Sunapee Discusses “Main Street Talks”

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift, and that is why it is called the present.”

This quote accompanied an email from President Ron Garceau of the Sunapee Historical Society. The historical society is looking to create a present-day gift — a memorable, fun-filled community experience called: “Main Street Talks.”

“You have probably heard about the Cemetery Walks being done by historical societies, where actors assume the persona of a person from the past, and talk to a tour group,” said Garceau

Here in Sunapee, Bev Cutts has suggested, that for a fundraiser, the historical society host a Main Street tour. It would  include “characters from Sunapee’s past who were connected to Main Street by some fashion. Business people, teachers, mill workers, we even had a Governor (Bartlett) on Main Street!”

The historical society is looking for people interested in participating and helping out. “In order to pull this off,” added Garceau, “we will need people to be actors, costumes, research for the scripts, publicity and more.”

A “Main Street Talks” meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 24 at the Sunapee Methodist Church at 7 p.m. All interested are welcome to attend.

“There is a lot of enthusiasm for the idea,” added Garceau, who anticipates few rehearsals, but preparation done on one’s own time. Tentatively, the tour would be held on Saturday, July 31 with a repeat performance on Sunday, August 8 at the historical society’s Annual Meeting held at the museum at Sunapee Harbor.
