Local poets Keith Althaus, Marjorie Block, John Bonanni, Liz Bradfield, Mary Ann Larkin, Rosalind Pace, Patric Pepper, and Margaret Phillips joined us to mark the summer solstice by reading poems reflecting on the lazy, hazy days of summer. For those who couldn’t attend, here are some pictures of the poets reading their work.

Living Legacy Project 2019
“Living Legacy” is an exhibit of large format black and white portraits of Truro elders shot by photographer and artist Mason Morfit and accompanied by personal stories and memories of Truro from live interviews conducted by Ellen Anthony.
This project, which is in its fifth year, is funded by a grant from Truro Treasures, and continues the important work and project begun by writer and photographer, Helena Snow, and continued by artist Joyce Johnson.
The work will be displayed as an exhibition at the Highland House Museum from June 1 to June 30, 2019.
Our 2019 Living Legacies are: Peggotty Worthington Gilson, Carol Ramey Mooney, Paul Morris, Jane Hutchings Peters, Jane Bushey Ray, Emmanuel “Sonny” Silvia, and Dilys Merriss Staaterman.

Private Events at the Highland House Museum
As a member of the Truro Historical Society you have the opportunity to hold an event at the Highland House Museum! With a donation based on the size of your party (up to 100 people), you can celebrate a birthday, anniversary or wedding at one of Truro’s best known landmarks, the old Highland House, a hotel built on the Highlands in 1907. Located near the Highland Light in North Truro, it is a classic example of a turn-of-the-century summer resort hotel.
