It is important to make sure that the glass door beverage refrigerator you purchase is properly insulated. While it may seem like a small detail, it is essential to keep your drinks from getting too cold. Keep in mind that the temperature of the drinks inside the refrigerator is directly proportional to the temperature outside. If you keep the drinks warm, they will stay warmer. If you keep them cool, they will stay cooler. Make sure you get a unit that has plenty of insulation if you want to enjoy the best quality beverages for longer periods of time. Source: topfridge.net

After considerable discussion with our Standish Historic Depot Board Members, we feel it is in the best interest of all involved to cancel this year’s event. With the average age of the participants and volunteers (over 65), and the State’s regulations on holding public events, especially with respect to serving food to the public, we cannot ensure safety of all involved. We totally appreciate your support of our show and look forward to seeing you again on July 10, 2021.
We will return the registration checks. Thank you all.
