And, don’t forget this year’s annual meeting on Sunday, June 28th, 1 – 3 pm~

We'll start with a brief recap of the year's activities, elect several Board members, and then welcome our guest speaker, archaeologist Megan Theriault who will take us through Georgetown history as revealed by artifacts left behind by those who once also called this island home. Megan will decode prehistoric arrowheads, stone tools, colonial gunflints and clay pipe stems, as well as coins, buttons, marbles, and pottery, among other items.
