Watch John Nolan's Presentation on You Tube.
WOOOF President Nolan will present this musical, interactive, and historically accurate program in two acts.
Act 1 covers the life and times, trials and tribulations, triumphs and failures of Henry Wilson. The chorus numbers "Slavery in New Hampshire" and "The ballad of Henry and Wild Rose O'Neal" are featured in this act.
Act 2 recounts the struggle by WOOOF President Nolan and others to resurrect the name of Farmington's Favorite Son, Henry Wilson, and return it to its proper place of prominence, forthwith! In doing so, he encounters Henry's reincarnation, spoofs NH Public Television, searches for a WOOOF V.P. of national stature, and more. Songs in this half include "The Henry Wilson Blues," "Poem, Poem on the Grange," "The Ghost of Henry Wilson" and the soaring finale, "Henry Wilson Has Two Names."
The meeting will be free to the public, but donations will be requested and accepted at this presentation to support the Historical Society Scholarship Fund. The presentation will be held in the Farmington Woman's Club Room in the upper floor of the Goodwin Library. Refreshments will be served.
Please bring your singing voice and save room for those refreshments.
