LIBRARY PROGRESSIVE DINNER

Buckland Public Library Begins its 125th Anniversary with a Progressive Dinner
On Saturday, May 3rd join us once again for the Historic Upper Buckland Progressive Dinner to benefit the Buckland Public Library. Enjoy the long awaited spring as we stroll through Buckland center, savoring the past as well as the present in a classic New England setting. Pick up your reserved tickets and map in front of the Buckland Historical Society on Upper Street at 5:00 p.m. to begin your walk.

The first stop will be at the Zenas Graham House (now, the Bird’s Nest B&B) on Charlemont Rd. Built in 1797 by Zenas Graham for his new bride Abigail, this home eventually housed the couple as well as their twelve children.   Here our hosts Pat and Cyndy Weeks and Dennis Patterson will serve a variety of appetizers, both hot and chilled, with meat-lover, vegetarian and gluten-free options accompanied by coffee, tea, juice or wine.

A short walk down the hill on Cross Street will bring you to the Nuel Townsley house, later known as ”the Stetson place,” built in 1820 when Townsley brought his new bride Submit Putnam to reside there. Think of the 9 Townsley children raised here as hosts Pam and David Sand serve beef stew, sweet sausage & zucchini stew, or a hearty vegetable stew with rolls, bread and a curried carrot slaw accented with a sparkling cider.

Our final course will be served by hosts Cass Russillo and Kate Davenport in the Griswold Room of the Buckland Public Library. Built in 1890 as the “Public Church Library” of the First Congregational Church (Mary Lyon Church), the library was contained in just one room for most of its history. As part of a 2011 renovation and expansion, the Griswold Room wood floors were re-finished and its original table and chairs restored. Here, in celebration of our 125th anniversary travel back in time as we light this historic room only with candles while you enjoy a selection of fine locally made desserts, coffee and tea.

Make reservations before April 29th by calling 413-489-3114. A $40.00 donation per ticket to benefit the library is requested. This is a “sell out” event so call now to ensure yourself a seat. Limited parking is available at each home for guests who require transportation.
