Ancient Voices: Pilgrimage to the Buttonball Tree and Riverside Cemetery Sunday, July 29, 11:00am-1:00pm
This month our sojourning leads to Sunderland, Massachusetts, which just celebrated its 300th anniversary. The roots are very deep in this place. We will first soak in the inspiration of the Buttonball Tree, a giant American Sycamore that was alive when the Constitution was written--and utterly magnificent--before traversing just up the road to Riverside Cemetery. Set in a glade between rich Hadley farm land and the Connecticut River, there are headstones from waaaay back. As always, we saunter, reflect, encounter, write and share. A love offering for the work of Art & Soul is welcomed. It is helpful to know if you plan to come: firstname.lastname@example.org or 413-348-2385
Directions: The Buttonball Tree is located on North Main Street (Route 47 North), less than a 1/4 mile from the traffic light on the left. The entrance to Riverside Cemetery is on South Main Street, just past the Millstone Market.
