Celebrated historian, scholar, writer and teacher, Dan Cruson will be the guest speaker at Citizens for Easton’s annual meeting, Wednesday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Easton Public Library. Dan is the author of Redding and Easton, as well as many historical explorations of Newtown and environs. At CFE’s annual celebration of Easton’s heritage, he will “show and tell” many historical oddities and facts about Easton’s cemeteries.
As Dan has noted, “I’m always looking for things that people might not know.” To that end, his presentation will unearth facts about local cemeteries and reveal how our 18th century forefathers lived and died. We’ll learn about the origins and meanings of local grave markers and traditions about death and dying. The evening will include a slide show and question and answer session. Dan will also sell and sign books. Come to meet and mingle with fellow CFE members and neighbors during this fascinating look below Easton’s surface into graves and buried secrets.
There will also be a dessert buffet. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
