Reminder: Society Meeting Tonight – Nov 24th

After a short update on the Society’s collection, Roy Helander will recount the chronology of Alku, Maynard’s Finnish Temperance Society.

Before the rise of mass media, groups like the temperance societies formed the base of social life with meetings, activities, sports events, talks, drama groups, music.

We hope you can join us at the Library in the Fowler School, 3 Tiger Drive (off of Great Road / Rt. 117).  The Library is located down the hall to the right as you come in the main entrance.

Issue #45 of Maynard Memories is out

If you are a member of the Maynard Historical Society you should have received (or will shortly receive) issue #45 of Maynard Memories, our newsletter edited by Nancy Wasiuk.

This newsletter features a story written by Society members David Mark and Jean D’Amico who live at 10 Maple Street and chronicle the history of their home and the seven other families that have lived there since it was built in the 1870’s.  They did some great research and put together a wonderful story.

Bill Wickey also submitted a short article recalling Maynard in the 1940’s.

Maynard Memories is one of the benefits of membership in the Society.  If you are not a member, please consider joining.  If you are a member (and even if you aren’t) and have a story to tell about Maynard’s History — or just a memory about growing up or living in Maynard — please consider writing a short article for the newsletter.  We’d love to hear from you.
