Greetings from historic Easton! We are getting ready to settle in for our first real winter storm Saturday night and Sunday. Well, it had to come sometime! A few thoughts on how to spend a wintry day:
Take a look at our programs on Ecat, Easton's cable channel. They taped a great talk on art given at last week's open house by Eveline Johnson. Check out her talk, and take a look at other Society programs and tours. Find a good book and a cozy spot, a cup of something warm (or something to warm you up!) and read! If you need some inspiration, take a look at Chronicle and learn about the Ames Free Library being a place of "hygge". Last week I encouraged you to check out the segment, and it is available online at the Chronicle website if you missed it. Find it here: https://www.wcvb.com/article/keep-warm-at-these-cozy-hideaways/25815392 Take in a movie. One of our members, Dick Grant, recommends "They Shall Not Grow Old", which features the use of technology and colorization with archival footage of British soldiers in World War 1 fighting at the front. Directed by Peter Jackson of "Lord of the Rings" fame, it is being shown on Monday the 21st in limited release across the country. Following the movie is a documentary on the making of it, so stay until the end. Follow this link to read more, enter your zip code, and you will find a list of theaters in your area that will be showing it. Dick has seen it once, and will be seeing it again at the Randolph cinemas. Thank you, Dick, for recommending it. Here is the link: https://www.fathomevents.com/events/they-shall-not-grow-old
Pick up some of our Reminiscences books or an historic Easton puzzle, or one of our other offerings. Why not learn more about the town we all know and love this winter?
Stay well, stay warm, and remember spring isn't so far off!
