    Rounders to Baseball

    Monday, March 2, 2020
    7:30 pm
    First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church
    26 North Street, Medfield

    Award-winning storyteller Anne Barrett will present Rounders to Baseball on Monday, March 2, at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church at 7:30 pm.

    Baseball in some form has been a favorite pastime for generations, from a rousing (and forbidden) game of stoolball at Plimoth Plantation to Civil War soldiers playing in training camps and prisons. It bred gambling scandals and rivalries so bitter, a World Series was cancelled. Follow the game’s social, historical and professional evolution from 19th century “townball” to the formation of the major leagues.

    It’s not just for baseball fans – it’s for anyone who enjoys history! The presentation is free and open to the public. Please join us!

    Celebrating 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote

    Monday, April 6, 2020
    7:30 pm
    First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church
    26 North Street, Medfield

    Monday, April 6, we will feature Thea Iberall, playwright and co-producer of the long-running play, We Did It for You! Women’s Journey Through History. Thea will talk about some of the key personalities and events in the 70-plus year campaign as women struggled to get the right to vote, as guaranteed in 1920 by the Nineteenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.

    Selected skits from We Did It for You! will be performed at this historical society presentation.

    We Did It for You! is a musical that tells the story of how women got their rights in America, told by the women who were there. It began New England performances in Medfield in 2017 and is currently touring the Metrowest area.
