EPSOM OLD HOME DAY WEEKEND 2022
STEP BY STEP BOOTH
Come Visit us!
"Please Come see us on Saturday"
"Old Home Days" or "Week", is a New Hampshire original, going all the way back to 1897. Frank Rollins, the Governor of New Hampshire from 1899-1901, was the person who began the annual celebrations. In 1899, 44 New Hampshire towns held "Old Home Weeks" during the last week of August.
Step By Step Worldwide Ministries will be participating in the Epsom Old Home Day on Saturday this year. Focusing primarily in the Merrimack Valley, we hope to have booths at a number of historic "Old Home Week" celebrations. Please look for us on Saturday, August 13th at, ["Webster Park" on Webster Park Road and Suncook Valley Highway/Route 28 South in Epsom] and learn more about our 'Step By Step Kids" and how you can help.
We will have brochures and information about our ministry of rescuing abandoned children with Special Needs. We hope you can come see us.
Watch for updates. You can also reach out to us on "Our Contact" page.
