Signs to mark Londonderry’s Birthday & Gateway’s

The community is invited to a birthday party for the Town of Londonderry.

On June 21, 1722, England’s King George granted a charter to Nutfield Township, and it became Londonderry, New Hampshire. This coming June 21, a Saturday at 10 AM, we will be commemorating our town’s 286th birthday with the unveiling of the first of 5 Welcome To Londonderry signs to be placed at the major gateways into town.

This project—over 2 years in the making—was run by the Londonderry Solid Waste Advisory Committee, but it succeeded with the help of people from all over town, and without burdening taxpayers. The 5 rustic signs will display a 3-dimensional picture of apples, the image residents most identify with their town.

Londonderry, in the hearts of many people who live here, is a very special place. This will be a permanent and very public way to express the pride we have in our community and its history. It will also be an opportunity to recognize the sponsors of the signs, the local companies that have volunteered to landscape and maintain each sign location, and the many others who contributed to the design, siting, bid preparation, fundraising and project planning that brought the original idea to fruition.

The celebration will be held near the Welcome Sign being sited on the western end of route 102, on the lawn at the eastern edge of the Londonderry Flea Market. Guests will be able to use the parking lot at that location. In the event of rain, activities will shift to Town Hall.
