Reading 375 News

365 days to 375 years!

Planning for the town’s upcoming 375th anniversary celebration is moving into high gear. After months of soliciting ideas, the celebration steering committee has planned for a schedule of events which will begin May 31, 2019, and concludes nine days later.

With exactly one year to go, an open meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 31 of this year. The purpose is to make the plans public and to invite townspeople to get involved with specific aspects. At the meeting, we will ask the public to sign up for those events that may be of particular interest.

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 31st, at 7 pm at RCTV Studios, 557 Main St. If you are unable to attend, but would like to participate, please email us at We look forward to seeing you there!

It’s Time to Celebrate Again


In 2019, the town of Reading marks its 375th anniversary. To plan a suitable observance of the event a brainstorming meeting is planned for this Thursday, June 22 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The meeting, to be held at RCTV Studios, 557 Main St., is open to the public.

The agenda is simple. We’ll begin with a brief review of the past celebrations – most notably the 350th held in 1994 – followed by a description of some potential concepts.

All are welcome to attend. This is your celebration. Be sure to bring your ideas, and we’ll discuss them all. For more information visit us on Facebook or email
