Members may be interested in looking at the following materials received at the CCGS Library.
The Autumn 2013 Atwood Log, newsletter of the Chatham Historical Society, announces the annual Hearth Warming at the Atwood House Museum, the weekend of December 14 and 15. On Saturday Dec. 14 at 2PM there will be a talk by Joan Bines about her book Words they lived by: Colonial New England speech, then and now. There's also an interesting article about Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, the only federally designated wilderness area in Massachusetts. In 2014 there will be series of lectures and other activities at the Atwood House Museum on the theme "Constructing Wilderness", to mark the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.
Historic preservation is the subject of two articles in the Winter 2013 issue of Post Scripts from the Bourne Historical Society. Beth Ellis makes the case for engaging in historic preservation, and an accompanying article describes the restoration of the Valley Farm Thrift and Community Garden in Bourne.
