Pat Casey, David Childs and Bob Pulford recall their 2010 “New Hartford World Tour,” during which they visited every New Hartford in the United States. David Childs, Chairman of the New Hartford, CT Economic Development Commission, recalls how the connection with the other towns began when he visited New Hartford, IA in 2008 following that town’s being struck by a tornado followed by a flood. Two years later, he and Pat Casey, President of the New Hartford, CT Historical Society and Bob Pulford (an honorary New Hartfordite because he had the airplane). set out on a journey to revisit New Hartford, IA and all the other New Hartfords in the US.
NewHartfordPlus published the daily log of the journey back in 2010. See the NewHartford 2010 Tour tab under our “NHDiary” section.
Following is the presentation by the three travellers on Wednesday, August 1, in the Senior Center at Town Hall in New Hartford, CT. The presentation was sponsored by the New Hartford Historical Society.
