Louisa May Alcott
Saturday, April 18 from 2 - 3:30 pm
Join us for a captivating living history experience with Jan Turnquist, Executive Director of Orchard House, the Alcott family home in Concord, MA. Delightful and engaging, the author of Little Women brings us behind the scenes stories from her life: family friendships with Thoreau and Emerson; her unconventional upbringing in poverty; and the family love that inspired her to write an American classic. From the youngest reader to the most sophisticated Alcott scholar to First Lady Laura Bush, audiences have acclaimed Jan's performances, which are geared for ages 6 to 106. This interactive presentation is an inspiring experience for the mind and heart.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Pepperell Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
Pepperell Green Up
Sat., April 18 - Sunday, May 3
The 19th annual Pepperell Green-Up begins! The Green-Up is a community cleanup of litter and trash on roadsides and public lands in Pepperell. A map of Pepperell is posted in the Lawrence Library. Stop by to sign up and pick up some orange garbage bags. Public lands to pick up include roadsides, sidewalks, parking lots, schools, the Rail Trail, conservation lands, streams, hiking trails and other areas. Anyone can participate – individuals, families, organizations, businesses, etc, and each person’s efforts make a difference! Filled bags can be left curbside. Because of the long winter and lingering snow, the Green-Up is being held over two weeks this year. The Pepperell Highway Department will pick up the bags along the roadside beginning Monday, May 4. Thank you for participating and for taking pride in Pepperell !
Thank you to the following organizations, whose donations allowed purchase of bags for the Pepperell Green-Up: Donelan’s, Nashoba Conservation Trust, North Middlesex Savings Bank, and the Pepperell Garden Club.
