History and Genealogy
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts an extraordinary series of events coupled with the hysterical reaction of the community, resulted in what is referred to as the Salem Witch Hunt. Hundreds of individuals were tried for the crime of witchcraft and many were executed as a result. Join Active Minds as we seek to understand this astounding moment in our country's early history.

The WriteNOW! informal writing group. Why informal? There will be a facilitator (Carol Darrow, CG) who will help the interaction, but there will not be a formal lecture. Instead, there will be actual writing and sharing of that writing. We'll also talk about setting a goal for your writing output (book, article, short story, multi-volume family history) and organizing information in an interesting way for your reader.
