Following is a press release I just received, and since the event is before the October issue comes out, I thought I would share with you with a post. This museum is amazing (I was there years ago, and overdue for another visit), and Walpole’s Steve Dalessio is Chair of the Board of Trustees. Make a day of it, visit the museum, then cross the longest covered bridge in the US, and turn north to visit and picnic at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site
