Arcadia Publishing's "Images of America" series has a new addition on Shoreham. The book costs $21.99 and if you buy it from a Shoreham Historical Society member, we will get the profit to put toward our new storage/display barn. Shipping can be done by priority mail for $5.60.
We are also selling t-shirts with the Green Mountain Boys flag on them. Above the flag it says "America's first victory" and below "launched from Shoreham, Vermont." They are available in short sleeve for $15 and long sleeve for $20 in both youth and adult sizes. Profits from the sales of shirts and books will go toward our proposed new display/storage barn.
