As a resident of Pembroke for 37 years, I am proud to share with others the good news that my town is celebrating its 300th anniversary this year. Like so many towns in the South Shore, Pembroke has grown from a small community to a well-populated and bustling area with much to offer its residents.
The various committees working on the anniversary celebration have planned numerous events that should provide fun for all attendees.
Some of the events planned are as follows:
Pembroke’s largest water balloon fight
Public Safety Night
Treasure Hunt followed by a cook out at the Herring Run
North River Cruise & Trolley Tour
August 10& 12
Pembroke Arts Festival
August 18 & 19
Aviation Week end
Road Race and Parade
October 20 & 21
Civil War Enactment followed by fireworks
Pembroke High School Concert
Please visit Pembroke's website for all up-to-date info. There is a limited edition Pembroke 300th calendar available at the Pembroke Center library and the DPW office.
There are raffle tickets selling for $5 each for the Pembroke 300th Anniversary Quilt which is on display at the Pembroke Center Library.
Suggestions are being requested for items to put in the Pembroke Time Capsule.
I am sure that these events will be well attended by many proud Pembroke residents willing to share stories relating to the rich history of the town.
