Opinion: Thanks from the Rochester Historical Society

May 25, 2021

To the editor: 

We at the Rochester Historical Society want to thank everyone who attended the reopening of the Museum on May 22. A special thanks to Capt. Bonney's, Friends' Market at Plumb Corner, Cervelli's, Fieldstones', Adrian's and Matt's Blackboard for their generous donations to our raffles.

The Historical Society and Museum are supported exclusively by memberships, donations, bake sales and sales of our Rochester clothing, books, and other items. Because of this we rely on our community to support us and keep us in the business of preserving and sharing Rochester's history, which of course, includes both Marion and Mattapoisett prior to the mid-1800s.

The current exhibit, which puts on display many of the artifacts donated over the years , will be available through the summer and early fall. The Museum will be open from 1 to 3 p.m. on the second and fourth Sundays of June and July, or by appointment. To arrange a visit, call either Sue LaFleur at 508-295-8908 or Connie Eshbach at 508-763-4932. Also, look for info about our upcoming yard sale on Aug. 7. Monthly evening meetings will resume in September. Again, thank you.
