Greenland’s Tricentennial in 2021

Detail of Dean Katiniotis’s Design

Jim Rolston, Town Selectman & longtime GHS member, chairs the Tricentennial Committee. Dean Katiniotis’s design is seen on the Town banners and T-shirts.

In 2021 GHS members and friends will provide support and leadership for the planned activities to celebrate Greenland’s 300 years as an independent, incorporated town in the Seacoast.

Hughes Family Collection

Bluebird Storage in Greenland provides a storage unit for The Hughes Papers. It has been a temporary work site for Mark Willis, historian, and Karen Mason to sort papers and memorabilia. Next phase: file merging. Last January Karen Hayden spent hours helping to sort and identify contents of the 54 boxes.

Paul Simon

“A Little Neglect May Breed Great Mischief”

For want of a nail, the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe, the horse was lost. For want of a horse, the rider was lost. For want of a rider, the battle was lost. For want of a battle, the kingdom was lost, And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

Benjamin Franklin included a version of this proverb in Poor Richard’s Almanack in 1758.

We at the GHS are mindful of the importance of seemingly trivial things in the grand scheme of things and strive to do our best.
