As shared last month, for the first time since the spring of 2019, we will hold an in-person Annual Meeting, to which all members are cordially invited. Printed announcements were mailed towards the end of last month, and many of you have already signed up to attend.
Details are shared below, along with a link to our website where you may register for the meeting only, or the meeting plus supper and entertainment, to feature a very special guest, and your fellow Museum member, Kevin T. Doyle, the award-winning Irish step dancer.
Please read on for information about our popular new self-guided walking tour brochures and for membership renewal information for the 2022-2023 fiscal year.
Finally, if you missed our April 15 e-newsletter, which included an article about last month’s work session at the Barney Street Cemetery, including photos, please check it out HERE.
Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 22nd!
Please do not send payments or other correspondence to our seasonal Thames Street Interpretive Center address.
