Join us for the Whittier Home Association October meeting on Thursday the 13th from 4:00 to 6:00pm at the Whittier Home.
Our speaker will be Ed Mair, a member of Amesbury Friends Meeting, who will give a presentation on Thomas Wentworth Higginson. Higginson was an American Unitarian minister, author and abolitionist who devoted much of his life to fighting for the rights of freed slaves, women and other disfranchised peoples.
It will be a fascinating program followed by seasonal refreshments. The cost is $10 per person. Please make a reservation by calling 978-388-1337.

Please join us for the Whittier Home Association Annual Meeting Thursday, April 9, at 5 PM. The meeting will be at the Hollow Café on Patten’s Pond in Amesbury.
There will be a served dinner with choices of chicken or fish. We will also have a raffle with some delightful prizes to tempt you! And music to soothe the soul.
A donation of $16 per person is requested to cover the costs, payable at the door by cash or check. We will send out a flyer soon with all the details.
Our program will focus primarily on the water damage that was done to the Whittier Home in January this year, outlining our plans for repair and restoration. More importantly, the meeting will focus on what you, as members, can do to support us in making the Home whole again.
We will have another change to the bylaws again this year related to streamlining our committees to make us more effective and efficient.
Since seating is limited we would ask that you make reservations by calling the Whittier Home at 978-388-1337. Please state how many there will be in your reservation, and your dinner preference of chicken or fish.
