We welcome all to attend, though only Friends of Pequot Library can vote on our slate of officers.
At 5:00 p.m., Vin Cipolla will present The Past, Rediscovered: Recovering New England’s Voices. The work of Historic New England spans 111 years of preserving the region’s antiquities, and sharing the stories of New Englanders up to the present day. Vin Cipolla will discuss some of the extraordinary homes, landscapes and collections of the organization, and how Historic New England is working to recover voices that may have been lost along the way.
