The first of Ledyard’s “Know Your Town” series was held on Thursday, September 20th at the Nathan Lester House. Ledyard Mayor John Rodolico lead off the presentation with an overview of the rules and responsibilities of the mayor. I followed as Town Council Chairman. The real highlight of the evening was Town Historian Kit Foster who gave a fascinating account of the early history of Ledyard. If you are interested in reading about the history of Ledyard, there is a wonderful series of books produced by the Ledyard Historical Society. In addition, Kit Foster is the author of the Ledyard and Gales Ferry edition of the Images of America series. These books can be purchased at the Ledyard and Gales Ferry Libraries and on the Ledyard Historical Society website.
