We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Veteran's Day is a time for reflection and thankful for our freedoms, our lands, and our history.

Eleanor Bradley and her husband, Ralph, experienced two World Wars together -- before they were married, in World War I, in which Ralph served, and World War II, when they supported troops at home, and served in many ways in Boston.  This Veteran's Day, we'll read some of the letters that Ralph sent during the First World War, and share some of Eleanor's reflections on the Second World War.  

Come join us for an evening of reflection, sharing stories, and giving thanks.

We will begin with readings, visit some of the special places both inside and on the grounds that were places the Bradleys found peace and happiness on their land -- in the gardens, woodlands and within the comfort of their home.

Program begins at 6 pm, and ends with candle lighting at 8 pm.

Members: $5;  Nonmembers: $10.  Veterans and their families: Free.
