Looking to Hamden activities in August: the annual Chambers Hollow Picnic will be Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Chambers Hollow Schoolhouse which is now the residence of Dave Palmer. Alice Blackman attended the school and can tell many stories of those days. All current and former residents and friends are welcome to come, renew acquaintances, and tell stories of things that have happened over the years up the “Hollow.” Alice will have pictures of previous picnics which have been held annually since the 1980s.
