The Clinton Historical Society at the Holder Memorial will reopen for the season on Saturday, August 1, from 9 to noon with a special exhibit, "Workers of Wachusett". The exhibit has just arrived from the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum of Chestnut Hill, Mass, thanks to the cooperation of Executive Director Eric Peterson. The exhibit consists of about 15 poster-size images from the building of the Wachusett Dam at the turn of the last century. The photos will be on display every Saturday morning from 9 to noon through October.
OUTSIDE PROGRAMS FOR THE FALL!
Wednesday, October 28 (rain date is Thursday, October 29): HISTORIC WALKING TOUR OF WOODLAWN CEMETERY at 7 p.m. Meet in front of the chapel.
Dress warmly, bring a flashlight, and wear a mask although we should be able to social distance. About 60-90 minutes in length, we will introduce you to the final resting place of several important Clintonians and we'll also tell some eerie tales of other folks buried there. Look for details in the Item and our Twitter feed. Be prepared to walk a little!
FREE TO ALL BUT DONATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE END OF THE PROGRAM.
NOTE: This is NOT a children's Halloween parade but an historic tour of our town's cemetery.
November: HISTORIC WALKING TOUR OF CENTRAL PARK
Bring a flashlight and wear a mask, although we should be able to social distance. About one hour in length, we will talk about the history of each building around the park and how the park itself has changed over many years. Look for details on this website, the Item, and our Twitter feed. DONATIONS APPRECIATED
Saturday, December 12: ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY. We fully expect that we will be allowed to hold our annual holiday party this year, where we will be honoring our good friend, Harold Vanasse. Monies for this program have been provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. More details forthcoming.
