THE GAWLER FAMILY BAND:
A TRIBUTE TO HOLMAN DAY
THURSDAY, JULY 16, 2015 ~ 7 p.m.
AT THE SCHOOLHOUSE MUSEUM (Route 32)
One of Vassalboro’s most famous sons, HOLMAN DAY (1865-1935) was a novelist, poet, filmmaker, and newspaper correspondent during his long and prolific career. Born in Vassalboro, Day attended Oak Grove Seminary and Colby College. Most of his 25+ novels told humorous stories of good Maine folk, living in interesting and challenging times.
For a number of years John Gawler of Belgrade, with his family, has presented musical programs
that included brief tributes to Holman Day.
On July 16, they will share an evening to honor Day’s work and character—
a premier performance, right here in Day’s hometown! You’ll love the music, the humor, and the insight.
