Thank you for joining us for our 2019 events
We are building our 2020 schedule so come back soon.
Tuesday February 4, 2020 at 6:30 PM As a followup up to our book club, Gaspee Days Historian Dr. John Concannon will give a lecture titled “The Conspiracy to Destroy the Gaspee” with interesting snippets about Prudence Island. It is an important piece of RI history, commemorated “over the bridges”. See Celebrate@gaspee.com and History@Gaspee.org.
The book club and lectures will be held at the Portsmouth Free Public Library, our co-sponsor. We are very grateful for this collaboration, as we do not currently have the ability to heat our 200 seat second floor church audience room, something very much on our wish list of capital improvements. Because seating at the library is limited, we recommend signing up in advance on the library’s website or by calling the library at 683-9457.
Saturday February 22, 2020 Varnum Memorial Armory Visit 6 Main St East Greenwich RI. PHS members will be treated to a special tour to see among other treasures several items of particular interest to us. Meet there at 11:00 AM, or meet at the PHS parking lot at 10:00 AM to caravan/carpool together. Consider hanging out together for lunch afterward at a local eatery.
