The Hale Street Gang exhibit will arrive in Fairfield early June. This exhibit features work and portraits of twelve senior citizens who gather once a week to read aloud from their memoirs-in-progress. Their clubhouse is the Greater Randolph Senior Center, an elderly mansion in a neighborhood south of the railroad tracks. Together they weave a “collective memoir” of life in twentieth-century America, with the village of Randolph, Vermont as its nexus.
The Library, Fairfield Center School and the Community Center in East Fairfield aim to bring a Fairfield component to this exhibit. Our hope is that the seniors, seventh graders, and community members will respond to a variety of prompts on Front Porch Forum. Community members are encouraged to respond to a weekly prompt – there are only three, so pay close attention! Your response can be short and sweet or long and thought provoking! There is not right or wrong answer – we just want you to reflect on living in Fairfield. Watch for next week’s first prompt and respond to the forum as a whole or to the library as an individual! Let’s work on creating a “collective memoir” of life in Fairfield!
