SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Mel Martin will host an open house focused on Ira Marshall Saturday, Nov. 9, from 1-4 p.m. at the Springfield Art and Historical Society, 65 Route 106 in North Springfield. Martin has provided SAHS with a display about Ira Marshall (1910-1985). Everyone in town knew Ira; some might call him a “character.” Martin photographed Ira while panning for gold with him and found him to be a very interesting person. Martin invites everyone to come and see the display and share their stories about Ira. This program is free and open to all. For more information, call 802-886-7935 or email email@example.com.
