General Meeting

Professor John Kennedy  addressed the meeting on the historic, but often overlooked life of Lucy Stone, the first woman in Massachusetts to earn a college degree in 1859. She was active in the leadership for for Women's Voting Rights. It is significant that the nation will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment in 2020.  

The Epicurean Group toured the Cape Cod 1830 Salt Company in West Chatham with Paul Shibles, owner, who explained the process of extracting salt from the sea water that he gets from Nantucket Sound.
