The Maynard Historical Society will be meeting on Monday, April 27th at 7pm.
The meeting will be held in the assembly room at POWDER MILL CIRCLE. We’re staying here for a few more meetings as the Town Hall renovations continue.
There will be a short business meeting before the program. Actually it is our Annual Meeting, which includes a secretary and treasurer’s report and election of trustees — but that doesn’t take too long.
As we do not have a meeting in May we are honoring Memorial Day with a DVD program “Navy Heroes of Normandy”. Over 1000 American sailors were killed in the D-Day operations, but until 2008 there was no memorial to their sacrifice. The program discusses the contributions of those sailors and the construction and dedication of a monument in their honor.
There is a Maynard connection to the program. The Director of Photography for the program is Jim Karpeichik, who grew up in town and graduated from MHS in 1977..
Refreshments will be served. The meeting is open to the public.
