Hello from a very damp Easton! Saturday, April 28th is our spring bottle and can drive, held at the Museum from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine! We will be collecting returnable bottles and cans in memory of Ken Martin who ran this important fundraiser for us for many years. You might think that a nickel doesn't go very far, but each of them added together adds up to a significant amount, and each one is very much appreciated. Hope to see you! I would also like to let you know that Alfred G. Morse passed away this past Monday at the age of 94. Alfred was the grandson of Alfred B. Morse, the builder of the Morse car, who himself was the grandfather of E.J.W. Morse who founded the Morse ente

The event, sponsored by Avery Lee Williams, will still be held at Oakes Ames Memorial Hall between 7-11 p.m. as previously noted. Many people associate today with bad luck, and try to avoid doing things, or even refuse to go to work! The number 13 for some reason or another is considered unlucky and sometimes avoided. I have heard stories about hotels and tall buildings that do not have a "13th floor" and lists that do not include "13" within their counts. I do know of families with 13 or more children (s

Hello all, and happy Friday! Hard to believe it is April and there is more snow coming. The Red Sox have provided a nice touch of spring though with a thrilling win at a very windy and cold Fenway Park yesterday! Today we celebrate two important women in Easton's history, one past, and one present. The New York Times has a series of articles running the obituaries of women who have earned a place in American history for their many and diverse accomplishments. The Times is recognizing these women by publishing their obituaries because they were "overlooked" at the time of their passing. They are worth reading about, and you will find the person whose link is included below to be of much int
