Hampton to host town hall open house Sat.

The community of Hampton will celebrate its town hall and recognize those who contributed to its construction during an Open House this Saturday.

The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, at the town hall on Route 22A.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. and elected officials will give tours of the building and answer any questions people may have. Officials will also unveil the community’s plaque project, which generated more than $5,000, enabling officials to complete landscaping around the building.

The slate plaques were purchased by community members and are engraved in honor or memory of family members, friends and prominent citizens. There is also a larger plaque recognizing the contractors, volunteers and donors who helped make the building a possibility.

Construction of the town hall began last August and was paid for using annual sales tax receipts from the county. A number of local contractors provided favorable bids and local citizens volunteered their labor to keep costs down.

The town hall has been open since November, but interior finish work and things like landscaping have continued to be completed since that time.

 “The town hall project is an example of what a community can accomplish when they pull together and tackle a project of this scope and find creative ways to accomplish this challenge. This was a community project and one all Hampton residents can take pride in. There really is no way we could have accomplished this without everyone’s support,” David O’Brien, town supervisor, wrote in a recent email.

Local elected officials, including Tony Jordan and Dan Stec, and other dignitaries will be present during next Saturday’s event and refreshments will be provided.
