Details will be available on our website, www.portsmouthri375.com shortly. Please help get this information out by sharing this post with your family and friends.

Will there be any events that don't fit into the Sea Meadow and Anthony House market? What I mean is something for the people that are less than age 70?

Here is my idea - have a dessert part and serve the 375 Custom House coffee. Then take some donations. This blends (no pun intended for our coffee friends) all of the great combinations to bring in money and get the town together. Who doesn't like dessert (there is always room for JELLO) and coffee?
