Heritage Days 2011

The Big Weekend arrives.

Tonight the Heritage Days kick off with the annual Luminaria up and down the coast.  Haley will be out there helping the cause and I am eager to see what we can get from the web cams.

Tomorrow all the historical sites are open from 1:00 to 4:00 for tours. I have been researching over the past few days and I have found a few new things to share.  Never mind the brickabrack for sale in the harbor - visit a historic site and put the Heritage back into Heritage Days.

Local historian David Corbin will be speaking tomorrow night at the Grand Army of the Republic Hall. Tickets are still available.  David has a wealth of knowledge and weaves together the neighborhoods of Scituate as well as anyone can. On August 19th Bob Chessia will speak on Thomas Lawson, drawing from his deep supply of stories and slides.  That event will also be at the GAR Hall.
