Help Andover Be America’s Favorite Farmers Market!

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

It’s summertime and that means two things: 1) There are loads of delicious farm fresh produce available at Andover Farmers’ Market every week; and 2) American Farmland Trust’s America’s Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest has kicked into gear and we need your votes to win!

The process is simple. To vote for our market, all you have to do is:

1.) Go to www.farmland.org/vote

2.) Type in Andover ; and,

3.) Click “Vote”

That’s it. That’s all it takes to bring ANDOVER one step closer to being America’s favorite farmers market!

Now American Farmland Trust has introduced leader boards where you can keep track of the Top 5 markets receiving votes in Massachusetts.

Want to support multiple markets in Mass? Search by state and you can vote for more of your favorites – just remember, you only have one vote to cast per market!

According to American Farmland Trust (AFT), the purpose of this contest is to re-connect local consumers to local farms, with the ultimate goal of keeping our nation’s farm and ranch land productive and healthy! Buying at the farmers market keeps money in the local community and helps farms and ranches remain economically viable. By voting, you’re helping support farms and communities across the nation. As American Farmland Trust says, “No Farms No Food™!”

So don’t forget to vote for Andover Farmers’ Market at www.farmland.org/vote and spread the word! Big thanks to everyone who has already voted!

.

Mark your calendar for the Historical Society’s biannual Gates and Gables House Tour, Saturday, September 26th, 10:00 am to 4:00 p.m. Gates and Gables will treat visitors to an inside look at private Andover homes displaying an intriguing diversity of architectural, collecting, and decorating styles. The exciting range of architectural styles and periods add to the charm of this year’s tour.

One of the premier houses on the tour is celebrating its 250th birthday this year. Built in 1759 as a small two-room starter home, the property now includes a two-story house with two period-style additions, barns, outbuildings. The original two rooms are today used as a sitting room and dining room. The original blacksmith shop, described as early as 1808, is incorporated into the house as a family room.

Please join us for this fun-filled event. All proceeds raised through Gates & Gables support the Historical Society mission to share Andover’s unique stories. Stay tuned for further details!

Want to volunteer at the event? Contact us at 978.475.2236 or info@andoverhistorical.org for more information.

Got (too many) Books?

Monday, April 13th, 2009

index_05Last fall, the Andover Historical Society launched a new partnership with used book dealer Got Books. In addition to its other business ventures, Got Books serves the local community by helping nonprofit groups, like the Andover Historical Society, raise money through donations and sales of used books.

.

The Society continues to accept donations of used books. A Got Books donation box has been placed in the Historical Society parking area off the alley between the Society and Olde Andover Village/Dunkin Donuts. For every pound of books donated Got Books will make a financial contribution to the Historical Society. Book donations can be made year round and the donation box has recently been emptied, so if you’re doing spring cleaning and find books that need a new home… our box is just the place!

.

In addition to the donation box, the Society has partnered with Got Books on two months of book sales at their Lawrence warehouse each year. Got Books warehouse is located at 104 Glenn Street Street, just off River Road in Andover. The Society will earn a percentage of all sales during the two partnership months. The Society’s first partnership book sale will take place next month, May 2009.

.

For further information about the Society’s partnership with Got Books, please call 978-475-2236.
