A Boyhood in Simsbury #1

Volume 22 Issue 4 Winter 2016-2017

Memoirs of Joseph Toy Curtiss, Part II

In 1970, Simsbury observed its three-hundredth birthday with a series of parades, plays, speeches and concerts. The schools held special assemblies commemorating the past and men sprouted long whiskers as they competed in a beard-growing contest. It was a town-wide affair spanning many months, and it seemed nearly everyone had a role to play.
