FROM HORSE-DRAWN TO HORSELESS CARRIAGES

On Sunday, June 10, 2018 the Sunday Afternoon Lecture Series will present “FROM HORSE-DRAWN TO HORSELESS CARRIAGES, and how we got from then til now” at 6:30 PM at the headquarters of the Dartmouth Historical & Arts Society’s Russells Mills Schoolhouse, 1205 Russells Mills Road, Dartmouth, MA. The lecturer, Richard Cutler, is an HCEI (Horseless Carriage Education Institution) Trustee and past President of the Horseless Carriage Club, an international organization established by those that restore and, more importantly, drive these cars. All cars were built prior to 1915, commonly referred to as the brass car era. Richard and his wife, Gini, became interested in the antique cars in 1999 after spending a day in one on Martha’s Vineyard. They now own a 1911 Maxwell, two 1914 Model T Fords and two Model A Fords.

Once Upon A Generation

Please Join the Freetown Historical Society for this great event!

“Building bridges between the generations’ one story at a time.”

Please join us for a peek into the young lives of our sensational seniors! The performance is the culmination of a ten week intergenerational program, connecting our local Lakeville and Freetown seniors with experienced storytelling students from the George R. Austin Intermediate School and Freetown/Lakeville Middle School.

Travel back in time and listen to a young man’s personal experiences during the Civil Rights Era, a toddler’s journey through her teen years in the poverty of the Great Depression, a teenager’s great adventure through a blinding New Hampshire snow storm and so much more. These true stories are touching and powerful glimpses into the past, of lives changed, transformed, and enriched by their experiences.

This program is about building bridges between the generations and both the seniors and students delight in each other’s company! These stories will be performed (not read) by seasoned student storytellers and we guarantee you will be entertained and enthralled!
