Several members of the Society joined Holy Family Catholic School students, parents and faculty members for their annual Colonial Day event earlier this month. Mr. Alison shared information about being a merchant in Falmouth, Mrs. Gordon talked about Weedon's Tavern and Mrs. Taylor challenged the children to identify vegetables grown by farming families. Children learned about clothing and games and how Mrs. Thompson almost didn't get married because of the Stamp Act. The highlight of the afternoon was dancing "Morning Gazette" led by Dance Mistress FitzEfferie. A delightful day was had by all.
Thank you to all of our volunteers: Trip Wiggins, Sharon Brunacci, Elaine Sturgeon, Josephine Buchanan, Christopher Buchanan, Ashley Thompson, Kitty Taylor and Naomi McPherson.
