A diorama of the historic mills will be on display and local author Tom Graham will be on hand to discuss his book Tales from the General Store – The Untold History of Bishop’s Mills. Signed copies will be available.

At 11:00 am, Mayor Peckford will officially unveil a historical plaque commemorating the Village’s early cheesemakers and the three lives lost when an explosion destroyed the cheese factory in 1924. 

Maps for the yard sales will be available at the Community Hall at 8:00 am. The bake sale, silent auction, displays, etc. start at 9 am.
