Weekly Update

Hello! It is a blustery and damp day here in North Easton, but the weather does not dampen our spirits! Tomorrow we will hold our fall bottle and can drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. rain, shine, or even wind. The drive is held in memory of Ken Martin, who ran this important fundraiser for many years. He faithfully collected returnable bottles and cans and then brought them to a redemption center where all of those nickels became a very valuable donation to the Society. We honor Ken's faithfulness, commitment, and hard work by continuing to hold this event. Volunteers are always welcome! The coffee will be on! While you are here you can check out a few recent additions, including a portable p

The Power Of Influence

My father’s passing a few months ago has caused me to take some time and reflect on a life well lived. A flood of memories came back to me: memories of a great man who strongly believed in being patriotic, doing the right thing, helping out family, friends, neighbors, and strangers alike wherever help was needed. He always had a smile and a joke for you, and he never forgot a face. Through him, I learned the value of family, hard work, and appreciated my Italian heritage. He kept his promises and was a loyal friend to many people he met over the years. This included four Easton families who, along with my parents, influenced my future. Dad always liked antiques, and he dabbled with them when

Greetings from Easton! It is a beautiful fall day here, but our thoughts are with those who are affected by the historical storm in Texas. Hurricane Harvey inflicted damage to an extent never seen, exceeding that caused in New Orleans more than a decade ago. Many businesses have "disaster plans" and I think this will cause many museums to think along those same lines of protection. A very difficult lesson to learn. Great news! Reminiscences: Volume 8 is now available at the Museum! Hot off the presses, Hazel Varella and Dan Pare have put together another terrific selection of articles featuring new research, original poetry, and recent events as well as items from our archives.
