Association for Gravestone Studies Western New England Chapter, Spring Meeting

The Association for Gravestone Studies announces its quarterly meeting and walking tour; Saturday, June 4. We'll meet at Amherst's West Cemetery, located in downtown Amherst, at 1 PM. 

We had considered meeting at an indoor venue in the morning for presentations by John Hanson and Bob Drinkwater, or if that was not feasible (due to Covid restrictions), to do so via Zoom the previous evening. However, since these presentations would be, essentially, re-enactments of previously recorded presentations, we thought it might be simpler to just provide links to the YouTube videos, for folks to view if and when they wished, prior to our meeting at West Cemetery in Amherst, MA, at 1PM.

VENUE UPDATE: Strings @ the Strong Presents: Bella Musica Ensemble

Jones Library Woodbury Room 43 Amity Street, Amherst, MA, United States

The Amherst Historical Society Summer Concert Series is held in the Museum garden; all performances are free and open to the public. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
