The Leicester History Gathering

The Leicester History Gathering. All from the community are welcome and encouraged to attend as we try to preserve the history of our community by passing it along to the next generation! This group will meet every third Thursday at 7pm. Each month there will be a short presentation on a subject from the history of Leicester and Sandy Mush followed by a time of fellowship and discussion.
