125th Annual Sharon Picnic - August 28, 2016



Monadnock Ledger-Transcript
Monday, August 29, 2016

At its 125th annual Sharon Picnic, residents of the town celebrated its past, discussed its present, and embraced its future.
The now-yearly event at Willard Bass Park goes all the way back to 1890, when a group of Sharon residents gathered in what was then called Hadley’s Grove until it was bought by the town with the help of Samuel Willard Bass. Today, the Bass Park Society still brings the town together every August alongside Route 123.
“If you look at the Sharon history, there’s a lot about this picnic they’ve been having for a long time,” Patrick Galbraith said.
He has lived in Sharon for 10 years and only misses the picnic when he is traveling. His children, 6-year-old Kiran and 5-year-old Sarah, come with him when they can.
Kiran and Sarah have lived in Sharon their whole lives, but that is not that long yet. Carl Newton says he might be the oldest resident born in Sharon, but is not sure. He was part of the first ConVal High School graduating class and serves Sharon as a selectman.

Bruce Matthews, who has lived in Sharon since 1941, says he missed the past two picnics but otherwise has made them all.
“It’s changed a lot since the mid-’40s,” he said. “The town, I think in the past 20 years the number of houses has doubled.”
After the picnic, a crowd gathered for cake and ice cream at the Town Meeting House.
Dedicated in 2007 after first being brought up for a vote in 1801, the Meeting House was funded by a ten-year mortgage.
In a ceremony on Sunday, Newton and Town Moderator Rory Goff “retired” the mortgage, burning a copy at the picnic. “We had to take out a loan and that has been paid off,” Goff, a Sharon resident since 1987, said.
Because Sharon is required to have the picnic every year to retain the property, and because it is a unique chance to bring the whole town – Newton said about 60 people came – together, it will continue into the foreseeable future.
Maybe someday in many years one of the many children seen playing games and eating cake will be talking about how much things have changed.
