High temperatures did not stop Millbrook residents from turning out for Community Day, a yearly celebration set up by the Millbrook Business Association. The farmer’s market was moved to Church Street.
Franklin Avenue was lined with tables, promoting businesses or fund raising through food sales. There was an oatmeal-raisin cookie-baking contest, sangria tasting, and BBQ chicken at the firehouse.
At midday a parade, comprised of young soccer camp kids, dogs in costume, a well behaved goat, and the Millbrook Hounds, strolled through the village.
Outside the library there were practical demonstrations to interest people of all ages: from fly casting lessons by Timothy Bontecou and music lessons by Eric Rosi-Marshall, who showed people how to play three chords and participate in a jam session. Perhaps the greatest hit of all were the free books given out to children.
