Sutton Historical Society to conduct returnable bottle and

SUTTON — Sutton Historical Society Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, will host a returnable bottle and can drive during the week of July 9-July 17. 

Swing by the M. M. Sherman Blacksmith Shop, 6 Singletary Ave., and drop your items in the trailer which will be parked alongside the building. Tell your family, friends and neighbors. 

Being a small organization dedicated to preserving the history of Sutton, the funds from this drive help us keep our programs going and our buildings operating. So don’t toss out those returnables from your 4th of July events, give them to us!

On June 18, the Sutton Historical Society sponsored its Townwide Yard Sale at the blacksmith shop and other sites in town.
