Hello, and a Happy Leap Day to you all! And a Happy Birthday to all of you who had the rare opportunity to be born on February 29. Today is a special day so go out and do something great!
I have two very important items for you today.
You may be aware that a new documentary on Blanche Ames has been released. William M. Ames and Kevin Friend, of BCN Productions, will hold a special showing of the film "Borderland: The Life and Times of Blanche Ames Ames" for our March 8 open house! The film will be shown at 1:30 p.m. at Queset, 51 Main Street, North Easton, directly behind the Ames Free Library. Queset, the former home of Oakes Angier Ames and Winthrop Ames, provides a marvelous setting for this special event. Seating is limited, and reservations are needed. To reserve your seat, please call the Museum at 508-238-7774. All reservations will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Someone will confirm your spot. In fairness to all our members, we will not take reservations for groups. Light refreshments will follow. Please note that the Museum will not be open as usual on that day.
We extend our hearty thanks to William M. Ames, and Kevin Friend for this special showing, and to the Ames Free Library for hosting us at Queset!
The second item of importance is to announce that we have been chosen as the March beneficiary of the Give Back Where It Countsprogram by Shaw's Supermarkets! When you go to Shaw's at 690 Depot Street, Easton, during the month of March, and purchase one of the reusable Give Back Where It Counts bags for $2.50, the Society will receive $1 for each bag sold! By purchasing this special bag, you not only help conservation efforts (and by the way, plastic bags will soon be disappearing in Easton, so why not get a head start on reusable bags?), but you will also provide support for your local history museum! Pass the word! We extend out thanks to Shaw's Supermarkets for supporting us!
Enjoy today and every day. Until next week,
