On Thursday, June 28, the Round Pond Schoolhouse Association will host its first Old-Fashioned Beano Night of the season at the historic Washington Schoolhouse in Round Pond.
Beano is like bingo but with a New England twist. Soft drinks, snacks, and fresh popcorn will be available for purchase. Master Beano caller George Sawyer, of New Harbor, will be calling out the numbers from 7-8:30 p.m. at the schoolhouse. Cards are still only two for $1. Prizes will be awarded Yankee Swap style.
Starting July 11, the museum on the second floor of the schoolhouse will be open every Wednesday from 2-4 p.m. One will be transported back to the 19th century as one enters a lovingly restored classroom where generations of students studied and learned.
The Round Pond Schoolhouse Association will also be hosting Travel Tuesday presentations throughout the summer. Several openings are still available for community members who would like to share their far-flung adventures.
Contact Jenny Cleaves at 529-5796 for more information.
