Dads and BarbecuesJune 15th, 2012 by Chris Henry
Father’s Day and barbecues are a tried and true tradition.
Around Manchester, it’s not steak and brats on the menu, but
salmon. The town’s annual
salmon bake, now in its 44th year and run by Friends of the
Manchester Library, is steeped in tradition. From what I hear, it’s
like a class reunion for old-time Manchester residents. Funds
raised benefit the library.
When: 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday
Where: Manchester Library
Cost: $14 for adults, $10 for children 6-11 years and $5 for children under 6.

be enticing dads to its 10 a.m. service with drinks, snacks and a
free barbecue after the service.
