I know the other guys will bust my chops for my latin above, mais ils peuvent bec mon chou!
FInally spring has arrived! But not without effort, considering yesterday’s rain/sleet/snow storm! But next Monday the 7th is an auspicious occasion – Cliff will be back with us after two weeks of holiday and it is also the actual 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 (in this case, 1814) raid on Pettipaug (Essex) by British sailors and Marines who then burned the ship in the cove to the waterline and very briefly occupied the town – Jerry Roberts should be joining us to sing his song composed about that event, and I think it a good and momentous occasion to gather and celebrate our local historical colour! One might go so far as to regard this as our 4th of July!
And don’t forget to look in on the events for the 1814 Commemoration!
