The Dublin Gas Engine Meet on Cricket Hill Farm is Dublin’s longest lasting tradition after Town Meeting, and this year’s event, the 48th, was no exception. Read all about it in the October issue. Townspeople ready their children for Halloween events, and a ceramic workshop will be held at the library as a fundraiser.

The Advocate welcomes a new staffer, and help is wanted at the transfer station. It’s time again for the Monadnock Art Open Studio Art Tour, the 24th, and there will be a Blessing of the Animals in the new Garden Sanctuary out in back of the church, woodland creatures included. Among many other activities, Dublin Consolidated School invites all to its the Annual Harvest Supper, and there’s a homecoming at DCA. Yankee has released The 2020 Old Farmer’s Almanac, and the Schoolhouse Museum is open for Columbus Day weekend. Black Fly Story Hour is back, and there’s a walk to raise awareness for substance abuse recovery. There’s another walk to show support for immigrants, and hunting season is under way. Odds Bodkin comes to town, there’s a photography exhibit in the next town south, and a talk about outdoor play for children. It’s Fire Safety month, and the hawkwatch is in full swing.
