Due to a sudden illness, our speaker needs to cancel tomorrow’s presentation on the Wachusett Reservoir.

Coming up next week: on Saturday, November 12, at 3PM in the Jones Library, local author Sarah Dixwell Brown will officially launch her book Regicide in the Family, about her ancestor John Dixwell.

John Dixwell was one of the judges who condemned Charles I to death for high treason in 1649. When the English monarch was restored in 1660, Dixwell fled to Amherica.

And in two weeks: on Friday, November 18, we will host a Zoom presentation featuring Mr. Erik Reardon, who will talk about his book, Managing the River Commons, with its discussion of the role that fish, and protection of fishing rights, played in the historical development of New England.
