A BIG THANK YOU!
The Meeting House and its treasured Revere Foundry bell will be preserved for the future thanks to the Town of Truro and many generous donors.
The Friends of the Truro Meeting House marked the successful completion of its five-year preservation project with a Town-wide Celebration on Monday, July 3, at five o’clock at the Meeting House.
Begun in 2012 and completed this year, the project received major funding provided by the Town of Truro through its Community Preservation Act Program along with support from the Friends.
The July 3 event was our Big Thank You that included greetings from Senator Julian Cyr, Representative Sarah Peake, and Paul Wisotzky, Chair of the Truro Board of Selectmen. Te event featured the ringing of the bell, rousing music, and special awards followed by refreshments donated by Truro restaurants and shops for everyone’s enjoyment.
As part of the festivities there were two exhibits in June: one at the Truro Public Library and another at the Truro Historical Society Highland House Museum, showing the preservation work done during the past five years. Also, there was a field trip for students at the Truro Central School to the Meeting House hosted by the Friends.
A SUMMER TO CELEBRATE!
Even before the Big Thank You to Truro, the Friends of the Truro Meeting House are making this a summer to celebrate with the welcomed return of the prized performance of the Atlantic Ensemble on June 20. New at the Meeting House was Truro’s own Stephen Kinzer, the noted journalist and political scholar, whose latest book, The True Flag, explores the origins of American foreign policy as driven by an imperialist agenda.
On a different note, Irish Music debuts in a program sponsored by the Parish. Also scheduled are the always popular Outer Cape Chorale Chamber Singers in July, the Swing Band in August, and historian Robert Allison revealing even more surprising sides to the renaissance genius of Benjamin Franklin. Did you know Franklin wrote a book on chess? Also in August, the Blessing of the Animals by Parish pastors Anastasia and Chad Kidd will attract a growing audience of pets and their proud owners.
