On Monday, June 13, we had our annual Varnum Continentals Community Barbecue at the Varnum House Museum. What a great time! We had about 100 guests on the grounds for the celebration and taking tours of the newly-refreshed 1773 house museum (originally built by General James Mitchell Varnum).
New Varnum House Docent Program Launched
It was also a great night to launch our new docent program at the Varnum House Museum. Under the leadership of Varnum Continentals VP Barbara Weaver, the new docents have already done tours for local elementary school students and will be available to give tours on weekends this summer (see museum tour hours below).
COL Martin Denny-Brown Retires
Varnum’s Regiment, RIM, also recognized the retirement of one of our Past Commanders, COL Martin Denny-Brown. Martin served in the US Army; he enlisted in Varnum’s Regiment in 1985 and has been an active member and leader of the militia and Varnum organization since Day 1. Martin served on the Executive Committee, was a Varnum trustee, and headed the Property Committee.
We’d like to thank everyone who came out that night, including guests and neighbors, for a great time. We look forward to seeing you this summer. To arrange a tour at the Varnum House Museum, please call 401-884-1776 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
