The Yankee Division of WWI

Saturday, November 17th at 12:30


In commemoration of the centennial of the end of the First World War, we are hosting a talk by the Cape Cod Military Museum about the 26th Yankee Division.

The 26th "Yankee" Division was created from the National Guard units of the New England states. It was the first full US Army division to arrive in France in 1917. Approximately 15,000 Massachusetts men served in the 26th, making it the largest unit the state sent to the war.

There will be a discussion of the big picture battles and the personal stories of the Doughboys in those battles. Where possible humorous anecdotes are mixed in to the horrifying story of the world’s first war on an industrial scale.

Author Talk: Sedona Summer

Saturday, November 10th at noon


We are hosting a talk with local author Sedona Summer on Saturday, November 10th at noon. Sedona will be discussing her two books, “Free Your Soul” and “On the Rosy Path.”

Sedona felt motivated to share what she learned while recovering from the death of her husband, with the hope of helping others experiencing similar loss. What started as a memoir took on a life of its own and became a self-help book, "Free Your Soul," a very personal story, with spirituality at its core.

'On the Rosy Path' is a continuation of the first book and addresses the interactions with our acquaintances, our neighbors, our town, our country, and our world. It is a personal spiritual development book that offers petals to be sprinkled on any path to encourage us to start living our lives with more passion and enthusiasm. 

Join Sedona to hear how she changed her life by adopting a more spiritual approach to living. Find balance, awareness, insight, and understanding to be capable of taking a risk and be willing to accept the outcome.
