The Saugus Public Library has arranged for the Lexington Minutemen to appear at the Saugus Iron Works, apparently in connection with a summer reading program for elementary-school children about Massachusetts and the Revolutionary War (missing an opportunity, given Saugus’ excellent position to encourage reading about the seventeenth century . . . but we’ll limit the editorializing here) on Wednesday 12 July 2017 (the rain date is the following Wednesday 19 July) (and apologies for the very short notice). We will be part of the day’s programming; the library’s program runs from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, but we’ll be at the park from 11:00 am until the park closes at 5:00 pm. (The library’s splash page for the event refers to us as “Iron Works Reenactors”, but their calendar listing and the Salem events calendar both mention us by name–ahead of the Lexington Minutemen, in fact, so there’s some consolation.) If you have free time during the day, come see us; and if you haven’t seen the park yet, you absolutely should: it’s great.
