Landgrove Meeting House
The Landgrove Meeting House welcomes back respected educator Michael J. Kennedy, on Sunday, July 14, at 9:30 am., to address ‘Community Virtues.’ It’s sure to be a thoughtful and provocative message for our times. Kennedy’s lifetime commitment to education and teaching adolescents includes seven years at Chestnut Hill Academy in Pennsylvania where he taught English and was department chair. He spent the next nine years at Pomfret School in Connecticut as chair of the English Department, and later assistant headmaster and dean of faculty. He retired in 2008 from Valley School in Ligonier, Penn., after 20 years as head of school. While he and his wife, Robin, now live in New London, N.H., they owned a home in Landgrove for 15 years, and know and love the area deeply. The beautifully simple and richly acoustic space of the 161-year-old Landgrove Meeting House will also resonate with music, as it does each week throughout the summer when accomplished musicians provide music for the weekly services.
