Brighton History Open House was a great success in 2020. Lots of folks came out to talk history and then grabbed a snack at the Heritage Tea. The BDA did a wonderful job of organizing the event and everybody had a good time. Ralph Bangay's sketches were a big hit and many folks sat in the small theatres to see the BDA videos. Many vendors brought interesting items and the buzz in the room all day suggests that visitors and vendors engaged in a lot of discussion, which is the point of the event. Over at the History Guy's space, there was lots of talk re the new book coming in June, and the old books did some business as well. So glad to see folks coming around with questions and encouragement. Thanks so much. This was our eighth Brighton History Open House! Can't wait for number 9!
Note: Brighton History Week events are supported by the Municipality of Brighton.

Ron Waddling always creates a collage and passes it along after the Open House. Thanks Ron!
The History Guy had a great spot just inside the door! The new book cover was an attention grabber.
From 10 am the crowd was steady and engaged. I looked up for a moment and saw it was 2:30 pm! Thanks for coming, folks!
Below is a pic of the board I made up for the Open House summarizing the Every Picture Tells a Story presentation I gave Sunday February 16. If you follow from A through N you can see the pertinent images and read the text on the blown up pages below. Folks entering the Open House saw this board by the door and many spent some time there. Let me know if anyone has any questions.
