Silhouette Artist Fundraiser...
This is an old event, from 2012
Experience the timeless artistry of nationally renowned silhouette artist Deborah O'Connor at the New Milford Historical Society. The unique charm of a profile bust of your child, infant, pet or yourself can be enjoyed forever when captured in a silhouette portrait. Using scissors and paper as the only tools, O'Connor creates a cut silhouette in exacting detail and remarkable likeness in as little as five minutes. Silhouettes can be made from live subjects or photographs providing the subject is turned to the right. The cost is $30.00 for an original silhouette, $15.00 for a copy with 8" x 10" mattes available for $10.00 and 11" x 14" mattes for $15.00. Your silhouette will come mounted on your choice of white or ivory cardstock. They make wonderful Mother's Day, Father's Day, Anniversary or Birthday gifts and will become treasured family heirlooms.

New Milford Historical Society's Board of Trustee and native New Milfordite, Ted Hine, will be reading selected entries from diaries from the late 1890s on Sunday, March 9th at 2 PM at the Society's museum on Aspetuck Ave. If you missed hearing about it in the late 1890s, now is the time to get caught up on it. You will be pleasantly surprised of all the mystery, war, and day to day living in New Milford at that time. Diaries and photos are a collaborative effort from the society’s archives and Mr. Hine's private collection. This will be a multi-media presentation with a short question and answer session at the end. Light refreshments will be served afterwards.
