To the Editor:
On behalf of the Healthy Tri-Town Coalition, I would like to sincerely thank the Guides and attendees for their enthusiastic participation in the Tri-Town History Walking Tour Series which took place earlier this summer. In Marion, Judy Rosbe of the Marion Historical Society combined her knowledge of the town’s rich history with an appreciation for its homes, gardens, and the way Marion continues to evolve. For the second tour, Jennifer McIntire, Mattapoisett Historical Society President, led participants on a relaxing walk along the picturesque waterfront ending in Shipyard Park. Rochester’s Walking Tour was led by a dynamic duo – Rochester Historical Society’s Vice President, Connie Eshbach, and Secretary, Susan LaFleur. Many thanks to Sue’s husband, Herb LaFleur for adding another dimension of Rochester history and for helping to set up the HTTC refreshment tent and table.
We offer special thanks to Elise Frangos, Co-Founder of the Healthy Tri-Town Coalition, for her inspired leadership and coordination of the volunteers and guides. The Historic Tri-Town Walking Tour series was created to foster a sense of connectedness for community members of all ages. We look forward to another series of tours in the Fall of 2019. Registration is recommended and dates will be announced in early September.
