Plans are being made to celebrate the Town of Lyme Bicentennial Celebration. This is a celebration of us and for us.
Interested residents, organization representatives, fire department members and Town and Village Board members have met twice and will meet again on February 1st , 6:30 pm at the Lyme town office to continue making plans. All are welcome. We need your ideas and help.
We will be contacting local organizations and businesses to see if they would be willing to help us put on a good time for our town residents and help us celebrate 200 years of the Town of Lyme.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the celebration process. Presently, the tentative plans call for new events to be held during the Chamber of Commerce Community Days on July 27, 28 and 29, 2018. In addition, to the annual events put on by the Chamber of Commerce and the Chaumont Volunteer Fire Department, a parade, carnival, concert and other new events are being planned.
Organizations, churches, school classes and businesses are urged to volunteer their time, skills and manpower to operate simple, easy-to-play games (ex. Ring toss, dunking booth, sack races, etc.) to go along with the carnival which has mechanical rides, bouncy houses and other fun options. There is an opportunity for a group to sell concessions at the carnival and those groups that operate the games may see a profit as well.
