Saturday in District 3

We redistricted this year, and there were some changes. My new district is comprised of Charlestown, Newport, and Unity. I spent some time in all three today. Charlestown had it’s yard sale extravaganza today. Then, I went and met some people at the Unity Transfer Station.

After that, it was off to Newport for a few stops and of course, a Coronis Market grinder.

I hit Beaver Pond Farm on the way back

… and finally Charlestown House of Pizza for dinner

Main Street, Charlestown History

It is really interesting to walk Main St and read the historic markers. Some of the markers are old enough to be historical in themselves, like this 118 year old marker.
