40th Annual Meeting and Reunion September 2020

Plans are now underway for our 40th annual meeting and reunion this year at the Best Western North Shore Hotel, Danvers, Massachusetts. In addition to celebrating our 40th reunion, we will be commemorating the 400th anniversary of the marriage of William Towne and Joanna Blessing in Great Yarmouth, England. The highlight of the reunion will be the annual meeting and dinner which will be held at the Peirce Farm Carriage House at Witch Hill in Topsfield, the home of Mary Estey's son, where she was hiding before being taken into custody. Read the details below and in upcoming issues of About Towne. You won't want to miss this milestone event!
