Freemasonry in Norwood: Unlocking a Legacy

Norwood-masonic-lodge-logoWednesday, January 11th, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Get a glimpse of the history of Freemasonry in Norwood through the lens of a legacy left by previous generations. Freemasons in Norwood are marking the 100-year anniversary of the Masonic Building on Day Street, where a few months ago they recovered a time capsule that had been placed under the cornerstone during the building’s 1916 dedication.

Attend their January 11 presentation to hear firsthand about the men behind the photos, documents, and news stories that have been preserved in the capsule for more than a century. To sign up, please call the library at 781-769-0200 x110 or 222, fill out the form below, or visit the Reference or Information Desk.

Contents from the time capsule will be on display in the lobby of the Morrill Memorial Library from January 4-30, 2017. Discover pictures and documents dating back to 1803, and how they’re part of a living history and tradition that Norwood’s Freemasons continue to carry on today.

Have you ever wanted to learn to knit, but don’t have the tools and aren’t sure who to ask? This program is for you! Several librarians, who happen to be veteran knitters, will lead a workshop about how to knit, from casting on to binding off. The class will work together on the same project, and all materials will be provided in a kit for $5.00. After you’ve taken the Learn to Knit Class you’ll be able to join us later in the month for Stitch Therapy to continue working on your project.

Space is very limited, so call 781-769-0200 x110, visit the Reference or Information Desk, or fill out the form below to sign up. Let us know if you have any questions! Participants must be 14 years of age or older.
