Upcoming Historical Society Programs and Events

Monthly programs are free and open to the public.  

The Festival of Trees is not being presented this year.  Here's why:

September  1, 2016

Thank you to everyone in Marlborough and beyond who supported the Festival of Trees. Your participation--as volunteers, attendees, exhibitors, singers, Santas, sponsors, crafters, gingerbread house bakers, tree decorators and more--were the reason we created the Festival and put it on every year.  

This year our board made the difficult decision to not put on the Festival, and we likely won't put on the Festival for the foreseeable future.  While there were always great volunteers for the Festival, we've been losing members of our board who are no longer able to actively participate, and those board members are the ones who, under the leadership of Bob Kane and Janet Licht, were critical to producing the Festival.

We will miss the Festival, but we hope you'll consider supporting and being a part of the next generation of Marlborough Historical Society board members.  If this is of interest, please see one of us at an upcoming monthly program.

On behalf of all of us on the board, thank you for your continuing support.

- Janet Licht, President, The Marlborough Historical Society
