Join us for a tour of the recent residential conversion of the U.C.C. Meetinghouse at 142 Amherst Road. The main structure was built in 1837 and it has evolved over the years. The tour will include some discussion of the building’s history as well as green building retrofit work. Architect/owner Carey Clouse will educate us on why she chose to take up residency in a church.

Location: 142 Amherst Road
For more information contact Linda Campbell Hanscom, 413-323-7377.

Please join us for this annual community event, a traditional New England boiled dinner followed by a home-made pie auction. David Jean will again cater the dinner. Senator Stan Rosenberg returns to delight and entertain us as the “pie auctioneer.” Former State Rep. Ellen Story and current State Rep. Solomon Goldstein Rose will be guests of honor.

Tuesday
November, 14 2017 ~ 7:00 pm

Annual Meeting at 7 pm; followed by a presentation at 7:30 pm
In anticipation of Pelham’s 275th Anniversary in 2018, Tom Fanning will provide an introduction to the Shays Rebellion, an event whose import went far beyond our town and foreshadowed the class struggles that occur even today. The Shays Rebellion has been both reviled and praised over the 235 years since the yeoman farmers of the western counties rose up to express their displeasure with the “coastal elite” in the east. This presentation will feature a timeline of forced court closings and other actions that constituted the actual rebellion. A lively discussion of this and other related events is planned.

Location: Pelham Library Ramsdell Room co-sponsored with the Pelham Library
For more information contact Tom Fanning, 413-253-5404.
