When 82 year old Wallace Rhodes died last month, he was widely and kindly remembered for generosity to the Belmont community. For some 50 years he served as a volunteer, elected official, and the Town's leading preservation advocate -- notably for the Belmont Mill rehabilitation after a massive 1992 fire, and the 1792 Province Road Meeting House. Old Home Days were a favorite time, and he enjoyed presiding over a collection of vintage photos, carefully curated and researched, and annually displayed at the historic Belmont Public Library. 

At Saturday's Old Home Day (August 12) the Library still hosted Mr, Rhodes, with a tribute featuring his paintings of special Belmont places, past and present, and a book of memories organized by Friends of the Bandstand. Subjects of the paintings include the Mill complex, in the early 1900s with multiple buildings spanning the Tioga River, an early view of the Meeting House with parishioners, carriages and horses and a wintry arrival of a passenger train, to the Town's Village and depot. Art was a new undertaking for Wallace, fostered with introductory lessons at the Belmont senior Center about 10 years ago. The paintings are on loan from cousin Elaine Corriveau and Sherman Gammon, a longtime friend.

Belmont seeks input on town buildings

In July, a Belmont Town Facility Strategy Committee approved by the Board of Selectmen was formed. This Committee will focus on developing information and options for future use of town buildings and how best to meet facility needs for town services and community activities in the future. During Belmont's Old Home Day on Saturday, Aug. 12, there will be an information table for this Town Facility Strategy project. Belmont residents are encouraged to stop by to talk with committee members and offer their ideas and get involved.
