While not directly related to the Mill River, both these events will appeal to MRGI members — first, a play and second, a paddle.
1. Join us for an outing to the William Cullen Bryant Homestead in Cummington for a performance of “A Fiery and Still Voice,” a site-based living history play about the poet. Here’s what playwright Priscilla Hellweg of Enchanted Circle Theater says about Bryant:
“He was an amazing man — fiery abolitionist, conservationist, statesman, journalist, and poet. Who knew HE was the reason Lincoln became elected (and then he was furious with him for only gradually emancipating the slaves)?! He had the original idea for Central Park! He founded the Metropolitan Museum of Art!”
Members of the Mill River Greenway Initiative and Sojourner Truth Memorial Committee can get tickets through us at the member price of $9/each. We invite you to bring a picnic lunch and walk the beautiful farm and woodland trails of the Bryant Homestead afterward.
Wednesday, August 17
Show time 11:45am (meet at Bryant Homestead 11:30am)
Please RSVP directly to Gaby Immerman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join us for this outing!
