Guest Speaker Series- Simon R. LaPlace “Who Do You Think You Are?”

September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Simon LaPlace

LaPlace Store 1905Join us on September 23rd for our first speaker in our DRHS Guest Speaker Series.

Simon R. LaPlace, life long resident of Deep River and a Mayflower descendant has prepared a talk about the evolution of Deep River’s Main Stree, from C.D Smith’s Undertaking business to LaPlace’s Furniture Store and beyond. He will begin with a brief look into his family tree with the questions, “Who do you think you are?” Where we come from and how we interact together as a community has shaped Deep River’s Main Street over generations. This village began as a farming community, but they needed services, undertakers, and cabinet makers. Simon weaves a fascinating story of people and business that brings us to the Deep River we know today.
