The June Varnum members’ meeting will be held on the grounds of the Varnum House Museum on Monday, June 13, 2016. It’s a chance to kick back, enjoy the gardens, and tour the historic 1773 Varnum House. Burgers, hot dogs, BBQ grilled chicken and all the staples of a summer cook-out will be served, plus a choice of beverages. As always, your guests are welcome. The event will go on rain or shine – we’ll have tents.
