On Friday, October 11, at 12:30 pm, the Sippican Woman’s Club will welcome a return visit by Seth Mendell, local historian and Mattapoisett resident, who will trace the colorful history of the largest of the Elizabethan Islands Naushon – including the pirates of Tarpaulin Cove, the American Revolution and the arrival of John Murray Forbes. In a previous program, Mendell traced Cuttyhunk’s history dating back to mariner Bartholmew Gosnold’s landing on the island in 1602.
Our meeting will be held at Handy’s Tavern, 152 Front St., Marion, and begins at 12:30 pm. The program is preceded by a finger-food luncheon, tea/coffee and a sweet, followed by a short business meeting. Guests are welcome, and membership is open to any resident of Marion or whose interests are in Marion.
