An excerpt from the Barn Dedication Speech by the late
Pegge Howland who served as HHS President in 1994
“Folks, please take a look around you—to your left, and right, and overhead. What you see are the posts and beams of a barn that has stood for over two hundred years in Heath.
Consider that for a moment.
These venerable barn members surrounding us today have withstood eight or nine major wars, a devastating depression, severe forest fires and innumerable onslaughts by the weather. Yet here they stand, straight and tall as the trees they once were, and wearing their new raiment proudly.”
