2018 REUNION UPDATE #1
here.We have started to send out flash emails to highlight our plans for the upcoming Delano Kindred Reunion meeting in Fairhaven, MA, June 13 and 14, 2018. If you are a member and didn't receive one, we might not have your correct email address. If that's the case, please go to the "CONTACT US" tab and send us a note so we can update our records. Here is the first flash email: Plans are shaping up and this year?s reunion promises to be the best one yet! Stay tuned for the wonderful slate of speakers we have lined up which will be detailed in upcoming flash emails. Because there is tremendous interest in Old Dartmouth (Fairhaven, Acushnet, New Bedford, Westport and present-day Dartmouth) and the family names that pioneered this area (Delano, Cooke, West, Nye, Spooner, Hathaway, Taber, etc.) we will be inviting the Cooke Society, south coast historical societies, and the Fairhaven local community as well. However, we want to make sure that our membership is given first consideration. If you are planning on attending, please send in your registration ASAP. Our meeting room accommodates 100 people and after May 1st we will be encouraging other interested parties to attend. To quickly view or download the Reunion Registration Form, click
- Speakers will be delivering their talks on Wednesday, June 13 at the Millicent Library.
- A group picture will be taken in front of the Town Hall at 9:30 AM on Thursday, June 14.
- Immediately after the picture, at 10:00 AM, Chris Richard, Fairhaven?s Tourism Director, will conduct a 90 minute walking tour. Although the tour is primarily about Henry Huttleston Rogers? monumental gifts to the town, Chris will highlight HHR?s Delano ancestor, the Delano art gallery in the town hall, the gifts of Laura Delano Astor to the Millicent Library and much more. There will be sit-down breaks along the way, but comfortable shoes are always a good idea. This tour has been highly acclaimed. Huff Post called it one of the best immersive tours in New England and a recent article in the Boston Globe titled ?Is it Europe, No, it?s Fairhaven? is pasted below (without the pictures, and included here with permission).
