Wednesday, June 22: two talks on local history

There are two history talks being given in our area this week—unfortunately at exactly the same time—a tough choice! Fortunately, it is likely these will become available on local access TV.

The next edition of Richard Gelpke’s excellent talks on
The History of Hudson’s Main Street
Wednesday, June 22nd, 7 p.m.
Hudson Senior Center, next to the Post Office on Church Street

This talk will focus on the area of Main Street from the Rotary to about Broad Street
Richard is an informative and engaging speaker with excellent photos so you can expect standing room only if you arrive late.

Paul Boothroyd of Maynard will be presenting:
The History of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge encompassing Hudson, Maynard, Stow and Sudbury, from the World War II years to the Present
Wednesday, June 22nd, 7 p.m.
At a meeting of the Friends of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge  at the visitors center

Paul will describe how the farms that the US Government took by eminent domain to build a supply and ammunition depot during the Second World War became a National Wildlife Refuge. This also could be SRO!
