We are pleased to announce the Annual Meeting of the Military Historical Society of Massachusetts will return to the Longfellow’s Wayside Inn on Saturday, October 22, 2016. The meeting will be held in the second floor dining room.
Located at 72 Wayside Inn Road, Sudbury, the Inn has hosted travelers along the Boston Post Road since 1716. The Inn will also be hosting the popular Revolutionary War reenactment of the Battle of Red Horse Tavern.
For interested members, the encampment opens at 8:00am with demonstrations and events. The first sounds of battle will be heard at 12:30 and continue until 4:00. The encampment continues until 6:00pm.
During the 2016 MHSM Annual Meeting, reports by the Society’s Officers and the Nominating Committee will be made. Enclosed are the agenda, the Secretary’s 2016 Semi-Annual Meeting minutes, the Nominating Committee’s slate of proposed officers for vote by the membership, and a flier for the next meeting of the Union Club’s Civil War Committee.
Copies of the minutes and the Treasurer’s Report will be available for distribution at the meeting.
