Hello history lovers! This update brings you three things that will make you proud of Easton and your Society!
First of all, congratulations to Hazel Varella for being recognized with an "Unsung Heroine Award" by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women! She was nominated by State Representative Claire Cronin and was honored with an award during a ceremony at the Massachusetts State House. The award is given to "recognize extraordinary women across the Commonwealth who perform unheralded acts on a daily basis to make their homes, cities and towns better places to live." With a long career as an educator who has influenced countless young people in our community, Hazel is most deserving of this recognition. Please join me in congratulating her.

Second, the Society was recently featured in both the Enterprise and Easton Journal with a story about a very special item that has recently been donated to the Museum.

This is the fifth year of this festival held each June at the Governor Ames Estate. The Legacy features art, music, food, and fun for all between Noon -5 p.m. This is a free event and is open to the public. There are many events planned for the afternoon. The Legacy is presented by the Easton Shovel Town Cultural District and the Easton Lions Club. We will be sponsoring one of the musical acts during the afternoon. At the Museum, we are proud to host the Juried Junior Art Exhibition, featuring artwork by people age 18 and under. Stop in and see this display of wonderful art, photographs, and sculptures! Encourage our young people and their interest in the arts. I hope to see you Sunday!
I hope you all have a great week!
