabiola M Cutler has a power point presentation from an historical perspective that will play after Al's presentation.
Remember the Coachmen? Or were you a member of the St. Mary's Band? Maybe a church choir or school band… Do you perform now?
Come and enjoy the photos and memories, and please bring yours. Together new memories will be made and become history.
“Putnam's Music History through the Ages” will be playing in the Joseph Pempek Conference Room at the Superintendent’s office in Putnam High School, 152 Woodstock Avenue, Putnam. HINT: You can access the Board of Education area of the High School and the Conference Center from MIlton Street for the easiest access.
