Celebrating 125 Years
On August 14, 1897 The Lakeville Journal printed its first issue.

countryside community. The Lakeville Journal Foundation invites you to celebrate a monumental anniversary for this nonprofit publication.
Join us this summer for 125, our month-long anniversary series of festivities
— including our sensational first ticketed gala — that honor our history,
our dedicated coverage of the area, and most of all, celebrate you, our readers.
A Salisbury Association exhibit, a classic summer street fair, a film series, a compelling Salisbury Forum Talk, a theater event with Sharon Playhouse, and a Gala.
