The Dublin Historical Society will offer a potluck supper, Friday, April 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Dublin Community Church Hall, 1125 Main St.

All are welcome to bring dishes to share: appetizers, salads, casseroles, other main dishes and desserts. Tea and coffee will be provided. Supper begins at 5 p.m. The program begins at 6 p.m., with historian Steve Taylor speaking on “Poor Houses and Town Farms: The Hard Row for Paupers,” examining how paupers were treated in these facilities and how reformers eventually succeeded in closing them down.

Taylor is a farmer, newspaperman and longtime public official. He has studied, written and spoken for many years about New Hampshire's rural culture and the state's agricultural history. He served 25 years as the state's commissioner of agriculture, and was the founding executive director of the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
