Thanks very much, Kearsarge Magazine, for the focus on Andover in your Spring 2020 issue! 

For our readers who haven’t seen a copy, it contains:

“Here Comes the Sun,” a five-page article explaining the benefits of renewable solar energy and featuring six color photographs of solar installations, five of them taken in Andover.

“More than a Building,” about the Andover Community Hub, which “will provide meeting and program space for people of all ages to gather for generations.”  The article is accompanied by five color photographs of the building’s exterior, interior, and activities. 

“Meet Your Local Historical Society,” a seven-page article containing brief descriptions of the eight history-oriented organizations in the magazine’s coverage area.  The page describing the Andover Historical Society contains observations by curator Luan Clark and president Gail Richards, along with color photos of the Potter Place railroad station and the post office in the Emons Store.

Kearsarge Magazine editor Laura Jean Whitcomb kindly provided several copies of the issue to be made available for viewing in Andover’s libraries, schools, and other facilities. But with those facilities now closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, you can wait until they re-open or you can purchase a copy in New London at Colonial Pharmacy, Hannaford, Jake’s Market and Deli, or Roberts Scarlett Pharmacy, while supplies last.
