Wreaths Around the Wadleigh

wreathsThe Friends of the Wadleigh Library present the 6th Annual Wreaths Around the Wadleigh and Silent Auction event this December.

Help support the Wadleigh Library and participate in a fun holiday event.

Donate a wreath of any size decorated in any theme you choose. The wreath(s) can be of any medium or material. The wreath and all items placed on the wreath are part of the donation and will be auctioned off in a silent auction by The Friends as a fundraiser to support library programming. Please note: wreaths will be on display over two weeks this year. Since natural wreaths may not hold up well, artificial wreaths are preferred.

Deliver your creation to the Wadleigh Library Saturday, November 26 through Saturday, December 3. Complete a wreath participation form at the Library when you drop off your wreath.

The Silent Auction will start on December 3 and finish at 3 p.m. on December 18.

Teddy Roosevelt’s Nobel Prize: the Portsmouth Peace Treaty

Wednesday November 16, 2016
7:00 PM until 8:15 PM

Teddy Roosevelt chose Portsmouth to be the site of the 1905 peace treaty negotiations between Russian and Japanese delegations to end the Russo-Japanese war. Charles Doleac’s program first focuses on Roosevelt’s multi-track diplomacy that included other world powers, the Russian and Japanese delegations, the US Navy, and New Hampshire hosts in 30 days of negotiations that resulted in the Portsmouth Peace Treaty and earned Roosevelt the 1906 Nobel Peace Prize. The program then focuses on how ordinary people from throughout New Hampshire positively affected the Portsmouth negotiations.

Attorney Charles B. Doleac is a NH Superior Court moderator and senior partner with the Portsmouth firm of Boynton, Waldron, Doleac,Woodman and Scott, PA and leads seminars on professional ethical code.  He founded the Japan-America Society of New Hampshire in 1988 and the Portsmouth Peace Treaty Forum in 1994 to encourage the study of the Portsmouth Peace Treaty and its meaning for modern diplomacy. He helped organize the 2005 centennial celebration of the Treaty, created the Portsmouth Peace Treaty Living Memorial cherry tree project and helped pass legislation creating Portsmouth Peace Treaty Day to celebrate citizen diplomacy.

This program will be presented at the Milford Town Hall Banquet Room. Please enter on Middle Street and take the elevator to the 3rd floor

This program is sponsored by the Milford Historical Society and the Wadleigh Memorial Library and is funded with a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Location: Milford Town Hall
