Residents filled the Meetinghouse in Jaffrey Center on Friday for what has become a town tradition: A reading of the Declaration of Independence. For the past 14 years, dozens of residents have lined up to read a line from the historic document, followed by a round of “Yankee Doodle Dandy” as sung by everyone in attendance. Following the reading, an ice cream social was held in the horse sheds behind the Meeting House, despite the rainy weather.
